“The price was great, and for me, was far better value for money than going on one of the holiday company coach tours. With Dan, you get personal attention, local knowledge, and the ability to stop where and when you want if a photo opportunity comes up. If anyone is visiting Cancun or nearby, and has an interest in photography, they should definitely get in contact with Cancun Photo Walks.”
