You’ll be amazed by the beautiful, green, and diverse scenery. You’ll get to see the Alps, dip your toes in the Adriatic sea, and learn about the country and its lovely people. By the end of the tour, you’ll want to stay longer or come back soon. Let’s get started on this fantastic Slovenia adventure!
AIRPORT – LJUBLJANAYou can choose your arrival airport for your convenience - we're all about flexibility. We're more than happy to arrange a pickup from Ljubljana, Trieste, Zagreb, or Venice airports and take you to your comfortable home at Hotel Cubo in Ljubljana for the next four days. Once you're settled in, you can relax and prepare for an introductory tour with your expert guide, followed by some drinks and a welcome dinner later in the day. (D)
LJUBLJANA – LAKE BLED – LAKE BOHINJ – LJUBLJANAAfter a good breakfast, we'll start with a walking tour of Ljubljana's Old Town. You'll have time for shopping and lunch. Then, we'll head to Lake Bled, just an hour away. You'll enjoy a ride on a pletna boat, which is a must-do in Bled. After visiting Lake Bled island, we'll make our way to Lake Bohinj, a hidden gem in the Slovenian Alps. In the evening, we'll return to Ljubljana, and you're free to have dinner wherever you like in the lively city. (B)
LJUBLJANA – POSTOJNA CAVES – PREDJAMA CASTLE – PIRAN – LJUBLJANAToday, you'll get to experience the incredible diversity of Slovenia's landscapes. Just a half-hour from Ljubljana, you'll find yourself in the heart of the Karst region, where you can admire its gem, the renowned Postojna Cave, along with Predjama Castle. After a tasty lunch at a local restaurant, it's just another quick half-hour journey to reach the beautiful Adriatic coast and visit Piran, the loveliest of the three coastal Slovenian towns. While the rest of present-day Slovenia has a history tied to the Austrian Empire, these coastal towns were part of the Venetian Republic, a fact your guide will point out. You'll be back in Ljubljana in time to do some more exploring in the capital city. (B, L)
LJUBLJANA – PTUJ – MARIBOR – LJUBLJANAToday, we head east to uncover more of Slovenia's hidden treasures. Ptuj, the country's oldest town with roots dating back to Ancient Roman times, boasts a charming medieval appearance. The impressive castle overlooking the Drava River provides a stunning backdrop for memorable photos. We'll then continue our journey to Maribor, once a major industrial hub in ex-Yugoslavia and now evolving into a welcoming, picturesque town. While exploring the Old Town, you'll come across the world's oldest grapevine, over 400 years old. As we make our way back to Ljubljana, your guide will be delighted to address any lingering questions about our country's past and present. We'll cap off this incredible journey with a farewell dinner at a local restaurant. (B, D)

Trieste discovery private tour – 7 days - May 2023
Trip of Lifetime - Slovenia, Croatia, Italy I highly recommend Slovenia 4 Seasons who planned and carried out a wonderful trip for two couples, traveling in Slovenia, Croatia, and Italy. Andrej, the owner, was always easy to contact and extremely responsive from initial inquiry to finalizing all the details. Andrej had many good suggestions set forth in his different package tours, yet was flexible to accommodate our travel interests. It is truly a customized, personalized travel experience. And, S4S goes to many other countries as well. We traveled in a very comfortable van with our own tour guide, Blaz, during the first 10 days of our trip. Blaz was very personable, knowledgable about all the sites we visited, and always concerned for our wishes and well-being. In each city we visited, Andrej and Blaz arranged for local guides to show us the highlights so that we saw things we surely would have missed otherwise. Each local guide provided an unbelievable amount of information about the people, customs, and history of each town. The hotels along the way were all well situated, well equipped, and with friendly staff. Most of the hotels were luxurious. Our trip typically included breakfast every morning at the hotels and we had several dinners along the way with Blaz. We started in Ljubljana, Slovenia and traveled over the space of ten days all the way to Dubrovnik at the southern end of Croatia. Each day was well planned to include a walking tour and plenty of time to be on your own. After Slovenia and Croatia, we went to Trieste, Italy where we again stayed in a wonderful hotel and enjoyed the local sites. Andrej then took us over to Venice, Italy for a fabulous day trip. We then ended our trip with a few days in Munich, staying at Louis Hotel. We found the city and the hotel to be absolutely fantastic. Andrej arranged our transfers to and from airports, which were all done as professionally as the entire trip. There are too many good things to say about Andrej and Balz along with the amazing places we saw and friendly people we met along the way to put everything into one review. For any who have concerns, English was spoken by nearly everybody we encountered, you felt quite safe everywhere and at all times of the day and night, and you were treated as a welcome guest everywhere. For a trip of a lifetime, you should book with them, right away.

