Ljubljana and Bled are two of the top destinations to visit in Slovenia, and you can see both with ease on this tour. Travel with your driver-guide to the capital Ljubljana and stroll through the old town center. Admire the varied architecture and stop by Ljubljana Town Hall, the Triple Bridge, Ljubljana Cathedral, and other attractions. Then continue to Bled, where you can take in views of the lake and the church on Bled Island.
We had such an amazing time in Ljubljana and Bled! Our guide was fantastic from beginning to end. He was extremely knowledgeable, attentive, cheerful and will do anything to make your experience a truly amazing one. Slovenia is a beautiful country and a hidden gem! This was a phenomenal experience and I highly recommend.
For the price paid, this was a disappointing tour. I was expecting a small group, but we were thrown in with a large tour from another cruise line.. so instead of a small group, we were with 28 others on an old and dirty bus. Tour guide was a let down as well, she was a student, not what I would call a professional guide.
Not enough time to really explore Bled a visit to the castle would have been far too rushed so all to do is wander around the very pretty lake and walk back to the bus.
Attempted to have the cream cake kremšnita, however the wait staff refused to serve us. Thought it was just us, but 4 others on the same tour experienced the same.
Ljubljana was a better experience. Very interesting city, but no time to explore on own despite being told several times there would be free time. Had 2 minutes literally to run into a shop to buy the pumpkin seed oil delicious.
This tour is far too rushed and would be much more enjoyable as separate tours. As it is now, not recommended.
Tour Supplier Comment: Thank you for your feedback! We are very sorry to hear about your unpleasant experience during this tour.
Regarding the time schedule, our trips are planned according to the cruise ship departure time and we may adjust as necessary to find the most optimal time schedule so our customers can enjoy visiting both Bled Lake and Ljubljana and be back on time in Koper. Unfortunately, this is not a small-group tour, as these are very popular destinations. Each client is typically given at least 1 hour of free time in each location as we understand that our guests would like to go to lunch, see the city on their own, or collect some souvenirs.
We would also like to assure you that your guide on the date of your tour is a competent, licensed, travel professional, despite her current status as a student. Also, please rest assured, we have reviewed our vehicles to ensure they are all clean with working air conditioning as we always try to deliver best service possible to our customers.
In addition to this, we have personally contacted the place that serves Bled Crème Cake Kremšnita and discussed the situation about customers who were forced to wait for services and they sincerely apologized for all inconveniences their customers experienced. The place was simply overcrowded and they could not accept any new customers at that time. Our guide did manage to buy some Crème Cake Kremšnita and offered it to the clients on the bus who wanted to try it so we do hope you were still able to get a taste of this treat!
We hope you were still able to enjoy your tour despite the issues you mentioned in your review and wish you happy travels for the future.
We enjoyed this tour with our guide Dan who drove us around with two other couples from our cruise ship. Lake bled is incredibly beautiful and Dan recommended a cafe where we tried the local specialty cream bun yum, we would have loved to of been able to visit the castle but there was not enough time due to our ships arrival and departure time. Dan took us to his home town of Ljubljana which has a beautiful Austrian style Main Street and a church with must see fresco's. Dan even took us in to the local market with outdoor cafe's and wine bars and helped translate for us so we could order the local cheeses, prosciutto and wine to try when we had some free time at the end of the tour.
We had a lovely day on this tour. Dejan, of Koper Tours was excellent. The only issue here was really something Viatour could have corrected. Those going to Ljubljana AND Lake Bled were told to be at the bus at 7:45 am. We were all there, however there were six people scheduled for only the Ljubljana portion of the tour AND they were told to be at the SAME bus at 9 a.m. SO we waited an hour and 15 minutes for them to board before we left. We were told we would have a couple hours in Lake Bled, but because of the late start, we were there for less than an hour. Not nearly enough time to explore the place Lake Bled I most wanted to see on this whole cruise. This would have been a 5 tour except for Viatour's bus scheduling error. Koper tours did a great job! Thanks Dejan!
