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.

Slavo is very kind, funny and informative tour guide we ever met. He is very attentive and he is very professional about his work. First we think Kosice is a boring city but after 1 day visiting the caves, the castle, and nearby tourist spot, we changed our mind and we love it! Thanks to Slavo!

Slavo provided a very interesting and engaging tour experience around the edges of tourist Košice. He skillfully and generously blended local knowledge, humor and insight into a great few hours. The Skoda has its own personality and riding in it was worth it alone.

Very informative view of what life was like during and after communism. Riding in an old Skoda is a great time traveling experience and ties well with the historical aspect of the tour. Slavo took great care of us and provided us with delicious Eastern European snacks, drinks, and fun conversations. Make sure to get the hazelnut flavor when stopping for ice cream, it's the best! Overall the tour is a must see eye opening experience and is interesting to see the same Lenin statues around the world (the same hidden statue of Lenin on the tour is also in Seattle).
Thank you! Jana & James

My husband and I booked a 4 hour tour with Slavo, which ended up lasting 5 hours! All questions were answered, and a lot of information was given re the history and the current situation in Kosice. We saw interesting buildings, off the beaten track places, and fascinating street art/murals. We also had very welcome snacks and drinks. All very relaxed. The car was fab!! Slavo was excellent. Would highly recommend.
