You should definitely do this tour! We went on this with Maja as our guide and she was truly excellent, we think she is awesome! Really good pace to the day as you do a lot between a Ljubljana tour and Lake Bled. One thing is that Ljubljana has a great food market on Fridays where restaurants do a bit of a street food fair and if your schedule allows, going on Friday was particularly fun for us! Also, Maja is super informative, very friendly, and just a great tour guide all-around!

0ur trip was was wonderful. We really enjoyed everything and especially Nina the driver and tour guide. She was a fabulous driver and had so much knowledge about the area and the history of Slovenia. We had an unforgettable trip with Nini and would love to come back in the future! Slovenia is a beautiful country ad Nini gave us enough free time to really relax as well as gain so muck knowledge about the area.
