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.

A fantastic tour that I can't recommend highly enough. Brano was an extremely knowledgable and entertaining guide, sharing stories about his childhood during Communist rule. We saw (and learnt) so much that we wouldn't have done otherwise - particular highlights for me were the former Slovakia - Austria checkpoint (with a moving memorial to the last person who died trying...

This was an absolutely fantastic tour of the sights and stories behind Bratislava's communist history. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of this with us which really brought the tour to life. He also had a good sense of humour which also made the tour really good fun as well. If you ever visit Bratislava I... More

Really wonderful tour, giving a unique view of the city and its history. Not just the usual tourist traps, but the real city. Can't recommend highly enough - highlight of our trip, thanks!

It was both fun and interesting to go around with Petr in his Skoda and hear about the city and see places, you would not find on your own or by foot. I for sure recommend this trip for any one who wanna see a bit more of the city and with a both fun and insightful guide. We had... More

Was recommended this tour after meeting VisitBratislava (the tourist body) at a travel event in London. We went on this 2 1/2 hour tour as part of a group trip during a weekend in Slovakia. Juro and Erich met us in a central location with their vans, including an older Skoda van, drove us around the great city locations for... More

We were in Bratislava for a long weekend on a stag do with a group of friends who are into their history and less obvious stag do activities :) A friend found out about these guys at a tourism exhibition through work in London and we booked a day or two in advance - all very easy and accommodating. The... More

A few hours in the fresh air, cycling through city, over the river and into the woods. Some history at each stop, tour of an abandoned bunker, then some Communist-era beer and cola. A real eclectic mix with a relaxed, educated guide. Bikes were good and we went at a nice fast speed, ideal for three 14 year olds. A... More

My husband and I took the tour with Petr and his Skoda. We opted for a 2 hour tour but could have quite happily stayed with him longer. He showed us some very cool things and gave us insight in to modern day Bratislava. We really enjoyed it. And we loved the Skoda! Fun to see how much he knows... More

My brother and I recently visited Bratislava and looked up Authentic Slovakia on the recommendation of a friend. I can safely say that it was the best decision we could have made. We did the Iron Curtain Bike Tour on our first day and Juro was such an informative guide that we decided to do a second tour the next... More

Got picked up in two beautiful old Skodas, that's an experience itself! Enough space for 10 people and a lot of fun. Great stories, great locations, not the usual tourist tour. Great value for the money, we really had fun throughout the tour. In the end we even received great restaurant tips. Thanks again guys! #doubleclutch
