This is easily the most comprehensive street art tour I've been on, and considering it's about 4 hours long, it was a very decent price. Whether you've a faint interest in street art and graffiti and its culture or are a knowledgable fan, you'll learn something new from street art scholar Dave, whose enthusiasm for London's concrete canvas makes this a lively, insightful tour.

You'll learn about the myriad techniques street artists use, the history of certain pieces and might even discover fresh work that's still wet! You’ll see works by some of the most famous local and international names in street art, including D*Face, Eine, Mr Cenz, Roa, Ronzo and, of course, Banksy.

You get to rest your legs for a bit in a local coffee shop before heading off again, winding through Shoreditch's back roads and off the beaten track to discover gems you might not otherwise have known existed – especially as many get replaced/painted over so quickly and often.

The tour doesn’t end on the streets – after, Dave sends an equally thorough email with hundreds (nearly) of links to reviews, videos and photos on the various artists and artworks we’d seen through the day, and many more. It’s a fascinating experience and worth every penny. Definitely not one to miss if you want a real insight one of the most impressive street art collections anywhere in the world.

Joining Dave on his Shoreditch Street art tours is probably the best way to see street art in London. Dave is extremely passionate about street art and explains in detail about each of the art drawn in various parts of shoreditch. Come sun or rain, he runs his tour and it lasted for about 4 hours. I had no clue about the difference between street art and Grafitti and it is during his walking tour, it all became clear to me. Also, he takes you into different streets and alleys of shoreditch so there is actually a lot more to see and understand rather than check it all by oneself.

This is an excellent tour and a must for anyone with even a passing interest in street art. David provides terrific insights into the world of street art, the different styles and motivations. He has a comprehensive knowledge and was able to answer our barrage of questions! I was also impressed by his organisation of the tour - checking in before the day and also providing a really informative email afterwards with lots of links to sites for extra reading and research.
