About the Guru

We are a young team that left Spain in 2009 and we are in London to create this beautiful project. At the request of our "walkers" we grew up in Paris, Dublin, Berlin, Malaga, Cordoba and Budapest, teaching these cities to thousands of Spanish speakers. We are professional guides and we are madly in love with every corner of the cities we teach.

About the Tour

In our Free Tour Medina Azahara you will understand why its founder, the Umayyad Caliph from Cordoba Abderramán III, gave it the name of "The Shining City" .


The archaeological site was ordered to be built in 936 as a royal residence and seat of the government of Al-Andalus. Currently , it is considered world heritage and one of the most relevant and representative monuments in the history of medieval Europe .

In this guided visit to Medina Azahara, we will walk through the streets that once hosted the old Arab civil and military administration.

We will also travel back in time to get lost among its ruins, corridors, rooms of guardians and servants, mosques, towers and royal halls, the pool and the great portico, and imagine what life was like in that majestic palace.
You will also know the Interpretation Center of Medina Azahara.

Lamentable. Llegamos allí media hora antes de la visita y no había NADIE para recibirnos. Contacté con el gurú a través de la app cuando quedaban 5 minutos para comenzar la visita y recibí una respuesta pasada la hora diciéndome que estaban alli --lo cual no era cierto. Gracias a dios, había otra empresa de visitas guiadas que nos dejaron unirnos a ellos al ver que nos habíamos quedado tiradas. La comunicación con vosotros fue pésima y las instrucciones de quedada no son lo suficientemente concretas para alguien que no conoce la zona. Nos encontramos con dos empresas de guías que estaban mil veces mejor organizadas y que nos salvaron del apuro. Nunca más volveré a reservar con GuruWalk.

Muy bien organizado, con mucho contenido y muy didáctico. Vinieron tres niños de 8 a 11 años y se lo pasaron muy bien.
