Private Bratislava Half-Day Trip from Vienna

(7 Reviews)
Duration:   06h 00 min


Bratislava and Vienna are called the twin-cities because they are so close to each other. If you only have limited time but want to visit one of the former communist capitals in eastern Europe this is the right tour for you!

With a friendly English-speaking Driver you depart from your hotel in Vienna in a private minivan. Heading to the Slovakian border you traverse the countryside of Lower Austria, with its picturesque vineyards and windmills.

Upon your arrival in Bratislava you will be joined by a local expert guide who takes you on a comprehensive private city tour covering the most important sights. First you pay a visit to the newly-restored Bratislava Castle. Towering over the Danube river it is the city’s emblem and offers postcard-views of Bratislava. Next to the castle you also see the parliament of Slovakia.

Afterwards you visit the lively old town below the castle. Your guide shows you the highlights, including Michael’s Gate, the Slovak national theatre, the Academia Istropolitana, the old Town Hall and of course the cathedral of St. Martin. You also see the baroque Palffy palace, where Mozart performed at the age of six, as well as the de Pauli’s palace. Franz Liszt gave his break-through concert there when he was only nine years old.

After the walking tour you can spend a couple of hours in the old town, for lunch and shopping. In the early afternoon your driver will take you to Vienna and back to your hotel.

Enjoy the exclusive service and the personal atmosphere of this private tour: Your knowledgeable guide is ready to respond to (almost) your every request and requirement. He adapts the t

Great half day trip to Bratislava
Nice and neat! Our driver Mr. Feli was full of smiles and a wonderful driver. The half day trip for Bratislava was just nice, bear in mind that there is less to see compared to Vienna so 6 hours including travel time is okay. Our local guide Robert who joined us once we reached Bratislava was good too, he shared with us the colorful history of the country and walked us around the city covering major landmarks. All in all it was good to make this trip, now we haven’t another country under our belt!

Private tour Bratislava
Vienna A La Carte was great! The driver was courteous, safe and friendly. Traveling with my parents and young child, they made sure the trip was interesting for all of us. We learned a great deal, saw the city and enjoyed a nice lunch before heading back. The guide was excellent, knowledgeable and entertaining. If you want a nice day trip to Bratislava, this is it!

Traveling off season is great, small crowds..
Traveling off season is great, small crowds and few crying babies. One disadvantage is many of the tours are not available. We were lucky, and happy, to book this private trip to Bratislava from Vienna. A little pricy but when the E Class Mercedes rather than a tour bus shows up at your hotel and comfortably whisks you off to Bratislava you begin to forget the price. We met up with Jiri in Bratislava. He is part of a local tour company, Authentic Slovakia. The one disappointment was, if you take the Authentic Slovakia tour locally you go by bicycle obviously not in the winter or a vintage '60's Skoda car. We experienced the latter in Poland during a Communist tour using a vintage East German Trabant which was rough and bouncy but made the tour even more realistic for the period. The local riding in the Mercedes and walking tour was excellent hitting the high points of the citys history in about 4 hours. We did not know the long and interesting history of the city and this was a great way to get it. We stopped by a local diner for lunch, one where the locals eat, and got a taste of local food and some very good craft beer. If you are in Vienna and short on time or just want to be pampered book this tour. If you have some time take the train to Bratislava and take the local tour with the bike or car.
