We booked this tour to witness the charm of Vintgar Gorge. Unfortunately, we were 3-4 weeks earlier (late winter/ early spring) before the pathway is opened for the spring/summer season. Nonetheless, our tour guide, Ms Valentina took lots of initiative to show us around other parts of Triglav National Park that was also charming. We started our tour at a small historical village called Softja Loka. Then, headed to Triglav National Park with 400 steps up to Savica Waterfall, beautiful Lake Bohinj with serenity in the surroundings, hearing bird chirping and admiring the picturesque lake side with crystal clear water, etc. Lunch with Slovenian cooking trout fish was simply delicious! Our last destination was Lake Bled where we took the traditional boat rowing to the Island of Lake Bled before ascending the hill with castle where we could enjoy the panoramic view of Lake Bled. Our tour could not be more enjoyable and memorable without our tour guide, Ms Valentina who was simply amazing!
This was the best way to see Lake Bled and it's surrounding areas. We had plenty of time at each location to get to do all the activities you want to do and get the right amount of down time. Our guide, Andrew was incredibly knowledgable, thoughtful and worked so hard to make the day fit what we wanted. I love Roundabouts tour set up so that you get to do exactly what you want to do even if that means other people in your tour are doing something different. The highlight of the day was the traditional meal in Bohnj. It was great getting to know the other people in our small tour group and hearing more from Andrew about Slovenia.
Our guide, Nena was amazing and was so knowledgeable of the places we visited and made recommendations as required. Nena was very safe and a good driver too. She made every effort to accommodate the groups interest and we did not miss out on anything even when we were running a little behind schedule. I would like to commend Nena for doing an outstanding job and so glad we had her as our tour guide. For anyone new to Lubljana this is THE tour to do and worth it as you get to see so much in one day. It's only a small group which makes it easier to do things without having to wait around for people.
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.
Amazing experience! All the stops on this tour are incredible. I like the fact that it mixes the must see sights with some hidden gems! Our tour guide Val was brilliant, she made everything really easy and relaxed and has so much knowledge about Slovenia. I can't recommend highly enough!
