Great tour, totally worth the money. Ana provided a great feeling of the city, what historical events and decisions made it what is now, shared lots of interesting places (including tasting of local pastry) and answered all of our questions. Don’t expect here a detailed story of every house and every historical figure, but rather sharing a feeling of the city and its people. Definitely recommend.

The tour provides a short visit to Lake Bled and Ljubljana. The time goes by quickly you will want to return. Dean was a very friendly, informative tour guide with local insight and recommendations I highly recommend booking this tour. The pickup point was centralized so give yourself extra time to meet your group. I walked 20 minutes to the centralized location.

Amazing! We loved the local spin. Great personality and authentic look at history. Tasty snack! Loved seeing neighborhoods that were not super touristy.

Excellent & informative tour by a very friendly, cheerful guide who happily answered any questions we had. I would highly recommend

An interesting and informative walk which was great fun
