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!

Enrique muy amable, pudimos preguntarle por cuestiones de turismo. Accesible y dispuesto a ayudar . Como sugerencia que se ajuste más al tiempo y que puede introducir algunas cuestiones de historia. Sabemos que su especialidad es la arquitectura y por la ello su paseo es muy técnico. Gracias

Response from Enrique:

Muchas gracias Patricia! Ha sido todo un placer mostrarles la ciudad de León como orgulloso leonés que soy. También les agradezco enormemente sus sugerencias; he de decir que cuando algo te apasiona y el grupo es realmente bueno como ustedes, no te fijas en el tiempo que dedicas...de ahí que estuviera cuatro horas de tour. Todo un placer y aquí tienen su casa. Un abrazo!
