About CurioCity
Here at CurioCity we are not such a fan of the typical tour. We focus less on the buildings and landmarks, and more on the people living here and their stories. Your visit shouldn't just be about sightseeing- Ljubljana should be seen, touched, smelled, heard and tasted. This is where we come in. We believe that bigger isn’t always better, so our groups are always kept small and intimate. Experiences should be less like “tours”, and more like real-life human-beings exploring a city together, seeing the side of Ljubljana that often remains undiscovered by tourists At CurioCity we won’t: Bore you with excessive facts and figures and obsess over dead people, Repeat the same old scripted tours over and over and over, no matter who’s in the group, Or use a flag on a stick to herd you around Ljubljana. But we promise: We will show you Ljubljana like we, the locals, see it We will tailor your experience to suit you as best as we can. No two tours will be exactly the same. We will reveal interesting stories from our capital city, and the people living here. We believe that it’s our responsibility, as locals, to help this city thrive so we’ve decided to run CurioCity as a non-profit organisation. We are privileged to know local, independent social businesses, who are so often missed by passing tourists. When you book with us you directly support these locals. You can make memories on our walks, while making a real difference here in Ljubljana. This is how we do it. Run by locals, supporting locals, creating locals.As our slogans says: "Arrive as a tourist, leave as a local."

Had a great orientation of Ljubljana with Tjasa today. Firstly we were late as we got stuck at the Austria/Slovenia border, but Tjasa was really understanding and started the trip 1 hour later for us. We were shown around the medieval and Roman parts of the town and saw some interesting historical and architectural sights, learning about the various periods in Slovenia’s history. Tjasa was very knowledgable about this. On top of it all we saw and sampled some great local foods, and had many recommendations for our next few days here. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend, thanks !

I did the 'From Ljubljana with Love' Tour with Peter in August and it was absolutely fantastic. He was friendly, knowledgeable and went above and beyond to show my friend and I some of the city's artistic highlights afterwards on his own time. Being very environmentally conscious and interested in the sustainability initiatives of other cities, I was very impressed and this tour was by far my favorite one of all the tours I have done in Europe thus far. Thank you again Peter and CurioCity for offering tours like this!

It has been a pleasure to take you around Ljubljana and 'make you a local' - it appears we have succeeded in showing you a 'local' side of Ljubljana. Come again!

I did the From Ljubljana with Love tour and loved it! I happened to be the only one, so Tjasa, my guide, really took the time to go into depth about the topics that interested me in particular, even when I had questions that were beyond what the tour normally covers. I had a brilliant time, and I felt like I learned so much more about the city and how it “ticks” than I could have done on other tours. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who’s interested in ecology, sustainable and inclusive businesses and getting a personalized (and fun!) tour experience.

In August 2017, we did the tour 'From Ljubljana with love' with CurioCity. This special tour takes you around the Old Town of Ljubljana to discover the local, social and sustainable initiatives in the city. It is a different way of exploring a city. We loved it! Our guide Peter is the right man to take you around, he is very passionate about the projects and he knows how to entertain you for a few hours. This tour is recommended to do in small groups of 2-6 persons and Peter did not watch his clock and was even eager to explain more about Ljubljana and Slovenia than the foreseen time. We would like to thank him for his passion, his effort and time and his personal point of view on sustainability on Ljubljana. This tour is overall a great recommendation for tourists who are eager to go off of the beaten tourist track and experience the real local atmosphere! To be honest, it is a must-do for every tourist! Great job, CurioCity!

The sustainability tour I did was great and definitely exceeded my expectations. I have a done a lot of tours in European cities and have to say this is one of the best. The guide was very knowledgeable and tailored the tour to the groups likes and interests.
