    A very nice tour in the hinterland of the Slovenian Adriatic coast! Due to the corona, we were the only two participants on the tour, so the excursion had something almost familiar, especially since our guide Grega spoke almost perfect German and gave us a lot of information about the country and its people. During the wine and food tasting in a small winery, we experienced real Slovenian hospitality. An all-round successful tour that we would do again at any time.
