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.

Description

It has already been three years since my German Shepherd passed away and went to dog heaven. I used to walk him nearly every weekend in local recreational areas.

Along the way I often stopped at a small buffet for a special syrup-sweetened tea and a typical Slovak waffle bar or boiled sausage with mustard and bread. Sometimes it was possible to find mushrooms in the forest, too.

Nowadays when I want to spend some time in nature, I usually go with my partner to a shelter for unwanted dogs and help out by taking one or two of the dogs for a walk.

Would you like to share this experience with me and see where Bratislava locals go to jog, have barbeques, paddle small boats on lakes in summer and even ski in winter?

I’d be very happy for you to join me :-)

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.

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!
A Fantastic day in the Forest
for Erich
This was a beautiful tour on a lovely sunny February day through a lovely park/forest area. Our 3 children were looking forward to this so much and were not disappointed, each spending the day with gorgeous friendly dogs. Erich informed us about the local area, some of the history and we all had a good chat about politics. This tour is highly recommended if you're looking for something 'off the beaten track'. Our children are still talking about THEIR dogs and it was without doubt, the highlight of our time in Slovakia.
