Many, many thanks to Jernej for the fantastic tour yesterday. We arranged for a private tour, and we hoped to see my grandparents’ hometowns. No only did Jernej find the hometowns, he found their baptismal records, my grandpa’s twin brother’s grave, and even some long lost cousins that I’ve heard about but never met! We not only met them, but had dinner with them, and their families! Again, thank you, Jernej! Your went over and above our expectations.

Hi Susan and Bob, when I think of our journey I look up and say: Thank you, Universe :) This can happen just once in a lifetime I think... The story about how you found a photo of yourself in the house in the village in the part of the country you visited for the first time - this goes to the timeless memoirs and has already been told around the country... Hope see you soon doing some barbecue at (y)our family in Precetinci! Jernej Žakelj - Bart

By email exchange from Australia with Jernej, who was to be our guide and driver, we put together a private multi day custom tour of eastern Slovenia. Collecting us (2 people) from our hotel in Zagreb we were driven to Ljubljana , then to Lake Bled via Vintgar Gorge. Our tour took in the Vrsic mountain pass, Soca River, Brda wine region ( staying in Smarto), Kobarid War Museum, Predjama Castle, Skocjan Caves Lipica Stud Farm ( staying in Piran) and finally transferring to Rovinj via Istrian hill towns. In all our travels, Jernej selected routes that showcased the wonderful landscapes and small villages in Slovenia. Most of the roads were through the rural farming areas with little road traffic. This enhanced our experience and appreciation of Slovenia. Jernej, with his many connections gave us some wonderful insights into everday life in Slovenia that a tourist is rarely afforded.His extensive knowledge and experience stimulated many interesting discussions. In addition we were treated to an improptu lunch and wine tasting in the wonderful Jelenic Winery, another lunch and farm tour with one of his cousins (Viljem) and his family, and even a brief visit to his mother's 80th birthday party. And we can't help but mention our off road forest experience. This was a real bonus! The multi day tour arrangements went seamlessly .Both the transport and accommodation were excellent.The tour was very well organized and efficient. Jernej's personal approach was very engaging and stimulating throughout our tour exhibiting his extensive knowledge and experience of Slovenia and his great sense of humor. For us this delivered a wonderful and memorable experience of Slovenia. We would highly recommend this company led by the remarkable manager Jernej Zakelj.

Dear Robyn & Rod, what to say? I don't want Tripadvisor to waste all GB of web space for my letter of gratitude so I will just repeat the words from Rovinj: with deep respect and honour I'm looking forward for our next adventure! :) THANK YOU, Jernej Zakelj - Bart Loopy Slovenia

We only had a couple of days in Ljubljana part of our honeymoon from Australia. We chose to go on the Western Loop Tour so that we would see more of the wider Slovenia. We both highly recommend Loopy Tours and Jernej the tour was fantastic and surpassed our expectations. We saw so much over the course of the day and Jernej tailored the tour specifically to us, weather and best times to visit. We were there only ones on the tour so it was perfect. We had a lovely home made lunch in a small town, behind a door that looked like someone’s home and homemade brandy at another stop - we would of never found these otherwise or met all the wonderful locals along the way that we did. This tour was a truely unique experience and we had a fantastic time, if you are looking to see more of Slovenia the Ljubljana please contact loopy tours.

I had an amazing trip with Jernej. He is a very knowledgeable guide with vast experience. He takes you to both well known as well as to some "off beaten track" places. He makes the tour very interesting and keeps the guests engaged in every activity throughout the tour. Great tour company, I definitely recommend it. Adrian
