Meet your guide at your central Ljubljana hotel for a small-group tour of Lake Bled, Postojna Cave, and Predjama Castle. Buckle up as your air-conditioned minivan sets off for Lake Bled nestled in Slovenia’s Julian Alps.

Appreciate Slovenia’s green countryside during the hour drive and learn about the mixed glacial and tectonic formations of Lake Bled. Hear about Bled Island’s iconic 17th century pilgrimage church decorated with Gothic frescos. As you wind into town through majestic peaks, notice the 11th century Bled Castle rising high atop a stony bluff.

Next, hop aboard a wooden pletna and enjoy crystal clear waters on your cruise to the Island. Disembark and spend time roaming the Church of the Assumption of Mary (own expense) or tasting local slovenian treats at the island cafe.

After returning from the island, head up to Bled Castle to explore its restored buildings and historic walls. Enter the museum and delve into the castle’s history as you see its artifacts, armor and weaponry. Then grab stunning panoramic views of the lakes from atop the cliff.

Enjoy more time on your own and stroll the lake stopping for lunch (own expense). Perhaps try some tasty potica, a slovenian nut roll pastry (own expense). Then meet back up with your group for a drive to Predjama Castle.

Arrive at this eerie Renaissance-era castle tucked away in the rocky cliffs of south-central Slovenia. Discover the legend of Erazem Predjama as you weave through many dark staircases into mysterious rooms.

Finally move on to Slovenia’s most popular site Postojna Cave. Wind along a mini-train through the second longest cave network in the country. Then follow your guide into the creepy natural chambers and witness strange stalactites, stalagmites and rock formations. Learn about the blind salamanders referred to as ‘human fish’ which live in the subsurface rivers.

On your way back to your hotel in Ljubljana, enjoy sharing your memorable day in Slovenia.

We loved our tour! Vesna was a great guide, entertaining us with stories of Slovenias’ history. She had great knowledge to share with us. She was also an excellent driver in terrible weather, we felt safe with her on the highway. We could never have seen so much in one day without this tour.

I did the full day trip with lake bled and bled castle in the morning. We then dropped some people back in Ljubljana and the rest of us continued to see Predjama castle and Postojna cave. Personally my favourite part of the tour was lake bled - the boat trip was great and we had a perfect amount of time to relax. The second half of the tour was ok but we were rushed going around Predjama castle as we had to leave to make our time for the postojna caves. The caves were interesting as we had a guided tour but having already seen limestone caves before they weren't that exciting for me. Also the caves are very cold so take a jumper/ coat.

With very limited time in Slovenia it was a great day tour it covered all that we wanted to see . It was a big day however very well run. Would have liked to do a bit of a walk around the lake however can understand why this was difficult to accommodate.

We have been absolutely blown away by this tour......it exceeded all expectations. Bled is beautiful and the caves are stunning. Prejama castle is wonderful as well.. What made this trip even more special was our guide, Alenka, who was amazing. She was such fun to be with all day, full of pride for her country and just the sort of person you need to lead a small group Thoroughly recommend this tour........and get Alenka if you can

This was a comprehensive small group day tour when I was short on time in Slovenia. I was picked up from my hotel in Ljubljana and off we went to Lake Bled where we visited the island and then the castle. After the local cake lakeside, we were driven to a local restaurant where we had a local lunch of our choice from a set menu. Reasonably priced and plenty of food. Our guide returned with three more passengers and then we head to Predjama Castle followed by Postojna Caves. We had ample time at each location and it was a very long day but worth every cent.

Our guide, Tine, was so knowledgeable and kind and helpful. We got to see and do so much in one day and since it was so hot, it was lovely going into the cool cave. I would have loved a little more time at the lake to do the toboggan ride and swim quickly, but it was great to go out to the island where the church was and to view the castle from within.
