This was an excellent day ! I very nearly didn’t book it but so glad I did . From visiting a small village , crossing into Slovenia , visiting a shepherds hit and tasting local cheese to the funicular ride it was all amazing . Even though it was overcast the mountains were a majestic sight. Adam our guide was superb and managed the day professionally but in a relaxed and entertaining way - 10/10 to Adam and 10/10 for the tour

Before booking this I wasn’t totally sure whether it would be a good idea as it is a long trip but oh my goodness was it worth it! Had the best day of the holiday on this trip. The tour guide was brilliant and guided our group with ease. 100% recommend!
