A day well spent and beautiful scenary
hmtaplin
, Feb 2020
My husband and I took this tour because of the beautiful views which we had heard about. We were the only two on the tour that day, because we visited in December. Both areas were absolutely beautiful and because it was so quiet we managed to get incredible photos of the scenary without all of the tourists. Our guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. We would do it again and can't recommend it enough.

Fabulous day out
Stay17173861767
, Oct 2019
This was a day full of beautiful sights. Our guide had lots of local knowledge and helped us avoid the crowds. The gorge is stunning!!! We felt like we had plenty of time everywhere we stopped and the guide was flexible with the order and times. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to see the lakes.

Dear Stay17173861767, Thank you so much for sharing your “Fabulous day out” with us as your travel companion. Lake Bled and Bohinj Valley tour is one of our best tours for sure. Slovenia offers a lot, but these attractions you visit at this daily tour are amazing and one of the bests. Our guides are always there for you with all the information and local knowledge and since we know all the paths to the sites, we can sometimes make some turns to avoid crowds. Vintgar Gorge is really stunning as you said. It is even better if you have enough time at the sites so you can really enjoy the views and beauty of our small country. Thank you again for your recommendation and if you will be back to Slovenia again, let us know TO DO IN SLOVENIA team would be happy to host you again. Best regards, Martin Popit

Lakes tour with Maja
Fearless260181
, Oct 2019
Lucky enough to be there when the leaves were in full colour and the day was perfectly sunny and still. Our guide, Maja, was the best - friendly, informative about both the area, but also about Slovenia in general. I learned so much about the country’s past, present and it’s friendly people. Plenty of time for wandering and appreciating the beauty of the lakes; Maja was happy to stop at anytime for Photos, etc. highly recommended.

Dear Fearless260181, Thank you for sharing your 5* experience with everybody here at Tripadvisor, we are always happy to read such a great feedback. When you travel to Slovenia in autumn you can expect Slovenia to be in full colors as our country is more than 50% covered by forests, with a bit of luck you can have a sunny day which makes everything even better. Maja will be so happy to read this nice word about her such a feedback is the most we can get. Our tours are mostly longer than those from our competitors so we can give you more time to enjoy the sites we visit. Thank you for the recommendation and if you or your friends come to Slovenia let us know, we would be happy to assist again. Best regards, Martin Popit

Mia was a wonderful tour guide. We were lucky to be only 2 in our group. She was very knowledgeable about the area and delivered the information in an interesting way. She was very flexible and willing to accommodate our wishes although we were happy to be guided by her advice. Although it rained on and off during day, she maximized our enjoyment. Full marks to Mia!

Dear Dream641772, Thank you so much for your review we are glad that you chose us as your travel companion. It is very nice to hear that you had an excellent tour despite the rain. Maja is one of our most regular guides and we are happy that she works with us. Sometimes at the end of the season it can happen that you are the only one who booked a trip so you can have a “private” experience with us. Our guides than makes everything even more personalized so you can have the best time with us. Thank you for your kind words again. Best regards, Martin Popit

Bled & Bohinj Valley tour from Ljubljana
wgibbens
, Sep 2019
Excellent visit to Lake Bled & the Vintgar Gorge but then felt the trip/stop at Bohinj Valley was way too long probably only needed 1/2 hour not 1 1/2 hours-not much to see or do & unfortunately the restaurant was closed. Lana was very informative & friendly.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2019
Dear wgibbens, thank you so much for your review we are glad that you chose us as your local tour provider. Bled and Bohinj tour is one of our most popular trips and we are doing our best to maintain this. As this is a regular/shared tour we try to adjust timing to the whole group, some of you can take a faster walk through the gorge and some are a bit slower, for sure we will take this into consideration for the next season. Lana she is one of our best guides and she will be happy to read these nice words about her. Thank you again and if you will be back to Slovenia, we can offer you a private tour where you can choose the length of the stops by yourself. We will be glad to assist you. Best regards, Martin Popit

Beautiful day with an excellent guide
rosalin2019

We had an amazing full day tour with our guide Maja. She had a lot of interesting information about Slovenia to share with us and she was an excellent guide & driver throughout the whole day. We also appreciated her flexibility and professionality on the tour order (we started with Vintgar Gorge, continued to Bohinj and finished with Lake Bled). There's no lunch included but there are many great restaurants to choose from in Lake Bled. Thank you, we really enjoyed our day!

Dear rosalin2019, thank you for your feedback we are glad that you had a beautiful day with an excellent guide of To do in Slovenia.

All of the attractions visited are counted under the most popular ones in Slovenia. As lunch time comes during the long day our guides have enough experiences to recommend you the right restaurant at Bled or anywhere else in Slovenia. In case you want to come back, you are welcome we would be honored to host you again. Best regards, Martin Popit

Dear eiasm, thank you for sharing your excellent feedback of our Bled and Bohinj valle tour with everybody here at Tripadvisor. We offer small group excursions so mostly we do not overcome 7 people in the vehicle. This is why we can really have a personal approach to everybody at our trips. We are happy to read that your guide was friendly, knowledgeable and that she was always smiling as this is a proof that we are working well. Thank you for the recommendation and if you want to do it again yourself let us know we would be happy to host you again. Best regards, Martin Popit
