What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!

Very informative and thoroughly enjoyable tour. Nur has certainly done her homework. I felt safe and have learned a lot about Istanbul, especially its history, but also practical tips.

Teșekur ederim, Nur! Keep up the good work.

Gran tour por Crisópolis (se me quedó el nombre griego), recomendable 100%, además durante el tour puedes descubrir otros lugares para comprar especias mucho más barato que el gran bazaar. Un abrazo!

Conocer un poquito más Uskudar de cerca y la vida de los sultanes. Un paseo muy agradable por las orillas de Bósforo y disfrutar de una puesta de sol desde el lado asiático no tiene precio. Gracias Nur por tu amabilidad, un abrazo
