Our guide made the Walk perfect. Full of knowledge ( explaining Hegel and Marx, filosophy and economy in an easy and humorous way - that’s not easy but he made it. Highly recommended, marxist or not.

If you are in London, whether you adhere to Marx’s ideas or not, it is worth participating in Marxwalks. Stories well told, ideas clearly explained, places worth knowing- all in all a wonderful experience!

I was confident this would be an entertaining way to spend a Sunday afternoon but it was so much better than I expected. Deeply entertaining, informative and thought provoking. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Our guide Dr Khoo was amazing. His knowledge was boundless and he presented it in an interesting way peppered with humor. Definitely a fine way to spend a Sunday morning/early afternoon. At 10 pounds it's also great value!

A great way to spend a Sunday morning in Soho. If you like your humour dry, Heiko is your man. Pace and number (1) and length (15 mins) of rest stops exactly right. Inspired me to learn the Internationale.

We start in Piccadilly walk around Soho and end up, usually, in the British museum. Each guide takes a slightly different route.
