About
I am a local patriot, former traveller, history fan, tourism and hiking addict, wine and yoga enthusiast. Therefore I offer you all kinds of adventures in the Small Carpathian Region - the place I know, live & love. Whether you like history, hiking, wine, good coffee or want to taste local delicatessen- I have a tour for you. During the day, evening or night I can guide you in the forest, in the city, on the winery tour or even on the candlelight cemetery tour. Did you know that Small Carpathian Region is the biggest wine region in Slovakia? Why Modra is called "blue"? Have you ever heard of Huncokars- the forest people? Why is our cemetery considered to be third national cemetery? Have you ever heard of codifier of the Slovak language - Ľ. Štúr? It all happens in Modra only 25 km away from the Bratislava. Bus drive takes 1 hour but the train is only 20 minutes form the main train station, calling at Šenkvice where can I pick you up. My secret tip is the picturesque town of Sv. Jur!
Modra, Slovakia

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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

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!!

Dear Sini, thank you so much for this excellent review and thank you for visiting our small cosy town! It was brave from you that you climb also our city tower in the heat of 34 °C we had that day. Next time you come you must try "colourful wine tasting". Have a great summer!

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!
