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!

Me and two friends did the walking tour with Leo. He was a great guide with a lot of information and enthusiasm for the city. He was very friendly and helpful. He gave great recommendations for things to do and places to eat and drink. If you're in Leon definitely do the tour with him.

Leonel was an amazing guide - he is very nice, passionate and caring. He made it a very personal experience and it was one of the highlights of our Central American trip. It’s great to hear about the city from a real Nicaraguan. The walking tour should not be missed :)

The Walking Tour with Leonel was a great way to get to know the basics about Leóns history and culture. As you are casually walking through the center you will closely feel the vibe of the city while Leonel gives well-grounded information about the city's eventful history. Definitely recommended.
