What people are saying about Bratislava

Very relaxed, very authentic and very personal. Wine tasting at this local family business was the best part of our trip to Slovakia. It is clear how much passion they have for their work and they are excellent at what they do. We took the train to Pezinok from Bratislava (~€2pp return) then the bus onward to Modra (~€2pp return). At the tasting we learned all about the history of Wine in the region and all about the process of wine making, and saw round the new venue they are currently renovating in Modra. We tasted around 9 samples to compare flavours and had bread, cheese and traditional Slovak cold pork. Fedors son who lead the tasting was a lovely charismatic person who knew his craft well. We really enjoyed sipping wine and chatting to him for a couple of hours in sunny Modra. I would 100% recommend this experience, if you are in Slovakia you must come and visit!

Unforgettable experience - cannot fault and hugely recommend

Family run business, authentic experience in a beautiful picturesque town. Fantastic tasting wine, devoted and genuine guide - an all-round winner that was the highlight of our holiday in Bratislava. Thank you for a truly unforgettable experience!

Great tour, it is private. They picked us up and the guide drove us to the place and back. Great attention, very friendly yet professional. The tour is a little bit expensive but worth all the details.

Very interesting tour of the castle, ceramic shop and wine tasting. Unfortunately, the wine museum was closed on Monday

Lovely tour guide and great wine tasting experience. I’m a massive fan of traditional currant wine now.
