We did the half day tour from Ljubljana to Bled. Pickup from a local hotel was super smooth, and our ride was short and enjoyable, our guide Borut taught us about some local sites along the way and other interesting things about Slovenia. Once at Bled, was a nice blend between tour and downtime to explore at the castle and island. Very dreamy to see, highly recommend this tour if you don’t have a car!

Not happy with the service and attitude.

Driver arrived late. We had to wait 40 minutes without notice. I had to call them multiple times and sometimes they didn’t even answer me. The lake was beautiful but it would have been better if they made it on time. It’s half day tour so time punctuation is very important cos we only had some time in the morning there.

We had a great time with Yan and the 4 other parties in our group of 6 to Lake Bled. Saw the castle then went down to the lake and half of us went to the island and the other half went swimming. Yan was very knowledgeable and gave us history on the language and the area. He was also funny and sharp. Excellent guide, and we also really got along with the other members of our group.

Miha was an amazing tour guide! He provided great recommendations so we could make the most of our time. We traveled with our 3 small children - ages 6, 4, and 1 - and the tour was perfect for our family. The company provided car seats which made it very easy for us to enjoy with no added stress. We loved it!

The tour was excellent and our guide, Sanjin, was very friendly and knowledgeable. He was happy to answer all our questions and he tailored the tour to our interests. He even recommended a restaurant in Ljubljiana which we went to that evening. The lake was beautiful, especially as the sun came out when we were on the Island and the monastery was worth visiting for the views alone. Highly recommended

The winter tour should be in the morning and summer in the afternoon. By the time we got to the castle it was getting dark and totally dark when we reached the small village. The guide was very good but left us at the castle for an hour even though my wife could not go into the castle as the slopes were too steep. The guide was aware of my wifes disabilities.

The Trip was a bit of a disappointment for me even tho our guide was very friendly and helpful and gave lots of information about Slovenian culture . Lake Bled is extremely touristic place and we couldn't avoid the mass .

Shane M

Lake Bled was absolutely beautiful, but the bus tour was quite rushed. Taking a boat over to the island was mega expensive and not good value for money. Bit of a ripoff actually. This is one of those tours where you have your hand in your pocket constantly paying for extras. We found out that our guide rushed us through so she could get to her next assignment. Not good thing to find out when you have paid a lot for the tour. In summary, the scenery was excellent but the tour was not.

What a fantastic day! Our tour guide was Luca, and he was absolutely fantastic. He knows so much about the local area, and cares to speak to every single person after every stop and ask how they liked the things they saw. It may seem like there are too many stops for a single day tour but we never felt rushed and didn't end the day thinking like we didn't see enough. There are places for water and snacks at every stop for children. We opted to skip the boat to the island and enjoy the water as it was mid August and very hot. Every location is indescribably beautiful and worth the stop. Enjoy the trip and enjoy the fascinating facts Luca has to offer. Worth the cost 100 percent.

This trip was a once in a lifetime experience! I'm quite impressed with our tour guide, Tjasa with her knowledge and the organization of our itinerary. It almost felt like it was a private tour since the number of people was limited to a maximum of 8 there were only 5 of us in the trip for convenience. Tjasa had always been flexible and accommodating of our questions and have made sure that we have an opinion on the flow of the trip. The sceneries we've been to were incomparable! I would highly recommend this trip and the agency, Roundabout and of course, our tour guide, Tjasa for anyone who would like to have a glimpse of Slovenia.
