Nina our guide and driver was excellent - she was extremely knowledgeable, ran a great tour and we had plenty of our own time explore. We previously booked a different tour as we were worried about getting back in time for a flight and the company offered us this longer tour where we saw a lot more, and then dropped us to the airport on the way back which was extremely kind. All in all super helpful, great company and Nina made it a great day - so much to see, highly recommend.

This half day excursion provided excellent value for money. It included all the highlights of Lake Bled but was conducted at a well judged pace so that it never felt rushed. Our guide was outstanding. His local knowledge, delivered in a lively and interesting manner, was excellent and he was able to answer any questions posed by the group ensuring that everyone felt included. A well organised and very enjoyable trip to a stunning location.

Nina was a very knowledgeable and fun guide! The tour left enough time for us to explore the island, castle and promenade by ourselves, perfect foto ops and nice recommendations for food. We were so lucky to go between Christmas and New Year's, so we caught some Christmas Markets and special events as well. Can wholeheartedly recommend!

A wonderful experience

Convenient pickup time and place; easy going and very busy excursion with everything perfectly timed by our guide, Jan. Breathtakingly stunning natural history and culture. Just the right temperature for swimming Bellevue cafe great for views and Krem pite!

This tour is perfect if you don't have time for a full day excursion and still want to explore the sights outside of Ljubljana. The guide was really nice, and all the sights were lovely and well time. Definitely recommend it!
