      Amazing tour by Presporacik
      Beautiful experience and many interesting facts about Bratislava were said, we’ve seen all the crucial monuments along with a bubbly, pleasant personality of the driver on top! We definitely recommend the trip for a very reasonable price! See you next time in Bratislava!

      Bratislava on the go
      It’s a lovely and well organized tour around Bratislava. All is for your convenience including the audio guide in different languages. The best way to get acquainted with the city and spot the places you would like to come back to. Highly recommend for all occasions - solo, family, friends or even business trips. I would really love to hop on again 🙂

      A must do when in the City
      Excellent tour around the city . Stops at Slavin and the castle give an overview and you can revisit them in more depth later . Driver very polite and helpful. Commentary good and on time either tour , which is not always the case . Comfortable vehicle with blankets provided. All in all would thoroughly recommend

      Convenient / Accessible Tours with Friendly Staff!
      This tour is exactly as described. The open sided bus is great for those desiring a bit of space / ventilation. The driver provided headphones (new) that plugged into the seat, I was then able to listen along to an audiotour while the driver stopped at each major point of interest. I ended up on a couple tours that day, and it was a great way to spend the morning!

      Nice ride but confusing route did not follow map route
      OK overview and nice to ride around. Route did not follow map provided though , so it was discombobulated and confusing. Walking tour we did the next day was incredibly better.

      Superb! Go on this!
      Really good value. Whole city is taken in by the panoramic tour. Range of sights and views. 100% recommend. Really good staff who spoke really good English and the lad who explained the tour in every European language should get a medal!

      Well planned tour
      Very good tour well planned. The staff on the ground were welcoming. Unfortunately driver was unfriendly to the point of rudeness, making no effort to engage with any of the passengers not even to say hello.

      Worth the money…debatable?
      The tour gave a good overview of the area……however whether it was worth €20pp is debatable. It lasts 95 mins…with 2 stops Slavín World war memorial 15 mins…ample time…20 min stop at the Castle, more than ample… Apart from the Castle & Slavín War memorial everything else we managed to cover easily on foot the following day, which allowed more time for better photo opportunities. The commentary provided on individual headphones (hygienically sealed) worked well & provided an insight into Bratislavas’ history. Little interaction with the driver as not necessary, however all staff we encountered were pleasant & friendly. In summary, if you have mobility issues or short on time this may be for you…

    Great tour company!

    We took the longer "Panoramic" tour which took us all around the city, castle, a few great viewpoints, and other historic areas.

    Headphones were supplied which gave us access to the tour in 20 or so different languages.

    We listened to the English tour, which was very well done.

    Within this short tour you see and hear about a lot of the history of Bratislava city centre, visiting many sites within a short distance and get a feel for the city and its history. It was nice to see the old buildings which are well preserved and was like going back in time. It was good to go around afterwards to walk through the old city and know a bit more as I walked around the streets.
    They could possibly stop at the town square for 5 mins for people to take photos.

    Absolutely excellent!

    Comfortable, concise, and very reasonably priced.

    The people in charge patiently explained the different tours and prices. The 2-hour panoramic + old town for 30€ per person was a bargain, IMHO.

    The two stops were perfectly timed, and the recorded guide was interesting and knowledgeable.

    We did the tour last Friday. The whole tour from start to finish was excellent. The driver was excellent as well giving us time to take photos at various points. The stops at Slavin and the castle were very good. The agent at the start, Renate was also excellent with great knowledge. She was very funny and helpful. All in all great value for money.

    We know Bratislava quite well - my wife went to university here - but this was a very comprehensive itinerary that took us to places we hadn’t seen before. A leisurely pace gives time to follow the comprehensive sound track. A very good way to see the old part of the city and 35 minutes is just right. Well recommended.

    Took a day trip to Bratislava from Budapest. If you have only a day or maybe more, then getting on the Old Town touring bus is a great way to see all of the top spots Bratislava has to offer. We did the panoramic tour for 95 minutes and this was great. The bus stops at two location for 15 to 20 minutes to spend some time at the sites.

    Fantastic Tour! We did this tour yesterday morning. It was already a hot day. The roof of the vehicle was open, but there's a roof if the weather isn't as good. The tour is done in many languages, by earphones. You get to see the most important parts of the old town, with an explanation. You learn more about the area, than you would if you were just walking around

    The trolly bus was on my to do list going to Bratislava. We took it down to old Town from the castle. The 6 kids were excited. They told us to get off and they we're waiting for a group. Eventually they let us on and we could hear an audio guide. Now to get the tolly bus back to the castle was a problem no one understood our tickets coz they hadn't been stamped. After a long time and many phone calls later we were able to get on the bus for an additional fee but since it was apparently a discounted fee the driver told us we couldn't listen to the audio guide. Which really bothered me on the way up because we took a different route to the castle and saw many different places. I don't know why he did that. Also it only stops at the castle for 20 mins so you can't really go inside. We didn't do the old town tour but hopefully that's better than this!

    We were a group of 7 (3 adults, 3 children from 4 to 12). The tour was nice (as expected) and at a good value. I was sitting with my 4 year old daughter right behind the driver.

    As it was very sunny and hot, we took one of the multicolour umbrellas available in the bus for sun protection. My daughter was holding it and apparently the brim of the umbrella was slightly banging against the separation window (between our row and the driver), which I wasn't aware of.

    Instead of asking us to be careful because of the disturbance, the driver stopped the trolley, grabbed the umbrella and pulled it without warning from my daughter's hands. She didn't want to let go and he pulled harder. And that made her upset and she started to cry.

    This behaviour of the trolley driver is totally unacceptable and ruined the charm of the whole ride. Therefore the experience was overall bad.
