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!

I did the tour with Noel and it was really nice. He first gave me a short history lesson before the tour started which helped a lot during the tour. He always made sure all of my questions were answered. He told me he learned english from scratch which is really impressive since his english is at a decent level. All of the guides are in their twenties and eager to shiw you around their home town. Highly recommended!

good two hours to spend your time in Leon. learned a lot about the history of the country and he also explained to us what exactly happened last year when we asked for it. we tried local food, didn't have to walk much and our guide was happy to answer every question.
