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.

I cant thank Juro enough for the day we spent trekking around Bratislava's highest point. We were in Bratislava for only 36 hours and Authentic Slovakia helped us make the most of our short time. We (a group of 6 students on Easter Holiday) signed up for the "Bratislava Hike and Drink" advertised on the company's website. We spent the... More

Informative, amusing, authentic, personal, unusual, entertaining. Brano really filled in the missing gaps not only explaining what and when but why. A real insight into recent Slovakian history and an optimistic hint at where this young country is headed. With Authentic Slovakia I could feel (via the Old Skoda) and taste (via Brano's treats) what Slovakia is all about.

It would be impossible to cover all this tour does in a visit of a few days. It was really enjoyable. A terrific friendly guide, who was very knowledgable. The pub we visited was a highlight but it may not be to everyone's taste but it is as real as it gets.

What a brilliant tour. Extremely nice owner/guide leading this interesting and fun tour around Bratislava. Things you will not learn on an average tour. This is a must!

My last destination on my short stay in Bratislava was the Post-Socialism-Tour by Authentic Slovakia. We drove in an old "ambulance car" through parts of the city and beyound you would never see to otherwise. it broadened my horizon and thaught me alot about the history of Bratislava. Would love to check out their other tours on my next stay.... More

We always try to find things a little out of the ordinary to do on a city break and we found Authentic Slovakia at No. 1 on TA, offering post socialist city tours. We booked the 2 hour tour online and had a quick response to confirm date and time. We were met by Peter, the owner of the company,... More

My girlfriend and I went on the post communistic tour in the VW van with Peter. We enjoyed thoroughly and found Peter really easy to talk to and have a laugh with. It made the tour not just factual but fun as well! The information itself was a good background of the post socialistic era that wasn't covered as much... More

We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to spend a day with Brano and it was an absolute highlight of our recent trip through Central Europe! He epitomises what good tour guides are all about! He is intelligent and passionate and really tailored the tour to suit us. The green VW is a unique and memorable way to get... More
