I went on this tour by myself as I am traveling alone in Trieste but my tour guide Dejan was right on time to pick me up at my hotel with my name printed on a sign. He was friendly and professional with a great sense of humor and he was very knowledgeable about the area. Our first stop was the Predjama Castle which was incredible. Dejan walked me to the entrance and helped me get my ticket then turned me loose in the castle. Be sure to keep track of the time (about) 45 minutes as the cave tour runs on a regular schedule. The Postjona Cave was incredible. Bring a light jacket as it gets chilly. You get to ride a train inside and get a guided tour after the train drops you off within the depths of the cave. Your guide is waiting for you after to drop you off back at the hotel. It was amazing! I cannot recommend enough!
The cave experience was wonderful, but be prepared to climb many steps. Once the tour is done, there are 200 steps back up to the parking lot, so make sure you have comfortable shoes! Also, no photos are allowed, so don’t bother to bring a heavy camera. We also toured the Lipica stud farms. They let you pet the horses, unlike the tour in Vienna. There was also a show which our ticket did not cover. I don’t know if that would be an option for those interested, but it would extend your day by an hour or two.
Our bus driver and our tour guide (Annalisa) were very good, and we enjoyed their company during the tour. We enjoyed Aquieleia and Grado very much, both different experiences (Aquileia being more historical and small town feel, and Grado being more a weekend town with lots more shops and eating places), but highly worth the trip. It ould have been good to have some more choices available for lunch at Aquileia.
Both the cave and castle are stunningly beautiful and well worth a visit. If you had to choose between the Skógar cave and Lipica stud farm tour versus the Postojna Cave and Predjama Castle tour, it would be difficult as both are beautiful in their own ways; but I would take the castle tour over the horse farm tour. Do both if you have time!
Fast and clean view of the most important things here in Trieste! The driver and the girl who was doing the tour were so nice!! And for that price, people can use the service for 24 hours. So u can return there the next day and use it like a bus, for example! Thanks for the attention! Byeee
