- Foto Ruta operate city photography tours as a way of discovering a city... and learning a few techniques along the way. Many of the tours are aimed at interested amateurs rather than dedicated photography enthusiasts (although they are covered too), so iPhone photography, for example, features large. Foto Ruta started in Buenos Aires and is quickly expanding the franchise so now there are Spanish & English tours in Santiago (Chile), London, and Barcelona.
- Pangolin Photo Safaris are based in the Chobe river area in Botswana, where they have special vehicles and hides for photographic expeditions. They also operate photo tours to Antarctica.
