Owner description: Take our funky retro tour in a legendary 1970’s Czechoslovak car Skoda 105/120 through the off-the-beaten-track places of the communist past, as well as recent transformations in Kosice, the metropolis of eastern Slovakia. Visit vast concrete housing estate areas, neighborhoods of rich and poor, a Cold War shelter, abandoned magnesite factory and railway tunnel. Local insight guaranteed!

Slavo was a welcoming and knowledgeable tour guide. He looked after us from start to finish and made sure we were fed and watered.

We highly recommend the tour as you get to see sights that you would not normally see following the typical tourist guide book. The Skoda adds to the experience and it was a joy for us to be passengers.

At the end of the tour, Slavo took us to a fantastic bar that brewed some of its own beer. What more can you ask for?

Overall, the tour was a fun and relaxed trip and we learnt a great deal about Kosice.

Thanks Slavo!

If you are visiting Košice this is an absolute must. Slavo is a perfect guide and shared a great wealth of knowledge about the history and the culture of both Košice and Slovakia.
This is no ordinary tour and we got to see some parts of Košice that others would not know about or dare to visit.
We were taken in a super cool car and shown some amazing places. The Stalin statue in a desolate out of town field was a real treat, as was Slavo's enthusiasm and charisma. Seriously cannot recommend this tour enough.
Make sure you book in advance and don't miss out on this absolute treat of a tour.

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!
