What people are saying about Bratislava

Great wine, great fun and really great value. A trip not to be missed. What a wonderful experience. We were lucky enough to have our wine tasting hosted by Mr Malik sr himself. Such an interesting host and story of the vineyard. The wines were all beautiful and thoroughly explained and accompanied by a lovely selection of regional nibbles. The only downside is we don’t have enough baggage allowance to take more bottles home with us to the UK.

Four of us booked the wine tasting as a birthday gift and we really enjoyed it. You could choose the wines and you learned something about the production and the place Svaty Jur, but also about the general history of Bratislava. There is something for everyone for wine experts and wine lovers. Thank you Katarina for doing the tour with us! We are happy to recommend :)

Hector was a very sympathetic guide and gave me a lot of exciting information on the tour. He was always very helpful and I was able to stop and take photos everywhere. I can only recommend the tour to others

Great way to see the city and get a good overview. Hector was a lovely tour guide and offered good info and personal tips. After a few mins the Segway was easy to use.

Lovely wine. Excellent size portions. Knowledgeable host.
