"I thought our trip to Costa Rica was terrific! The places you selected for us to visit were interesting and photogenic. The local guides were superb—especially Esteban. Tanya, you were always helpful and pleasant. Dan, you were generous with your knowledge of photography and computer-related subjects. Many thanks for a wonderful trip."

"It’s February 9th and I can’t believe that Cathy and I have been home for two weeks already. Our experiences in Africa are so fresh it seems as though we were just there. I’ve enjoyed blogging about our experiences over the past 10 days, hoping to share with you just a tiny flavor of what it was like. It truly was a powerful experience and we hope to go back some day. Perhaps to Botswana or Namibia.
There are many things that made this a wonderful experience. At the top of the list are Dan and Tanya Cox. We have taken two tours now with Dan and Tanya and both were extremely enjoyable. Tanya is a magnificent organizer and makes sure that all of our needs are met. The tours are designed to place you in the best locations and give you the best opportunities for capturing great photographs and having great experiences. These tours are not highly structured photography teaching sessions but more informal learning opportunities."

"Traveling with Dan and Tanya is a truly special and delightful experience! Dan's incredible expertise in all things photo and Tanya's exceptional attention to details and sensitivity to needs (be those of guests, guides, or the environment, cultures and wildlife you are going to see) makes for an amazingly well balanced team! Our recent trip to Kenya was just AWEsome - - in the true spirit of the word! The wildlife viewing was fantastic! In spite of heavy rains creating tall grasses, our exceptional guides (hand picked by D and T) consistently found not only wonderful wildlife sitings, but fabulous photographic opportunities! Along with exceptional accommodations and delicious and plentiful food the overall Kenya experience was absolutely incredible! Thank you Tanya and Dan for creating SUCH a wonderful and memorable experience!!"

"It's one of the best trips we've taken with superb guides! "Even though I'm a point and shoot photographer, I felt very much a part of the program. Dan was there to answer questions....but most of all, I was most impressed with the guides, making sure each one of us had a chance to get 'that shot' of an animal!
"The individual attention was phenomenal; the tour guides took care of every detail; one would not have to carry a camera to see and enjoy all the wonderful animals of Africa. It was a trip of a lifetime and I would go back again!!"
Pat Alley, Arizona
"Class and comfort all the way. Natural Exposures photo tours are run with the smoothness and efficiency of high-end travel outfits."
Miriam Stein, Washington DC
"In the truest sense, expert guides in all the fauna and flora of Kenya and greater East Africa accompanied by a wizened mentor of photography."
Steven Chang, Hawaii
"I am so happy I went to Kenya again. Everything was handled so smoothly and so well. Dan and Tanya made everything easy. We stayed at great lodges where the food was fantastic and the accommodations first-rate. I will definitely be traveling with you all again."
Allison McClure, California
"If you visit Africa, you will want to experience the land, the people, and the wildlife. On this, my first trip to Africa, I have been fortunate to travel with Dan and Tanya Cox. They put together a trip that far exceeded my expectations using first-class accommodations and Kenya’s best wildlife guides. The sights, the photography, the food, and the comradely will always be remembered."
Art Simmons, Texas
"This is our third trip to Africa and the first time with Dan and Tanya and it was the best of all three trips."
Lynne & Jim Edwards, Washington
"The Kenya trip was our vacation of a lifetime – just when you thought it couldn’t get any better – every day it did. Excellent and knowledgeable guides, small group experience with fellow photographers was a very enjoyable trip."
Joanne Dougherty, Hawaii
"Hi Tanya and Dan, Thank you very much for the goodies. Thank you also for such a great trip. I used to say that my best trip was Antarctica, but the Galapagos has it beat. I shared our experience with my friend who went before us, and she admitted that her tour was very ordinary. You both put yourselves into your trips and make us feel like family. That will stick with us always. We are now negotiating with each other about our next trip with you all."
