We've just returned from one of our best holidays ever!
We were met at Vienna airport by Tomas whose friendliness immediately made us feel welcome. For the next six days we had a wonderful time. Tomas quickly found out how we like to travel and fitted in with that. He understood that coming from the other side of the world (30 hours travel!!), we wanted to see as much as we possibly could. So he made sure this happened, often going out of his way and spending extra time with us. We never felt rushed but he helped us to see an amazing number and variety of places. Tomas was really good at judging when we were ready to move on. When very wet weather meant we had to change our plans, he came up with several alternatives and helped us decide on the best one. Tomas is a great ambassador for Slovakia and provided us with lots of information as we traveled through the countryside and when visiting each place. He also told us about life in Slovakia and tried to teach us some Slovak (not very successfully but that was our fault not his!).
The highlights for us were the scenery, the wooden churches and the old town centres.
All the arrangements went smoothly and we enjoyed the variety of hotels, especially the unusual ones. The breakfasts were varied and set us up for our busy days. We enjoyed trying traditional Slovak dishes recommended by Tomas.
Overall, we had a fabulous time with Tomas and appreciated Juraj's planning and organisation. We would highly recommend to anyone as they are so good at finding out what you want to see and do, and making sure it all happens.
