I had an amazing experience with Thomaz. He is a very friendly and nice person. It was such a pleasure to have this your with him. He is such an interesting and knowledgeable person that made this trip very interesting for me. He is also very flexible. I had very long delay with my flight, and I had to arrive much later than the start time of the tour. But he was very understanding. He waited for me almost 3 hours and we still finished the tour on time! I would highly recommend this tour and Thomaz as a tour guide:)

0ur trip was was wonderful. We really enjoyed everything and especially Nina the driver and tour guide. She was a fabulous driver and had so much knowledge about the area and the history of Slovenia. We had an unforgettable trip with Nini and would love to come back in the future! Slovenia is a beautiful country ad Nini gave us enough free time to really relax as well as gain so muck knowledge about the area.

This was an amazing experience! It was really easy to find the right route because we had a great host and she explained everything in details. Loved the Vintgar, it's a magical place. ☺️
