Best tour guide ever!!
I signed up for a tour of Maribor and Ptuj, and it ended up being a private tour. It was amazing!

Barbara K. was an incredible guide, and in all of my travels, I haven’t had a guide who was so informed. She was great at explaining culture, politics, religion, etc.. with such ease. What’s even better is that she enjoyed it!

I recommend going to other parts of Slovenia besides Bled and the Caves although they were stunning. Maribor and Ptuj were different, and I thought I got a great picture of the country as a whole. This was a 5 Star tour!!!! Definitely ask for Barbara K. when you go!!

Hi, marisac30, Thank you very much for your review and for choosing us as your travel companion. I agree that you can get a lot of positive experience and see a lot of interesting things out of the casual tourist locations in Slovenia (such as Bled and Postojna) and we are glad that you liked the tour and Barbara K so much. You are always welcome to travel with us in the future Kind regards ! Lan Lajovic

Ptuj Castle and the Monastery worthwhile
Sep 2018 • Couples
Enjoyed the museum exhibits at Ptuj Castle. Monastery fascinating. Since the area is quite far from Ljubljana, too much of the day is spent driving.

Hi FredfromRichmond! Thank you for your review. It is nice to hear you enjoyed the sights, despite the long drive from Ljubljana. I do hope you still had time to discover everything Maribor has to offer and made some nice memories along the way. Even the drive there offers plenty of amazing views. Hopefully you were happy with your guide as well and would recommend the tour. Until next time. Kind regards, Rok
