What people are saying about Bratislava

Overall rating

4.6 / 5

based on 86 reviews

Value for money for €65. Breakfast, snack, apple strudel and evening buffet. Staff is super friendly. Take your time with questions. Unfortunately no stay of 4 hours in Bratislava but only 2.5 hours. Therefore sightseeing almost impossible. The description should also include the duration of the cruise. Outward journey approx. 4.5 hours. Return 6 hours. Arrival in Vienna at 10 p.m. No problem at all, but for parents (small children) it might be an advantage if they had this information. All in all it was a very nice day. Would also recommend it.

Fantastic experience. Our guide was KARIN. She did an incredible job and really took the time to explain everything about Bratislava to us. Top guide....

The tour of the city was great. I was the only guest so it was very private and I had the opportunity to ask lots of questions.

A great idea for a quick visit to Bratislava, of course, superficially and without entering museums / facilities.

A very complete day. Very well prepared and Andrej is very nice. Worth.
