    Eine sehr schöne Tour in das Hinterland der slowenischen Adriaküste! Corona-bedingt waren wir die einzigen beiden Teilnehmer der Tour, so dass der Ausflug etwas beinahe Familiäres hatte, zumal unser Guide Grega fast perfekt deutsch sprach und uns viele Informationen über Land und Leute vermittelte. Bei der Wein- und Speisenverkostung in einer kleinen Weinkellerei erlebten wir echte slowenische Gastfreundschaft . Eine rundum gelungene Tour, die wir jederzeit wieder machen würden.
