Slavo provides an engaging four hour tour with ample insights into post Socialist Kosice. There is a great deal to talk about and see so I recommend the longer tour. You'll be sure to enjoy the tour with this friendly and engaging Slovakian.

Slavo provided a very interesting and engaging tour experience around the edges of tourist Košice. He skillfully and generously blended local knowledge, humor and insight into a great few hours. The Skoda has its own personality and riding in it was worth it alone.
