Our half day trip today was great and our guide Tine (hope I get the name right) was excellent!
We got picked up at a location we selected. First we drove to Postojna cave and on the way Tine told us a lot about Slovenian history and history of Postojna caves.
The caves are magnificent and even all the other tourist's didn't bother the experience. There's no words to describe it you just have to go and see them yourself.
After the caves we drove to the Predjama castle which is a castle in a cave. Castle was great but if you're afraid of heights, maybe it's not your place. I couldn't climb the stairs to the highest places :)
After the trip we got dropped off to our apartment as we wished.
Can't praise enought our guide. First I tought that he studies history but he just is passionate about history and his country. Recommend him highly!

A group of us went on the Alpine Fairytale Tour to Lake Bled. Our tourguide, Tjasa, provided wonderful commentary on the history, climate and region. Tjasa was extremely flexible and found a way for us to take row boats across Lake Bled instead of taking the usual piloted boat. This added an extra layer of adventure for us. Furthermore, Tjasa was extremely knowledgeable about the culture. One of my favorite things she did was explain the culture and folklore of some of the items we were viewing in the gift shops and she explained many of the exhibitions in the museum. This was a great way for us to see this area of Slovenia. I highly recommend it!

We thoroughly enjoyed two tours with Roundabout: the Alpine Fairytale tour and the Karst and Coast tour. Both tours proved to be highlights of our trip around Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia. The guides (Tjasa and Adrianna) respectively were friendly and knowledgeable; special mention should go to Tjasa in particular, with whom we were the only visitors but she entertained us throughout the day and was happy to base the schedule of the day on our own wishes. We could not have enjoyed both tours any more - I would recommend them unreservedly. There is no better way to see many sites in this beautiful country without having a car, and even then you would miss out on the local knowledge and opinions of the excellent guides.

Roundabout Travel was an excellent choice for us to be able to see the Postojna Caves and the Predjama Castle. Roundabout was very accommodating to us. We had already visited Lake Bled so didn't need the Fairytale tour so they let us jump in and do a half day tour for the caves and castle. Matjaz was our guide and we could not have asked for a more professional and knowledgeable person to take us on our tour. His knowledge of Slovenian history helped us to understand and appreciate Slovenian culture. He was kind and had a great sense of humor! The price of the tour was very reasonable in that it included the entrance fees for both of the attractions. I highly recommend this tour company!

We spent a fabulous day touring the caves and castle with "Matt" as our guide. We were picked up on time in a very nice car and off we went with two young men form France, and started enjoying our tour immediately due to the vast knowledge of our guide and the interplay of all of us communicating, asking questions, and not to mention the other worldy beauty of Slovenia. I have always had a very difficult time understanding the Balkan wars but with the help of our guide and his explanations of that war I now feel free to participate in discussions surrounding that terrible time in history. Matt was superb, his humor had a dry edge to it, and he genuinely seems to love his country that was infectious to all of us. The tours are a bit hard for a budget that is to say the least based on economics but make the leap and sign up for one of their tours-it is an experience well worth every cent.
