Venice/Postojna Caves Tour/Venice, all in one afternoon???

Next April, we are going to be on a 12-day tour through Slovenia and Croatia. It originates and ends in Venice. On our last day, in Venice, we have some time to explore. We have already been to Venice before and would like to take a day/afternoon trip to the caves in Postojna on our last day of the trip. Are there any bus tours from Venice to the caves, and is it possible to go from Venice to the caves, see the tour, which I believe is 1 1/2 hours long, and return to Venice later that same day?

Thanks!

Postojna lies across the border well to the east of Trieste so in no way possible to get to Postojna and back in an afternoon. You would be well advised to stay in Venice and see a little more of this great city - there is an awful lot to see and do in Venice and its lagoon!

If you have your heart set on visiting the cave, you could look into the boats that run from Venice over to Piran, and then look for transport to the cave. The boat takes about 2 hours each way. The bus would be another hour or so from Piran. It would make for a full day, but could be done if the timetables work for you.
