Tour Reviews

Reviews for The Beauty of Slovenia & Lake Bled

Date of tour: October 2016

None of our U3A group had ever been to Slovenia before so we didn’t know what to expect. Our 4* hotel at Lake Bled was only a 45 minute drive from the airport and had a truly magical setting, with both alpine and lake views towards the iconic church on the island. Our tour included visits right across Slovenia from the alpine countryside around Lake Bled to the flatter areas towards the Adriatic and the resorts of Piran and Portoroz, also taking in the capital Ljubljana with its riverside cafes, churches and markets. Some of us also went to the amazing Postojna cave complex close to the Italian border. Everybody was impressed with Slovenia, a small country with a small population, where everyone was welcoming and friendly. This holiday was voted by our group as one of the best ever thanks largely to our superb local tour guide and driver as well as all the arrangements provided by Tailored Travel.
