This was a wonderful day at the Malik winery, a family owned winery in Modra. We were welcomed by one of the Malik brothers who offered a really casual and relaxed style to how they make their wines. They were generous with the wine tastings and gave us an insight into their family busiess. We also got to meet the head of the family who was so welcoming with us, and offered us a wholesome selection of meats and cheeses and just let us sip away exploring all their delicious wines, with small stories behind each one! What a perfect day, highly recommend. Also Modra has some lovely cafes near the winery that are worth exploring beforehand! Note - the tour doesn't include a visit to the actual vineyards.

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!

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