Overview

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.

Our guide Dr Khoo was amazing. His knowledge was boundless and he presented it in an interesting way peppered with humor. Definitely a fine way to spend a Sunday morning/early afternoon. At 10 pounds it's also great value!

A great way to spend a Sunday morning in Soho. If you like your humour dry, Heiko is your man. Pace and number (1) and length (15 mins) of rest stops exactly right. Inspired me to learn the Internationale.

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.

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