We booked a half day trip to the Postojna Cave and Predjama Castle with Slovenia Explorer at the last minute (for the next day) and so pleased we did. Our driver and guide Tine picked us up close to our hotel and we travelled in a small, comfortable coach (8 seats). We headed for the Cave first and then the Castle. Tine gave us an insight on Slovenian culture and history, as we travelled through this beautiful country. We enjoyed the stories of fact and legend, recounted with humour. The Caves and the Castle were amazing, in their own ways. We bought the combination ticket for entry to both, which we would recommend you do. The trip was relaxed, with time built in for refreshments and comfort breaks. The trip was 8.30am to 13.30pm and we were dropped off back where we joined the trip, while some of the passengers continued on to Lake Bled (as part of the day trip). Kvala Tine for looking after us and for the Ljubljana wine bar recommendations. Kvala Slovenia Explorer.

The cave and the cassel are a good way to spend a day in the area. For bought tours we took the audio guide and it was perfect. The cave is beautiful. The tour starts by train tour and when you think it's beautiful you get out and start to explore the halls. Exploring the castle with the audio guide feels like living there.

The best part of the tour was the tour guide. Barbara L. took extra time to explain everything in great detail. She included Slovenian history and culture, local legends, and a bit about herself and family at my asking. An excellent tour guide that made the Postojna and Predjama excursions more enjoyable.

We were advised that the caves and castle were 'must see' sights in Slovenia, so we found a tour that combined them in half a day. On the day, there were only 4 of us on the tour, run by Vesna. The journey to the cave was about 45 minutes from Ljubljana in a very comfortable minibus.

The caves were vast and stunningly beautiful. They were accessed by a short train ride, then a walk of about an hour, followed by a train ride back to the entrance.

The castle was also very interesting.

Excellent tour, highly recommended.

Hi, we made this tour with Tomaz, who gave the most of himself to let us spend a wonderful day. He is a real sophisticated guide and very amusing! This tour is great to know two of the jewels of Slovenia. It is well organized, with good explanations and the caves and castle are very, very interesting places. Going with Explorer Tours gives you the comfort of being driven, forgetting about public transport. It is important to arrive at the caves at the right time in order to start the guided tour at the right moment. So, if you go with this tour you don’t have to worry about anything, it’s pure pleasure. Spend a bit more and enjoy your time fully! Thanks Tomaz, we loved your comments!

Visited Predjama Castle with Nina who gave us some interesting information about Slovenian history on the way. Postojna Caves are truly amazing. With Nina's help we did not have to spend much time waiting to go for caves tour. We did not have to worry about catching public transport. Lovely tour and guide.

A world heritage site !! What was most fascinating was that visitors are taken inside the cave by a train !! The thought of going inside the cave by train raised my imagination. The formation of limestone rocks are worth seeing. The place is very well and efficiently managed !!!

We had a great morning visiting the caves and castle and our guide was extremely knowledgeable and drove us safely from Ljubljana too the two destinations however, despite these two positives, her other actions have left me with a little bit of a sour taste in the mouth. She seemed a little disinterested at times which is a pity because as mentioned already, she was very knowledgeable but when asked questions, she was a little abrupt. When in postojna castle, she would give descriptions of the various parts of the castle and then leave the group enter rooms by themselves to have a look instead of continuing her excellent description by walking with us into the rooms. At the end of the castle tour, she left us climb too the top ourselves after she gave her description and then informed us she was going for coffee. I mean everyone deserves a break and I certainly don’t begrudge her that but it was just a tour guiding technique I’d never come across before and it all felt rather clinical.

However, what I really disliked was the hard sell that she gave about a trip that was happening the next day. I certainly don’t blame the guides for doing this, at the end of the day it’s a business and they need to make money, but she asked everyone individually if they were going to go the next day and it just made an awkward atmosphere as people had been put on the spot. I don’t have a problem with them promoting other aspects of the business and if she had just given a general description too everyone that would have been great but putting people on the spot was quite unfair especially as we had already paid a significant cash sum already that morning.

I like to be fair to companies and from reading other responses here, the vast majority have a far more positive experience than me so perhaps I just caught the guide on a bad day.

Nina, our guide, provided the five of us with an excellent overview of the geology, geography and history of Slovenia as we drove toward the caves. We enjoyed the ultimate in cave systems, before being personally guided by Nina through the Predjama castle, with explanations on the known, and surmised history of the unique rock interfaced castle. We travelled at our own pace, very much appreciating the additional time, flexibility, and local information and insights Nina gave us a long the way. A highly recommended trip.
