Amazing !!!!!! 5 stars ++++ We first went to the Vintgar Gorge for about 1h30, that was a beautiful landscape. Then we climbed our way up to the Bled castle with an astouding point of view (and great Bled cake). Then we had the choice between a boat trip to the Bled island or a hike around the lakeshore (we did the last one and it was gorgeous). Then we drove to Bohinj lake where we could go for a swim, it was so peaceful! And then we went to a cute médiéval village named Skojka Gora and our guide told us the whole story about it. Our guide was very useful and told us many many stories about the country. Thanks a lot again!!! Would definitely recommand +++

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!

Super day seeing Lake Bled and other sights.highly recommend this trip. We could never have beaten the crowds and made the most of our time without such an experienced guide. The trip was personalised and suited the needs and interests of the guests on board. A brilliant experience.

Beautiful activity. The e-bike is very solid and reliable, Vintgar gorge astonishing. The typical Bled cream cake delicious. Staff very nice and supportive. I couldn’t ask for more. Well done, guys!

Amazing bikes, kind host who gave us thorough, clear instructions and to top it all, beatiful scenery. The complementary cake was delicious too.
