What a great experience!! Tine (Martin) was an amazing guide - he drove through the places with such ease, calm and awesome commentary. He made sure all our questions are answered and we have the best experience. The day was well planned. While the entry tickets are not included and have to be bought directly at the ticket office, there was enough time to explore all the four locations. Tip - though there is nothing major to explore in the Bled castle, the view from is absolutely breathtaking especially at sunset! The transport was very comfortable as well. Highly recommend this trip!

The trip was amazing. The driver was very careful, helpful and gave us lots of information during the trip about the history of Croatia so that we can understand the country and Croatian culture. While in Slovenia we had a guided tour of Ljubljana. The guide was excellent and also helped us choose where to eat traditionally according to our taste. Finally the trip to Lake Bled was magical. I totally recommend the whole experience.
