What can make a free walking tour a great one?

The answer is very simple. Our guides are not just a bunch of volunteers, but professional city experts, members of Anglotourismo team, who run our regular canal and river cruises. Eager to feel hard ground under their feet once in a while they'll come out of the way to share their knowledge and enthusiasm with our visitors on this informative and interactive walking tour. In fact, they all took part in designing this tour that makes it a perfect selection of the top sites and stories Anglotourismo has to offer!

How our free daily walking tour works

It is a free tour, so you don't have to pay for it. It runs daily rain or shine regardless of the number of participants. Nevertheless, please, note that the guides do not get any compensation for this particular job either from our company or any other sponsor and they run the tour on tips-only basis. Be assured that none of them will be pushing it, but a relevant tip would be very much appreciated as long as you feel the service you received was worth it.
