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.

Easy fun way to experience the castle and cave

Great experience, it was easy to work with the company, guide was on time, lively, and fun. Cave was unique and infrastructure excellent. Castle was very i on the outside and Urban’s lively narrative made the experience all the better. Best of all, no issues whatsoever so you can engage and enjoy the experience.

Great experience overall.

Peter was a great tour guide who kept us on schedule without rushing and was knowledgeable about the sites and regions. He answered our questions and kept the tour at a pace that was suitable for everyone. The group was small so it was perfect. Highly recommend this half day tour!
