    Lake Bled
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission excluded
    Small group approach with carefully planned time, where experienced local tour operator’s chauffeur guide will collect you at designated location for an informative hourly ride to mountainous Alpine region to visit Bled. Upon arrival you will be introduced to destination and possible activities to experience: Take a short walk along the lake shore. The beauty of the surrounding mountains reflects on the lake surface. Throughout the year visitors will enjoy the peace of the lake and fresh air. Climb atop a steep cliff more than 100m above the lake, Bled Castle is how most people imagine a medieval fortress to be, with towers, ramparts, moats and a terrace offering magnificent views. The castle houses a unique treasure - a reconstructed Gutenberg's wooden printing press on which the master printer will demonstrate old printing techniques using hand-made paper. On the lake shore take 'pletna' handmade wooden traditional boat to the lake island. Rowers still use man power as in old days, making your experience more memorable. The tiny, tear-shaped island beckons from the shore and the ride with the 'pletna' boat is a real thrill. Climb atop 99 stairs and ring a bell for your wishes to come true. Upon return from the island stop at the local patisserie and take a break; taste Bled’s famous cream cake – kremšnita. Since the last 60 years, as many as 12 million cream cakes have been sold. Try it yourself. After a nice half day experience we will return back to Ljubljana. Drop off will be at same location as pick up. Castle entrance & guided tour 20,00€ Pletna boat ride 15,00€ Island Bled Church entrance, Luck Bell 6,00€ Vintgar Gorge 20,00€

We left Portoroz, which is on the west coast, and drove to Lake Bled on the way to Ljubljana. It was raining lightly during the first week in May. Our guide took us to Vila Bled for their famous cream cake and coffee. The portions are very generous so you can share. After the

Response from Excursion140404, General Manager at Lake Bled Half Day Excursion from Ljubljana
Responded 17 Jun 2019
Dear whatsername625, we understand your personal frustration, but we can not do anything to solve it. All our tours have min no of participants, in your case 4, and you were the only one booked for that tour. We are not hiding that fact but quite contrary it is stated at every level, even at your voucher/ticket. By EU legislation which we are part of, we have full right to cancel a tour 24 hours before execution if there is no enough clients booked. Same as you have an option to cancel your reservation within 24 hours. In your case we tripled this time informing you about cancellation 72 hours due to execution of the tour. Mybe you should mention how you wanted to negotiate booking a private option with paying only extra 2 additional seats, reaching number 3, but you did not want to pay extra 3 seats to reach minimum number 4 to execute the tour. And this was the main purpose why you got angry with us, as we did not allow you to extort us. We are glad that you managed to do it by your self, but again you showed lack of respect for people working in tourism to provide service on 24 December - I am sorry but there is no free lunch in Slovenia. Milan Arsic, GM

We booked this tour well in advance knowing it might be cancelled if there were insufficient numbers. No-one else booked but Milan ran a personal tour for us for which we were very grateful. He was extremely knowledgeable about Slovenia and shared that with us on the drive out

We travelled a bit out of the tourist season and were the only two passengers on the minibus and our driver Milan gave all his attention to us. Lovely day out and we took the boat to the island and walked back to Bled centre. It was nice to have our guide all to ourselves and
