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!

Informative tour, Agathi was great and really friendly and gave us great tips too. Would definitely recommend this to other travellers coming to Athens, we saw some great things we wouldn’t have found ourselves in the few days we were there :)

Fantastic tour! Great variety of information tailored to what we wanted to see and hear. All questions were asked and some fantastic recommendations given for Athens as well as Kefalonia where we were headed next. Definitely recommend!
