The walking tour was highly recommended! I would just not book it here but on the spot! It is a free tour and you can pay afterwards what you thought it was worth. According to the guide, they will not receive anything from this reservation. So you basically lose money twice because you don't want to leave the guide empty-handed.

Amazing tour by Eugene! However, I booked through Get your guide to “secure our spaces”. This is not necessary and you can just turn up at the square and join the tour for free. I wonder how much of the booking fee actually goes to the guides? All the guide asks is for you to pay what you think they deserve! Amazing all round lasted and 2.5 hours.
