Full description
Your full-day (11-hour) excursion begins with a pick-up at your centrally located hotel or Zrinjevac Park. Sit back and relax in an air-conditioned vehicle for the 2-hour drive to Ljubljana. En route your guide will tell you about the history of Croatia and Slovenia. You’ll hear about the hidden gems of both countries and the historical dynamics that carved them into countries they are today. Start your visit at Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, where the beauty of this small but big-hearted city will enchant you. Note the variety of architectural styles and quirky bridges with their carved dragons. Your guide will lead you on a leisurely walking tour, and tell you all the interesting bits about this Slovenian pearl. Conclude your Ljubljana experience at Ljubljana Castle, reaching the castle on a 60-second funicular ride. Take in panoramic views of the city. After the tour you’ll have free time for lunch.   Continue your visit to Lake Bled at its impressive medieval castle that dates back to the 11th century. Perched atop a steep cliff rising 130 meters above the glacial lake, it is a symbol of Bled and Slovenia. Take in the mesmerizing views of the Julian Alps, the Church of the Assumption of Mary on the rocky islet and the surrounding natural beauty. Get up close to the lake and enjoy a walk to take in even more breathtaking vistas. Return to Zagreb.

    You should definitely do this tour! We went on this with Maja as our guide and she was truly excellent, we think she is awesome! Really good pace to the day as you do a lot between a Ljubljana tour and Lake Bled. One thing is that Ljubljana has a great food market on Fridays where restaurants do a bit of a street food fair and if your schedule allows, going on Friday was particularly fun for us! Also, Maja is super informative, very friendly, and just a great tour guide all-around!

    It took as a bit of time when crossing the border maybe 30-45 minutes (estimate). We were meet by a local guide in Ljubljana who was very good. (thanks Anelka). The town of Ljubljana is very small, well Slovenia as a whole is small. Its a cute little town to explore. After that, we head out to Lake Bled and what a marvelous place! Its exactly the same images online! Such beauty and calm of the place. You’ll visit the castle with the perfect view of the lake, tasting in honeyshop, and old print shop. And of course a must try ‘cream cake’ at the bottom of the lake. The country drive vibe in Slovenia was just awesome. Thanks to our guide and driver (Renato)! It was a great trip!

    Both places Ljubljana and Lake Bled are definitely worth visiting.

    The guide was excellent. He was very knowledgable and a very nice guy. Enjoyed the tour thoroughly. Even though there were only two of us in the small group tour, Petros did not cancel the tour and we are most appreciative of this. We had only three days in Zagreb so we are glad to be able to visit these places. Slovenia is a beautiful country and we would like ot revisit the places again.
