FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Give me one reason I should go on a walking tour with STARKIERO Walking Tour.
Our guides are people like you: they visited Andalusia, fell in love with the city and chose to live up to their passion for this region. That is why we are the best ones to know what you expect and how to show you around. And who knows, you might end up being one of us!
Is the tour going to be boring?
☺We designed the route and the tour so that they are entertaining for everyone.
How much should I tip? Is there a suggested donation?
Well, most tours charge 35 euros and up. STARKIERO is different - there is no fixed charge.
Each guest is free to give what s/he estimates the tour was to him/her. The best tip we had was 100 euros.
For us, if the guest gives us 40 euros at the end of the tour, it means that we did an excellent job.
25-35 euros means we did our job well. 20 euros means we should do better next time.
We love working this way, giving you the best we can.
How will I recognize the city guide?
Just come to the meeting point and look for guides in white with red ribbons and holding a red book!
We are definitely visible from all corners. You cannot miss us.
Is the walk fast?
No. We designed the walk so as to make it as pleasant as possible for all (including persons with reduced mobility and moms with strollers).
Do the walk really take place as scheduled, rain or shine?
Yes. Our tours take place as scheduled - rain or shine. Plus, in Andalusia, it rarely rains from May to November, and there is no heavy rain during the rest of the year (it depends on the year). Whatever the weather conditions, we will do everything we can so you have a good time.
Is it necessary to make a reservation?
It is not necessary, although a reservation will help us better organize the tours during busy seasons.
You can make reservations at .
Do you earn enough money to live by?
Being guides is definitely not going to make us rich but the thing is that we love our job of sharing our knowledge of Andalusia with people. About 50% of our income goes to marketing, brochures, websites... to make us visible in the market.
Are you sponsored?
No, we have no financial support (neither commercial or governmental).
We will visit museums during the walk?
Our concept is to show you the most of the city within the given time. That is why, we do not spend time going inside every building. That is also why it is a good idea to start your stay with us. Our tour will give you a general view of the city.
Can I bring children?
Of course! Children of all ages are welcome, even babies in stroller. If you are a group of families with children and babies though,
we recommend you to book a private tour. Contact us at , we will happy to provide you with more information.
What should I wear / bring?
We encourage you to wear comfortable shoes and cloths appropriate to the weather (water and a hat are good ideas in summer).
