Venice tour - June 2018

Venice day trip & bear safari   We have just come back from the bear safari & yesterday had a day trip to Venice. Both times we were with Stefan who was just brilliant, really friendly & he offered lots of interesting information about Slovenia & even took us in to the local shop to buy some ajvar & monks herbal tea when I mentioned I liked the herbal tea at breakfast in our hotel. The tours were totally private & Stefan was happy to let us stop or stay longer when we wanted to. I would recommend this company to everyone thinking of booking & only wish we had more time here in Slovenia so we could do more of their tours - we will have to save it for the next visit though!

Venice tour - May 2017

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! Jen&Lou Tuttle, USA

Three countries in one day (CRO, SLO, IT) - August 2019

So Good We Did Two Tours!!My wife and I recently went to Croatia to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. Prior to our trip, I booked the "3 Countries in One Day" tour with Slovenia 4 Seasons. Andrej was professional and quick to respond to all of my questions prior to our arrival in Croatia. Our tour guide (Stefan) was on time and had great energy the whole day. He provided some great history about each country and city we toured. He also made some perfect recommendations for our lunch stop in Piran, Slovenia, and dessert in Trieste, Italy. We had such a positive experience with this tour, we decided to book a second tour for later in the week. We again had Stefan for a tour guide, and once again he was EXCELLENT!! The second tour was a day excursion to Venice from Opatija, Croatia. Thanks so much to Stefan and Andrej!!

Three countries in one day (IT, CRO, SLO) - July 2017

“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!

Dear Andrej, Thanks a lot for a wonderful trip in Trieste and Slovenia. We really had a good time. Thank goodness we accepted your suggestion on our final day. We would have missed beautiful places and now we can tell our friends what they shouldn't miss. Thanks again on behalf of my friends and myself for your professional tour and your company. We hope to meet you again in the future. Best wishes, Rodrigo, José Ignacio, Charo and Juan, Valencia, Spain

    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.

    3 Country Tour 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
