Having read reviews about this tour, and as an organiser on a committee offering days out to its membership, I thought I would book this up. So, a group of 30 of us left deepest darkest Kent to head up to London by train. From the moment Frank started speaking we knew we were in for something special. Frank has... More

I knew nothing about Street Art before the tour, but now know the difference between Street Art and Graffiti! Frank was an excellent guide, really interesting, knowledgable and fun. I now see Street Art in a totally different light - it's fantastic and very talented. A great tour and would highly recommend it. Thank you Frank.

I recently was researching a day trip with this company. I sent an inquiry about a weekday private tour. A very unprofessional email with just one sentence was sent back. " I don't do weekday tours." This was from Frank. Maybe your company does a nice job with the tours, but your customer service is awful.

I am quite shocked at this review since I sent the person two nice and polite e-mails telling her that I was unable to do tours during the week and recommended some other tour companies. For some reason the two e-mails I sent her ended up in her junk box what she never checked. The woman thought I was just... More

I enjoyed the fact that we covered all forms of graffiti and street art, from stickers to paste ups and freestyle to more sculptural forms. Our guide, steam 156 was very knowledgable and a great personality. He customized the tour by asking if there is anything we wanted to see and also tested our knowledge at the end for fun.... More

This was a really interesting tour and Frank was extremely knowledgeable. We learned about different styles and artists and walked all over East London. Lived up to all expectations.

Like everyone else has said, Frank is really knowledgeable. I really love street art & graffiti and was worried I'd book a tour with someone who was just in it for the tourist dollars. You won't be let down by Frank. A graffiti/street artist himself, he's experienced, witty, really easy going and patient. It's a lot of walking packed into... More

The tour was great and extremely interesting but mostly because of Frank. He simply shared his passion with us and showed us the best of it. There was art which was so amazing but there were stories and people behind it. It was absolutely worth it, we even didn't notice when 2 hours went by although it was raining. We... More

Our tour guide, Frank (aka Steam156), was awesome. He has a very easy going personality and great knowledge of the world of graffiti. I took the tour with my 19 year old daughter and my 72 year old mom...all 3 generations found the graffiti culture to be fascinating. We all have a new appreciation for street art! Look forward to...

We (me, wife, teenage son and daughter) booked this tour because our son is a photographer, and likes taking more 'offbeat' pictures when we travel (rather than the usual tourist shots... or, of his family). Met Frank for a two hour walking tour; it was just us and him. He knew the neighborhood like the back of his hand; he... More
