Karl Marx lived and worked in London. His ideas inspired protests, strikes, rebellions, revolutions, terrorism, warfare, struggles for freedom, democracy and liberty, and regimes of tyrannical repression. Marx’s story combines comedy, tragedy, love, hate, hope and despair. This sets the backdrop to an intellectual expedition to unravel the mysteries of history, politics, economics and philosophy. We walk you through the life and ideas of Karl Marx. Sundays 11am Piccadilly Circus in front of Criterion Theatre.

An excellent guided tour where you get to see Soho, learn about the era and Marx's theory and life, laugh, and think. Friendly and engaging atmosphere, with the bonus of a good pub stop.

Heiko was engaging, informative, funny, and serious. I wanted to read about Marx and his theories after listening to his presentation. He encouraged questions, and I suspect he modified his talk to meet the group's needs. The highest compliment came from my wife who said,...More

The time passed very quickly. Heiko is an expert who put the information across in a very accessible way. We didn't get as far as the British Museum, but I'm not convinced we were ever meant to get there - and I don't really mind.

A thoroughly enjoyable walk around Soho, learning amazing stories that are never recorded by bourgeois historians. The guide was very amusing and had excellent knowledge of all things Marx. A hidden gem of a tour :)

Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier

a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s

We start in Piccadilly walk around Soho and end up, usually, in the British museum. Each guide takes a slightly different route.
