2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better June 2012

The guide didn't follow the itinerary. A coffee stop at Ptuj took the place of a tour of the old town. Maribor wasn't as interesting as it sounded.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this April 2013

I thought this was a waste of money! Firstly it said it included lunch and wine tasting. Lunch WAS NOT included and I was sent off to have lunch on my own and pay for it. Wine tasting was a rushed 30-45 minutes. I got a really ood bottle of wine out of it though for a good price. But this tour was supose to include a guided tour but it did not. The driver gave me alot of information but if he hadnt then I would not have known anything! The driver was fantastic as I was the only guest so we were able to be flexible and go off the "beaten track" but I could have done this tour on my own and paid less.
