After already taking part in two detours, I decided to take my students (about 15 years old) on the "Weird and Wonderful Westminster Detour". We had two groups of 26 and 30 respectively (one morning and one afternoon tour). Joe was able to win over very tired students from Germany who had literary just arrived by coach in London. The...

My family and I had the great, good fortune to be shown London by tour guide extraordinare, Joe Morris. Meeting Joe for the first time, you are struck by his friendly, easygoing personality. Joe is also a fountain of information, knows London like the back of his hand, and is a natural storyteller. Best of all though, he is FUNNY.... More

I would highly recommend doing the London Detours, Street Art walk. Joe is a fantastic guide and brought the east end of London alive. I did not know anything about street art apart from, "tagging" which I thought was just for gangs marking their territory. I have become enlightened and will now look at everything that may look like vandalism... More

Joseph has the great ability to keep the tour fun and interesting, all along bringing some insight of the local history to the street art vibe. As a massive graffiti fan, I was really grateful to find out about it! I truly recommend it! It was a perfect Sunday activity, something different to do, something awesome!!

My son and I took the street art tour yesterday. Joe was a great guide. His enthusiasm, casual, friendly, amusing demeanour put us all at ease and made this trip very memorable. He pointed out some unusual, quirky and completely hidden gems as well as the street art we all see walking around. We darted here and there around the... More

We went on the street art tour on Sunday 8th March. It was an amazing and eye opening tour. The guide, Joe, was so passionate and knowledgeable about everything that his enthusiasm fed through to us all. He was happy to answer any questions we had, however silly, and 3 hours flew by. Our kids aged 14, 12 & 10... More

A really good tour around a part of East London I wouldn't have thought of looking for art. Joe was a really good guide and very knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Highly recommend this to anyone whether you know about street art or not.
