This was a wonderful tour. It was the most thorough tour I have ever had. In addition, Peter offered wonderful hospitality and insider access to his city. Peter ensured our comfort and safety throughout the tour, offering food and drinks as our tour proceeded. Peter also shared both general and personal anecdotes related to his city. He answered every question with careful thought and energy. This is a one of a kind tour with a one of a kind person! I recommend this tour for anyone who only has a one day in Bratislava, in order to experience as much of the city as possible in a short amount of time. We learned so much! Thanks so much Peter, we will be sure to be back!
