Ester is a heartwarming character, who cared a lot about my interests and questions during the whole tour. She manages to bring facts and personal stories together in a way that is just perfect for a guide. I enjoyed this tour very much and can highly recommend it!

Ester was great - one of the best guides I had so far: fun and extremely knowledgeable. It was easy to see how passionate she is about history and about Kosice. The tour included loads of stuff: history, where to eat, traditions etc. We were lucky enough to also witness a few weddings on our way. Definitely recommend (bring walking shoes and a bottle of water) for those who like this type of tours 🤗
