Savio provides you with an immersive experience from the music played throughout to mingling with the locals. He seemingly blends with the tapestry of the community and shows you a thing or two of the character of the area. More importantly he provides you with the historical perspective which makes you appreciate more the story behind the street art. With Savio, you feel that your longtime friend is showing you around. Thank you very much again for a great experience!

I've lived in London for most of my life and have always been reasonably curious about my surroundings, and yet Savio has manged both times (I've also been on the Shoreditch experience) to bring this city to life in a way that I can't quite articulate, but which leaves you exhilarated and desperate to explore every corner. There's a very particular magic in the way that he narrates these explorations; a friendly informality combined with passion, energy, and an exhaustive knowledge that incorporates all aspects of the area and community, both historic and contemporary. On both occasions, I've left feeling elated but never overwhelmed and with my eyes opened in a new way. Can't recommend highly enough!

It was great to learn so much about an area of less than 1 Square mile and it’s living community idea. We loved it and may do it again with our teenager kids next time in London. Savio has so much to tell, in particular about music (Reggae) and street art. Worth for everybody, even if you are not a fan of street art.

Savio is obviously not Brixton born and bred, but his passion for the area, its history, music, art and people is undisputed. He has cleverly curated an informative and enjoyable walk through Brixton environs, seamlessly splicing together the history of the area, its street art, some of its more famous denizens and its local food markets with a fabulous soundtrack to match. Our family enjoyed the experience immensely, particularly learning about the music and musicians who have emerged out of Brixton life. Walking through the various Brixton markets and being introduced to some very gracious Brixton locals was also a highlight. We enjoyed a jerk chicken and plantain lunch from one of these locals, The Bushman, once the tour was over and had cocktails in a pop-up village. Savio has obviously spent a lot of time and effort ensuring this experience is informative, unique and flows beautifully - it allowed us to wander through Brixton and get a real sense of the place without feeling as though we were on a whistle-stop tourist tour. We highly recommend the experience.
