Having hosted over 600 tours and hikes in and around my hometown of Norfolk, I've spent seven years exploring and sharing.

Each artist has a story and each piece a spirit.

The artists with works featured on our tour were provided with the narrative related to their work. Some responded with valuable feedback and others a kind nod. So what we will convey about the art is synced with the creator's visions and is genuine.

Great time touring the community art with Mike! Really loved how he reached out to creators of the art to get approval on his interpretation of the piece. Mike really cares, and it shows through his passion and enthusiasm. Definitely would recommend!

This was a great and unique way of immersing myself into the local culture. My husband, daughter and I enjoyed it. Michael was detailed and full of info on each of the pieces.

Michael is among the best walking tour hosts we have encountered. Every stop we made had a purpose and we enjoyed them all. We took lots of pictures without feeling rushed in any way which was great. You won't regret booking a tour with Michael.

Neat little tour of all of the new art popping up among the NEON district. I appreciated michael’s knowledge of the art and artists and the walk around downtown was great!

We had a great tour of the NEON District in Norfolk. Michael was a great host. The weather was cold and it had been rainy but the tour was well worth it. He even offered to change our reservations with better weather conditions. We learned a lot about Norfolk and their efforts in developing the NEON District. The art and back stories was very interesting.
