I just wanted to send you a quick email to say a big thank you to you and Jernej for organising the bear safari so well, it was an amazing experience! Jernej was great and even though we were delayed due to bad traffic on the day made sure everything ran as smoothly as possible and that there was a back up plan to go another day in case we were too late.
Thank you again and I will certainly be booking with you again on my next trip to Slovenia.

What a fantastic trip! Overall, Slovenia is one of the prettiest countries we as a family have visited together and working with your company truly made the experience authentic and more of an adventure than a tourist trip.We touched on a lot at the farewell dinner, but below is just overall feedback.
- Starting in a major city and working out to the farm/ country side of Austria and Slovenia
- Sound of music tour was good, but there does need to be a bit more, which is why going to the Eagles Nest was perfect *recommend for other travelers
- Farm house in Slovenia - Definitely we could have spent another day just relaxing there or walking to the nearby river
- Sailing - Breaks up the trip from walking tours and museums and got us out on the water
- Staying in Trieste was the best option out of all the towns visited
- Dinner at Stari Podrum - One of the best
- Cave experience
- Visiting the mountain towns
Thank you again! Great experience.

Hi Andrej - we are in Verona & wonder if you know a guide such as you or
Vence (yesterday in Slovenia - he is top notch excellent!!) We would like to
go on a guided tour on Monday somewhere around here? Do you know someone we
could contact ? Today is a magnificent day in Verona. We have just finished a wonderful tour with Cecelia. She is delightful & we walked all over Verona with her & learnt so much more.Please tell her that we are delighted with her & she is a lovely person.Many thanks for the recommendation.

Just a note to express our praise and admiration for our wonderful driver and guide, Mr. Vienceslas Wendt, who picked us up at the Savoia Excelsior Plaza Hotel October 20 and took us to Ljubljana.
We enjoyed so much everything he showed and told us about there.
Unfortunately, as we were preparing to leave, I had an accident at a hotel there and he wisely decided we should go to the Hospital Emergency. He took us there quickly and handled everything there for us in the most professional manner, including taking my husband to the pharmacy to secure what I needed.
We could not have taken care of the situation without him. He really was a life saver.
After much time at the hospital, he made sure we got back quickly and safely to our hotel.
There are no words enough to praise kindness and professionalism of this very special person.

Three countries in one FABULOUS day
Andrej was wonderful, patient, informative, and just an all-around nice guy. This was a tour with my daughters and me, and I truly couldn't have asked for anything better. It is well worth the money and time spent -- it was great to learn the history and actually get to see where it was made. My girls loved beautiful Piran (the pearl of Slovenia) and I enjoyed Grožnjan, Croatia the most. But it was unanimous, we all really like Andrej. Thank you for the wonderful day. I HIGHLY recommend this service.

Thank you to Andrej for a fantastic day trip to Slovenia.
We learnt so much about this beautiful country. The trip was well organized and the transportation very comfortable.We highly recommend this tour.

Just an excellent day out
We rang Slovenia 4 Seasons from Trieste after seeing their brochure; spoke with Andrej and arranged to be picked up at our hotel (Alla Posta) the next morning at 0900 to go on the "3 countries in one day" tour trip. Our guide Jernej was there on time, introduced himself and off we went in their excellent Ford van. The van is a 7-seater with lots of room and very good aircon. We were to visit Groznjan in Croatia, Piran in Slovenia, and Muggia in Italy, all on the Istrian Peninsula. What a beautiful part of the world, and we were treated to be taken through back roads and little villages and some great views of the countryside. You need to bring your passports to visit and go into Croatia from Slovenia, and they get stamped going in and out from both countries! While Croatia is a part of the EU from 2013, the border is not just open, and also Croatia does not use Euros, it has its own currency of Kuna, the exchange rate being about 1:7, Euros to Kuna. Groznjan is a delight of a hilltop village, Piran is a seaside small port and holiday town and Muggia is the small last and most eastern Italian village before the border with Slovenia. Guide Jernej was a non-stop hive of information and local history on all manner of subjects, so we had great knowledge impart and interaction.
I cannot rate our day highly enough, and fully recommend Slovenia 4 Seasons for this tour. They also do a variety of other day tours/trips h sound equally as interesting. Thanks Andrej !

