Took the tour this afternoon and totally enjoyed it! Saw great pieces of street art that would not noticed without the guide.

The weather was sunny guide was very knowledgable and passionate.

Totally worth it!!!

“If you want a tour that gives you the essence of what London is really about then this is the one to do”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

Did this walk last night and even though I live in London found it eye opening and thought-provoking. Saw amazing pieces of street art and learnt about history of area and characters past and present. Guide had real passion and knowledge of the area and artists so felt genuine rather than another tourist trap. Also made me aware of how much this historical and vibrant area hangs in the balance.

Pay what you feel tour as worth at end. Definitely recommend.
