Vasja is an absolutely amazing tour guide! A hidden talent of his is his amazing voice! He can sing! On the journey in the car we all sang songs the entire way and it made the trip the most amazing one i have had so far! Had amazing tour fellows and Vasja was the icing on the cake! Lake bled tour was amazing and Vasja being the tour guide and his songs made the trip one of the most unforgettable trips of my life! I held Oscar wards at the end and gifted participants with cereal bars, packets of nuts Thank you so much Vasja!

We (a group of 4 girls) were genuinely surprised how much we enjoyed this activity. The transfer to the river was well-planned, the scenery was absolutely stunning and our guide made all the difference. (His name is Mitja if I'm not mistaken) His English was super, knew a lot about our surroundings and made the whole tour more enjoyable. The tour was organised, the swimming suits and other stuff were clean and taken care of.

Really great tour! Eva was very knowledgable and kept us all on schedule, and recommended a viewpoint at lake bled instead of the castle, which was stunning. The gorge was really beautiful! Would recommended, great way to see something outside Ljubljana

This was a wonderful experience to see many places within Slovenia. The extras make for a good experience but are not needed the tour alongside the wonderful tour guide and his passion for Slovenia was money well spent.

The guide let us be the owners of our experience despite the other travelers choices
