Zaytuna Tours Travel Agency is a company dedicated to providing powerful insights into the most emblematic Islamic sites in Europe and Morocco. Our core value at Zaytuna Tours is to be an active agent in the establishment of sustainable halal tourism as the only key solution against the fast and massive tourism trends. Besides, we wish to increase awareness on the importance of an equitable interpretation of the history and a fair representation of the local tradition and inhabitants with a sincere treatment of these two actors. Personally I have a BA in Social and Cultural Anthropology and at this moment I am the director of Zaytuna Tours Travel Agency. I was always working in the tourism sector around Europe, and I had the pleasure to be a freelancer entrepreneur owning a Bike Taxi in Amsterdam. My main goal now, since I am located in Córdoba is to share my experience and my modest knowledge of the past of Andalusia. I really enjoy having conversations related to history and I hope that I will make your walk through Córdoba worth of remembering.

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!
