We loved this tour! Peter was great at sharing fascinating history while also telling us his own experiences growing up in communist Bratislava. The car was beautiful and also fun, and felt very safe all things considered! We had done a tour of the historic areas the day before, and Peter was great about showing us new things and focusing on how the city changed from before WWII to present. We drove all over town, and really felt like we walked away understanding the city better. This tour is a family business - Peter and his brother run the tours, and the cars were his parents. I really felt like he captured the history, and gave us insights into his history too. Would absolutely recommend to anyone!

We really enjoyed the private city tour. Our guide was very funny and had a great deal of knowledge about the city. We would do the city tour again at any time.

Eva was extremely personable and knowledgeable. She shared her information in a very engaging manner and incorporated personal experiences. Highly recommend!
