Yes, Zlori it is free. At the free tours guest can leave anytime without payment. They tip at the end only if they were satisfied. That is why every guide is motivated, enthusiastic and critical. None of them is promoting restaurants hostels and pubs for commission!! Check out the picture galery and feel the atmosphere of the tours yourself:
