Really can’t think of a better way to explore Bled and Bohinj. The guide was awesome, full of knowledge about Slovenija’s history and a bunch of fun facts! He took us to the snowy mountains of Bohinj, to see a beautiful waterfall, to a cozy little village that seemed to come out straight of a Christmas postcard and to a tasty restaurant with all of Slovenija’s classics. Then we went to Lake Bled and the castle and he stopped at all the right spots to get the best views. Just wonderful overall and definitely worth it!

What an incredible experience, I couldn’t recommend it highly enough!! Our guide Vasco (I think that was his name) was amazing! He gave us lots of information about Slovenian history and culture on the drive there which was great. We had amazing weather and both Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj were absolutely stunning despite the cold. The stop offs to try cream cake (delicious), visit the castle and the boat ride to the island were very worthwhile. What an amazing experience!

Our guide, Vasko, was very informative. He went out of his way to make our tour a great experience. We were picked up at our hotel, which was very convenient.

Amazing trip, would recommend this activity to everyone looking to explore Lake Bled and the surrounding area :)

Very good experience in winter, wonderful landscapes and discovery of local culture !
