“Amazing!”

This street tour opened my eyes to the world of street art. There was something new around every corner and Doug was a very passionate and informative guide. Very glad I went, and would highly reccomend it .

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

I have been to London several times and wanted to experience something different. Doug showed us à round east london in an Entertaining yet instructive way. An experience worth living. We had a great time and saw great street art that we wouldn't have been able to see without the guide.

“A entertaining yet deep tour i highly recommend.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

I went on the tour with Ben Slow, and i highly recommend it. It allowed us to see some amazing pieces of street art, with a unique view of it's evolution and futur in this forever changing city. It was defenitly nice for a foreigner to be told this story by someone from this part of town, and to see that everywhere people are promoting all type of artistic heritage.

“Ben Slow, if you're reading this. You are a ledge.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014 via mobile

Hands down. Best walking tour I've ever done. I've lived in East London for only 3 months and I felt i needed to know more. Ben is an expert and is clearly passionate about his hood and street art. I loved the no Banksy disclaimer at the beginning and as Ben told us, we didn't need to see Banksy. The art was everywhere and it was incredible. You need to do this tour as there is so much you miss wandering the streets by yourself. I highly recommend this tour. It's not too long, good balance of history, art and moaning about gentrification. Keep up the good work Ben. 11 out of 10.
