This tour was so much more than I expected. Alenka the guide was so knowledgeable and friendly! She did absolutely everything she could to make my experience the best it could be. It didn’t feel like a tour but more like a hike with friends! I Learnt so much about Slovenia and the locals. If your in Ljubljana and have some time. This tour is MUST!

Treated like a guest and family all at the same time! Alenka was the most gracious guide. We thoroughly enjoyed our day in the beautiful mountain air. The climb was quite a workout, definitely not a leisurely stroll, but after days of traveling, the exercise was just what we needed. And the company was delightful!

Helped arrange a personalized tour last minute. The tour was great, beautiful scenery, exactly what we hoped for. Highly recommend.
