Very informative tour and visited many relevant places that we could not easily visit by public transport (or even knew were interesting). Had two non-English speakers with us of which one person with reduced mobility, and the tour guide was very considerate in taking his time while we translated and walked. Even went out of his normal route to make it easier for us to get around. Would recommend!

An extremely interesting tour, it took us to places we wouldn't have found on our own. Driving around in an old Skoda added to the atmosphere. Our guide Maroš was very knowledgeable and friendly and could answer all our questions. To be recommend!

It is a good expecience because you can get to visit different parts of the city. Most tours just cover the old town and the castle, but this tour offers the posibility to go to slavin and petrzalka on the same day.

Real nice guide and it is good to see the "other"side of the city too!

Very nice guide (Jean), interesting information and places where we went. Great to do that in such an old Skoda (1971). The guide was very patient, has a great knowledge of history and had it organized really good!

We enjoyed seeing Bratislava from a different perspective very much. Our guide new his city from the inside out.
