We wanted a tour which wasn't just city centre and gave us a taste of Bratislava's and indeed Slovakia's history. Our tour guide Brana did just that. He used his own experience of being a local to share his knowledge as well as his education. The guide book really illustrated his points too. The bike tour was lovely.... We learnt about the city centre and beyond. Luckily it was good weather and we were treated to some historic refreshments! We loved Bratislava but loved it even more after our tour. It was flat in the main and about three hours long with plenty of interesting stops and conversations.

Awesome way to see the town and learn its history
Easy cycle, mostly flat, bike was in good condition and the guide was awesome.
He did make a couple of changes to suit my love for ww2 history.
Excellent tour

Great guide and tour - enjoyed doing something a bit different!

A must do in Bratislava
Awesome tour! Highly recommend to anyone visiting Bratislava. Very informative and fun!
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.
Very interesting tour with a great guide!
