    Lori Ann gives an excellent tour!!! She is the original street art tour guide, been doing it for nearly a decade. She knows the history and even knows some of the artists personally. Great tour!

    Anthony_H, Feb 2024
    Our tour guide was knowledgeable and made it fun. There are many murals to see and we learned a bit about the transformation of the neighborhood and the local arts scene.

    Phoenix street art and history.
    Marilou_S, Feb 2024
    Beautiful wall artwork and historical information. Very good tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and carefully included even slower walkers.
    Response from Host, Mar 2024
    So glad you came--and thank you for your patience with the slower walkers. Even when we keep the groups small--we all seem to move at a little different pace. So glad you came!
    Interesting art
    Aleena_T, Feb 2024
    The history behind the art was good to see. The overrated art and the prices were interesting. The tour guid was nice, enjoyed the tour
    Response from Host, Feb 2024
    Thanks for your review! Glad you enjoyed the history and the art. For anyone reading this review --the overrated art and high prices have to do with the art in a new gallery in the area that we got to go into. They change their exhibit once a month and we go in anytime we can. But like all art--beauty is in the eye of the beholder :) I wouldn't (couldn't either) pay millions of dollars for a Picasso either but some people just gotta have it!
    Don’t miss this tour!
    Jesseca_B, Nov 2023
    We had so much fun. The art was amazing and the stories were equally as great. We loved the introduction to this neighborhood and its important history as an Artist District. Thanks to our guide. She was awesome!
    Response from Host, Nov 2023
    Fun, loving the art the stories and the neighborhood--that's what I love to hear! So glad we were able to have a great time together! Your review is much appreciated!!!!
    Superb Street Art Walking Tour
    Barb_D, Sep 2023
    Personal and educational walking tour of graffiti, murals, and commissioned street art through downtown Phoenix. Interesting and fun, our guide, Lori Ann, suggests places to eat, visit later for jazz, and personally knows the artists.
    Response from Host, Oct 2023
    Thank you so much for your reviews. I like that word superb! It was superb to have both of you as well. I enjoyed your interest and fun attitude as well. Best!

    Kristin_S, May 2023
    The tour was a great walking tour, there is so much art to see, I am only giving four stars as I wish we could have seen more!
    Response from Host, Jun 2023
    Oh wow! I wish I would have known you wanted to see more and that you had the time. More than once I have taken a few extra minutes to do a bit of a bonus at the end. For most people though, even though the murals are amazing, they are maxed out at 90 minutes to 2 hours. Hope you'll come back. If you are in town, please reach out to me and I would be happy to show you more!

    Art as social commentary

    I loved the connections between local history and the development of street art in Phoenix. The guide is very knowledgeable about both topics
    Response from Host, May 2023
    So true--street art definitely tells a story. Thanks for your thoughtful understanding of its role and also for your kind review!
    Great experience. Our guide Laurie Ann was excellent ( not sure I spelled her naMe correctly).

    Our guide was great. The area was interesting, and the murals were amazing. We went on a Saturday morning and the area was active.
    Response from Host, May 2023
    You're kind! Thanks for including how active Saturdays are. People often like to go where there is a lot going on.

    Interesting tour, fun area
    Faith_R, Mar 2023
    We were given tickets to this tour for Christmas and it was a fantastic experience. The walk was easy and the tour guide was very knowledgeable about the art and the area. We had to leave immediately after the tour but the area seemed to have a lot of good restaurants to go to.
    Response from Host, Apr 2023
    Hey there! Thanks for taking the time to share a thoughtful review. I am so glad you had a great time! Restaurants--yes--Thai, French and of course Tacos!!! Come back and try them next time!
    Fantastic Tour
    Abigail_B, Mar 2023
    This walking tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Phoenix. Our guide, Lori Ann, provided us with the history and evolution of this art form and had so many interesting stories to share about the artists and art that we were viewing. Even our 15 year old daughter was thoroughly engrossed (that says a lot!). I highly recommend this tour when you visit Phoenix!
    Response from Host, Apr 2023
    So glad you loved it! A lot of the artists where in that transition stage where they were going from taggers to artists around the age of 15-16--maybe that's what got her. Thanks for the review! Hope to see you again!
    Highly Recommend
    Beth_W, Feb 2023
    Great tour! Lori Ann , our guide, was terrific—informative, friendly, and receptive to questions from our group that ranged in age from teenagers to seniors. Great passion to promote and support area artists.
    Response from Host, Apr 2023
    I am so glad you enjoyed the tour--the artists and what we do. I appreciate you mentioning the wide range of people that enjoy the tour. Your thoughtfulness is really appreciated.
    Entertaining And Fun Tour!
    Nadine_R, Feb 2023
    Unfortunately it was raining and cold during our tour, but we made the best of it! Lori Ann was an excellent tour guide and very knowledgeable. It was interesting to see and hear how tagging differs from painting, and what has taken place to allow the gangs and the artists to work together. I would definitely recommend this tour when it’s not raining. Lol
    Response from Host, Apr 2023
    Wish I could change the weather for you--but glad you were able to enjoy the tour anyway! Thanks for your recommendation!
    Great tiur
