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!

It was a very nice tour! Our guide Tom is very friendly, with good english and with a deep knowledge of the culture and history of the city. The tour was so interesting that the hot and humidity did not stop us from walking around.

Hi! Sorry but my friends and I thought the tour was very boring, the guide didn't show much passion when she spoke about the buildings and she seemed very impatient with us when we wanted to stop to look properly at the art gallery and to take photos of things, she was rushing us a lot and we were left unsatisified and didn't learn anything. The guide was very friendly so I give two stars for that.

Response from Wonderful Myanmar travel:

Hello, Celina Sosic! Thank you for sharing your feedback with us here! We really appreciate taking the time to share your feedback and being so open with us. We are so sorry to know that your visit/ experience with us fell short of expectation. As we organize the join-in group tour, please understand that people have different pave and timing and have to manage the tour on time. According to the guide report, you and your friend were late 15 minutes to join the tour. So she and other travelers had to wait for you. also, at the end of the tour, she informed you to see off you, for two of you, to the art gallery as FOC. But it was turned down by you. That is coming from her side. Understanding both sides story, we want to say really sorry for misunderstanding for that. We also strictly instructed to give enough information to travelers with a deep passion for showing around the areas of the colonial buildings. We thank you for giving a chance to make things right. We are using your feedback to make important changes, Celina Sosic!

Despite the rain, tin zar was energetic and engaged to show us the best of Yangon. She and her colleague Shen Mae were flexible and showed us the meandering streets of downtown. Really lovely girls with kind smiles! One recommendation-if the tour guides could show some pictures of the colonial buildings in their would a wonderful dimension to the tour

Response from Wonderful Myanmar travel:

Thank you so much for sharing your experiences with us! We are very happy you enjoyed the tour with Tin zar and Yamin(Shen Mae) Of course, it is a good idea to use visiual aids. Some of the tour guides here use pictures of colonial buildings. Some are not but we keep it in mind and instruct the assigned guides to do it. We always try to give better service for travelers of the world.Thank you, Jennifer!
