Exactly what we wanted for having only a few days in Ljubljana. Provided what we needed to know about how to spend our time. It was a very congenial international group of only 8 people. We highly recommend this tour.

Outstanding overview of Ljubljana’s historical center. Nives was engaging, thoroughly professional, warm and so gracious—we can’t imagine a better introduction to Ljubljana. Our group was not small, but Nives made sure we were all engaged from start to finish. Highly recommend this experience.
