I did the March 2019 Palau trip with Ran Mor and could not have been happier. I cannot say enough good things about Ran and his company. Really, words do not do him justice, you have to experience it first hand and go on one of his trips!
Ran is a consummate professional, I would highly recommend any of his trips for any standard of photographer. The recent trip had first time compact users all the way up to professional level. Ran managed to make everything clear and concise, equipment knowledge was superb and his training is pitch perfect
