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.

Had an excellent tour with Slavo in the 1985 Skoda. He was a great tour guide speaking very good English with a great knowledge of the area’s history. He gave us a very vivid insight into the controversy and struggle people experienced under Soviet control and in memorialising it’s legacy today. It was clear this wasn’t just a job for Slavo but a passion project from personal experience. The drinks bottles and old currency he had collected added to his story of the region’s history and culture. We had mentioned we were particularly interested in the abandoned nuclear bunker and magnesite factory so Slavo detoured out of his way to show us these. The tour overran by an hour and a half but there was no sense of urgency, only making sure we’d had the full experience. There’s no way we could have seen a fraction of this stuff on our own during our short visit, and it helped us understand the city from a local’s perspective rather than as an outsider. So much more interesting than the usual tourist attractions. We saw the area warts and all including the gypsy slum which was an eye opener. We were allowed to drive the Skoda around a 1970s steelworks estate which you’d never get to do on a more official tour. The tour finished off in a beer garden with recommended beer and ice cream all purchased for us by Slavo, with a great presentation of some historical images of the places in the tour. Was completely worth it and well-recommended if you want to learn about Košice through an authentic and raw lens and venture off of the beaten track!

Slavo was a delightful guide. We didn’t know much about Kosice history, especially communist. It was fascinating. We saw sights we never would have seen on our own and tried local snacks. The Skoda sets the perfect mood and was icing on the cake.

This was the best thing we did in Košice. Extremely interesting and good fun. It really adds a lot to staying in this wonderful city to learn about all the history and goings on. Slavo is a great guide and excellent company. If you get a chance 100% recommend doing this, it is well worth it.

Slavo was a very good guide, showing us a lot to understand Kosice and its surroundings in a broader sense than what you do, just seeing the old town. A great combination of cultural, historical, sociological and political aspects. Highly recommendable if you enjoy exploring!

Slavo gave us an amazing tour, very informative and taking us to see some of the more hidden sights of the city. His English is superb and he has a wealth of historical and social knowledge of the area. It was well worth the money and I would advise anyone visiting the city to take the time to see the city through Slavo's eyes. Brilliant.

Had a brilliant day- everything as advertised plus much more. If you want to learn about the city’s past this trip is a must. We feel we now know so much more about Kosice. The end of a great weekend!

We had an excellent time today with Slavo, his knowledge of the history made him a great guide and enabled us to understand better the communist past of Kosice. His Skoda is fabulous and we had great fun driving it !
We definitely recommend this tour ten times over.
Thank you so much Slavo !

Difficult to add to what others have already said. If you want to learn more about Kosice and the history of Slovakia then this is the way to do it. Slavo is an amazing tour guide and the time spent with him was fun and informative. His passion for his country and his region really comes across and it was a great way to get off the beaten track and see everything from Street art to the challenges faced at Lunik 9. Thanks Slavo we had an amazing day.

Slavo is very gentle and soft spoken, he loves his city and surely his cars.
Unfortunately the old skuda was out of
service, but the smurff blue one was as charming and fun.
If you find yourself in Kosice and you are into off the beaten path tours, then this is definitely the tour for you.

it was a great experiance. we went for a tour with Slavo and had a feeling like we were joing a long term friend showing us his hometown. he was even willing to extend the planned route to show us places he thouht, based on our conversation, we would like. it was a great, personal, take on the history of Kosice, but we learned a lot about the history of Slovakia. and it was all with Slavo's great sence of humor :-)
