I absolutely loved the London Street Art Detour last Sunday. Joe, our guide, was friendly informative and made a 3 hour tour feel like half an hour. We saw so much street art and Joe's knowledge was really impressive. I'd highly recommend this tour to anyone and everyone!

Being a Londoner I was truly amazed by what I learnt, its a great way to learn and see parts of London that are not obvious to the eye. Joe was very friendly and really knew his stuff. I am very keen to do another tour and was thinking of buying one as gift for a family member who I... More

If like us you're keen to expose your kids to art and culture but find galleries a chore then this is for you. A fascinating tour of East London's coolest street art with a brilliant, funny and engaging tour guide. Our boys (11 & 15) absolutely loved this. Can't recommend this enough.

Just spent a great 3 hours walking about Shoreditch and being surprised by great and diverse pieces in unexpected places thanks to a well planned tour by Joe. We had already walked around the area ourselves previously but doing the rounds with Joe made it so much more fun and informative. The teenagers in the group loved it as well.... More

My class and I were spellbound as we toured the streets of London observing the superb art. It gave us breathtaking experiences to last a lifetime. Although we were walking round in freezing temperatures, Joe kept us stimulated and engaged from the word go. Watching my peers facial expressions change round every corner was pure delight; wandering without knowing what... More

Fascinating, informed, multifaceted tour, from an entertaining enthusiast. Three hour sounds a lot, but passed very quickly as there was so much stuff to see. Well organised, well paced.

I've done enough traveling in my life to know that as a tourist, it is very easy to see the tourist version of a city. You go to Times Square, you walk the Hollywood Walk of Fame, you go to Ripley's Believe It or Not, you drink Starbucks & eat McDonald's, but you DON'T brush shoulders with the locals. Because...
