“Wonderful start to our day!”
Frank was a great commentator and made everything so interesting. We spent a wonderful morning viewing so much that we would otherwise have walked past without noticing. Frank is very knowledgeable and certainly opend our eyes to many different types and styles of art. I would recommend this to anyone, young or old.....

“Great experience on UK Graffiti Tour”
Frank led our tour of some of the great street art in Shoreditch. He was a wonderful commentator, interspersing his descriptions of the local art with personal accounts and good stories. He was knowledgeable about the artists and the most current work that was appearing. Frank also turned us on to a village in Belgium that was a haven for street art - a village we subsequently spend 4 hours exploring and photographing. The tour was well paced and the group size was perfect. Thanks Frank! It was a highlight of the trip....

“Enter a new world.....Street Art Tours”
How do you entertain 5 kids whose ages range from 16 to 8....This was a birthday outing for our 15 year old and his four siblings....and boy did it enthral, entertain and excite! Steam 156 was unbelievable. His knowledge of his specialist subject - Graffiti and Street Art - was exemplary and totally absorbing. I cannot believe all 5 kids walked the streets of London for 3 hours and then begged for more! Thank you Frank - you were fantastic. You opened 5 pairs of eyes and inspired 5 children (and let's not forget the positive impact on the 2 adults!) - each now wanting to make their own mark in the World. If you do one thing when you are in London...then do it with Steam 156 - Street Art Tours - 10/10!!
