Good tour and made our party want to explore all parts of this beautiful country after this quick taste of what it has to offer. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable about his country. Enjoyable day. Only hiccup was Get Your Guide communication surrounding pick-up point. When booking website said our hotel was out of the pickup zone, so chose a museum front within the zone. Received an email requesting address of our hotel but no response as to if that would be pickup point or the museum. We went to museum- guide went to hotel. After a phone call, all was sorted out but felt bad to delay the other tour members. Would recommend tour.

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!

Highly recommend! Very personalized and friendly service. We had a multi lingual group of people on our tour, it was no problem at all since our guide spoke various languages.
