Tour by Erich
Local

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.

A great local
Erich was an outstanding guid, and a friendly conversationalist! I feel honoured that he took time out to show us around the market. If we had the time, we would’ve gone dog walking with him too. Make sure to look us up if ever in England, Erich!

Cheers

Lunch with the locals.
We met Eric at the local food market. He was very friendly and easy to speak to. He had good English. We walked through the various different food stalls sampling some of the local foods. Eric always explained what it was and how it's prepared. He purchased different cheeses and breads, cabbage and salad bits and bites as we walked around. At the end we sat inside a small bar/cafe where we sampled local wines and a delicious brandy while eating all that we had just bought. Overall it was a lovely relaxing way to sample the local food and drink from Bratislava with a friendly local guide.
Adventurous tour
Thank you Eric. You took us through the market at just the right speed, sharing your own thoughts and your knowledge of the local foods. I loved the fact that you took us to stalls and bought us what the locals eat! We saw the queues but would not have known what to ask for without your guidance. We loved the pickled veg..especially the sweetcorn and my fav was the beetroot. The picnic at the end of the tour warmed us up ( it was cold day). An amazing end to the tour. Thank you.
Definitely recommend this tour
Erich met us at the marked location on time and we had a lovely two hour tour of the central market. It is easy and cheap to get to on public transport.

It is definitely off the tourist trail, we were the only ones there with cameras! I would recommend this tour as Erich being a local was able to tell us some of the history of the market and share his insights into local life in Bratislava. His English is very good.

The food was local and authentic and there was lots of it. We wouldn't have know where to start with all of the food on offer but Erich explained what we were buying and a bit of the history. We have plenty of time to wander around the market before sitting down together with all of the food Erich had purchased as well as a couple of glasses of wine to share lunch together. Arrive hungry!

We had a lovely sunny Saturday lunchtime tour which I would recommend to anyone who likes food and is spending time in Bratislava.

Great Time!
The Happy Dog Forrest Walk is not something other countries offer (from what I could find) and it is quite rewarding too! You help the locals and have a great wat time learning about the country.we had a great time and this is definitely something I will do with other friends and family when I go back to Bratislava!
So neat!
We thoroughly enjoyed our dog hike. It’s great when you are traveling, missing your dog, and wanting to give back to a shelter.
The dogs were excited to be out in the woods and were fun to be with.
Erich was great. He was flexible to work with our schedule and delightful to be with.
I highly recommend this activity if you are a dog lover.
Awesome experience
