Description

Embark on an exciting private day trip that takes you through three countries in just one day, starting from Ljubljana. Your adventure begins as our guide picks you up from your accommodation and drives you to the picturesque coastal town of Trieste in Italy, a city known for its rich history and diverse cultural influences. Your walking tour starts at the impressive Piazza Unita D’Italia, one of Italy’s finest squares, overlooking the Bay of Trieste, and concludes in the Theresian district. Afterward, you’ll have some free time to explore the city, renowned for its shopping and delightful Italian coffee.

Next, you’ll cross the border into Slovenia, traveling along a scenic coastal road to the photogenic town of Piran. This charming place has preserved its unique charm, and your guide will share its rich history and culture with you. You’ll have the opportunity to admire the main square, named after Piran’s most famous native, composer Giuseppe Tartini, who played a pivotal role in shaping the town’s cultural heritage. Piran boasts a beautiful square with a blend of Venetian Gothic and Austrian Neoclassical architectural styles.

From Piran, you’ll enjoy a short walk to the 16th-century parish church of San George, which offers spectacular views of three countries from its courtyard: Slovenia, Italy, and Croatia. After exploring Piran, you’ll have free time to discover the town on your own and savor a delicious lunch at one of the seafront restaurants, with recommendations from your guide.

In the afternoon, you’ll cross yet another border and head to Croatia, where you’ll conclude your day in the hilltop town of Grožnjan. This town is renowned as the “town of artists” and is filled with art galleries and small shops offering Istrian specialties such as truffles, fuži pasta, olive oil, and wine. During a short stroll, your guide will show you the highlights of this hidden gem in the breathtaking Istrian countryside.

Finally, you’ll return to your accommodation in Ljubljana, enriched with a unique and memorable cross-border experience.

Three countries in one day (IT, CRO, SLO) - February 2023

We booked the 3 countries/1 day tour from Ljubljana to Trieste, Italy; Piran, Slovania; Groznjan, Croatia. From start to finish our trip was amazing! Andrej texted me the day before our tour to confirm and make sure I had his cell # in case there were any issues. The tour is up to 8 people (Mercedes mini van) but due to traveling off season my teen daughter and I had a personal tour! I cannot say enough good things about this tour and Andrej. There are zero negatives (unless you consider my dismay that the tour we booked for tomorrow is not with Andrej). Andrej is a history buff and you can tell that he is passionate about informing his tours about the region. Being from America, he really viewed our tour from things we could relate to - comparing populations and sizes of countries to the US so we could visualize what he was explaining. The tour was the perfect balance of Andrej showing us the main sites in the towns and explaining options to us so we could explore our interests on our own. Book your trip you will not be disappointed! Thank you Andrej!!!

What a great tour. Bart was the best. He picked us up on time and started his informative, interesting and fun tour immediately. We saw everything there was to see plus more. Any question we had Bart had an answer. We learned so much about Slovenia, Croatia and Italy on this tour. Saw some amazing sights and memorable experiences.

Three countries in one day (IT, CRO, SLO) - March 2022

My husband and I visited Slovenia and Croatia with friends and spent an amazing day with Stefan after having corresponded with Andrej to modify our itinerary slightly. We had a great morning in Piran Slovenia and had lunch by the ocean. We then visited Grožnjan Croatia, and although many artists had not opened for the season, Stefan made sure we met the artists who were open and we learned about truffle hunting, brandy making and other artisan products. We also met an artist and toured his gallery while he told us about upcoming exhibit in Belgium he was preparing for. We were then taking to Kabola Winery, family run for over a century. We sat on the deck in the warm Istrian sun and sampled (and bought!) several wines. We wrapped up the day with a visit to the Butori Waterfall since we didn't get to Plitvice Lakes on this trip. I can't say enough about the service, attention to detail, the beauty of the area, or the overall experience. I highly recommend Slovenia4Seasons!

