Detailed and educational visit

Very good guide, very interesting. However, take the time and the energy to fully understand the meeting place which happens to be in front of the Opera, it is the only thing to remember (the indication of the place Machin and the avenue Bidule given turn on the order form and 24 hours before the service are misleading: the place in question is in fact an esplanade 200/300 m long, so you can easily find yourself at the other end, be "on" the place is not enough to find the appointment!). By randomly approaching a person who I thought was a competitor of the local service provider since I could not see any clear clues, told me to be in the right place. The badge of the local service provider is indeed written in "tiny" letters on supports boasting in "big" the Blabla city tour. Arrive early!

We had a very good experience with Linda. The tour was very heavy on historical information but she was happy to answer our questions about current Slovakian life when we asked them, and she gave us great information about events happening in the city during our stay.
