Normal guy trying to enjoy life. I was living with a younger boyfriend/partner with whom I was happy and our family supported us, until in December 2016 he passed away of lymphoma. I am running my own eshop with flower bulbs, ornamental and fruit shrubs and trees, perenials, grasses as well as an unusual hostel in our greenhouse. In my free time I am working as a tourist guide presenting several tours. My other leisure activities are hiking, riding a bicycle, swimming, walking with dog or meeting and talking to foreign people. In 2013, I started an association called "Vypestuj Dobro" (= Grow Good), which tries to encourage people to share their surplus of garden produce with the families with children in need. I really enjoy working on it.

We’ll choose among Slovak, Hungarian, and Austrian dishes, and finish off with some amazing homemade pastries. All food is included in the tour price.

Recommended!
One of the best tours we have ever done!
It was really a highlight during our stay in Bratislava! We enjoyed every second of this tour, something innovative and informative where one learns about the traditional food and beverages of Slovak people. Erich (the guide) was a great tour guide, sharing all his knowledge about the Slovaks and it shows that he loves doing this job. The price is very cheap compared to other food tours. Highly recommended!
If you love cheese, this is the perfect tour.
Nothing is worse than being hungry in a country you can't speak the language, which is why this tour is perfect. Erich is a very knowledgeable local guide who shows you around the markets, answers your questions on all things Bratislava and Slovakia, and treats you to local delicacie; from cheeses and meats to local brandies and blackcurrant wine. Perfect opportunity to live like a local and have an authentic meal.

Awesome experience
Great to get out the city and great tour guide!
Three hours of non stop laughs
If you are looking for something different to do on holiday, then I would suggest doing this. It was such a nice experience to walk for three hours in the beautiful forest park with Erich as a guide. It was mentally relaxing, and we couldn’t stop laughing for the whole trek. Erich is very friendly with a good grasp of the English language. The dogs were pulling throughout the whole trek, which made the whole experience funny. I totally recommend this experience to someone who loves dogs and wants to see the greener part of Bratislava! Well done Erich.
