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!

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 The Wonderful:

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!

Hello, Michelle! Thank you for your feedback! Let me get a chance to explain no show on that day. I usually look at the tour booking. When i observed it in the morning, there was no booking for that day. Normally on that day, tour schedule is 3:30pm. I came to know (later in 2;00pm) that you booked it as last minute booking. So, i have no time to prepare for booking as i live a bit far away from downtown. Even though i normally don't run free walk if there is solo traveler when there is no other booking, but i would have rescheduled or arranged something for you if you booked me earlier. I am so sorry for your inconvenience. Please take note that once i knew your booking, i replied it right away. I think you got it? Your review made me feel sorry and have a chance to fix something that i should mention if it is a last minute booking, you should directly ask to the guide and need guide's confirmation. Anyway, thank you for that! Regards, Htun

YeHtun was a great guide, very friendly and welcoming and knowledgeable about the history. I'd been in Myanmar two weeks already and still learnt a lot of new things from him.
