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!

Al principio nos dio desconfianza porque se tiro un poco abajo por no ser guia profesional (no deberia hacerlo) pero en seguida nos dimos cuenta que era muy bueno, que sabia mucho sobre la historia de la ciudad y sus lugares y lo transmitia bien. recomendable!

Tour imprescindible para empezar a conocer la historia de florencia. atahualpa lo explicó de forma muy amena para que todos lo entendieramos, incluidos los más jóvenes, y no se hizo nada pesado.

Muy buen trabajo de atahualpa. se nota que conoce la ciudad a la perfección y transmite sus conocimientos con gran entusiasmo. además de los datos históricos y artísticos de sus explicaciones, da muy buenos consejos prácticos a seguir una vez finalizado el tour. muy buena experiencia, lo recomiendo
