"Just done Street Art Tour of London and loved it. Second run I've done with Vanessa and they've both been great. Nobody gets left behind and Vanessa is unfailingly cheerful too! Will definitely do some more."
5* FACEBOOK REVIEW
"Had a fantastic time running around East London with Vanessa on the Street Art running tour. This tour is jam-packed with content. Vanessa has obviously researched the subject matter thoroughly and clearly enjoys delivering her tours (this is my second one so far). Highly recommend Secret London Runs for anyone."
"Absolutely amazing fun ... Vanessa was so enthusiastically knowledgeable. I had never realised how much stunning street art was in London over what felt a really short distance. Lots of stops and photo opportunities. I had so much fun I will definitely be booking to join another run."
5* TRIPADVISOR REVIEW
"Thoroughly enjoyed the street art running tour with Vanessa today. We picked the super chilled pace and it was perfect. Nobody gets left behind and everyone gets to enjoy a relaxing jog around London's East end. Rich in content and context, with loads to see and learn and chat about, would recommend this tour to anyone wanting something a little different to the average galleries and museums."
