Sorcha was a wealth of knowledge and fun. We walked around quite a bit and she told us a lot about the area where we were. She even treated us to hot chocolate and tea - which were unnecessary of her to do but very nice. I would recommend it as a way of getting to know the area of London.

We could not have asked for a better experience with Jonoko. His witty demeanor and extremely knowledgeable personality made our tour a special afternoon. We started with a sleepy 9 year old, but by the end of the tour - Jonoko had her fully engaged and commenting on all her street art “sightings.” He was perfect with our shy little girl. I am a huge fan of street art and I can’t speak highly enough about Jonoko and this splendid tour. Do yourself and your family a favor - take this tour. It’s one of the hidden gem experience of London.

Sorcha was a great guide and I saw a lot of incredible street art and learned a lot about Irish history! Very open to questions, very communicative via text, and very knowledgeable about the area and its history. I enjoyed myself very much.

Jonoko loves art and admires artists, especially the "troublemakers." Our walking trip around the East End was full of fun stories, jokes and insights into the minds of some of the city's most creative and anarchistic minds. This tour was one of my favorite parts of my trip to London.

What a fabulous tour. Sorcha was so knowledgeable and funny and a great communicator. Our family loved the whole experience and the stop off at the chocolate cafe was truly amazing. We would definitely recommend this tour and Sorcha. We will be back again soon.

We were disappointed with our experience and ended the tour early. Whilst Anthony was a good host, polite and on time, there was very little content to the activity. He was limited in his knowledge of the areas past and was often repetitive. Activity and social scene on Bricklane doesn't start up until later in the morning and perhaps hampered Anthony's effort, however, he should have had alternative content ready to occupy time and keep our interest. He also needed google maps to direct him around, certainly not the mark of a person who has grown up in the locality. The tour is perhaps best suited to tourists from abroad and is probably better off starting later in the day.
