Joseph our guide was excellent. He was knowledgeable and helpful. Despite the cloudy weather he made our routine perfect. The transportation and Joseph's driving were excellent.

Barbara was so lovely and informative! We learnt do much and got to explore so much of beautiful Slovenia. The tour was small and intimate so could ask plenty of questions and get lots of photos. We all had an amazing day!

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and told some interesting facts about Bled. the view from
the castle was stunning. Bohinj was even more very scenic than Bled. Except for the cloudy and rainy weather at the initial part of the trip everything was super

Tour was outstanding minus our guide. This tour packs a lot into one day but is truly beautiful and a great way to experience the Julian Alps for the day. The downside was Ziga, our guide, who was basically silent the whole trip. I was really looking forward to hearing rich stories, anecdotes, and more than just the wikipedia page results/awkward one-liner facts about Slovenia. Ziga was uninspired, tired?, and is just not suited for the tour guide profession. He was a great driver and pointed us to a great restaurant though. Highly recommend this tour if you get one of the other guides in the reviews - sounds like there are lots of good ones. Request someone else by name.

Barbara was amazing! We were met with unexpected rain and she worked to accommodate the situation and made the day so enjoyable. Her knowledge of Slovenia and the Bled/Bohinj area was very impressive. We really loved the tour!

This tour is a must when visiting Slovenia . A thoroughly enjoyable day from beginning to end. We booked a private tour which Id recommend because you can fit the day around you. our tour guide Eva was friendly and knowledgeable. The views of both Bled and the Bohinj Valley were breath taking and the highlight of our holiday. We never felt rushed on this trip and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Slovenia.

A wonderful day! We walked up to see the scenic Savica waterfall, toured through the most beautiful Bohinj Valley and visited Lake Bled and Bled Castle. Our guide, Vladimir, was very knowledgeable and thoughtful, with a very quirky sense of humour. We really enjoyed our time with him.
We highly recommend this tour!

Flexible tour options. Not rushed at all. We got to see everything we wanted to. Lunch was great and cake near Bled lake was an excellent experience. Guide Marco was excellent, too. A highly recommended. tour. Moderate fitness required for the trek to the waterfall 20 mins UP. Bring a bottle of water to sip throughout the day.
