From Ljubljana: Slovenia in One Day Tour

1. From Ljubljana: Slovenia in One Day Tour

You will start your small-group tour with a pickup from your central Ljubljana hotel, and depart for Lake Bled in an air-conditioned minivan. On the 1-hour journey, you can admire rural Slovenia and listen as your guide describes the glacier-formed lake and the legends that surround Bled Island, the church-topped islet in its center. On arrival, you can drink in the views of the lake and towering mountains, and gaze up at medieval Bled Castle, the fortress perched high on a cliff above the water. Then, you will ride a two-oared pletna to the island and enjoy free time to explore, visit the Church of the Assumption of Mary or sample some scrumptious potica at the island cafe. Next, you will be driven up to Bled Castle and can delve inside the red-turreted fortress. Absorb the bird's-eye views of the lakes from the walls and visit the museum to chart the castle’s story from its roots in the 11th century. You will then return to the lakeside for free time to walk around, and if you wish, sample a local specialty, kremšnita vanilla cream cake. Then, after a break for lunch, travel onward to your next stop, Predjama Castle. You can marvel at this remarkable cliffside castle and hear how it was extended through the centuries after being built in 1202. Then, you can choose either to explore its stairways and chambers on your own, or with a guide. Lastly, you will continue to nearby Postojna Cave, Slovenia’s most-visited tourist attraction. Ride the mini-train into the depths of this subterranean network and then follow a guide through its eerie caverns. Ogle the bizarre stalactites, stalagmites, and rock formations and hear tales of how the caves were created and the rare amphibians that live in its underground rivers — the blind salamanders known as 'human fish.' Then, return to your minivan and end your tour in Ljubljana, with a drop-off at your hotel.

We had a private tour with our guide as there were no other guests that day and we felt privileged. We had a wonderfull experiance, our guide Sanda was very kind, informative and helpfull, even spoke our native language which we didn't expect.. and the route and attractions were very interesting, they exceeded our expectations in every way. And we had enough time to enjoy at each site. We would higly recommend this tour to everyone visiting Slovenia. At the end of the tour we even managed to visit the Opera house in Ljubljana and attend the opera that evening.. Very romantic day from the beginning till the end.

Nina was a great guide. She answered all our questions and knew what she was talking about. She had some great stories in addition to the facts of each place. We couldn’t have been happier.

It was a long day, but it was a comfortable day. The van was new and very spacious, and Nina was an excellent guide.

Extremely knowledgeable, friendly and professional tour guide. I highly recommend.

Nina has been a charming guide, all very well. I totally recommend this excursion
