Hard to overstate how great of an experience this is. Amazing street art by a guide who has been a part of the scene for several decades. The art itself is stunning. Very highly recommended.

A raw but organized tour by a local artist giving it an authentic feel. Worth asking the guide questions to gleen even more insights into the street art scene. Great value and a great time.
