The street art tour and workshop were both top notch! Emily was an excellent guide. She was well versed in local history and, as an artist herself, knew details about the various work/artists we most likely wouldn’t have gotten with any other tour. The workshop was a great way to cap off the day. Who can resist the chance to learn to spray paint after seeing all that great art?!

Emily was our rep for this tour and workshop, we took my little sister for her 12th birthday. We had a great time learning about the different existing works of art and spotting hidden pieces throughout. When we got back to the workshop, Emily was brilliant. She talked us through techniques and was very patient with my sister. We created some great pieces, a day well spent!

Awesome tour and workshop!

We were booked onto the "full tour and workshop" which is limited to a max of 6 people. Luckily for us, the other 4 didn't turn up, so we had a private tour. Our guide was not only knowledgeable about the art and a great guy to be around, but he also clearly had a a lot of love for the scene that produced many of the exhibits we we were shown. We had a brilliant time and I cannot rate this highly enough!
