“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 via mobile

Guides like Dominika are the reason why the free Tour is better than the expansive so-called professional tours. She did a great job and I would recommend the tour to every visitor.

“Brilliant tour”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 via mobile

Having never been on a free tour before I wasn't exactly sure what to expect. However, the tour guide was extremely professional, charming, and gave the group a fantastic crash course on the history of Bratislava. Though there is quite a bit you miss, owing to the time restraints, you cover a great deal in just 2 hours. Would recommend.

“Interesting Bratislava!”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 via mobile

Let me just start with Andy, our tour guide. She was awesome and charismatic and I'm glad we got her! This tour is great and it takes you through all the big (and beautiful) sites in bratislava. We even got to go into a church which you rarely get to do on the walking tours. Another thing I liked about this was that we learned some phrases, about food, customs, good restaurants, bars, and advice on what to do . It was not only historical but included good advice from locals. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to get an overview of the city. Also, you get lots of time to stop and take photos!

“Amazing Walking Tour!!!”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

This was is uch a great walking tour of Bratislava! A great mix of history and culture, without being boring. A good overview of the whole city, old and new parts, as well as the story behind them. Lucia was such a great tour guide!! She explained everything in a fun way and made the tour enjoyable. Any question asked she was able to answer. She was friendly, entertaining, and well informed on Slovakian culture and history.

“Fun way to add to your knowledge of city”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

Having spent the previous day looking round the city, we thought it would be good to get a bit more local history to fill in the gaps between what we had been able to read in our guide book and on information plaques. This tour certainly did this.

The tour starts in one of the main squares and it's very easy to find - big orange signs! It started at 4pm and we had 25 in our group. The tour took in lots of locations that we had already seen, giving us extra information, and also a few that we hadn't. It lasted for about 2 hours and 15 minutes - make sure that you are wearing comfortable shoes and dress for the weather.

Andy was loud, clear and easy to understand. She was fun, interesting and informative, willing to take questions throughout.

The tour is free, pay what you think it's worth, we certainly thought it was worth paying for.
