NOTES:
1. Dear guest, in case that you are 4 or less people to book the tour, I have to reschedule the tour at another time or even day if its possible for you to participate otherwise I am really sorry but we will probably have to cancel the tour. We will see about that and try to find a solution so we can do the tour. Anyway I will notify you the day before the tour is programmed, so in any case you will have the possibility the day after to book a tour with another Guru.
2. Dear guest, the tour is programmed  to last about 2 hours and a half, but depending on all guest's walking rhythm, it may take more.
3. Dear guest, for our convinience the tour time start may change a little bit depending on the weather, especially during summer to avoid the heat. We will decide and agree together the day before the tour about that.
Thank you for your time. ūüėä
