Program (11 hours)In Lendava we head on to recently made 53,5m high Vinarium tower from where you can see four countries: Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary and Austria. Jeruzalem can easily be considered heaven on earth with its holy name and energetic vibes. With trying some of exclusive white wines and pumpkin seed oil on a tourist farm we’ll make our trip an experience, like crusaders in the past. This natural Island of love in Izakovci is located between the two streams of the Mura river, the soul and symbol of Prekmurje region.
Lendava is a border town near Hungary with the highest panoramic tower in Slovenia and wine room in it.
Izakovci - Island of love
Island was a place of a legendary, heartbraking love story between a rich girl and poor boy.
Jeruzalem got it's name when crusaders, after trying local wine, decided they arrived to the their final destination.

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
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.
