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 tour is brilliant for anyone looking to learn about the city’s recent history. Peter is a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable and friendly, and takes time to answer any questions you have. Being driven round Bratislava in a classic Škoda is a unique experience, and one I would recommend to anyone!

Very interesting tour in a very nice city. Definitely would recommend for someone exploring Bratislava who knows something of the recent history or not. Brano is an excellent, friendly and very knowledgeable guide. The tour takes in some interesting relics of the communist era, describing something of the history and culture of that time, and all in a 1970s Skoda!

Jano was brilliant. A very informative trip, in a vehicle which was nostalgic of the era. Totally recommend. Thanks for the national snacks.

This was probably the best private tour we've ever taken. If you're interested in doing something off the beaten track and if you love old cars, this is the tour for you.
Peter, the tour operator, is very kind, friendly and is extremely knowledgeable about the history of Bratislava and Slovakia. We learned a lot during this tour!
10/10 would recommend you take this tour

Fantastic experience
Our guide Peter took us on a trip through Bratislava history.
It was both interesting and entertaining, with historic facts and personal stories.
We took the extension with the tasting of local delicacies, and all I can say is: don't have lunch, and leave some room for all the snacks and drinks you're gonna try.
On the practical side: we were picked up at our hotel, place and time exactly as agreed.
Top service.
Highly recommend!
