Attraction details
Owner description: Karl Marx lived and worked in London. His ideas inspired protests, strikes, rebellions, revolutions, terrorism, warfare, struggles for freedom, democracy and liberty, and regimes of tyrannical repression. Marx’s story combines comedy, tragedy, love, hate, hope and despair. This sets the backdrop to an intellectual expedition to unravel the mysteries of history, politics, economics and philosophy. We walk you through the life and ideas of Karl Marx. Sundays 11am Piccadilly Circus in front of Criterion Theatre.

We have done many guided walks in London. Some are great because of the guide, some good in spite of a poor guide and some have been poor because of a poor guide or poor delivery of what should have been an interesting subject.
This walk was one of the very best - a subject matter that we knew we had relatively little knowledge of and a guide who was extremely knowledgeable, full of enthusiasm for his subject and able to pass on the information in an entertaining and insightful way. Heiko was very easy to listen to and kept the whole groups attention throughout - quite a feat. He'd make a fantastic lecturer!
You don't have to be into Marxism to enjoy this but you'll certainly come away understanding the concepts in a new light. Highly recommended.

A great tour focussing on this influential leader and his legacy. I took a group of College students and was hoping it would be a good experience for them. I completely underestimated how informative and entertaining the tour would be. Great job! I highly recommend it for anyone interested in politics, history, economics, or just a good tour of Soho to the British Museum.

I really enjoyed myself. The walk itself wasn't too long, only about 2 miles weaving throughout the streets of SoHo. The guide was very knowledgable and easy to follow because of his passion for the subject matter. He did a great job keeping me and the rest of my group entertained. We also took a 25 minute break at a quaint local pub where we sat down, rested our legs, and grabbed a drink and a bite to eat -- where comfortable shoes!

We went as part of a specially organised school group's walking tour which was nicely tailored to the group - a very well spent couple of hours!