Bear watching Slovenia
During our roadtrip to Ljubljana we saw a lot of bear statues. On our last day we decided we wanted to see a brown bear in wild life. The Ljubljana tourist office brought us in contact with Slovenia 4 Seasons. A realy friendly guide picked us up at our hotel, offered us a delicious meal in a local restaurant and brought us to a professional hunter. After a five minute walk in the forest we arrived at a hunter watchtower. we had to be very quited and after waiting about 45 minutes we saw a mama brown bear with 3 little cubs. She noticed our presence so we needed to be very careful. The moment was very exciting and spectacular! It is a must-do for every nature and animal lover!
Custom Day Trips to Venice & Kamnik from Ljubljana
Four of us used Slovenia 4 Seasons as a customized pre-trip to a tour we had booked. Our guide picked us up from our hotel in a nice, clean, comfortable van (the spelling of our guides name is unknown but we addressed him as 'Meet-cha'). This being our first time to the area and to this type of tour our guide made us feel at home. During our drive to Venice he would answer our questions and would tell us about the area we traveled through ... this learning continued though out the entire trip and if he did not know an answer he would find it out. After a long day we were returned to our hotel for some rest before starting our next day trip. The next day we were greeted with the same smile, warmth, charm and proceeded to learn more about the surrounding area and Kamnik. Our guides knowledge was limitless as well as his zest for living. I highly recommend Slovenia 4 Seasons and will use them again in the future!

FABULOUS 13 DAYS
This review is overdue as I went to Slovenia in June 2017, but definitely wanted to write about my great experience with Andrej and the spelunking guide (I'm sorry, I have forgotten his name). Slovenia has a ton of cave systems, so visiting Slovenia on a solo trip, I definitely wanted to go cave exploring, but outside the standard tourist caves. I found that spelunking is not really a commercialized activity in Slovenia and am so glad I found Andrej!
He and I exchanged a few emails back and forth (very communicative) and he warned me in advance that it was a very active experience. Boy was he right! I am an active hiker and runner and not afraid of many things when it comes to the outdoors and adrenaline pumping activities, but this was certainly one of the scariest, riskiest and unique adventures I've ever had.
From the minute Andrej picked us up in Trieste until he dropped us home the day was amazing. Postojna caves, Lake Bled and Ljubljna in a perfect 1 day trip. Awesome guide with great history and information as you travel, great vantage points of interest...cannot rate this day highly enough.
Hi we had a memorable day. Thanks for your help.

Esperienza fantastica insieme al nostro tour leader Mitja! Abbiamo trascorso un'intera giornata con una persona del posto che Ama la sua terra e che parla benissimo l'italiano. Ha cercato di trasmetterci il suo know how nel miglior modo possibile e di accontentarci un po' in tutto. Ci ha dato tante informazioni sulla Slovenia, sui posti che abbiamo visitato ma non solo! Abbiamo parlato di tante cose e anche della nostra Italia che molto probabilmente conosce più di noi!!!! Gita di un giorno che consiglio a tutti.... in un giorno da soli sarebbe stato impossibile visitare e scoprire tutte le attrattive che ci ha spiegato e che ci ha fatto vedere Mitja. Eravamo titubanti per il prezzo, ma ne è valsa la pena!!!!!!!! Sicuramente ritorneremo!!!! Grazie Mitja e grazie Slovenia 4 Seasons.

“A Fantastic Day well worth doing... The best view I have ever seen.” 5 of us did the trip with Andrej who was excellent in taking us to various places including the Caves,Castle and best of all was Lake Bled where the views and surroundings were one of the best we have ever seen, so serene and breathtaking vistas.The trip was superb and I would recommend this to anyone.

Don't let the name fool you--great tour of Croatia!” Andrej was recommended to us by the Savoy hotel in Trieste. We couldn't be happier with our day long tour into Croatia (Rovinj & Groznjan) and a quick trip into Koper, Slovenia. Andrej is incredibly knowledgeable about so many topics--political, cultural, economic, wine & food. We had a FULL day with him and enjoyed every minute. He helped us taste and find some great wines and food and took us to an amazing restaurant in Rovinj where we had the best food we've had on our trip (including Italy). He customized the time he spent with us and made sure we were happy and engaged the whole time. I will be contacting him to prepare a custom itinerary for Croatia very soon. Book quickly, though--he fills up fast!!
