Would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Trieste, we had an absolute blast! Ernie was an excellent guide and fantastic storyteller. He told us different facts about Trieste and Slovenia on the drive to Lake Bled. Lake Bled is stunning and we were given some free time to explore. Ernie recommended trying the traditional Bled cake which was delicious and he also drove us up to the castle! When we arrived at Ljubljana, we were given a short tour and then free time to explore. It was the perfect tour and special thanks to Ernie for making our trip magical.

The day was great. Deon is an excellent guide sharing lots of information. The drive to Lake Bled was him telling us about Slovenia. Lake Bled is beautiful and we were given free time to wander and explore. The recommendation of trying the traditional cake is a definite must. Ljubljana is lovely to walk around. We were given a short tour and then free time to explore.

We had a lovely trip even though the weather was not great at Lake Bled it was still a well worth visit and then onto Ljubljana where it brightened up and we could enjoy our time walking around the city and sitting outside taking in the culture Our guide Ernie was very knowledgeable and passionate about his country and very helpful

Ernie, our guide, was excellent and while the weather could have been better, we had a great day.
