Sweet Tour, worth the money!
What was out of anyone's control: We had bad luck and booked our tour on one of the coldest days of recent history (down to -14° C), so we couldn't take the Skodas - it just too cold. Definitely not our guide's fault. Instead we got to do the tour with a VW Caravan from 92.

Having said that, this tour was amazing and I'd recommend it to everyone! Our guide Peter knew a lot about the city, gave the tour a personal touch with his stories and (for this kind of tour not unimportant) drove us safely around town, in spite of the weather conditions.

I specifically like how Peter is interested in ruins and abandoned buildings (I am too) and knows where to find them. They are getting fewer, sadly.

I can only imagine how much cooler it would be with warm weather and in the retro cars. Seems I've to take the tour again some time ;)

If you get the chance, take the tour. Period.

Fantastic alternative view of Bratislava
My husband, 15yr old son and I loved our tour with Juro. We were met in an original 1971 Skoda 100 - such a cool little car. We learnt so much about Bratislava that we would not have known or seen otherwise. Juro kept us entertained the whole trip. We would definitely recommend this tour to everyone.

Carpathian Castle Ruins Tour - best day out in Slovakia!
We really wanted to do something to see a bit more of Slovakia and this tour did not disappoint. Our tour guide for the day was Peter who was incredibly knowledgeable and fun. Peter picked us up from the apartments and even on the way to the castles he pointed out numerous sites of interest and gave us tips for where else to to to take in the real Bratislava. The castles and scenery were really beautiful despite it being a foggy day, and Peter even treated us to a drink and some traditional Slovak snacks at a local pub. This was our favourite day of our whole time in Slovakia and was made so by how friendly, knowledgeable and helpful Peter was so we would like to say a big thank you (Ďakujem!) to Peter and Authentic Slovakia, we would definitely do some of the other tours if we went back.

Carpathian Castles Tour - A Must Do!
The Carpathian Castle Ruins Tour was one of the best experiences we have ever had in a trip. It is a “Must Do”. It was the perfect way to explore the Slovakian countryside and to get to know the Slovakian history.
We explored some spooky and picturesque Slovakian castles. We learned a lot about the Slovakian History, from the Middle Ages to the Communist and post-Communist era. We enjoyed the Slovakian nature: mysterious forests, local wildlife. Very beautiful scenery, untouched by tourism.
But the best part of our tour was our guide, Juro. He was an EXCELLENT guide. Friendly and knowledgeable at the same time. We had become friends by the end of the tour. Thank you Juro for making our trip unforgettable.

Post socialist tour
I had a great time in Bratislava overall, but the highlight of my stay was the Post socialist tour with Authentic Slovakia. Together with a nice Dutch couple I spent two hours + in a Skoda from the 1970's with a very knowledgeable and humorous guide (Juro). He really could tie Slovakia's communist past to the present and took us to places we would never have visited on our own. With a bit more time in Bratislava I would also have taken the "Iron curtain" cycle tour. Authentic Slovakia makes ordinary guided tours look hollow and boring.

A not to missed tour of Bratislava
I'm so pleased that I booked this alternative real view of the city. Our delightful guide and driver Juro was engaging and knowledgeable, driving my party in the "luxurious" and "modern" VW Caravelle! We learnt a great deal about the turbulent events that took place here in the 20thC. I had booked for four people but had three extras join, we were part of a choir visiting Bratislava. A brilliant morning. I highly recommend this to anyone. Juro returned the compliment by attending our concert in the evening.

Carpathian castles
We enjoyed the short castle trip with Peter. Despite heavy rains, we got to see and experience a whole different side of tourism. Peter was great - he knew tons, and it was great to ask random questions about the people, country and history, and get real answers. The castles were great, we had them all to ourselves. Far better experience than the endlessly similar museums, churches and castles you normally experience on an Eastern Europe journey. Would love to have done more with authentic Slovakia tours!

Interesting recent history of Bratislava
I'd like to thank our guide Brano for taking me and two others around the post-Socialist parts of Bratislava in his grandfather's old Skoda. It was a two-hour "Post Socialist City Tour" but the tour was so interesting and we enjoyed listening to Brano's tales of living in the city so much that it ran a little over time ... and no one cared. When you have seen enough of the pretty old town and feel like learning about it's more recent history, join one of Authentic Slovakia's tours.

A unique morning in Bratislava
We kicked off our first morning in Bratislava with this great tour and got much more than we expected. Thank you to Authentic Slovakia for the best part of our trip and for sharing your personal stories along with some unique sights! I can highly recommend Authentic Slovakia to anyone visiting!

We did this tour as a group of friends aged 35-40 and also took the Iron Curtain Bike Tour.

A Great Experience
We had a very nice tour with the fancy guids and their busses. They let us known all types of history of the city Bratislava. We were talking about a lot of things and there was enough space for a good joke on the tour.
When you are in Bratislava, call these boys!!!

Great way to see the past!
A great tour if you have a spare half day to get some exercise and explore the past. A small and personal tour, with knowledgeable friendly guide. We thoroughly enjoyed this opportunity to explore the Slovakian countryside and see ruins in their 'natural' state.

Post Socialist city tour
We took the tour with Yuro and was a educational and interesting. He was fun, spoke very good English, and was very knowledgeable about the area and the history. We enjoyed his Skoda and his honest opinions! Really made the country more interesting!

The trip can certainly be recommended to others. It was a fun and different way to experience the history of the city. Both the car and the driver made the experience really good :-)
