Description

This tour is designed as an active approach to the less known, but pristine parts of Slovenia.
Right from there some of the best groceries are coming to our markets.

In this area of Slovenia, you will be amazed by the simplicity of living. Simplicity, related to endurance and pride.
This shows up in the careful maintenance of the land and in the awareness and conscious about self-sufficiency.

Loopy tip:
A great look at the farming life in geographically rugged areas of Slovenia with a hike and a gastronomic award for it.

This was our second trip with Bart, he was exactly on time for our pickup in Rijeka.
He helped us decide on the trip destinations and we had another wonderful day seeing the must see tourist spots and then the real Croatia in the small hilltop villages! He took us to a great cafe for our morning coffee and a fantastic local restaurant for truffles and pasta etc. for lunch!
Bart gave lots of insight into Croatia its history and the way they live! We loved the day!

We had a lovely time with Jernej, he is very knowledgeable about the country and all the places we visited during the duration of the tour.
When we were there it was rainy but we still had a great time.
Jernej goes out of his way to ensure that you enjoy the tour and tells you about all the local places and has good suggestions of places to see to experience Slovenia as a 'local'.
We did the west loop and as we only had one day in Slovenia, it is a full day tour, but it certainly is worth the money spent, and I certainly want to return to Slovenia to see the east loop as it is such a beautiful natural country
Do not wonder about booking any of these tours when visiting, book it immediately as it is more than worth it!

By email exchange from Australia with Jernej, who was to be our guide and driver, we put together a private multi day custom tour of eastern Slovenia.
Collecting us (2 people) from our hotel in Zagreb we were driven to Ljubljana , then to Lake Bled via Vintgar Gorge. Our tour took in the Vrsic mountain pass, Soca River, Brda wine region ( staying in Smarto), Kobarid War Museum, Predjama Castle, Skocjan Caves Lipica Stud Farm ( staying in Piran) and finally transferring to Rovinj via Istrian hill towns.
In all our travels, Jernej selected routes that showcased the wonderful landscapes and small villages in Slovenia. Most of the roads were through the rural farming areas with little road traffic. This enhanced our experience and appreciation of Slovenia.
Jernej, with his many connections gave us some wonderful insights into everday life in Slovenia that a tourist is rarely afforded.His extensive knowledge and experience stimulated many interesting discussions. In addition we were treated to an improptu lunch and wine tasting in the wonderful Jelenic Winery, another lunch and farm tour with one of his cousins (Viljem) and his family, and even a brief visit to his mother's 80th birthday party. And we can't help but mention our off road forest experience. This was a real bonus!
The multi day tour arrangements went seamlessly .Both the transport and accommodation were excellent.The tour was very well organized and efficient.
Jernej's personal approach was very engaging and stimulating throughout our tour exhibiting his extensive knowledge and experience of Slovenia and his great sense of humor.
For us this delivered a wonderful and memorable experience of Slovenia.
We would highly recommend this company led by the remarkable manager Jernej Zakelj.

Many, many thanks to Jernej for the fantastic tour yesterday.
We arranged for a private tour, and we hoped to see my grandparents’ hometowns.
No only did Jernej find the hometowns, he found their baptismal records, my grandpa’s twin brother’s grave, and even some long lost cousins that I’ve heard about but never met! We not only met them, but had dinner with them, and their families!
Again, thank you, Jernej! Your went over and above our expectations.
