This street art tour was a treat for my daughter's (43rd) birthday. Josh was an excellent guide; very passionate and enthusiastic about street art and extremely knowledgeable. We came away inspired and full of respect for street artists raising awareness of social and political issues, creating incredible beauty.

Interesting tour of east London street art. Our guide Josh was great and really made me consider a different point of view with regard to the various layers of street art and how a community can unofficially license/curate the art within their area. Highly recommended!

As a street artist himself, our guide Josh was very knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions. We came away with a much better appreciation for the various different forms of street art and we were lucky to see some artists live in action at the end of our tour. Highly recommended!
