Like most "free" tours of this kind, this tour functions on a pay-what-you-want system. Since our guides only get paid through donations at the end of the tour, we reserve the right to cancel the tour if attendance is below 5. We hope you understand.
This tour runs every day except the following:
Independence Day (June 17), Pride day (August 17 2019) and Culture Night (August 24 2019).
In very rare cases there are unforeseen cancellations. We announce those on our Facebook page.
