What people are saying about Brick Lane

Excellent tour!

I had Alice as a guide. Time passed us very quickly since it was very enjoyable and shared a lot of historical data about London. It was lovely to all the places where it took me. I have been to London several times and by far this tour has been one of the best if you want to know the non-tourist of London.

The photography was about half an hour, Ewa photoed me and she is great. She recommended several spots and photoed very professionally. Very enjoyable photoing and wonderful pictures.

It is always surprising what kind of things are overlooked. Which has an incredible story or meaning. Street art is an art of the future.
