I love literature and travelling so I studied English Philology and, for that reason, I am here, to show my city in the way I would like to know other cities in the world. I love meeting people and talking. Mi grandes pasiones son la literatura y los viajes, por eso estudie Filología Inglesa y por eso mismo, estoy aquí, para enseñar a todos mi ciudad, y mostrar Madrid de la forma en que a mi me gustaría conocer otras ciudades del mundo. Me encanta conocer gente y hablar.

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!
