“A great tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

This tour is excellent, the guides are excellents and can turn each tour in something unforgetable. I have done all the four walks and all were great. Congratulations to the guides!
I really recomend it to everyone that visit Porto Alegre to known very tipical places and not only the touristic ones and their story or to the people that live here and want to learn a litle bit more of their city. And it´s free, you only give in the end the amount you want.
Valeu! ;)

“Excellent Fun and Learning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Great way to have fun and get to know a little bit more about the city of Porto Alegre. Great tours and great guides. You will want to go every time to get to know even more about the city. Good for locals and good for people from other places also!

“Free Walk POA: History and fun combined”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

The walking tours the volunteers at Free Walk POA put together are an amazing and fun way to get to better know Porto Alegre. (POA is the airport code for Porto Alegre ICYMI). The guides take you to the most important sites in the city and include fascinating stories (and sometimes macabre!) about Porto Alegre's past that are often left out of the "official" history. In addition to the walking tour of the historic center (which is a must-do), there are also tours of other neighborhoods like Moinhos de Vento, Cidade Baixa, and Bom Fim. All are highly recommended!

“Great initiative and great execution”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

I really recommend anyone who lives or is just visiting Porto Alegre to join the awesome guides on this really amazing tour.
They will take you to some of the most important places on the city's history and tell you some great stories. You will get to know other cool people while having a good time learning about Porto Alegre.
I think every city should have something like this.
