We have loved this tour to all the participants that met that same day. I think it is the best tour that Roundabout Travel offers for the itinerary and content. The tour guide was the best I've had in Slovenia: Tusi Polonca. He was very close, cheerful and managed to keep the group very excited and united. Thank you very much Tusi!

The tour was very individual as we were only 4 participants. The tour guide Petra spoke German and English very well. She has explained well and has responded to all wishes and restrictions. The 3 cities of Izola, Piran and Koper were pretty and well worth a visit. The organization went well.

It was interesting and a bit disappointing at the caves as we not allowed to take pictures,but rules are rules. The tour guide was fantastic

Great trip, there were only 3 of us and the guide was very knowledgeable. I highly recommend this experience!
