“Experienced Tour Guides! Highly Recommend Doing a Private Tour! Worth Every Penny!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Took three tours with them during my time in Slovenia. The first one was the Karst and Coast Mystery tour, which took me to the Predjama Castle, Skocjan Cave and Piran, with a very brief stop at Lipica to see the White Lipizzaner. Overall, the first trip was nice and I just wish we had a little more time to actually go in and visit the Castle rather than just seeing it from the outside.

The second tour that I tool was the Alphine Fairytale Tour, which took me to Lake Bled, Triglav National Park (a must visit because it's so tranquil and peaceful there), and Skofja Loka. Our tour guide was very patient and lively at the same time, willing to explain every thing in details to us. The minor drawback is that it would have been better if our time a the Bled Castle can be a little bit longer. We did go inside the Castle but it's really a rush to take pictures and see everything in such a short time.

My last tour is actually a private tour from Ljubljana to Zagreb. I was a bit concerned at the beginning because it was raining so bad. My tour guide, Primoz, is probably one of the most friendly and educated tour guides I have ever seen. I was picked up by a BMW and on the way, he actually asked me what I wanted to see and plan around it. Since I didn't have a major agenda, I ended up getting to see a lot of awesome little towns and Kostanjevica-on-Krka, which is a former Cistercian monastery turned into a Gallery. I saw one of the most magnificent exhibitions that I have ever seen in my lifetime by Tomislav Buntak. He actually painted in neon paints and you have to see the painting under florescent lights. It's really an eye-opening experience. Finally, Primoz drove to a little village to experience some local hospitality and visit a couple of home vineyards. Overall, the final private tour, though more expensive, was worth every penny and I really love the warm hospitality provided by the local. It gave me a very positive lasting impression of the country and I will definitely be back!

“Great private tour to Bled”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

My wife and I were in Koper for a port stop on a cruise, but we had done most of the area around Istria, Trieste, Ljubljana, and Maribor on a previous driving trip, so I emailed Mitja at Roundabout to see if we could see Bled, Borjn and the Gorge on a day trip out of Koper and they were very accommodating. Had an excellent quide that told us everything about Slovenian history, people and other areas of interest to my wife and I. He got us back at just the right time, even with the traffic and showed us all the sights with a fine Slovenian meal near Borjn (Strudel ). I would recommend them highly for other tours of Slovenia.

“Small groups and nice guides!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

I took both Alpine fairytale and Karst & Coast tours. One was better than the other. Both are perfect day out. Knowledgeable guides. But remember none of the entrance fees to attractions is included in the price which basically is for the vehicle and the guide/driver only. Best part is that the groups are small (< 8) and so the guide-tourist interaction is highly efficient.

“Perfect Day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

My husband and I went on the Alpine Fairytale tour in July. The day was perfect from beginning to end. Our guide Adrijana was lovely and gave us a wonderful insight into this beautiful country and the region in general. We loved Lake Bled and the castle. Lake Bohinj was also beautiful and not as busy. If you take this tour, I recommend you take your bathing suit and enjoy the activities on the lake. The highlight of the tour for us was Vintgar Gorge - stunning scenery around every corner. Our perfect day was capped off with a visit to Skofja Loka a picturesque medieval town. We hope to return to Slovenia and visit the caves. We will definitely use Roundabout Travel and request Adrijana - her enthusiasm was infectious. Thank you Adrijana. We hope you had a wonderful time at your brother's wedding!
