Full description

Take a day to capture the spirit of magical Slovenia, visiting the two most sighted Slovenian gems. Take a scenic drive from Zagreb and discover the conutryside, before exploring Ljubljana and the Alpine resort of Bled.

Set off in a small group (max. 8 people) from the capital Zagreb and enjoy a scenic drive through the beautiful Croatian and Slovenian countryside. Get familiar with the itinerary for the day, as well as information about the sites you are visiting and the general history of Croatia and Slovenia. Arrive at Ljubljana. On your arrival, your guide will take you on a walking tour around the city center. Besides seeing many historical buildings and monuments you will climb up with funicular to the 13th-century medieval fortress, a symbol of the Slovenian capital Ljubljana.

There, you can see spectacular views of the town and Alp mountains in the distance. Gain a deeper understanding of the city's landmarks and more confidence to navigate on your own for the next 1 hour of your free time.

Continue to the Alpine resort of Bled. Upon arrival, ride up to the top of the cliff which seats the oldest castle in Slovenia. Be hypnotized by the views of Lake Bled, surrounded by stoic mountains. The whole castle is one big museum where you will learn all about Bleds culture and history. After about 45 minutes at the castle, descend down to Bled town which sits on the edge of the lake. Go explore, sit down for a coffee, order the famous Bled cream cake, or if you are more adventurous, rent a bicycle a do a spin around the lake. Make yourself comfortable and enjoy a scenic ride back to Zagreb.

The trip was so well organised, with a seamless transfer between the Ljubljana tour guide and the continuation onwards to Bled. I highly recommend this tour! The only thing is that we wish there was more free time to explore Ljubljana and Bled on our own, but given the time constraint I can understand why.

It is certainly a trip worth making. The driver was very polite, gave us information about Croatia on our way to Slovenia The local guide in Slovenia was also very good, walked us around the city of Ljubljana for just over 2 hours and the whole experience was very pleasant. If I were to comment on something it would be that the group should be a max of 7 people rather than 8 (even if the van spec says 8/9), as in reality the 2 people who need to sit in front next to the driver are quite uncomfortable. Overall a positive experience
