Excellent, well-informing and interesting tour. Would recommend to everyone! Our tour guide Martin knew the history very well and his personal stories about the communist era made the experience even better.

Our guide, Vasko, gave us a warm, wonderful and witty introduction to this beautiful city, and it's not-so-distant past. He was very informative, as we saw most of the sites connected with the city's 45 year experience with socialism. Also check out the 365 free tours for a general introduction to the city (Vasko was also our guide for that one), and their Jewish History Tour.
