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 came to Lima with a group and we had only 1 day to see the highlights. So happy I found Alex :)

He kindly helped me to organize our program for whole day, involving 2 guides Mariana and Adrian, as well as transportation with Alejandro. Both guides are very knowledgeable and friendly. The fact that Mariana is involved in community work in the neighborhoods of Barranco and Chorillos made me appreciate the tour even more. Also we had seviche master class in a family house in Chorillos. That was the best presentation of culture ever and at the end we got the most delicious ceviche in my experience.

I'd suggest to explore Lima with Alex or his friends to everyone. That will be unforgettable :)

Great tour. Mariana was super knowledgeable and friendly, ready to answer any questions. Barranco is really hip and a must for when visiting Lima. Gracias Mariana!
