We had the best day on our tour, the lakes were beautiful and our tour guide Doda was great! Everything was taken care of and we were given a good amount of time to explore each location. Doda also taught us a lot about Slovenia and it’s history making for an entertaining journey.

I had a really great time during the tour! Especially I was amazed by the Cave as I didn’t expect it to be so big and captivating. Bled lake is a mesmerizing place to visit and chill. Our guide Roko was a very pleasant person, good driver and storyteller. Well done!

Mikhail was a fantastic guide. Enthusiastic and engaging. There were only 8 attendees and the tour was in a spacious van (not a bus). The day is very structured so there isn't really time to wander about. Highly recommend if you're wanting to visit these sites.

The tours was amazing and everything went very smoothly. We were a small ground and able to do everything at our own pace; it was lots or fun. The places are gorgeous too. I definitely recommend visiting both lakes!

Unbelievable and we had a fantastic tour guide named Luca!
