Adventoura Slovakia are brilliant. The tour guide for Erik has knowledge and passion for the area and a great network of people to offer a wide range and variety of experiences.

Erik came out of his way to tell us all about the area and give us tips on the best places to visit, he is a legend!!

On our second last night after a day skiing we had a horse carriage ride round the East Tatra mountains and shared some hot wine and food over an open fire with a local Slovakian family, it was a brilliant experience and one we would not of had the chance to do without Adventoura Slovakia.

Thanks for all your help Erik, looking forward to our next visit.......

I recently spent a week with Erik Sevcik ,the owner and
operator of Adventoura exploring the High and Low Tetra Mountain
Regions of Slovakia. The Carpathian Mountains were on my bucket
list of "Places to Visit While on Planet Earth Before You Leave " .

Erik is a young, fun loving guide who is a native of this incredibly
beautiful area of Slovakia .His vast historical and cultural
knowledge of the area offers a personal insight into the daily
lives of the local people.This is what I was looking for in
choosing a guide .Experience and Passion!

I really appreciated his patience in developing a flexible itinerary
for me that emphasized my choices of personal interests .He replied to
all my pre-trip emails with extreme efficiency and promptness .
Once Erik got to know me through my emails ,he provided me with a even
better choice of things to do and see upon my arrival .He was very
quick to offer suggestions that would enhance my visit.
Erik has an excellent command of the English language .
His vast knowledge of the hidden country back roads allowed me to
visit a large number of off the beaten path mountain villages that
are rarely visited by tourists which provided me with excellent
photographic experiences. He was very concerned that my expectations
were being met .If not ,he wanted to change things that would satisfy
my interests along the way .

He knows where all the good local eating places are that offer a
variety of cuisine choices .
I was impressed with his ability to quickly change the itinerary on a
daily basis due to the adverse weather conditions that we experienced
some days thus very day was a day well spent .In the end ,I was still
able to visit all the places and do all the things that were on my
list.
Due to his encyclopedic knowledge of the area , I was able to visit
more towns and villages than I ever expected to see .He knows a
lot of local people and that is a great plus when you are operating
a tour guide service as you have a resource base that you can tap
into in order to fulfill the client's unique requests.

Erik is also an adventure sport tour leader who specializes in
overnight mountain trekking ,and adventure sports.He is a
professional skier who teaches skiing and snowboarding during the
winter months at local resorts .If you want to experience a variety
of winter related sports then Erik is the man to contact.

His reliable Fiat was an excellent comfortable car for touring in .
I had a fantastic time visiting some of his friends that live in
the out of the way small mountain villages .These were the type of
experiences that I was hoping to acquire while on this trip.I wanted
to meet the every day common people of the area and share
experiences with them .

At the end of my tour Erik gave me a CD of photos that he had
taken along the way highlighting my visit .

In summary ,I had a most remarkable ,safe and fun time with Erik .He
is a very down to earth guy who really has a lot of passion for his
job and his country. Having visited close to 120 countries, I have
experienced a lot of tour guides along the way and I can honestly say
that I cannot find any flaws with Erik's services .He is a super
talented guide who wants you to leave having being totally
satisfied with his services and that you will also leave having
many fond memories of his homeland and its people.I was 100%
totally satisfied with his services ,Thanks to him , I left his
country with an extreme amount of passion for its people ,history
and unique environment ,a country that I plan to return to someday.
Thanks ,Erik !

Eight friends and I have just got back from a driving holiday in Eastern Europe and I can honestly say that the time we spent in Slovakia was the highlight of a thoroughly enjoyable trip. This is in no small part because of Erik, who personally took us for three activity filled days in and around the High Tatras mountains.

From initial contact, several months before, I found Erik very professional and flexible, which was certainly needed in order to tailor a package that would suit the needs of all nine of us

We eventual settled on a package which contained a sightseeing tour (including cable car upto 1800m) of various stunning areas within the High Tatras, a cycle ride through the mountains, rock climbing, a tour of Spis Castle and an afternoon at a geothermal spa.

All these activities were exceptionally enjoyable due to the knowledge and enthusiasm of Erik along with the clear preparation and planning he undertook for each aspect.

What really set using Adventoura apart from other similar companies I used around the world was all the addition things Erik did for us outside of 'contracted' intinerary: taking us to local restaurants for lunch and teaching us about tradition Slovakian cuisine, recommending excellent places to go on the evening, arranging local (and, hence, cheaper) taxis for us for our nights out...basically Erik ensured we had a great time from the moment with arrived until the moment we left.

If you want to enhance your experience of Slovakia then Adventoura is a great way to ensure you make the most of your trip.
