Important information
Know before you go
• There is no minimum group size for this activity
• No prior knowledge is needed
• A pack of Polaroid original color film is included. If you would like to take more than 8 pictures, additional film can be purchased from your guide at €19 per pack
• The only historical information provided is what’s included in the free printed booklet you'll receive at the start of the tour. The main focus of the tour is taking photos
• Instant photography involves a chemical process and the weather conditions may have an impact on the pictures, especially in the winter. You will be given advice on how to take the best possible pictures, but an unexpected outcome is part of the experience, and that’s exactly what makes Polaroid pictures a one-of-a-kind souvenir
