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!

Great tour! Dinnah was awesome. You don’t realise that 4,5 hours went by so quickly. Plenty of yummy snack breaks.

A great way to get an overview of the high points. It wasn’t my first trip to Shanghai but the walk really helped me enjoy the flavour of the city.
