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. Need of the mountains? Go for our 1-day hiking trips. 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. « less

Authentic Slovakia was one of the most fun we’ve had with a tour. Never boring and always informative, Authentic Slovakia is not a typical tour with a scripted guide that have become a dime a dozen. Peter picked us up at the train station and dropped us off at our choice location after the tour was concluded. Peter our guide,... More

Really glad we took this alternative tour of Bratislava. We had already seen all the traditional parts of town that all tourists must see but wanted to see a bit of the gritty city too. Peter has a lot of local knowledge and insight and tells it with great humour. There were four of us in the green minivan and... More

If you want to understand some of the history of Bratislava and get a different angle on this beautiful town, you cannot do better than spend a few hours with Peter. He is a smart, sensitive and engaging guide and his Iron Curtain cycle tour is good exercise, great fun and very informative. It certainly takes you to places you... More

I did the Little Danube Canoe Tour with six friends while on a stag weekend and we had a fantastic time. Brano accompanied us on the tour and was an excellent guide. He is very knowledgeable about all things Slovakian and fitted in perfectly with the rest of the gang. The day was not only good fun and chilled out,... More

Did the 2 hour 'post-socialist city tour' and loved it! Truly amazing how much information, insight and history they pack into two hours... And doing the tour in a Vintage 1970's Škoda car made it all the more fun!

I was on the 4 hour tour with my parents and a friend (note: we were on a Volkswagen rather than the advertised Skoda since we were a big group). Brano, our tour guide and co-founder of Authentic Slovakia, is like that one friend we all have who loves throwing in random interesting facts and stories in a conversation, and... More

Just had an amazing tour today. The guide was just like a local friend touring the city which was amazing with you. The Skoda car was really cute and we saw Both the touristy parts as well as the off beaten paths. I would highly recommend it!:-))

We have just completed a two week trip starting in Passau and finishing in Bratislava and the six of us agreed this was undoubtedly the highlight for us. Make sure you sign up for the four hour trip like we did. You will see so much more.

This tour has been a real highlight of our time in Bratislava. Having spent the morning wandering round the historical centre, it was really interesting to explore the somewhat less attractive parts of the city and hear the stories behind them. It was Peter, the tour guide, who made this such an enjoyable experience. He was knowledgeable, interesting, hilarious, entertaining... More

Highly recommend doing something with these guys if you are ever in Bratislava. After having explored most of the more touristy areas of the city we (5 lads) were looking for an alternative outlook on Bratislava and we couldn't have asked for more! Brano went out of his way to sort a tour out for us and was an excellent... More
