Our favorite tour of our entire stay in Slovenia! Our guide Jascha was outstanding and went out of his way to show us the best spots in and around Triglav National Park. Amazing waterfalls, views of the mountains, and stunning lakes. Highlights: Vintgar Gorge, Jasna Lake, and Pericnik waterfall. Definitely worth a visit! Tip: If you are staying in Ljubljana, ask your guide to let you out at Lake Bled end of the day to grab the last boat to the island on the lake - we got to experience it in peace and quiet and at sunset. Then, take a bus back into the capital for only a few bucks.

We had an amazing day! We really enjoyed the nature and the scenery. The trip was jam-packed with beautiful places -- if you only have time to do one excursion from Ljubljana, I highly recommend this one. Jaša was an amazing tour guide (and driver)! We learned so much on the trip and had a lovely time. The hikes were really awesome, and we had enough time to go for a dip in lake Bohinj -- which was our highlight of the day.

I had such an incredible day at Lake Bled- I highly recommend this trip, it was a highlight of my trip and something I’ll never forget. The service was amazing with so much knowledge of the town. The car was very comfortable. Definitely book this tour if you’re planning on going to Lake Bled.

It was the most amazing tour i have ever been to. The driver and tour leader was super informative and very down to earth and helpful. Sry forgot his name ( ski instructor) Our day was full to the brim and i would highly recommend this tour to anyone fit for walking .
