With music playing in the background Savio takes you on a magical adventure where he introduces you to very colourful locals and captures the beautiful vibe of the neighbourhood. You also experience the many cultures as you maneuver through the many small restaurants where the aromas fill your senses that you know this was one amazing experience. You must take this tour and all the Unexpected London tours to really feel the London they love and share with all.

Barbara - June 2019 - Tripadvisor *****

Above and beyond amazing! I was interested in seeing a part of London outside the usual tours with a lot of people and something more authentic and personal. Savio is extremely knowledgeable and makes every twist and turn of the Shoreditch walk so much fun. He brings the art work alive with music, passion and knowledge. I felt like I saw and tasted a part of London that was only possible because I booked this experience, not a tour, an amazing adventure that I will never forget.
