About
Come and join us for an easy commented hiking tour following the footsteps of the forest people Huncokárs - a German speaking community that lived on both sides of the Little Carpathians since 18th century. You will learn why they came here, how did they live, what they believed in and what were they engaged in. The walk takes place in the forest area of Zochova Chata – most popular recreation spot of the Little Carpathians. You will learn some interesting fact and here hear some captivating stories while enjoying the walk and easy hike in the beautiful forest. The circuit is about 9 km long and takes about 2.5-3 hours. In case you choose climing the outlook tower, the tour will take 4 hours. The terrain is easy, mainly in the forest road as well as asphalt and some muddy parts. The tour is also suitable for children and dogs. We will start & end at the same place.

      Spectacular Ceramics
      This was an interesting and educational tour. One sees artisans sculpting, painting, and baking the handmade pieces. Martina was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic… a 10 star tour guide. She even took me to a small local shop to buy a postcard for my collection. However, be advised that ‘transportation provided’ means within Modra. A taxi or train/tram is needed to get to Modra from Bratislava.

      Excellent tour, lovely guide
      This was a wonderful tour. You can see all the stages in the production process and even get to try throwing a pot yourself. Now that was fun! Everyone at the factory was friendly and welcoming, and Martina, the guide, went above and beyond the call of duty. She not only took me on a wonderful tour but picked me up at the train station and gave a (delicious!) local recommendation for lunch afterwards. I cannot possibly recommend this tour more, especially for solo travellers. So many experiences turn out to be "minimum 2 participants" or prohibitively expensive. This was fun, interesting and a morning well-spent. One other point is that it's a simple, short, cheap and comfortable train ride from Bratislava.

      Our fav experience in Slovakia
      What an awesome morning out!!! Martina was so accommodating, the actual location does not normally do tours on a Saturday but as they were having a sale were ok for us to come! Martina met us outside the factory and guided us in, then gave us the ins and outs of Modra's extensive history in Ceramics. She then introduced us to the master Potter who was happy to guide us in our first time every attempting to mould clay (patience was his forte)! Martina made the whole experience fun and casual and we must say it was our highlite for our time in Bratislava!

      Tour of Sv Jur
      Absolutely fantastic evening in the town of Sv Jur. Our guide, Martina, was very knowledgeable, organised, and funny. She has taken us to some most beautiful wine cellars in the town and introduced us to their enthusiastic young owners. Thank you so much!

      Cosy little town Sväty with an excellent guide
      I convinced my colleagues from Vienna to visit Slovakia and wanted to show them more than just Bratislava. So we took the train from Bratislava and joined Martina for the evening tour in Sväty Jur. It was rather fresh outside but with Martina and her endless stories we enjoyed the evening a lot. Thank you very much for the memorable trip

      Best entertainment ever!
      Great sense of humor, passion in storytelling! The best guided tour I have ever had. Over one hour of laughter while hearing about Bratislava's monuments. Bratyslava is so interesting thanks to you, Martina. I'm looking forward to the full moon tour, your own "product"!

      We booked a winery tour via Modra Tours and Martina! It was so nice and lovely visit to Modra and Martina was excellent guide. We went to vinery Fiala and after that Martina took us to the church tower and told us little bit about the history of Modra. We got in advanve the correct bus route and where to go to the bus, everything was so well organized and Martina even send a message the day of the trip to make sure everything was okay. We will definitely come again! Love Bratislava and Modra!!

      A Winderful Winter Walk in the Small Carpathians
      Martina had given this wonderful guided walk the previous week in Slovak; this time she entertained us in English, providing a fascinating insight into the community of German woodcutters who lived there up in the hills for over a hundred years. It was a fantastic experience and I am looking forward to my next outing with Modra Tours!

      Modra Tours is the BEST way to experience Modra!
      Martina is the most knowledgeable, kind, and FUN tour guide around! She not only understands all of Modra's history, but she is able to present the information in an exciting way, making you want to learn more and more. Her tours are amazing and I highly recommend doing one if you in in Modra, or take the short trip from Bratislava to come and visit!

    This is an excellent tour guide - funny, knowledgable, and dynamic. I enjoyed our walk in beautiful Slovak woods while chatting about the Slovak history and culture. Glass of excellent wine out under the night sky was a very welcome and pleasant end of the tour. I will never forget it!

    Taking tours with Martina absolutely made my visit to Modra the best. I was traveling solo on this trip, so was very happy to find that Modra has an excellent English-speaking guide (she also speaks German, and a bit of Spanish, too, I think). One afternoon, Martina took me on a hike in the Small Carpathian hills outside Modra, amongst the German woodcutters' cottages and surrounding forest. Besides being a local, Martina also has really studied history of the region and is therefore very knowledgeable. On another day, Martina took me up to the top of the town hall tower to see the view and learn more about the history of Modra. (If you go up when the bells chime, you will get a noisy and beautiful bonus!) I also opted for a wine tasting tour with her which did not disappoint! The wines of this region are spectacular and tasting them with someone who understands the wines and even knows some of the makers, was very special. Martina is a friendly and excellent guide who I would highly recommend to anyone coming to this region of Slovakia!
