Beautiful experience in a fairytale place! Our guide Dejan was very professional and helpful, making us discover the wonders of Lake Bled and the treasures of Ljubljana. He also advised us where to eat a great Kremšnita and a great Goulasch. Finally, we also found time to take a stroll in the town of Radovljica, which we loved very much. In short, Slovenia has just exceeded our expectations! Super recommended!

Our sympathetic and knowledgeable guide Anton made the trip an amazing experience. The scenery around Lake Bled and that you picked us up at the hotel and brought us back. What a service. That day was the absolute highlight of the trip.
