Good light,

GetYourGuide Photo Team

We created the GetYourGuide Photography Project. From now on photographers from around the world can book for one of our 15.000 Tours and take pictures of the tours. They upload the pictures and wait until they are selected. Once selected the photographer gets paid for each picture. It is an amazing way to travel for cheap and even gain money with it. If you are interested feel invited to read our blog (http://www.getyourguide.com/photography) or join the club right away!

Happy snapping
