Ljubljana is often called a European jewel or described as a small blend of Prague and Amsterdam. It is a 'town with a soul', as visitors often comment.

On this private tour you will stroll along medieval streets, admire an interesting blend of different architectural styles, 'see' and 'be seen' on several famous promenades along the river, discover some of the Ljubljana’s hidden monuments, relax in the city’s greenery, and hear stories and fairytales that connect the present and the past.

You will see all the major sights in Ljubljana including the main square with the Prešeren monument, Franciscan Church and Three Bridges, Congress Square (Park of the Star), the National University Library, Križanke Monastery, the New Square, the Cobbler's Bridge, the Old Square (the oldest street), the romantic river promenade, the Municipality Square, St. Nicholas Cathedral, the famous Open Air Market, Butcher's Bridge, and Dragon Bridge.

Bled is often mentioned as the pearl of the Slovenian Alpine region with its emerald-green waters, picture perfect postcard church on the island, a medieval castle on the rocky cliff and some of the highest peaks of the Slovenian Alps in the background. Lake Bled is a place you should not miss. Take a short walk along the lake shore as you witness the beauty of the surrounding mountains reflecting on the lake surface. Throughout the seasons, you will enjoy the peace of the lake and fresh air. Perched atop a steep cliff more than 100 meters above the lake, Bled Castle is how most people imagine a medieval fortress to be, with towers, ramparts, moats and a terrace offering magnificent views. The castle houses a unique treasure - a reconstructed Gutenberg's wooden printing press on which the master printer will demonstrate old printing techniques using handmade paper. Take the pletna boat to the lake island from the shore. The tiny, tear-shaped island beckons from the shore and the ride with the pletna boat will be a real thrill. Upon returning from the island, you will probably be tired. Stop at the local patisserie and taste Bled’s famous cream cake – kremšnita. Since the last 60 years, this patisserie has sold as many as 12 million cream cakes.

Toda la actividad nos encantó, tanto el castillo como las cuevas nos parecieron alucinantes. Luego tuvimos tiempo para almorzar y recorrer la capital de Eslovenia (Liubliana), vale la pena verla. La guía, Tania, resultó increíble, llegó puntual, estuvo todo el día a nuestra disposición, amable, amorosa, contestando cada una de nuestras preguntas e incluso asesorándonos con algunas cuestiones que debíamos resolver para nuestro regreso. Actividad totalmente recomendable.
