We had a wonderful energetic and fun group of 16 travelers this September. They were into all things Slovak….music, history, walks into the countryside, and, of course, good Slovak food. We had almost a 100% success rate in reconnecting our travelers with their Slovak families.
Read all about it on page 19 of the Dec. 9 issue of Jednota. You’ll read about tour member Ken Petrus’ lucky discovery in finding his cousins.

We keep our tours small so that you can enjoy all the Slovakia has to offer at your own pace, on a more intimate scale than a larger tour focused on crowded tourist sites and large cities. We’ll explore the cities as well as small towns and the countryside to piece together the unique history and culture that makes Slovakia such a charming blend of old and new.
Whether this is your first trip to Slovakia or you’ve visited before, we’ll make it easy for you to relax and enjoy the picturesque, ever-changing landscapes, and experience the traditions and contemporary culture. Learn traditional arts and crafts. Take a cooking lesson. Travel high in to the mountains by gondola or on foot. Attend an open-air classical or folk concert. Reflect on the architectural and cultural remnants of the Soviet era. Meet the people as they work to make Slovakia a vital part of the European Union.
Because of the small size of the tour group, we can provide excellent individual service before, during and after the tour. We’re here to answer your questions, translate, respond to your special needs, and do our best to tailor the tour to your interests. We’re passionate about Slovakia and love that we always learn and discover something new through your interests.
Please email( firstname.lastname@example.org ) or call (978-544-5144) and let us know what your plans are.
We’re really excited to offer a small group summer heritage tour in 2012:
Two Festivals, One Heritage from Fri. June 29 to Sun. July 8. We’ll visit two of Slovakia’s top folklore festivals on the weekends, the Vychodna Folklore Festival of Dance and Music, and the Detva International Folk Festival. During the week we’ll explore Slovakia’s heartland and heritage. More to come on both festivals.
We knew we were lucky when we looked out our chalet window in the morning and saw the Tatry Mountains towering above us. We had a beautiful, blue sky, clear fall day for our gondola ascent. While most of us explored the summit, Rudy and Peter opted to hike down stopping at the chatas(chalet) for breaks.
