We really loved this tour, its a great opportunity to see a different part of the city and not just stick to the standard touristic sights. And lets not forget Emily, she is brilliant!

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.

Very interesting couple of hours learning about the different genres of street art and great to have a knowledgeable guide (Josh) explaining the history of the area and pointing out various details that most people would miss on their own. Definitely recommended

Our guide, Gary was friendly and knowledgeable. We were very satisfied with all the delicious food. We also learned a bit about the background of some of the street art in the neighborhood, which was inspiring. Highly recommend this tour!
