Tour Guides in Europe

We Love The Cities We Guide

Europe’s premier walking tour company

We live in a wonderful world which is full of beauty, charm, and adventure. And in our mind, the best way to explore any location is by foot. Not only you get a chance to see the main attractions but you also get a great possibility to take the unbeaten path, discover hidden gems. And who doesn’t like that?

Want even better experience and maximize your time during your visit? Guided walking tours are the best way to do that. But hold on… Don’t just take any walking tour. Take a tour that is guided by passionate local guides, just like we are at Walks In Europe.

From majestic Acropolis to medieval, fairytale Krakow and the hip vibe in Amsterdam. If you think that guided walking tours are just museums and standing in line, then our Lisbon walking tour will definitely change your mind. Or maybe oriental food experience in Istanbul? We don’t want to spoil your excitement, but we have curated walking tours for everybody’s taste in awesome cities around Europe.

Join us and experience the city the way would locals do. Not just another walking tour, but a tour that is created especially for you!
