Traveler Tips

The boat ride to the island is not cheap but definitely worth the experience.
It is about 50/50 car and outside of car but well worth the venture into Slovenia.
This tour is great for those who are strapped for time and want to experience as much of Slovenia as they can in one day.

Great day out
Daniel_F, Jan 2023
Great tour if you are in a rush and want to sample Slovenia. I will definitely return to the area as it is extremely beautiful. Antonio (maybe spelt incorrectly) was amazing and very patient tour guide. He made the experience very enjoyable.
A truly incredible experience!
Tabitha_M, Jan 2023
I was in Zagreb for two weeks for a study abroad program and booked this tour for one of my off days… a great decision. Our tour guide was amazing at explaining the history of the city and the views of the town and island were breathtaking!! We had some free time in the city to explore and grab lunch before heading to the lake and castle. I highly recommend hopping onto this tour if you’re in Zagreb - I’ll never forget this amazing experience!!
Great tour
David_G, Jan 2023
The tour was great! The perfect amount of time at each location and stress free travel through the city. Make sure to call and confirm the pick up location the day before.
If you’re in Zagreb for a few days definitely do this tour
David_R, Dec 2022
If you’re in Zagreb for a number of days then definitely take this day trip to Slovenia. Ljubljana is such a beautiful city, and we had ample free time to explore the castle and funicular, as well as an excellent tour through the city. Lake Bled and Bled castle are also magical to see in person. Being the winter it was quieter than usual but that just meant you could explore at your own leisure and our group pretty much had Bled island to itself. Antonio was a fantastic guide and gave a great detailed history of both Croatia and Slovenia en route and was friendly and attentive throughout. Overall, I would 100% recommend.
Worth to visit

This was a wonderful experience with a very knowledgeable tour guide. I would not have such a great experience without participating in this tour.
The driver is the best I ever had. The tours to Liubliana was absolutely amazing. The downtown, it’s market and of course Bled lake and it’s castle was absolutely breathtaking. The guide was precise, accurate and friendly. He helped with the photos!

Sandra_B, Oct 2022
Stephan was punctual, considerate and an informative Tour Guide. We were really amazed at all of the historical facts he provided as well as listening to his interesting stories. He also ensured we had sufficient rest breaks along the way. This was such a superb way to see the capitol of Slovenia and Bled Lake. It may seem that this tour may be too long, but it went by entirely so fast. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. I highly recommend it!
