1. Dear guest, in case the tour will be booked by 4 people or less, I am really sorry but the tour will probably be cancelled. We will try to find a solution so that we can do the tour. However I will inform you the day before the tour.
2. Dear guest, the tour is scheduled to last approximately 3 hours and 15 minutes but depending on the walking pace of all participants, it may take longer.
3. Dear guest, for our convenience the tour start time may change depending on the weather, especially during the summer to avoid the heat or when bad weather is expected. We will decide and agree together the day before the tour on this matter.
4. Dear guest, the free tours do not have a pre-established price and at the end of the tour each person leaves the guide the amount they deem appropriate (depending on the level of satisfaction) but taking into account that the guide pays a commission to the Guru walk platform of 2 euros for each person participating in the tour.

Thanks for your time. A greeting. See you soon. 😊
