My boyfriend and I did the City Detour last Monday and 2 years ago I've already toured Southwark with Joe. Words can hardly do justice to the quality of these tours, you really have to experience it yourselves. Joe is an absolutely fabulous and knowledgeable guide who will show you London in an entertaining, fun and very fascinating way. You... More

We had a great time on our tour and got to see parts of London that we would never have found on our own. Tour guide was excellent and I couldn't recommend this tour enough.

What a fantastic 3 hours! Joe has a wealth of information on the street artists who adorn many a wall and surface with their fantastic and creative talents. I will never look at a NO ENTRY sign in the same way! Loved the story behind the 'Trainer Tree' and all the other anectodes. Thanks Joe, we loved it

We have spent a fascinating 3 hours with Joe, looking, learning and discussing the works of various street artists in the area of Brick Lane. Joe’s passion for this unique kind of art is contaminating! Highly recommended!!

Hats off to Joe. The guy is not only hilarious but engaging, friendly and knowledgable. I find street art fascinating anyway, but Joe was able to educate on a whole new level of cultural commentary that I had never appreciated. Great tour, I would happily do the same one again. 5* for everything

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!!
