About the tour

GREAT STONE "The mole" is famous not only between the borders of the island, but also in the insular Caribbean region, because it is precisely the largest in that area.

The legends of its origin cover even the versions that attribute its formation due to the impact of a meteorite that fell millions of years ago in the aforementioned eastern territory, although the most true one is one that considers its birth due to the explosion of an underwater volcano .

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!
