What a fab day! Our guide Borut was superb!
Seeing that for me the whole point of the trip was based on seeing a photo of Lake Bled - as Borut kept saying "it was what I came for", but it was the Vintgar Gorge that blew me away! We practically had the place to ourselves - possibly coming in Oct could have been the reason but it was so very special.

As it was a small group, really small; there were just 3 of us, it was easy to bond and share experiences and it just felt like a day out with friends, which made it all so much nicer, the perfect chilled and relaxed tour, with stunning scenery to boot!

Would highly recommend. Would also like to add that Aljez, Operations Manager, was great with communication when it came to letting us know that timings of the tour had changed, felt very reassured. We just wish we had more time to explore other amazing places with Roundabout.

Be very careful of the manager of this tour by Roundabout Travel. When we suggested to the manager ALJAZ DVORSAK that the hotel pick up for us would be much more convenient SINCE IT’S ONLY 2-3 MINUTES AWAY BY CAR FROM MR. DVORSAK’S PICK UP BUS STOP POINT, THIS GUY WENT ON A PRIDEFUL TANTRUM, GOT VERY UPSET AND INSISTED WE WERE MAKING IT UNDOABLY DIFFICULT FOR THIS 7-10 HOUR-DURATION TOUR. UNBELIEVABLE. HE STARTED GIVING BOGUS EXCUSES ABOUT TRAFFIC AND INSISTED THAT HIS PICK UP POINT WAS CLOSE TO OUR HOTEL-TO WHICH WE SAID” that’s exactly our point”. He got more angry and accused us of very demanding on a 2 minute of his time. So, we decided to ok agree and kept our fully paid booking. So we looked for maybe a better tour and found one to compare plus pick up’s ok at our hotel. To our surprise, upon checking on our reservation again on this Roundabout tour to compare it with the other tour, we were shocked and surprised to learn and
find out that Mr. DVORSAK canceled our booking WITHOUT LETTING US KNOW! UNBELIEVABLE! Be very careful of this manager of Roundabout Travel in Ljubljana, Slovenia. I think he’s too proud of himself and does not care about the paying client, his employees , the company. We are booked with other Roundabout Travel tours in other countries and not a single problem. Only with this Mr. ALJAZ DVORSAK. He is disrespectful and could not even address us with our correct last name and kept confusing our other tour. We think he got upset on our 2 minute pick up suggestion and sneakily canceled our tour. We would have lost a valuable vacation day by not knowing he cancelled our booking. This manager is terrible. So unprofessional!
Just be careful. You are warned. We ended up booking with another company for less and they are willing to pick us up at our hotel.

Your reservation was cancelled due to harassment and unacceptable communication from you which was a breach of our general terms and conditions. The cancelation was processed by the Viator support. You were offered the most convenient pickup location and was politely explained several times that your demand cannot be met. Yet, he continued to do so in a very aggressive and insulting way, which was the reason we have asked Viator Supplier support to clarify what is Viator’s policy on such communication from the client upon which Viator support staff has terminated the reservation and refunded you. You made a vendetta against Aljaz personally for doing his job in line with our general terms and conditions. We are sorry to say that these kind of clients are not welcome in our company.

Roundabout travel is a great company with very flexible organization. I visited bled and Ljubljana through roundabout travel before from Zagreb and I decided to go to Slovenia again and spend few more days there. Then I booked another tour to lake bled and bohinj and did an amazing walk in vintage gorge with lovely waterfalls. This place is a hidden gem. The company was very flexible (special thanks to Mitja) who organized to join me with the tour coming from Zagreb on the same day so that I can return to Zagreb where my return flight will be. They are so flexible and they can tailor your tours according to your needs with very good prices. I totally recommend them. The tour guides Anamarija, Patrick and Dino were also great and very friendly. Thank you fir an amazing holiday with great memories.

Excellent tour, guide, and experience! Borut was a very kind and engaging guide, and made the entirety of the 10 hour tour entertaining. The tour exceeded my expectations, as not only were the locations we visited beautiful, but the tour was very well-organized and relaxed, and we learned a lot about the history of Slovenia and the places we were visiting. Everywhere we visited was even more beautiful than the last. Would highly recommend.

I had a great time - from pick up to drop off. There was just 2 of us in the tour, in a van with our tour guide Basja. He was very nice, a lot of trivia, fun facts and information about anything during the whole trip! He asked us if we want to try Slovenian food and of course we said yes! He took us to a nice local, not so touristy priced restaurant. He also took us to some nice spots where only locals were there! Mind blowing sceneries! I would recommend this tour!

I spent the day travelling around with my guide Michelle, and she made the whole experience something I will never forget.

She took me to see many different sites from Lake Bohinj to Waterfall Savica to Lake Bled. However the main stops on the way were not all there was to see, it was as much about the journey as it was the destinations.

Slovenia has some incredible sites to behold and the scenary all throughout the day left me blown away.
Driving through the deepest vallies and up the tallest mountains, it was a real adventure the whole way.

Due to the time of year and current events, we basically had every spot to ourselves without the hussle and bussle of noisy tourist spots and the benefit of this was how peaceful everything was.

Michelle is an incredibly friendly and kind person, full of knowledge and experience of Slovenia that she shares with you in an enthusastic and engaging way, she is perfect company for the trip.

This is an amazing day out which I highly reccomend to anyone visiting Slovenia.
I will absolutely be coming back to stay at Lake Bohinj next year for a relaxing camping holiday.

Thank you Michelle for touring me around Slovenia during my stay here. It has been one of the best ( or even, the best ) experience I have had travelling over the past few years.

Thank you for a wonderful review! I gues you both had a great day together :). You definitely had the most of this beautiful part of Slovenia with no people there in these times. And you are right! there is so much more than 'just' the Lake Bled in this region! That is why we think the full day tour is a must if you have time! All the best! Roundabout Slovenia Team!

This trip was the highlight of our time in Slovenia. Spending time by the lakes Bohinj and Bled was idyllic and ending the trip exploring the gorge in Radovna valley was just the icing on the cake. I highly recommend this trip if you are in Ljubljana. And Borut was a fantastic guide.

Thank you very much for your wonderful feedback! if there is time its always better to go on a full day tour instead of the half day, because we can show so much more. Like Vintgar Gorge or Bohinj Lake Thank you! we'll send Borut your compliments! Roundabout Travel team

The tour was just amazing. Mr. Borut, who was our driver and guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a good insight into the history of every place we visited, including the legends and fairytales.. Haha.. The scenic mountainous route to the lakes and Gorge is just mesmerising. One may be scared of the sharp turns and narrow roads, but I can assure you that Mr. Borut is an amazing driver and you are definitely safe in his hands. Haha.. I would definitely recommend this day trip to anyone visiting Slovenia.

We met our tour guide Drejc in Lubijana. We went first to Vintgar gorge and got there before it got really busy. Amazing. We had enough time to walk to the waterfall. Drejc was really knowledgeable about every to place we visited and we never felt rushed or pressured. He even took us to some places that weren't on the tour that we showed an interest in that were on the way back. This was without doubt one of the best tours we had ever taken.