We chose the 3 countries in one day program. It was a very beautiful experience, Stefan our guide was amazing, excellent knowledge of the history and the place. It satisfied our every desire. We felt like we went on an excursion with a friend. Among the positive aspects of the excursion is the agency's flexibility in modifying the program. The car is very comfortable.

We had a one day trip including Trieste , Piran and Groznan, three countries in a day. Istria is a wonderful landscape. Our guide gave us an insight not only about some touristic highlights but also a historical introduction about Balkan. It was very interesting and more than I expected before. I really enjoyed and thank you very much Andrej for the vine recommendation. Refosk was very tasty and convincing. Belgin Aksoy, Turkey

My family of 6 did the 3 country 1 day trip to Italy, Slovenia, and Croatia. Andrej, our driver and guide, was very professional, but so friendly and nice. He was very patient with the two little ones in our group, and his knowledge of the history of the areas we visited was very impressive. We had a great day, and we highly recommended this tour and this company!

Five Stars for Three Countries in One Day My wife, daughter and I enjoyed the Three Countries in One Day tour with Stefan. He was an incredibly insightful and accommodating tour guide who made our entire day a tremendous experience. We loved the little artists town in Croatia, exploring Piran, and visiting Trieste. We highly recommend this tour, especially if you have Stefan as your tour guide.

Private tour of 3 countries in 1 day was worth the money Had private tour of 3 countries in 1 day, starting in Ljubljana and going to Italy, Piran, and Croatia. Wonderful experience! Each city was unique with stunning views. Andrej was our guide and he was wonderful about giving us plenty of personal time to explore and pointed out things that WE were interested in (after talking about our interests). Helped us find places to eat and had excellent suggestions for future places to go. Nice to be picked up and dropped off from our hotel. He was very friendly and accomodating and I will definitely recommend him to all my friends.

    Excellent Tours! My wife and I did four day trips from Trieste with Slovenia 4 Seasons. The highlights were wine tasting in Slovenia, hosted by the wine maker and his wife at their home, trips the Croatian and Slovenia coasts, and beatiful Lake Bled. The private tours were beautiful conducted by Andrej and Igor. They are very knowledgable regarding Slovenian and Croatian history, including interesting commentary on Tito. Highly recommended.

    Slovenia 4 Seasons - great tour Agency! Slovenia 4 Seasons was recommended to us by our Hotel - Urban Hotel Design in Trieste. We booked their Slovenia in One Day tour to Postojna Caves, Lake Bled and Ljubljana. As we were 6 people we had our own driver Igor, who was also our tour leader. This was an amazing tour, and we truly lucked in with Igor as he gave us so much information on each place we visited. We were very well taken care of. Our walking tour around Ljubljana was fantastic and at no point did Igor rush us through our trip, but allowed us time to just enjoy the beauty around us. The only thing I would recommend is to have a microphone in the van as Igor could not always be heard by those sitting in the very back. Really well done, and we cannot recommend Igor highly enough.

    The best possible tour of the Balkans We have travelled a lot but the 15 day tour of Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Montenegro that Andrej organised for us was exceptional. Everything from choice of hotels, driver/guide, everything seen, food and wines, local guides and total ambience of the trip was more than anybody could ever expect. We began the trip with minimal knowledge of the countries we visited but, by the end of the comprehensive input from all the guides, we are leaving with some considerable knowledge of this complicated and exciting region. Slovenia4Seasons should be the first choice of anybody intending to visit the Balkans and beyond.

    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.

    Bellissima giornata in Slovenia.. Abbiamo fatto una bellissima escursione giornaliera in Slovenia, in particolare alle grotte di Postumia, lago di Bled e Lubiana. Ci ha accompagnato Andrej che è venuto a prenderci personalmente a Trieste. È stata una giornata molto interessante e ricca di contenuti. Il lago di Bled, in particolare,è un luogo magico..da sogno. Grazie a Andrej professionale e sempre gentilissimo.. A presto...Francesca, Tiziana e Monica.
