    What is a Free Walking Tour?

    Unlike regular tours, the tours are ‘free’ because there is no set price for taking a tour, no prescribed fee to pay regardless of the tour experience itself. Instead, you are free to ‘tip’ your guide as you see fit after your tour.

    Tipping your guide at the end of the tour means the power is yours. You decide what the tour was worth. So there is no risk of being ‘ripped-off’ or feeling like you didn’t get a pleasant local experience.

    All in all the free tour concept is a win-win scenario for both the traveller and local guide. Making authentic local tour experiences accessible to everyone regardless of budget. Free walking tours are an exciting alternative way to discover cities and support passionate local guides and regional touristic initiatives.
