Brian was fantastic, we loved every minute of our tour in his vintage Skoda. He is a brilliant historian, with great knowledge both past and present, shaped by his own experience. He also had a great sense of humour which made the journey fly. Would highly recommend!

Great tour!!! Brian is amazing!! If you only have one day to explore Bratislava like us, this is the tour you shouldn’t miss! Very entertaining and informative, and the car is very enjoyable to take!! Highly recommended!!

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

Peter was very interesting and fun. As his knowledge was mostly personal it really brought the experience to life.
