The tour was great! I had a lot of fun and 90 minutes was about the right length. I had friends visiting form the US and I live near Camden. We saw things I'd not noticed before in my own neighbourhood. The tours have really good reviews on Tripadvisor but I was worried about Eric's review below. Unfounded! The tours were great.
Absolutely loved this tour!! Really reminded me of the need to stop and look at our surroundings! Nelly did a great job. She kept everyone engaged and I was actually sad when it was over! Would highly recommend!!!
This tour was really enjoyable. I didn't expect that Camden has so many interesting street art pieces / murals to offer. The tour guide Nelly is very friendly, knowledgable and funny! It's a fantastic day out as well. After the tour I had some really yummy falafel in Camden Lock and it is always a pleasure to enter the exciting and eccentric world of Camden Town. I would definitely recommend this tour, a really great experience.
The tour guide spent too much time dwelling on a piece where she could have just given information that was exclusively about that particular artwork. Instead, she kept on talking about the lives of street artists, even the ones that did not have any pieces in Camden! It was more like a VERY(and unnecessarily) DETAILED introduction to street art rather than street art in Camden. I completely lost interest after 20 minutes and actually got bored of standing in front of every piece for more than 15 minutes. After a while I felt like the tour guide was just repeating herself. Not what I expected at all, could be better with another tour guide! Because of all this, we could have seen many more works if she kept it brief..
I really, really enjoyed this tour. It definitely made me see Camden and our city streets in a different light, we're so lucky in London to have what is essentially an outdoor art gallery on our doorstep! The art in Camden is amazing, and each piece has a story. Nelly was a brilliant guide, who answered every question I had. I learnt a lot and look forward to going again to see how the art has changed in the area. Thanks again!!
My wife booked this tour for us and I wasn't quite sure what to expect as Camden isn't known for its street art. Unfortunately I have to say that although there were some ok murals the tour itself and the overall concept was very poor compared to other London tours we've taken. None of the art was at all thought provoking and the feeling we got was that these guys had just organised a bunch of artists to paint some legal walls so that they could charge people to see them which felt rather odd. After a while it was just plain boring. Sorry but there's better experiences out there for the money.
