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!

Fantastic walking tour! Agathi took us around the city showing us the culture, explaining very well the history up to the modern politics. We laughed and enjoyed every minute. We were a reduce group of 6! If you miss this tour you’ll miss one of the most complete walking tours. Adorable lady that went far and beyond to show us a fascinating city! Totally recommend this tour!