“Fantastic Two Day Road Trip with Andrej and Our Family (kids age 9 and 12) - Highly Recommended!” Great tour! Thanks to Andrej for an epic two day road trip through the stunning valleys and vineyards of Slovenia and the nearby ports of Italy. So glad that I didn't penny pinch and attempt the self-guided rental car tour. Andrej is a true pro who quickly relaxed our family (kids 9 and 12) through a rare combination of mellow yet Phd level local knowledge, subtle yet perceptive tweaks to the tour based on the kids' needs and skilled/safe driving skills. We highly recommend Slovenia 4 Seasons for a family tour. Van B, USA

“Spectacular scenery with 5-star personalized and attentive service!” My multigenerational family, including two toddler daughters and 70 year-old mother, loved our experience with Slovenia 4 Seasons! We serendipitously found their brochure in the lobby of our hotel, the Starhotels Savoia Excelsior Palace in Trieste. Thus began the best part of our trip, which up until then had consisted of lovely but somewhat impersonal train rides through the Swiss Alps and a self-guided (i.e. lots of walking in the hot sun, waiting in line behind hordes of other tourists, overpaying for water taxis) tour of Venice. We had the time of our lives with Slovenia 4 Seasons, with our jovial tour guide Jernej regaling us with the history and culture of Slovenia and Italy as we were driven smoothly in an air-conditioned and very comfortable minivan through the pristine countryside and perfectly preserved storybook villages of Slovenia--just about half an hour from Trieste, but so orderly and clean compared to Italy--and unspoiled due to its status as a hidden gem and also the national character of cleanliness and pride in caring for their small but self-sufficient country. On the first day, we drove up the mountains to a hilltop playground where my daughters gleefully swung on monkey bars seemingly located at the top of this new world, then back downhill through rich green forests, and around picturesque stone and stucco clad villages, each with a proud little church that hosts every villager's wedding, funeral, and a book that contains hundreds of years of ancestry records. Our tots found the bumpy cobblestone streets of Groznjan, a beautifully-preserved and refreshingly uncrowded medieval Croatian village, to be as charming as they were fun and challenging for their little feet to traverse, an entertaining obstacle course on the way to a feast of sumptuous prawns and grilled fish. We ended the day in Lipica, the site of the Lipizzaner stud farm with gorgeous white horses as well as three roly-poly ponies that the girls delighted in meeting. The next day Jernej took us to the graceful capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana, where we visited the colorful and spotless and bustling city center and delicious Farmer's Market. The highlight for the girls, however, was a fantastical indoor playground--Mala Ulica--with a little kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and cafe where they were served freshly squeezed orange juice, grilled cheese, and milk. It was hard to convince them to leave, but our next stop was the most spectacular yet--the dramatic Predjama Castle, built into the side of a cliff with a soaring network of caves extending overhead and through to the other side of the mountain. Jernej introduced us to his friends at the welcoming onsite restaurant, where we dined on savory venison goulash. Our experience with Slovenia 4 Seasons could not have been better or more personalized to our needs and interests--Jernej was willing to literally drive us anywhere we wanted to explore, and stop anywhere for photo ops--and allowed us to see and do so much more, in comfort and safety, than ever would have been possible on our own. We wish we could take them with us on all of our travels--having spent time with tour guides from all over the world, their service truly stands out for their attentiveness, flexibility, creativity, and warmth. We can't wait to go back and see more with Slovenia 4 Seasons!
