A day of intense rain unfortunately ... the visit was difficult but certainly not the fault of the guide but of the climatic conditions. The guide (Andrei if I remember the name correctly) was really nice and flexible towards us (Italians with guided tour in English ...). A praise to his sympathy and his ability to relate with us even in our language even if he was not required to do so ... The visit is interesting and full of notions and anecdotes about the history, habits and customs of Ljubljana and Slovenia . More than a visit dedicated to the monuments, it was a visit dedicated to the history and customs of the country. A guided tour, perhaps different from the usual, but no less interesting and pleasant. We certainly now have a more complete view of Slovenian customs, history and way of life. Andrei thank you for your sympathy and your jokes in perfect Italian. Thank you!

Wonderful walking tour that included many of the must see sites while including a plethora of information. Highly recommend!

Larissa was intelligent, witty and full of background information. She was also willing to share personal stories.

A great way to start a trip in this wonderful city. Finding out local history, stories and places of interest

Excellent tour by Urban Forester. Highly recommend it
