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.

I recently took a full day tour visiting Postjama Castle, Postojna Cave, and Lake Bled and I have to say, it was an excellent tour. The price of the tour was more expensive than other tours, but it was worth it because the entry tickets for Postojna Cave and Posjama Castle were included. One of the best things about the tour was that there was only a group of two and the guide, so we practically had a private tour. We went with a personal car and the guide was very informative and talked about various different topics that exceeded the coverage we expected. On the way to Lake Bled, we stopped in a small village and had a delicious lunch at a local restaurant with authentic Slovenian cuisine. I would highly recommend the Deer Steak. The only disadvantage of booking the tour in the winter months is that daylight is shorter. Overall, I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Slovenia and looking for a comprehensive and enjoyable experience

The package to visit the cave and the castle are well planned. The pickup was punctual, the pickup point was very close to the hotel and clear directions were given regarding the pick up point. Our tour guide Mr Valdamir was excellent, he made the journey such an memorable experience. It was a fun trip, hearing the stories, history of Slovenia and some insights into the life in Slovenia . I would blindly recommend the trip, and if you are lucky with the same tour guide we had it will become a unforgettable experience.

We absolutely loved this tour!! Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and being a small group of only 4 of us meant there was flexibility for people to do their own thing. The caves and castle are absolutely incredible and worth paying the extra money to visit (entry fee not included in tour). Then we set off to Bled and caught a pretna boat to the island, again ticket not included but worth the experience. Bled castle was interesting but very different to Predjama!

We loved our tour and our guide was super knowledgeable. The pace was a little fast and we did have a phone representative who was not helpful to the point of rude. However, our guide was so great we were willing to look passed that

Memorable experience. It is really worth visiting this picrurisque scenery.
