Overall rating

(7 reviews)

The caves were amazing. Being so close to these old stalactites and stalagmites was incredible. It didn't feel you were walking for a long time but you were with stops in-between for explanations on what you were seeing. At the end you walked out into the nature and back to the starting point. Piran was also great but unfortunately for us, it rained. On a nice day you could wander the narrow streets forever but I had to find shelter. We were looked after very well by Dushan, sorry I should have gotten the proper spelling of your name. It was a great day despite the weather.

For 100 Euro you expect more -the visit to Piran could easily have bern longer and it would have bern nice with one more stop in a village. Our guide Dean was great, very knowledgeable and accommodating

Loved it. The time at the stud farm was my highlight. It was great to interact with those beautiful animals! Piran was also great, lovely place for lunch and so nice to be on the sea. Great trip!

Dean was a superb guide and really gave us the inside details and history of the Slovenian coast. Well worth the time and money!

Excellent tour to get to know Piran on a pleasant trip with personalized service and an excellent guide
