Our team

Our guides are experts with long-term experience in the country where they live and which they know very well. In our team we also have mountain guides – UIAGM members, graduates of Slovak and foreign universities majoring in history and foreign languages, experienced authors of hiking and walking tours, but first of all they are all nice and pleasant people. They will tell you not just about the history but will also give you advice where to have a good meal, where you can have a nice cup of coffee, which beer is great, which confectioner’s is good, and will also tattle about what kind of people the Slovaks are and how they live.
