As a solo female traveler, I wholeheartedly recommend this tour - I had such a good experience! Our group was small just me and a pair of friends (also female). Klemen allowed me to sit up front and pepper him with all my questions about Slovenia - the economy, the culture, the history, current international relations. He was friendly, provided great information at each stop, always made sure the van was cool enough when we got in, and would answer any questions we had, as well. Very focused on trying to help each guest have the experience they want!

Roundabout Tours was a great company to deal with in general. Easy to book, accurate information, and they quickly refunded the amount of an activity that was unavailable.

Due to unusual circumstances our tour was delayed 3hrs, however, Roundabout Travel worked with us to provide a memorial trip. I can't stress enough how amazing Klemen, our tour guide was. Even though it was his day off and he was asked last minute to replace our original tour guide, he did so happily and with great enthusiasm. Klemen made sure we still saw everything we were supposed to see, without feeling rushed. It was like spending the day with a good friend who happened to know a lot about the history, geography, wine, and much more of his country. Slovenia is a beautiful country and this trip allowed us to explore and experience a small part of it. I would definitely book another trip through Roundabout and would love to have Klemen guide me through other regions of the country.

The tour was supposed to start at 8:30 and yet nobody showed up to the pick up point. After a few calls I started to worry, I’m not sure who I spoke to but they were very apologetic and told me that the tour guide had set off but now wasn’t in contact and hadn’t picked any one else up for the tour.

Within an hour they had sorted another tour guide for us to come at 11:30. I was slightly worried at this was to be a 10.5 hour tour so I looked like I was going to miss out on some destinations.

Our tour guide arrived, his name was Klemen. He was supposed to be on his day off and yet he was very willing to push the time of the tour later to allow us all to see all the destinations.

Klemen was very informative, he made this a day to remember for me and I think the other guests.

He also took us through a few other spots on the way back which was the cherry on the top.

The only disappointing part was the three hour wait which obviously took away any plans for the evening.

Other than that it was great. Thank you very much Klemen

Borut was a knowledgeable, passionate, and friendly guide who allowed us some flexibility with the schedule after only myself and my husband had booked on the tour that day. We found the pacing of the day and variety of sights to be enjoyable and it did not feel too hectic or tiring as some long day trips can be. A great way to see more of this wonderful country without needing to hire a car or spent a long time on public transport!

It was only the two of us so the tour was more flexible timewise. The weather was nice, and the day worked out perfectly. The guide, Yan, took us right on time to the cave for the 10 o'clock guided tour. We could spend more time in Piran so we had enough time for lunch and sightseeing. We got back to hotel about 1 hour earlier than expected. I would definitely recommend it for anyone who wants both cave and seaside village experience in one day.

We have made multiple trips to Slovenia and have always rented a car and did the driving at our own pace. The stop at Lipica Stud Farm is a must with an excellent performance similar to the Spanish riding school in Vienna. You must check the performance schedule for times and dates. The Skocjan caves are definitely must stop kids and adults will enjoy .They as well as the Postonja caves and castle are located in the Karst region that also is home to many good wineries and restaurants. Piran is an old Venetian town that exudes charm and well worth the walk around. One thing to note is you will park outside the town and either walk in or take a shuttle. Enjoy ! Zivjo!

A lovely day out with roundabout travel, especial as the weather in Ljubljana was due to be very wet and the South coast had lovely blue skies. Due to it being out of season and we were the only couple on the tour our driver was able to adapt our tour and we were able to spend more time at the stud farm in exchange for less time at piran. Of course if there had been others on the trip we may well have had to make do with just viewing the horses from a road way stop instead of a actual visit to the the farm. The caves were not suitable for me as I am disabled, but I enjoyed a coffee and the views whilst hubby did the 1.5hr trip into the caves.

Skocjan caves were one of the greatest things i have ever seen. Our guide, Borina, was simply fantastic aswell. Showed us a lot of stuff, while also giving us freedom to explore on our own. The group that was in the car that day was also simply amazing. One of the best trips i have been on!

Activity packed, comprehensive tour with an amazing guide Borina! Very personalized experience with Borina. She is very knowledgeable of the history, culture and the local area. What'a great treat to get the local's perspective of the history and current perspective. The most impressive caves I have seen, not to be missed. We stopped by Lipica and was able to see a herd of horses drinking water and relaxing. Then spent a few hours by the beach in Piran. We also stopped by a local place for some wine, cheese, and prosciutto, olive oil. This is a great intro to the Slovenian country side. Just so beautiful to get out of the city and see the landscape.

I spent about 10 days in Slovenia, with a full week hiking in the Alps. The trip to the Skocjan caves is amazing. You can skip the Postojan caves if you do so one. Piran is a real gem. This was a real highlight for me and I'm so glad I did this trip. The Skocjan cave system is really out of this world. You look below and see this Class V river and the way they designed the walkway through the cave system is something else. And you get to see the Predjama castle as well. Really a must do trip.
