We arranged for a tour of the Postojna Caves and Predjama Castle from Trieste, as part of a trip with our 12 year old grandson. Our hotel had mentioned Slovenia4Seasons as a way to get to the Slovenian attractions. First contact was through email. Andrej was quickly responsive and we arranged a tour only 3 days before our schedule. Jernej picked us up right on time. Mini van very comfortable. We got to the caves at opening so it was very uncrowded. The cave tours are by train/walking and by language group, so Jernej left us a the English point, and met us afterward. The caves are remarkable. We continued with a personal tour of the castle which is also unique- built into the Karst above another cave and underground river. Following the caves we stopped (our request) for a nice lunch in the Postojna area. As a plus, Jernej drove us on the “back roads” to Trieste, so we could see the fields where the Lipizzaner Horses are kept. These are the famous horses of the Austrian “Spanish School” that perform in Vienna. About 50 mares were in the field. They came to the fence and interacted with us, then were called to stable by a handler and they ran off. It was an awesome sight. Great end to a great day. Certainly one of the highlights of our two week trip. Jernej gave us a fascinating history of Slovenia and answered many of our questions about how the country has interacted with empires/regimes over the centuries and now has Independence since 1991. We thoroughly enjoyed his facts and insight about Slovenia. Feels like we were there for one week, rather than a day from what we learned. Slovenia4Seasons seems to be a small company that offers very personal service from entrepreneurial folks who are interested in pleasing. We were never rushed or hurried and I can’t think of any way the day could have been better. I highly recommend them if you are interested in visiting and learning about Slovenia.
