I have recently returned from a wonderful photo tour given by Jill Flyer.
Jill has lived in Ajijic for 10 years and knows the area like the back of her hand.
She took me to places that had the feel of the real Mexico. Very few tourists. Unusual places. Beautiful areas with many great photo opportunities. She was very flexible and took my needs and interests into consideration when she designed my tours.
Jill is very knowledgeable about photography and Mexico. I highly recommend her tours.

Thank you for making the past week an enjoyable and informative introduction to central Mexico, especially Ajijic. I'm sure we could never have found all the wonderful things you showed us without your guidance.
Mezcala, a village steeped in history, is an opportunity many photographers do not encounter. The array of focal points are most diverse and with Jill's suggestions and guidance, I brought home excellent photos. More importantly than the photos, I bought home new found photo knowledge she shared with me, that I continue to use as my photography skills increase and improve. Thanks, Jill for sharing all you did with me. It was a great day.
I attended a photography workshop run by Jill Flyer for one week in early November. During that time, I had so much fun! Whether it was attending a digital photography workshop, tooling around Mexican villages, or dancing merengue at a local restaurant - I had an absolute blast. Additionally, I am more confident as a photographer and my resulting prints are all the better for it. I will never forget my time with Jill Flyer, who is a truly remarkable host, and I hope to visit again and again!

When I was in Ajijic with Jill Flyer, we took daily trips in the Ajijic/Chapala area, which were really interesting and photographically fascinating. We ""lucked out"" on Chrismas Day in Mezcala when they were having a town fiesta, with everyone in costume. The whole town was there in the plaza and I got some fascinating pictures. One day I especially enjoyed was the trip around the lake, to the small towns and to Petatan, the little fishing village, where we had the opportunity to see the thousands of pelicans that come there every year and to talk to some of the local inhabitants. I got to see a part of Mexico that I've never seen before, even though I have been to Mexico many, many times. Truly an unusual experience.
