Lot of time to wander around the city
, Aug 2022
Bussed to the coach to take an hour to get to Bratislava, then met Max the guide who took us around the city showing us most of the sights for an hour and half then left us to wander around for 6 hours . I went to the catamaran office and changed my ticket from 18:30 to 14:30 for 10 euros
Cute city. Worth a visit. Daytrip from Vienna is best.
, Jul 2022
Our guide was a sweet lady. Having a local guide is a plus. They know their place better (I think). Bratislava is a very cute small town. Beautiful landmaks. A few hours is enough to see most. Good restaurants as well, Love the ride back by boat!
Great Tour
, Jul 2022
Great trip with some logistic issues. The car for hotel pick up was spot on time. Left us a block from the bus-confusing instructions. In Bratislava, when dropped off at what look like a bus intersection, no one was there to meet us. A couple arrived a half hour later-no apology just off we go. We were left by the bus driver in a foreign country alone. Have the Driver call the Guide 15 minutes before arrival. I wasn't doing the walking tour but was given great advice of where to go by the guide. I took a hop on/off cute red bus/cart around Bratislava and even up to the Castle (with a short stop). I then walked to our cruise and got on an earlier cruise (2:30 instead of 6:30) to Vienna. It was spectacular to cruise on the Danube. I loved this tour and I am sure they will straighten these technical issues out.

Start too early in the morning, tour too short, free time too long as not much to see or do. Half day tour at half price more attractive. Catamaran nice but could see nothing stuck in middle seats.

Wish there was more to do
, Jul 2022
Tour was a little dry and boring. So much free time in the city but not too much to do. Recommend going up the UFO tower for sure. Boat ride back was really nice

It was a nice trip. Quite a lot of free time and a great ride back through the Danube on a Catamaran.
