The trip was phenomenal! We enjoyed every bit of it! Our helpful guide, Urban, showed us around with unwavering patience and kindness and enthusiasm. What we liked the most about the trip was that even though it was a pre-planned trip, our guide gave us several options! This felt like a tailor-made trip and allowed us to explore the Slovenian culture and hear all about it from a Lake Bled local! We highly recommend this experience! We had a fantastic day!

Wonderful tour. Our guide was Val and she was very knowledgeable about every facet of the area and answered all our questions. Her English was great and she had a wonderful sense of humor. The pace of the tour was perfect and we really felt we gained an understanding of the area. Like this tour so much that we booked another through the same company for the next day.
