This was my second time enjoying the street art tour with Lance as our guide. I enjoyed both tours(this year and last year)! I'd encourage others to book this tour. You get the opportunity to view amazing artwork, and Lance has a great personality and is very knowledgeable of the history of the artwork in Wynwood. You won't be disappointed.

Great trip!! Really enjoyed St Augustine. I highly recommend the Old Town Trolley to get around and see the entire city.
