If we shorten the 2-hour tour, do I get a discount?2023-05-06T14:41:27+02:00

No. Happy to explain;

Our guides are paid per given tour, not at an hourly rate. For this reason, we can’t give a discount if the tour is shortened or altered in any other way. We believe that our prices are fair and competitive, plus the guides also have to travel to & from the meeting point and are unable to take other shifts on the half-day of your tour.

We advise not to shorten the tours, two hours for a walking tour is a perfect time to get a quality tour at a relaxed pace. If you still desire to do it in less time, we are happy to give you the best tour possible in the requested time slot.
