We had a great day exploring Lake Bled and Ljubljana when our cruise ship stopped in Koper. Mauricio was our guide and had extensive knowledge of the region. Lake Bled is quite picturesque and easy to get around. Our group chose to visit the castle rather than be rowed out to the island. It was a good choice for us. Although there were some rather steep inclines, and we were a group of seniors, we enjoyed exploring the castle. We especially enjoyed the delicious typical Slovenian desert we ate while enjoying the views at the top. Ljubljana is an interesting city to explore. Mauricio shepherded us all through the city pointing out important sites while providing lots of historical information. It was a wonderful experience, and I could not say enough about everything Peter, the owner of this small company, did to communicate with me from booking to follow up after the trip.

We were picked up from our cruise ship in Trieste, had a customized itinerary where we saw the Caves and Castle in Slovenia, as well as the lipizzaner horses, and had a local lunch before being dropped off at the airport to continue our journey. Peter was very knowledgeable of the area and its history, with well spoken english. Good communication on the front end. Comfortable large van. Would recommend for shore excursion or cruise transfers.

We had a lovely private tour to Bordon Winery and Piran. Peter worked very hard to arrange this tour and all the details from the winery visit tasting and visit visit and lunch in Piran were perfect! The day was one of the highlights of our vacation. We would definetly use this tour company again and not hesitate to recommend it to other travelers. Marla and Pete

Ljubljana and Lake Bled are two must see sights in Slovenia and this trip was a great way to see them both. In one day trip. Shame we couldn’t have spent longer at each destination, but a great sampler. Pickup right at cruise terminal by the delightful Damir. One hour trip to Ljubljana, with drop off at beautiful castle overlooking town for 2 hours in our own time. Would have been better if we’d been given more information en route and a free tourist map. Stunning city, clean, beautiful and with no cars. Then 45 minutes to Lake Bled which was gorgeous. We were given over one hour, enough time to take the boat trip to the church and to ring the bell and climb the bell tower. Then quick trip to the castle with stunning views over lake. Our guide was happy to give us as much time as we wanted. Thirty minutes was rushed but enough. With the 90 minute ride back to Koper total excursion time was 9 hours, crossing this scenic small country from the sea in the south to the alps in the north. Fabulous and much cheaper than a ship-organised trip (and on our cruise the combo to both places wasn’t offered). Thoroughly recommended.

So my friend and I were very fortunate to be the only 2 people on a full day tour to Lake Bled and Ljubljana from Trieste. Peter picked us up at our Airbnb right on schedule - he was so warm and friendly and had water waiting for us in the van. Additionally he asked if we needed coffee and he made a stop for us. The ride was filled with the history of Slovenia and Istria-Peninsula. I learned about the great leader TITO and about the many hands that Croatia, Slovenia, and Trieste were part of. Peter was perfect in every aspect - his historical background and enthusiasm made the experience 100x better than what we had expected. Both places are gorgeous. You get ample time in both areas and easy pickup when you are ready. Peter took us to an authentic Slovenian restaurant where we learned the proper table manners when "cheering" with someone from Slovenia. The whole trip was honestly amazing and I wish Peter could be my tour guide for all other things!

We booked this as a private shore excursion and it was perfect. They were on time and professional, and packed a lot of fun into our day. We learned a lot about the area, got to see a lot, and got to enjoy the food. Great choice!

Four of us (adults) were on a Dalmatian Coast cruise and did not want to be part of the cruise excursion herd, so, based on the glowing reviews on Trip Advisor for Slovenia Day Trip Tours and Excursions, we sent an inquiry to Peter about three months in advance. Peter was so timely and thorough with his responses. He did his utmost best to create a 3/4-day excursion that would be exactly what we desired (basically a combination of his 4-hour Piran & Scenic Drive through the Slovenian Coastline Tour AND his Ultimate Culinary and Wine Experience of Slovenia Tour. It was perfect!

On the day of our ship's arrival into Koper, Peter met us in his very comfortable 8-passenger Renault minivan, right on time, as we exited the ship's gangway. First, he drove us through the very pretty countryside just outside of Koper, to a charming little family-run winery, Vina Bordon, in the delightful village of Dekani. The winery property was actually an old mill along edge of the quaint and lovely Rizana river. The place was so picturesque....we loved it.

[Note: During our wine tasting tour, we learned that, in addition to the on-property winery, the homestead offers accommodations for several persons in a stylish apartment. While we didn't have a peak at the lodging accommodations, it certainly seemed like this might make a nice place to stay for a couple of relaxing days.]

Our wine tasting guide was so interesting and we very much enjoyed our private 90-minute wine tasting experience....so much so that each of us bought a few bottles of Bordon wine to take back to the ship and carry with us to enjoy after the cruise. Here, not only did we get to taste 6 to 8 different wines during our wine tasting experience, we also had the chance to enjoy local prosciuttos, cheeses, and breads between pours.

After our wine tasting experience, we drove to the Slovenian coastline and on to the darling little seaside village of Piran. Here, Peter dropped us off for about an hour so we could explore this beautiful little village at our own pace and do some shopping in the adorable shops (in the few that were open that early in the season). Note....this village might also make a very nice place to spend a few relaxing days next time you're in the area.

After departing Piran, we drove through the posh casino enclave of Portorose, Slovenia [note: depending on your desires, Portorose might ALSO make a great place to spend a few days if you are into a little more exciting night life and the thrills of gambling]. Once through Portorose, we were on our way to lunch (another culinary adventure) at Peter's favorite restaurant, Dobrodosli, in the village of Marezige.

Our lunch was huge....more than we could possibly eat after tasting all the prosciuttos and cheeses at Bordon (and we had even skipped breakfast, knowing we were to have a day of culinary adventure). Never-the-less, lunch was terrific and very "homey". The assortment of culinary delights served here were outstanding. By the time dessert was served we wanted to decline, but the dessert was so beautiful, we just had to eat that, too! What a great way to learn about Slovenian food. Peter certainly knows his stuff about food and wine and charming Slovenian places to explore.

We can't give Peter enough praise for the wonderful day he created for us. We felt as though we got to know a great deal about this part of Slovenia, with this in-depth exposure to the people, their culture and their food. Peter himself was such a fun yet professional guy to spend a day with. We very much enjoyed his company and really appreciated all he taught us about his beloved and beautiful country. Slovenia is truly a beautiful place and Slovenia Daytrip Tours and Shore Excursions is a great first step to taking it all in. There is much to be proud of here.

We highly recommend Peter and his company, Slovenia Daytrip Tours. We hope you will love it as much as we did.

We booked this excursion as a day trip for our cruise and it turned out even better than we had hoped! Peter was attentive communicator prior to our trip and met us right on time at the port. Our driver Bojan was informative and friendly. The Postojna Caves were stunning! On Peter's recommendation, we decided to tour the Predjama Castle instead of just taking the photo op and were so glad that we did! It is stunning and honestly such a cool place. Bojan took us to a local restaurant in the town of Marezige where we had a delicious lunch with local wine. We made it back to port in plenty of time and were able to walk around Koper town square. Highly recommend!

I cannot say enough of how amazing this tour was. I did a custom tour with Peter as our guide. He started helping me plan from the minute I contacted him and we designed a perfect private tour that included Lake Bled, lunch and cave tour. The country is beautiful and getting to know our guide and learning about his country made the experience even more special. Peter took all my concerns about parents mobility and capabilities and we were taken care off from the moment we stepped off the ship.

Do yourself a favor design your own tour with private guide to make the absolute most out of your time and actually connect to where you are. His van was very modern, super clean and comfortable.

Thank you again Peter and hope to visit again someday!
