My husband and I spent two weeks on a private tour of Croatia and Slovenia with The Guide. It was the trip of a lifetime.
Jakov was very knowledgeable about world history, religion, culture, and geography. He was able to pull all the different pieces together into a consistent theme which made the trip all the more enjoyable and interesting. Marko had great perspective on world current event politics and changes happening inside Croatia. Both were excellent English speakers, great drivers, engaging and attentive to all our needs. We enjoyed spending a week with each of them. Jakov planned our entire trip of fantastic sights, tours, local lunches, and accommodations. We could not have been happier with the choices.
We first stayed in Zagreb, Croatia where we enjoyed a city tour of Zagreb, day trips to the Medieval Town of Samobor and to Trakoscan Castle. Next we traveled to Plitvice where we stayed 2 nights allowing us an entire day to enjoy Plitvice Lakes National Park - a highlight of the trip. Then our travels continued to Rovinj with a stop at Motovun, a hilltop village. Rovinj was a beautiful coastal town and we took day trips to the Roman amphitheater in Pula, and Tito's private island Brijuni. Then on toward Oprtalj with stops at Porec and Groznjan. Next we went toured Lipica stud farm and Postojna cave on our way to Ljubljana, Slovenia. Two nights in Ljubljana and we were on our way to Lake Bled which is a must-see. The boat trip to the island church and the hike around the lake up to the castle were the highlights. The Slovenian landscape is beautiful and we took day trips to hike to waterfalls, ride an aerial tram above Lake Bohinj and take long scenic drives along the Soca river and through the Julian Alps. There were so many beautiful sights and unexpected and fun stops along the way. Too many to recount. A private tour with The Guide was definitely an experience that exceeded all our expectations. We hope to come back again soon!
