An excellent trip with an excellent local guide. fresh snow added to the whole experience.
It was a very nice tour, beautiful scenery,amazing views. Tour guide was great and spoke English very well. Took a lot of amazing pictures.
Probably the best tour in Slovenia. You wouldn't want to miss some of the most beautiful landscapes of this small country. Highly recommended.
What a great trip! Couldn't fault it at all. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and his English was flawless. You start with a Pletna ride across to the island of Bled, and spend some time on there. Then you drive around the top of the lake towards the Castle. After a steep walk up the hill at the castle you can have a look around and views out across all of Bled. Then it's down into town for lunch. After lunch we go across to the Savica waterfall - a good 15minute uphill hike to the waterfall amongst beautiful forest. Back from the waterfall there's a final stop in Bohinj, another stunningly beautiful lake. It was a fantastic day, seeing some truly beautiful scenery. You've got to be fairly mobile and fit to take it on - as there are a lot of hills.
Even if a bit physically difficult, I enjoyed this 'nature' time during my stay in Ljubljana.
We were a bit disappointed that although the tour was advertised as including going up Mt.Vogel,we were not taken there. We had also brought this to the guide's attention but she just said it was not included. We did not like this misinformation although we enjoyed the rest of the tour.
Absolutely wonderful. This is a beautiful part of the world and the guide was excellent. A must do for any visitor to Slovenia.
Easy going and informative guide. A small group, so I didn't feel herded around like on some tours, and gave a good chance to get to know fellow travelers. Not too rushed and yet managed to pack a lot in. Absolutely beautiful scenery and very good value.
Great guide and wonderful weather! the guide was very knowledgeable and brought us to the places according to schedule. Just note that lunch isn't included in the tour, but the guide would be able to recommended places to eat with decent prices.
Bled and Bohinj tour was fantastic! We were only a small group and our tour guide was very knowledgeable on not only where we were visiting, but the history of Slovenia. The trip went very smoothly and we really enjoyed ourselves.
The ride from Ljubljana was quiet and uneventful. The driver/tour guide was very nice and quite knowledgeable. He was very considerate of everyone in the group and its varying ability levels. The views and activities were wonderful. It would be challenging to do it all by yourself in a single day. You really get a taste of several areas that you WILL want to return to. I highly recommend it.
This tour was superb. We had a great guide. The places were lovely. This is a good value.
Amazingly Beautiful Countryside
Pre booked online through Viator. Fabulously kind, chatty, knowledgeable Guide, Bart, made our day fun and personable as we were four in a car for the day. Lake Bled is a genuinely beautiful destination. Short ride in the pletna wooden boat to the Church on the Island was great! And the Creme Cake in town was a highlight!! Bohinj was more natural--the steep, uneven walk up to the Waterfall isn't worth the effort. To drive around the countryside was magical. I love Slovenia.
This was a good tour run locally and a very good guide- and good value as it included fees to the castle, pletna ride, lake church and waterfall. The minibus was a bit old and made some interesting noises. We enjoyed the walk up to the spectacular waterfall, but it is up 600 steep but safe steps, and two less confident people turned back and waited at the cafe below.
Very informative tour guide Vladimir. There are no 2 persons on this tour including myself so this was almost a private tour. Very well organized in terms of timing of visit, arrivals, departures, etc.
We really enjoyed going to Lake Bled. It is a magical place. We had a comfortable van and our guide spoke English very well. I would recommend this tour.
One of the happiest days in my life! The guide from Kompas (her name was Lana) was knowledgeable, and she improvised well: due to unforeseen circumstances, at Bohinj we went to an agricultural show/ field day instead, which was also enjoyable. A lot of people in our group were not keen on walking, and hence we only went to 'armchair' type of locations, but that was fine too.
Our bus died and we spent nearly two hours on the side of the road waiting for a replacement bus from Ljubljana as opposed to Bled, which was only a few minutes away and also had an office. Someone from that office was out with us very quickly though and brought water and fruit as it was an extremely hot day. Our guide was excellent and held up well under the circumstances. The only criticism I have to him is not setting aside time in the middle of the day for everyone to have lunch on their own, when he allotted us upon our request 20 minutes to find something to eat we were travelling with a toddler it was already 3 in the afternoon and we had started out at 930 in the morning.
