    This was a fun and unique experience for me and my 12 year old daughter. It was nice to see a different part of the city and get background on the street art culture. The guide was very knowledgeable and humorous. He obviously has a passion for the topic which was nice to see! There was a lot of walking on this tour so make sure you have comfortable shoes and bottled water.

    Josh was an excellent guide and mentor on the activity. Really engaging, passionate and informative. The workshop was great fun and really gives insight into this art form and how technical and skilled the leading artists truly are. An awesome glimpse into a culturally significant world and the respect and hierarchy that exists within the space, from a beginner tagging and finding their style up to the more experienced (sometimes) funded artists who can create large scale pieces that are insanely complex and skilled! Not the end of our spray can fun...this was the beginning! Luke, Lulu, Connor and Leanne tags and stencils will be coming soon... :)

    This is a don't-miss for teens or anyone wanting a new form of art to enjoy! Our guide Josh was clearly knowledgeable and passionate about what he was showing us. It was great to get off the beaten track and see things hidden in plain sight. My husband and I were as impacted as our teenage daughters to learn about the evolution of street art, along with gaining an appreciation for styles and artists we would never have known about if not for this tour. Our daughters attended the 2-hour workshop after the walking tour, and it was a highlight of their time in London. Highly recommend!
