We had an amazing tour with Becky around the East end. She gave us a history of the area to provide context to the street art that we were viewing. She was extremely knowledgeable and informative. We would highly recommend the tour. We plan on coming back to take another when we are in town. We know there will be new artists popping up.🤗 Heidi and Pippa

Easy pick-up sight near the underground. Our guide, Becky, did a fantastic job of pointing out street art and her knowledge of the area's history made this a highlight of our time in London. We took many fascinating pictures and have great memories of the East End. Becky couldn't have been more personable, enthusiastic, and informative. We highly recommend this offbeat tour!

Becky was an excellent guide. She knew the origins, development, meaning, and context of the street art and we got a good feel for the east end. She knew the history of the area and added a lot of details such as architecture and Jack the Ripper.

Great tour of the East End today with Becky. Learned so much about the area, the culture and of course the street art. Becky is an excellent guide, knowledgeable and friendly. The time passed so quickly, with a surprise on every corner. I have been on many walking tours in cities around the world and this is definitely one I recommend. Do something different next time you are in London and spend an afternoon with Becky learning about the East End and it’s eclectic history. On the practical side, wear good shoes, and at this time of year, wear a worm coat and take an umbrella. Overall - Very pleased will return to do another tour with Becky.

becky was a great tour guide she was really entertaining and motivated our kids 13 and 9 were really in to it they loved the tour becky was really kind, and showed us some nice restaurants on the way great tour the meeting point was right by the underground lovely tour we love becky:> from margaux (the nine year old) Now from the mom: This is an excellent tour. We've been to London many times, and can highly recommend this "off the beaten path" tour; it was great to experience something new. Becky was a great guide -- informative about the street art and the area, and a great storyteller too. It was a highlight of our trip, and we will look for other tours from Becky in the future!

Jake was an amazing tour guide! We were lucky to only have a few people on this tour, so we were able to ask a lot of questions. He gave us so much more than an art tour! He’s a foodie, and a Londoner himself. We highly recommend this tour!
