If you are interested in art and/or London history this tour is perfect. The great thing is that you can do the tour again and again and see something different each time as the street art 'canvas' changes daily.

Really great way to spend an afternoon - if you live in London and have friends come to visit it's a laid back, no hassle tour which gives a real flavour of the East End. Interesting and engaging, well informed guide who's passionate and knowledgable but tells all sides of the story.

Incredible tour and one of the best ways to learn about the history and current status of the most dynamic neighborhood in London - East End.

Really fantastic enjoyable couple hrs...would recommend to anyone, even those not interested in art may enjoy the sociology aspect, ie, battle of financial district encroaching on the culturally diverse, historical and architecturally beautiful east end of London. Both elements perfectly explained with humour and a real empathy for the battle against new money and the creativity of the street artist ( some of which was truly amazing ) by the passionate Doug. Only criticsism was it would have been nice to all have lunch together and then do it all again...

A great way to see the east end from a different perspective. Josh, our guide, was knowledgeable, entertaining and added insight to the works (and the area) that only a local can provide. We have already recommended this tour to some of our friends, including those that live in London. The only downside was that the group was very large -- 24 people -- some of whom were not all that interested in what Josh had to say.
