Full description
Your full-day (11-hour) excursion begins with a pick-up at your centrally located hotel or Zrinjevac Park. Sit back and relax in an air-conditioned vehicle for the 2-hour drive to Ljubljana. En route your guide will tell you about the history of Croatia and Slovenia. You’ll hear about the hidden gems of both countries and the historical dynamics that carved them into countries they are today. Start your visit at Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, where the beauty of this small but big-hearted city will enchant you. Note the variety of architectural styles and quirky bridges with their carved dragons. Your guide will lead you on a leisurely walking tour, and tell you all the interesting bits about this Slovenian pearl. Conclude your Ljubljana experience at Ljubljana Castle, reaching the castle on a 60-second funicular ride. Take in panoramic views of the city. After the tour you’ll have free time for lunch.   Continue your visit to Lake Bled at its impressive medieval castle that dates back to the 11th century. Perched atop a steep cliff rising 130 meters above the glacial lake, it is a symbol of Bled and Slovenia. Take in the mesmerizing views of the Julian Alps, the Church of the Assumption of Mary on the rocky islet and the surrounding natural beauty. Get up close to the lake and enjoy a walk to take in even more breathtaking vistas. Return to Zagreb.

    Both places Ljubljana and Lake Bled are definitely worth visiting.

    The guide was excellent. He was very knowledgable and a very nice guy. Enjoyed the tour thoroughly. Even though there were only two of us in the small group tour, Petros did not cancel the tour and we are most appreciative of this. We had only three days in Zagreb so we are glad to be able to visit these places. Slovenia is a beautiful country and we would like ot revisit the places again.

    Perfect day trip from Zagreb!

    Ljubljana and Lake Bled were the perfect outing during one of my days in Zagreb! My guide, Goran, was friendly and knowledgeable about Slovenia and all the sights we passed on our way to our destination. We met up with a local guide in Ljubljana, and she took us to all the most picturesque sights and recommended all types of restaurants! It actually would have been nice to have even a little extra free time in the city, because there was so much to do and see. The only sad bit about my trip was that it was rainy/foggy the entire day, so I didn’t get those gorgeous views of the alps. But those things can never be predicted. :)

    Our tour guide Steve arrived exactly on time and held a fantastic tour all day, he was very knowledgeable not only about the sights we saw but also about the region as a whole. We had great conversation amongst Steve and our small group all the way there and back. Plenty of free time on the tour as well as excellent guided parts. It was a very relaxed atmosphere being a small group. I would definitely recommend this tour.. thank you Steve for a great day!
