Our guide Josh was passionate, incredibly knowledgeable, engaging, highly opinionated and articulate, and helped challenge my teen and tween to think differently about art. I've already recommended the tour to no...More

Our guide had great knowledge of detail on Street art and was full of interesting facts. She shaped the tour to a certain extent to our wishes as well.

It was pouring rain and cold and I still had an amazing time. Not only do you learn about the history of street art but also the history of east London. Its off the beaten path. I would highly recommend!

Went for a walking tour and street art course. We had a great informative guide and got to see and learn about a lot of great street art. Especially our son liked the following course.
