The guide/driver was punctual and attentive and he provided useful information. The Postojna Caves were spectacular !! I was apprehensive to be underground for that long but I was so captivated that I completely forgot my phobia. The Predjama Castle was a bit anti-climatic but still very interesting and worthwhile. Don't miss the Gibanica dessert served at the nearby restaurant, Gostilna Požar Restaurant.

This was a wonderful experience to see many places within Slovenia. The extras make for a good experience but are not needed the tour alongside the wonderful tour guide and his passion for Slovenia was money well spent.
