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.

Iron Curtain Bike Tour: a must-do in Bratislava!
I had booked this bike tour ahead of time with Authentic Slovakia (and BikeBratislava) - Brano was very friendly and helpful.

They delivered exactly what they were promising and more! It was an absolutely amazing bike ride along the Danube, crossing the bridge (on a bike path of course), following trails, visiting an actual bunker, getting to the border between Austria and Slovakia, seeing remnants of the communist-era, etc. Our guide, Lubos, was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain everything and answer questions.

The tour is about 2.5-3 hours-long and is very easy if you've ever ridden a bicycle before (15 km, all flat except when going on bridges).

I highly recommend this tour!

I did it with my 3 teenage kids (14-15-17).

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.
Carpathian Castle Ruins Tour from Bratislava
Excellent tour
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.

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!

Great time, fantastic guide
I have taken so many tours and travelled a lot, but I was so pleasantly surprised by this tour. I think it is the best one I have taken in Europe!! We visited the cutest little towns, had coffee in amazing place, went underground and the best - were driving through the narrow streets of Znojmo while having a karaoke in the car!! The guide was safe driver (the streets reminded me Italy and she managed to maneuver perfectly) and so fun to be around
Bratislava to Prague One-Way Sightseeing Bus Tour
Great excursion outside the city
This guided bike tour is a great way to get outside of the city for some unique sights while getting a personal perspective on the history of Bratislava and Slovakia. 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 Post-Socialist City Tour.

That was the second tour I took with the company and I loved it.
I took a tour from Prague to Vienna, then took a regular bus from Vienna to Bratislava (they are really close) and another tour back with Sidetrip from Bratislava to Prague and I think it was a great way to do it. I saw so much, met other like-minded travellers and really enjoyed the tours.
Bratislava to Prague One-Way Sightseeing Bus Tour
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.
