If you are going on holiday this festive season, then best believe you need to capture the best photos for your social media game. 

But without a drone or help from a stranger that can sometimes be more challenging than you anticipated. 

If you are travelling to places like Bali and the Philippines, then you have nothing to fear. The tour guides have proven time and time again that they are more than capable.
