We, Minho Free Walking Tours, are the best free walking tour company in Braga and Guimarães, the main cities of the Minho region. We are also the only one with local guides from Braga and Guimarães! :) You are going to have the best experience! You'll never forget our beautiful region full of green and granite! Minho Free Walking Tours is a local project founded by two history teachers on February 6th, 2016. It started its activity by conducting guided tours in the city of Braga every day, twice a day. Meanwhile, this project has grown, so now it is integrated into a cultural and social cooperative named Minho de Porta Aberta - Cooperativa Cultural e Social, CRL. At this moment, the project developed by locals provides guided tours three times a day in Braga, twice a day in Guimarães (only by reservation), Bom Jesus do Monte (only by reservation), and customized tours. The actual team consists of local resident professionals linked to different areas of knowledge such as History, Archeology, Urbanism, or Cultural Studies. We are available to join you and show you our region from our point of view as locals. Visit us!

A guia foi excelente, pena que muitos lugares não conseguimos aceder por ter que pagar, estarem em reforma ou estarem fechados. Uma cidade linda!
