We loved this tour! Peter was great at sharing fascinating history while also telling us his own experiences growing up in communist Bratislava. The car was beautiful and also fun, and felt very safe all things considered! We had done a tour of the historic areas the day before, and Peter was great about showing us new things and focusing on how the city changed from before WWII to present. We drove all over town, and really felt like we walked away understanding the city better. This tour is a family business - Peter and his brother run the tours, and the cars were his parents. I really felt like he captured the history, and gave us insights into his history too. Would absolutely recommend to anyone!

It is a good expecience because you can get to visit different parts of the city. Most tours just cover the old town and the castle, but this tour offers the posibility to go to slavin and petrzalka on the same day.

What a ride we had! Our guide Peter was briljant! He even took time to guide us after the tour. We only can recommend this tour, we had the best time!

Fantastic tour, highly recommended. A very engaging guide in a grand aged Skoda, with regular stops all around the city. Brilliant

We enjoyed seeing Bratislava from a different perspective very much. Our guide new his city from the inside out.
