We were picked on time, vehicle was good, spacious, choice of locations and actual visits were well timed with driver giving good info everywhere.

Great day out visiting the coast and the caves. We visited in March and it was still basically winter so weather was quite cold. That didn't stop us having a lovely time and in a way, made it more magical.

This is a very well-organized tour and you manage to do/see a lot of varied sights within the 10 hours. Tjaša was a great driver/guide she kept us well on time and shared a lot of interesting/fun information as well as entertained our questions. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to combine a visit to the World Heritage-listed Škocjan Caves with a bit of Slovene Istria. The Karst Prosciutto and wine tasting is a good, value-for-money option to take up as a light lunch and it lets you spend more of your time in Piran exploring instead of having lunch there. My only suggestion to make this tour 100 perfect would be to cut down on the time in Piran you could easily visit its main sights in an hour and a half once you exclude lunch and use the spare hour to enter Predjama Castle it is only an exterior photo-stop on this tour due to the time constraints.

Not a good tour, we were supposed to go to 4 places but went to only 2. Badly organised, we were only transported from place to place with no value addition! Wouldn't recommend at all!

One of the best tours I have done. Roundabouts tour guide Luca was amazing. Very knowledgable! He made the tour very enjoyable! I loved the caves, which are better than Postojna in my opinion, as you get the proper experience walking with a guide. Piran is an amazing little coastal town. It was absolutely stunning! The castle was great to see even if it was only from the outside. Thanks Luca for one of the best tours I have ever done!

Our tour was great. Our driver/guide was helpful with information and history. Our day was entertaining, with enough activity to satisfy us. The caves were amazing the coastal city was lovely. Our guide told us what was special to buy. Wonderful day and a great investment.
