    We had a great day with Nina. The pickup was on time and the van was comfortable and the air conditioning was great. The first stop was Predjama castle which was unlike anything I had seen before and not sure how they built that structure in to the mountain. The caves were also great. I haven’t explored caves before so I can’t really compare but the structures inside were fantastic. Definitely bring a sweater or a light jacket. It was extremely hot the day we visited but was was freezing with a sweater by the time we left. Nina was a great guide and driver and was waiting for us nearby when we left each attraction. I highly recommend this tour.

  • From Ljubljana: Trip to Lake Bled and Bled Castle

    10. From Ljubljana: Trip to Lake Bled and Bled Castle

Take a short walk along the lakeshore as the beauty of the surrounding mountains reflects off the lake surface. No matter the season, you'll enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of the lake and the fresh mountain air.  Perched atop a steep cliff more than 100 meters above the lake, Bled Castle is the iconic image of a medieval fortress, with towers, ramparts, moats and a terrace offering magnificent views.

    Our guide Eva was awesome. She came on time, very friendly, knowledgeable about the whole Slovanian history. Started her explanation of Slovenian history as she drove us to the Vintgargorge where she helped us to get the tickets so we can beta the queue and be on time. Her explanations of the gorge were detailed and well understood. We then drove to Blad which was the main attraction with a detailed explanation of the lake. And in all, Eva was amazing and the best ever and definitely I would recommend my friends to book with her when they visit Ljudbliana.

Amazing !!!!!! 5 stars ++++ We first went to the Vintgar Gorge for about 1h30, that was a beautiful landscape. Then we climbed our way up to the Bled castle with an astouding point of view (and great Bled cake). Then we had the choice between a boat trip to the Bled island or a hike around the lakeshore (we did the last one and it was gorgeous). Then we drove to Bohinj lake where we could go for a swim, it was so peaceful! And then we went to a cute médiéval village named Skojka Gora and our guide told us the whole story about it. Our guide was very useful and told us many many stories about the country. Thanks a lot again!!! Would definitely recommand +++
