We had a fantastic afternoon being shown all the different sides of Kosice and learning lots about the history of the area as a whole (on the 2 hour tour). Well worth doing this tour if you ever find yourself in Kosice!

Slavo provides an engaging four hour tour with ample insights into post Socialist Kosice. There is a great deal to talk about and see so I recommend the longer tour. You'll be sure to enjoy the tour with this friendly and engaging Slovakian.
