This is a gastronomic tour where you will experience authentic Slovak cuisine while tasting excellent quality local food and drinks at various independent, locally-owned and memorable eating spots. Filled with information about Slovak eating and drinking habits, traditions and history along the way, your local foodie guide will show you the highlights of the Old Town, as well as some places off the beaten track. Our mission is to provide you not only with an experience of local food, but also with a taste of Bratislava itself!
Bratislava takes its beer just as seriously as its more famous neighbor Prague, and a new wave of independent microbreweries and pubs is putting the city on the beer drinker’s map. Our Craft Beer Tour offers a beer experience where you will learn about local brewing and develop your own preferences while tasting and identifying flavors in different beer styles, from crisp golden Pilsner and hoppy bitter India Pale Ale to dry American Stout. The tour gives you an opportunity to taste 12 different Slovak craft beers at 2 - 3 specialized, often hidden craft beer pubs, throughout the back streets of the Old Town. All tasted beers are unfiltered, unpasteurized, and free of chemicals. Most importantly, they are fresh and delicious. Na zdravie!
You've never heard about Slovak wine? Well that's hardly surprising as none is exported and it's all drunk in Slovakia! There are more than 50 different grape varieties planted in six Slovak wine regions, including well-known Central European grapes as well as local varieties you cannot find elsewhere. Some Slovak crisp, fresh rosés and white wines have regularly been highly appreciated in international wine competitions. Our Wine Tasting Tour is a great way to experience and find out more about these wines, in the relaxing atmosphere of a cozy winery found within the city walls. Join the tour and enjoy the taste of 10 carefully selected Slovak wines from regional vintners.
Beer and Food lover? This tour has something for you! Beer is a great match for food because of the complexity of its flavors, its ability to provide refreshment and to interact with many food flavors. Even before a meal, the beer is already doing its work for food pairing as its hops stimulate the appetite. This tour gives you an opportunity to taste 6 different Slovak craft beers, as well as some delicious meals from Slovak cuisine dominated by meat (especially pork), potatoes, dumplings and sauces.
