How do free tours work? It's simple, you're free to pay what you feel the tour was worth. Your lovely local guides don't receive any income other than tips from satisfied customers like you, meaning top quality tours on fair terms.

Booking is recommended to reserve your space, especially during high season & at weekends. This helps us to guarantee you'll receive a top quality tour!

Groups of 7+ must book online 24 hours in advance. Please note, fixed rates apply for groups joining the tour.

Please note, groups of 7-15 people who book to join the tour are not guaranteed their own guide. Should your group require their own guide, we recommend you use our contact form to arrange a private tour exclusively for your group.

Tours usually require a minimum number of participants to run. In the unlikely event of too few participants, however, we will always endeavor to run a tour or provide an alternative, at our discretion.
