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!

Buen resumen de la historia de la ciudad, y contado de forma muy amena. No se hace pesado y recorres las partes más importantes de la ciudad

El tour fue muy ameno y entretenido aunque la guía hizo muchos comentarios sesgados y politizados, e incluso racistas. Debería contar los hechos de un modo más objetivo sin intentar convencernos de que su opción es la correcta.
