Small cozy group, pick up was on time and the guide Vladimir had a lot of information to share. Everything went smoothly as planned.

It was really a nice experience. Vlad was really nice and full with information that helped us know the Slovenian culture.

It was a long day, but it was a comfortable day. The van was new and very spacious, and Nina was an excellent guide.
