We went on this tour as my friend and I were looking to explore east London a bit more and especially brick lane. It was a great, insightful street art and culture tour that taught is LOADS and doug was a great your guide. Would HIGHLY RECCOMEND!! Plus you can pay what you wish and made it so accessible.

Great experience with a lot of learning not only about street art but also about architecture, history and economy in loco, and everything in a very relax and fun atmosphere.

Really fun to discover London from a different angle, learning about the artists, seeing monuments and art scene never noticed before even after many visits in the area; and discovering new pubs. Great guide and good atmosphere in the group, I strongly recommend it.

However when it came to the end we were asked for contributions, this was fine but for some people out of work or unable to donate one should not feel guilt tripped into doing so and feel... More
