Great way to discover a new neighborhood at my own pace. Well made with interesting nuggets that bring the neighborhood to life

I love these tours! I was living in London for a couple months and ended up finding these self pace audio tours out of luck. I got the London city pack. Each one’s gave a historical and modern understanding of the area I was exploring. The hosts are fun, engaging and interesting to listen to. My favorites were the brixton and south bank tour. One of the best purchases!!

Very interesting self-guided audio tour which shows history, music related spots and art of Brixton area. It has been an amazing way to walk around the neighborhood safely and learn a lot of cultural things. I really suggest trying this tour. To be fair, I had problems to download the audio guide by using the code I received from TripAdvisor booking, si I strongly suggest using their Vici Guides app directly to book the tour.

Very interesting tour and background information through a neighbourhood I wouldn‘t have experiennced otherwise. Though, honestly I stopped after the David Bowie mural, which was my main focus.
