Wonderful experience with an amazing guide!
Erich was a wonderful host and we spent a great afternoon taking a bunch of shelter dogs out for a walk in a lovely forest near the city (which I wouldn't have discovered otherwise). Erich was extremely knowledgable and friendly, and we exchanged many stories on our leisurely hike through the forest – the dogs certainly seemed to enjoy the time out as well! I'd recommend this experience to anyone looking to experience a unique slice of Bratislava.
Happy Dog Forest Hike in Bratislava
Charming and knowledgeable
The beer pubs were away from the touristy main square and Bratislava is quite charming. Our guide did a great job.
Bratislava Craft Beer Tour
So much fun
This was awesome fun - a great way to see the city in a different way and learn some things at the same time. Highly recommend, especially to fans of escape rooms
Brainteaselava City Game
Great local experience in Bratislava
Erich is a great guide, knows about everything of the city, and the dogs are super cute and happy that someone took them walk for almost 3 hours ! Definitely one of the highlights in my trip !
Happy Dog Forest Hike in Bratislava
Excellent tour out of the city!
We had a wonderful hike with Erich and the doggies from Sloboda Zvierat. The hike took us through the beautiful and peaceful Bratislava City Forests and we had hours of delightful conversation with Erich and watching the doggies walk, run and explore the forests. Erich was very knowledgeable about the city and Slovakia as a whole and it was great to chat about the history of Slovakia and other topics. Erich also made changes to the hike when he saw that it was necessary, like when the hiking path was icy and slippery. He would check with us often if we are progressing ok. He also extended the hike for us since we had time to continue. The doggies were very happy to be outdoors and their energy level seems limitless! Although they were excited and wanted to keep running all the time, it was actually easy to walk them. They are all well-behaved doggies. The shelter seems to be well-managed. This was the best experience we had in Bratislava and we highly recommend it.
Happy Dog Forest Hike in Bratislava
Amazing
This hike was probably the highlight of my trip to Bratislava! Everything ran smoothly, we were advised the best way of getting to the pick up point, collected and taken to the dog shelter. We chose the dogs we wanted to walk and then set off in the direction of the forest. We had roughly a 3 hour hike which led us through some of the most lovely woodland I’ve seen and stopped for a cup of Slovakian cola and a snack. Thoughout the walk our guide, Erich, was extremely knowledgeable about the area and wildlife. Unluckily for us we had to catch a flight in the afternoon so we were pushed for time but we where advised that if this wasn’t the case then we could have extended our walk. Erich was also a very interesting guy and it was nice to hear some of his stories. He also helped us out with getting to the airport after the hike, he took us to the best bus stop and advised us on change overs. Overall I had a wonderful time and would 100% book again.
Happy Dog Forest Hike in Bratislava
This is an excellent tour
This hike / tour was a ton of fun. The dogs are so happy to be outside and and the scenery is beautiful. Erich knew a lot about the area, though he is a quiet guy, so just make sure to pay attention. He was very nice and always checking to make sure we were alright. Over all it was a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone. There is the choice between big and small dogs, so children can easily participate.

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.
Bites & Sights Bratislava Food Tour
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.
Bratislava Iron Curtain Bike Tour
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.

Private Guided Walking Tour of Bratislava
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.
Bratislava Iron Curtain Bike Tour
Fascinating insights into modern Slovakia
Erich gave me a really interesting tour of Bratislava! He shared some insights with me about the history of the city, how it developed under Soviet rule and how that has shaped the city today. Lots of great views and insider knowledge on old buildings around the city. Thanks Erich!
Off the Beaten Track Bratislava Walking Tour
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!

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.

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.

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).
