Hi Amanda,

there are similar tours in a "bus" as you mention, but much more cooler :) See http://www.tour4u.sk/en/

From Bratislava you can easily visit Vienna as a one day tour - it is really close. However, Prague and Budapest are a bit further, but still managable.

And do not worry to use Euro in Bratislava, as it is an official currency ;)

Regards
