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!

Fue muy amable el guía, en líneas grales me gustó, no me gustó meterme por los callejones, no me parece respetuoso "chusmear" como vive la gente, yo quería historia y recorrido de los grafittis.

El tour fantástico con Maryori, el paseo y las explicaciones de nuestra guia formidables. Les recomiendo a todos que lo hagan y descubran la paz que ahora se respira en sus calles.

Nuestro guía fue Andrés, un chico super majo y con mucho sentido del humor. Nos explicó muy bien la historia de Comuna 13 y resolvió todas nuestras dudas.

100% recomendable. Espero en un futuro no muy lejano poder hacer otro tour con el. Estubo genial.
