I knew nothing about street art But trusted the very high recommendations from trip advisor. Had it not been for Dave's deep insider understanding of the street art culture, motivations and techniques, it's would have been just another dry, rote tour. We saw one tour like that pass by and it was clear that Dave is why you take his tour. He helped me understand the motivations for the artist's expression and methods. Street art is "by everyone, for everyone". Dave also explains how the community's acceptance allows a completely new evolution and sophistication. It is also ephemeral since it can be the one day and covers up the next. We saw a 25' price that wasn't there the week before which shows how this art form is constantly evolving and precious. I understand and appreciate all art in a completely new way and I know what to look for as I visit new cities. I took over 100 photos on his 3 hour tour!! That's more than I took at Buckingham, Westminster and the Tower combined. Dave opened a door to a new way for me to "see" the world around me. Thank you Dave.

This tour was one of the highlights of our London trip this September. It took about 3 hours and we got to see very impressive arts and interessting places. The tourguide Dave knew all about the artists, their work and background. We could not have found a better way to access the area and its unique street art than participating in this tour. We highly recommend it!!!

The 3 hours on the tour went by so quickly. The streets became art galleries. Dave was so informative and shared stories and insights - he seems to know a lot of the artists himself. We also bumped into 'Sell Out' the street artist 'live in action'.
This tour has opened my eyes to the streets of London.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in street art...

This was an amazing tour! When you are tired of being stuck inside museums and crowded by tons of tourists take a walk with Dave in Shoreditch. I can not speak more highly of Dave. He was so knowledgable about all of the art and artists. In depth explanations of everything we saw. Even ran into a street artist! He makes you appreciate all the hard work the artists do. Actually wish I could have walked around with Dave all afternoon! He even makes sure you don't get run over by oncoming traffic!!
