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!

WOW! Excellent tour with Francesco. I have taken several tours throughout Europe, paid and free, and this tour was one of the best. Francesco walked us around the Old Wall of Florence and explained the history and significance all while making the tour fun. This is my 4th trip to Italy and my first time in this area and Oltrarno district. So much to see and learn. We enjoyed a cup of wine while we walked and learned more history near the Roman gate of the city. Francesco then took us to an amazing local restaurant for lunch. The food was incredible. I now understand why so much good is said about the Oltrarno district. The tour involved about 4-5 miles of walking and some very steep hills. Be prepared! But the views at the top and photo ops are worth it. My family totally loved this tour and we couldn’t stop talking about our time with Francesco all day. Thank you for a wonderful time! If you are debating about this tour, don’t waste any more book Francesco now.

OMG the best guided walk ever Francesco lived locally and gave us so much local knowledge it was amazing seeing such a different side of Florence over the river. The refreshment breaks and lunch in a local restaurant were also fabulous and so cheap. We had another couple on our walk Miriam and her husband who were such good fun.

Thank you so much the best day of our holiday so far.

Can’t wait to get back to the other side of the river.

Having been to Florence before, this was a very interesting and informative walking tour which enabled us to see an area of Florence that we definitely would not have been able to find on our own. Francesco is a very personable and knowledgeable tour guide. He was very accommodating in that he allowed us to experience the walk at our own pace and did not rush us at any point. We especially enjoyed our mid-walk stop for wine and cappuccino at a lovely. local outdoor cafe. The tour ended with a walk through the oltrarno area which we enjoyed as it felt like a glimpse at an "authentic"Florence neighborhood. Francesco brought us to a local outdoor market and suggested a restaurant overlooking the market where we had an excellent local Italian lunch. Overall, it was a great experience and I would definitely recommend it for those who want to see an area of Florence beyond the "usual" .

This tour with Francesco was such a lovely part of my few days in Firenze. This path certainly revealed parts of Florence that I would not have discovered on my own. During the walk, Francesco shared his knowledge of Florence's history, the buildings we encountered, as well as some of his own stories from growing up in this city. He is very friendly, interesting, and easygoing. I'd recommend enjoying lunch with him if you have time!

Response from Francesco:

Thanks very much for your "back from the future" holidays in Firenze and to have been walking with me.

Fantastic! Francesco was knowledgeable, warm and inviting. The tour was unique and I got to experience Florence like I would have never done as your average tourist. This tour itself was so nice and it was interesting to see such beautiful history. This was an absolute highlight of our entire Italian trip. I would highly reccomend Francesco's tour to everyone. You will leave having a new friend in Florence. Happy Travels!
