We had a private guided tour for three - highly recommend. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. She told us everything... and much more about the history of Bratislava, gave insider tips about places to eat, etc. We were also able to collect over 20,000 steps that day ;-D

Ms Lubica was a very knowledgeable guide and we thank her for skill and ability to translate. We had a 2hour tour and with only 6 in our group easily covered it in 1.5hours. Overall we felt there was less to see in Bratislava than we expected but the tour was enjoyable.

Best choice for getting to know the city in one day. Our tour guide Milin was very friendly, funny and knowledgeable. We got to see some “hidden” places too!

This was a great tour. I would not have known as much of the history or seen as much as I did without a guide. We really enjoyed our day trip to Bratislava.

Susana was fantastic and her passion for Bratislava came through so clearly. A really fantastic experience.
