Had a great day. Tour was sensational and there was a driver and a guide, so lots of commentary. We did another tour with To Do In Slovenia. They are a professional company who does the very best for their customers. Would highly recommend booking tours with them.

It felt like a private tour as there were only four of us. Our tour guide was Domagoj and he gave us enough time to roam around Ljubljana and Lake Bled. Lake Bled is very beautiful despite the drizzle.

The guide was well versed, educated and knowledgeable. Our trip was a very pleasant one.. Keep up the good work

The tour was great! Comfortable and Daniel gave us loads of information! He definitely made it worth while!

super guide, well informed, excellent English and very friendly
