Met Pete at Aldgate station (the shortest high street in Britain) and had a wonderfully insightful and interesting tour that combined so many parts of Brick Lane. We saw a lot of street art and learned about the artists behind them, we also got to know a bit more about Brick Lane's past and present history. Finally Pete also spoke of his experience with homelessness and the current situation in Brick Lane. Overall a wonderful experience, Pete was really nice and a great tour guide.

The tour of Brick Lane with Pete exceeded our expectations. It ended up being just us, which made it a very special personal experience, Pete put the tour together and told the stories in such an interesting way and gave us a good insight into the area's past and important social issues. But more than that, he spoke about homelessness with honesty and in a thought provoking way that opened up conversation. We were left with a lot to think about and feeling lucky to have had this time with Pete.

I love the whole experience. I felt like I had gained more knowledge about the history of Brick Lane. It's not easy to share the long history of this colourful area but Pete managed to put it together well. The stories behind the street art were memorable. And of course, the housing issues gave me food for thought. Pete was very candid about the questions I asked him. Overall I suggest everyone who has the time to show up for the tour.

We had a lovley tour of Brick Lane with Pete. He shared lots of intimate details of the street art and the history of immigration into the area and stories of women's rights. Great take on walking tours, sharing stories of his own experiences and the social issues that effect the lives of people living in the area today.
