Alternative tourist agency offering minivan and retro car trips in Bratislava and surroundings for unbeatable prices. Visiting Bratislava for only 1 day? Not enough time to explore authentic suburbs of Bratislava yourself? Then join our 2-hour or 4-hour Post socialist Bratislava city tour. Not enough time to get the taste of Slovakia? Then join our Slovak Village Pub Crawl. Tired of the city rush? Try Little Danube Canoe Trip. Longing for travelling back to the past? Visit spooky ruins during our 1-day castle tours. However, having stayed only in Bratislava, you can hardly say you have seen authentic Slovakia. Allow yourself 2 days or more to explore mountainous areas off-the-beaten-track. For real nature freaks we have prepared great hiking trips. If you are greedy for mysterious touch with medieval times, you will find it at gloomy castle ruins watching deep Slovak forests from above.

We did the Iron Curtain bike tour with Juro - an outstanding and incredibly knowledgable local who made the whole experience feel like we were just on a bike ride with an old friend! Juro provided us with endless knowledge and thought-provoking and evocative discussions throughout. He took us 'off the beaten track' where we discovered abandoned WW2 bunkers as... More

We took the 2 hour Post Socialist Tour of Bratislava. Peter picked us up from our hotel in the Skoda, which made its way manfully through the streets of Bratislava. It was surprisingly comfortable despite the lack of suspension! It certainly turned heads. We spend a very interesting tour around various sights, Peter was an excellent host and we were... More

My brother's host parents from the US came to visit him to Slovakia and at this occasion he booked the postsocialism tour, I accompanied them because I was curious. Both me and me brother have read an article about Authentic Slovakia in Slovak newspapers before. I am a Slovak, I moved to BA 4 years ago because of my studies... More

I booked 3 different tours with Authentic Slovakia and every single one was awesome. They are very quick at communicating via the internet. We did the Northern experience tour the first day with Brano & Juraj (George), due to the rain we had to adjust the schedule, we visited a nuclear power plant, went Trenchin Castle meet some other americans...

The tour was really easy to organise, and we were picked up in front of our hostel. Juro, our guide was super keen to show us around, and he was very knowledgeable on the city. He really made the drive fun and made for a superb experience. I can highly recommend this tour as part of anyone's travels through Bratislava.... More

Easy to organise in advance by email. Picked up by a fun, informative guide who provided lots of information, anecdotes and humour. Fun as well to ride in what looks like a toy car from a Kinder Egg. Thanks for a great tour- well recommended.

Peter is a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable guy. Very friendly and bright, he will answer your questions and you can tell he really enjoy being a guide. The car is really cool and great fun!

We went on the tour with Brano and a sunny Sunday morning. We were smiling when we saw the lovely old Skoda and then did not stop laughing for the whole remaining time we were touring through Bratislava. It was simply great! Brano is very knowledgeable and showed us parts of the city we would have never discovered. We truly... More

Very flexible in arrangements - we did 2 tailored trips. Hiking with Juraj was like a day trip with a friend! Peter was also really knowledgeable on the Skoda tour. Overall after 5 days in Slovakia, we found everyone we met super nice and helpful. Seriously, it must be the friendliest country in Europe!
