We did a private tour with highlights of Slovakia and visits to villages where my great-grandparents came from. I was impressed with the extent of research Juri did into my family's geneology to find the towns, churches, and gravesites of my ancestors. When we visited these towns, we were warmly welcomed by a town official and priest who helped us understand the history of my family's origins. I was blown away! Our tour guide for this trip, Tomas, was very personable, extremely knowledgeable, and an absolute pleasure to travel with. He was a very competent and reliable driver, knew a great deal about all the historic sites we visited, and made our trip go smoothly. I wish I could have spent more time with him traveling about the country. I plan to go back to see the villages of the other side of my family and delve deeper into the countries' history and, when I do, will request him again. Thanks guys!!
