    What to Expect
    Meet your expert guide in front of your central Ljubljana hotel for your small-group day trip to Maribor, Ptuj and Jeruzalem. Latch your seatbelt aboard your air-conditioned vehicle and enjoy hearing about each destination’s Slovenian history as you cruise 1.5-hour to Maribor.
    Arrive in Maribor and stretch your legs by strolling the stony walkways that look out over the Drava River. As you approach the large square, Glavni Trg, observe the Baroque and neoclassical architecture and the regal town hall built during the Renaissance period. Then visit the cathedral, time-worn synagogue, and the oldest grape vine on the planet. Hear how this 400-year old vine still cultivates grapes.
    Stop to grab lunch before moving on to Ptuj. After a 30-minute cruise arrive in Ptuj, a small yet historic town originally settled by Celts and eventually taken control by Romans in the 1st century BC. Learn about the town’s rich culture like the 10-day long festival Kurentovanje an ancient Slavic pagan rite of spring and fertility. Then walk to the Ptuk Castle, near the Drava River, and hear about its Hungarian ancestry.
    Finally journey to Jeruzalem and experience a land discovered in the Middle ages by Crusaders returning from Jerusalem. Witness the Church of Mary of the Seven Sorrows which still attracts pilgrims who pay homage. While here, notice the hills covered in grapevines. Feeling inspired, head into the village and taste some local wines (own expense). Then hop back in the shuttle and head home to your hotel in Ljubljana.

    We are so glad we took this tour with Luka. He is informed, reflective, and responsive. When one detail went awry (not his fault), we were able to regroup and press on for a wonderful experience. Visited a Maribor vineyard for a tasting and, more...More
