This was such a lovely trip and Andrej made it so wonderful for our group. Our first trip was to Lake Bled and another beautiful little medieval town of Skofja Loka. We actually had two vans that were very comfortable, which made the trip from Trieste very easy. Andrej showed us around Lake Bled and provided great information on the history and location as well as introduced us to some wonderful pastries before lunch. We were able to walk around Lake Bled and enjoy the scenery, even in the rain, and it was just lovely. Normally, you would be able to take one of the boats out to the island but weather did not permit for us that day. We then went to Skofja Loka and started out with a fantastic lunch. It was the best lunch we had in Slovenia. We then strolled around the beautiful town, including the church, and listened to stories and took lots of pictures as this town is very picturesque.
For our second tour with Andrej, there was only 7 of us and we had a wine tour (2 wineries). The first winery focused on reds and the second on whites. The first winery was by far our favorite as the wines were lovely and it was a beautiful time. We were able to try many great wines and purchase them before moving on to the second location. Andrej was nice enough to allow a few of our friends to show up at this last winery with a small charge. At this winery it was a comfortable, warm environment with a beautiful family sharing their wine and stories with us in their home. We loved it. Their wines were very very nice as well. It included cheeses, meats, and home made breads that were delicious. This winery was right on the border of Slovenia and Italy. Very beautiful setting.
Overall we had an excellent time on both tours and would definitely book with Andrej again. It is 100% worth it if you are not renting your own car and driving around. Thanks so much Andrej!
