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!

The afternoon tour covered more "modern" areas of the city and we were just a small group led by Pedro who is a local that i can only describe as being a human encyclopedia with a level of English fit for the narration of documentaries. All of this topped with such humbleness. One of the best guides i have ever met. Best regards

These guys are so good I even joined two of their tours in the same day. The afternoon tour is a more relaxed tour focused on more modern times and if you really want to get into the past of the city don’t miss the Alfama and Mouraria done by them. I’m really hoping to join soon some of their more specialized tours that only happen once a year like the Jewish Tour or the Dictatorship and Revolution Tour.
