What people are saying about Bratislava

I selected this tour because it has a group bus tour that brought us to Bratislava and the local guide truly met us at the Bratislava. In short, I didn’t have to be searching around in the bus terminals! The short walking tour of the old town with local guide Ivan was very informative. The rest of the afternoon gave enough time for exploring on your own (lunch, going inside churches, souvenir shopping). The Castle was not part of the tour but it was easy to go to on your own (by foot or by separate tourist tram which I took!). The catarman ride back to Vienna was very convenient and comfortable. Highly recommended!

We really enjoyed the day trip. Everything went well. We were a little unsure about the meeting point, because the area "in front of the opera" is quite extensive. Our guide...well, I didn't find it very convincing. Was too quiet and a bit hectic. But otherwise it was nice, still had enough time to look at everything, feast and shop. Gladly again!

Bratislava old city and history wonderful way to spend the day. Saint Martin’s church beautiful especially the alter stained glass.

Very informative, responded to the wishes of the participants. They got to know and appreciate the city of Bratislava very well.

Pleasant day trip, nice, courteous, friendly team on board. Good food. Recommended.
