This was a great tour that we thoroughly enjoyed but Tine absolutely made the trip. Tine was wonderfully professional and efficient while also being very personable, funny :), and knowledgeable. His experience in navigating everything from the roads to the logistics of getting into the sites really made the day comfortable. I really enjoyed the information about the area as well as Slovenia throughout the trip. I could have listened to him tell more stories!

Our guide Sanda was wonderful. She provided prompt pickup/drop off service, shared good information about the country and revised the order of our visits to avoid crowds and the make the most of our visit.
