We had a wonderful time on this tour and highly recommend it. Piran is very picturesque and there are plenty of lovely restaurants to choose from for lunch during your free time. Our guide Vladamir was excellent, very chatty and knowledgable. The walking tour was optional but i'm glad we chose to do it as he took us down backstreets and showed us sights we most likely would not have seen if we had gone off on our own straight away. The salt fields were also really interesting and all in all it was a great day out!
Though we had rain for half this tour it was still very beautiful and our tour guide was excellent
This is nice tour with very good professional guide who knows history of Slovenia and history of these 2 little city.
I had an excellent guide who took great care of me, I have Parkinson's disease and arthritis. On this occasion we went to the sea salt production area too.
The coast is beautiful. Both towns are very small and there isn't very much to do...besides enjoy your surroundings. We went to the salt mines beforehand, which was interesting but seemed out of place on the tour. Our guide was nice but very difficult to understand...I only caught about 50 of what he was saying. Some people went swimming, the water is clear and pretty. Definitely a very relaxing day.
Good tour, good guide. I enjoyed the visit of the sea salt production. Piran is a nice small little town.
Piran is an excellent town, beautiful scenary by the sea. We really enjoy it. The beach is a bit rocky for swimming.
The most unpleasant happening for this trip is the tourist guide that we got, she speaks stutter, broken English. The car was parked under the hot sun for hours the parkade actually has lots of underground parking spots.available,so that when we got into the car it was steaming hot,I can hardly breath so my husband opened the window to catch some breath but the lady said either to keep the air conditioner on or open the window but she was driving on freeway , so, my husband can only choose to close the window. We are just steaming in the car, the lady said she turned the A/C to 18 degrees BUT the fan was just MINIMUM, cool air did not go to the back at all, my God!!! she was coughing during the day too, I think if she is sick , she should stay home and not turn the fan to minimum and let her customers steaming like crazy , she is not customer orientated at all, can make the trip so much better if we have a different guide
How lovely to have a mediterranean coastal area in a country with beautiful mountains. How wonderful to have a tour with only one other couple. No huge lines waiting to get on or off a bus. The guide was so pleasant. The old medieval town was interesting. Spending time eating right at the sea was lovely. The salt farm was interesting but took too long walking to and from. The little train should have been included in the price of the tour.
Piran was a very quaint and picturesque town. With gorgeous seafood restaurants selling the most amazing calamari! Not much to see or do in Portoroz although it has a beautiful beach if sun bathing is your thing. We did have some lovely icecream here though!
The tour guide was amazing but the location was average. If you have limited time in Slovenia, I would not worry about rushing to go to these locations as Slovenia has so many more beautiful places to visit.
