What will you find in this tour?

Founded more than two thousand years ago, Braga is Portugal’s most ancient town and the third biggest in Portugal. With the help of our guides you will discover the origins of good old Roman Bracara Augusta, stroll through its medieval streets, admire the most wonderful treasures of Portuguese baroque art and get into its Cathedral, which has been claiming for religious Primacy in the Iberian peninsula for one thousand years.

Our tour will make you understand not only the important historical heritage, but also its prosperous present, which has led Braga to be named the Second Best European Holiday Destination of 2019.

We will start our tour at the pre-Roman baths, a 2000-year old archeologic gem. From there we will move to the thermal baths and the theatre so we can appreciate the change after the arrival of the Roman Empire. Once admired these classic remains, we will get immersed in the Middle Age by going through the walls and visiting a multitude of churches and monasteries that makes Braga be Portugal’s religious capital city. This pilgrimage will end with the guided tour inside the Cathedral, including the cloisters, the chapels and the choir which will be exclusively open for us.

I was in Porto and came across the free tour by chance. I liked it so much that I also signed up for the medieval one and the visit to the wineries (one of the best investments of my life). I would never know so much about Porto and Portugal if it weren't for Paloma. I have traveled quite a bit and Paloma's personal stamp on her work makes her passion for the city she loves so contagious. His memory and explanations are simply prodigious. If you go to Porto, do not hesitate to try to visit the city with Paloma. You will not regret it.

Pablo Tuñón Laguna

Ana has been a fantastic guide, she has discovered the hidden Porto for me, telling the stories through its streets and monuments. I have loved his way of maintaining attention and tension at all times, a very good guide, he knows his tour very well and is very pleasant to listen to. He is definitely a tour and guide I would have no hesitation in recommending.

Paula RA

Great. Both the city tour in the morning with Guillermo, and the medieval Porto tour in the afternoon with Paloma, were very interesting. Very well explained and very entertaining. Highly recommended to get to know Porto and its history. Guillermo and Paloma, in addition, are very nice.

Andrea Solanas

Guillermo, medieval tour: excellent guide, everything super well explained, dynamic. He advises you about the city, recommendations of cheap and worthwhile places, advice from local people is appreciated.

Marco Antonio

Wonderful tour that Paloma has given us in Porto, one of the best free tours I have done so far, the passion is undeniable, and only that is to be thanked but it also accompanies it with humor, knowledge and closeness, in addition to the didactic . My pleasure.

I joined a free walking tour of this company in Porto. Sandra was the best fwt guide I have ever met. She told us everything about the city. She was so kind and friendly. If I come back to Porto, I will join her another tour

Aníbal González-Arintero Berciano

On Thursday we did the Porto free tour with Paloma, a machine (more guides like Paloma when you arrive in a city for the first time, please).
In the afternoon we repeated the "medieval" with her and on Friday we went to Gaia with Rocío, very nice.
We also met Guillermo, a crack.
Good luck to everyone and a hug, Aníbal and Sergio.
