Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
With just a one-hour drive, you get the opportunity to see the capital of Slovakia. I strongly recommend upgrading to the high-speed catamaran trip back to Vienna on the Danube -- it's an exciting ride that gives you a different perspective on this historic city.

What You Can Expect
Meet your local guide in Bratislava, making your way to the city’s Old Town for a walking tour. Learn the rich history behind the city as you pass top attractions and architectural gems. See Bratislava Castle, dating back to the Stone Age, and Michael’s Gate, the only remaining structure of the city’s medieval fortification.
Continue to the Rococo-style Grassalkovich Palace, an 18th-century social spot for Hungarian aristocracy. Then admire the Primate's Palace, considered one of the most stunning buildings in the city.
Afterward, refuel with lunch (not included) and enjoy some time to explore independently, perusing the Slovak National Theatre or popping into local shops and cafes.
Your day trip will conclude with a smooth drive back to central Vienna. Alternatively, upgrade your ticket to return to Vienna on a river cruise. Hop aboard a high-speed catamaran and enjoy the scenery of the Danube River along the way. Travel through the Danube wetlands and the Donau-Auen National Park before arriving in Vienna.
Bratislava is off of the beaten path in Central Europe, but it's a town full of friendly people and incredibly good food. We enjoyed the boat back on the Danube, as it was full of windows and easy to enjoy the cruise. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. She steered us to all of the good restaurants, and we ate at 3 of them, as the weather was a bit cold and rainy. There is a Habsburg Castle which we didn't visit, but it's an inexpensive and easy trip up to it. I recommend this tour for the interest, the value, the scenery, and the food.
Viera was an excellent guide and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour, even on a rainy cold day. My only suggestion for improvement would be to include the bus ride up to the castle on the tour. My group took the boat ride back to VIenna and it was well worth the extra money.

Bratislava tour was very good i recomend
Excellent tour. The morning is spent with a guide who did a great job of explaining the history of the city to us. After the free lunch which was satisfactory, we had plenty of free time to explore the city on our own. After reading all the comments on here, I opted to take the boat ride back. While it was neat, there were long stretches of it where there was nothing interesting to see at all. If you are on a budget, I recommend just taking the bus back, which is faster anyway.
This was a good time, though the included meal was not at a great place. The guide was excellent and he made a real effort to ensure that we saw Bratislava and understood what we were seeing.
Excellent day trip to Bratislava....confortable coach journey,excellent guide and lovely boat trip back to Vienna,although we were so lucky with weather!! Everything went very smoothly.
1 hour from Vienna. Very quick tour seeing the parts of old toen Bratislava. I would probably do another tor for at least 2 days, but this tour opened my eyes to a beautiful city.
