Before getting to the top of the Vrsic pass we stop at the Russian chapel. Then we drive to Trenta valley, a remote and tranquil place in the heart of Julian Alps. Kobarid’s First world war museum is the best place to explain the Soca river front line, one of the toughest front lines in the war history.

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 only had a few days and would never have been able to see all the sights we did without this tour. It was also incredible value for money. I booked online from the uk with ease and Bart was a fantastic tour guide. It was just me and a friend and he tailored the tour and information to us. He is extremely knowledgeable, entertaining and if we go back to Slovenia we will do another tour with him and Loopy Tours!
Bart was an excellent tour guide that really shows you how unique Slovenia (and a bit of Italy) can be. From the lakes to the countryside to the wine country, to the coast, to the caves, this tour won't disappoint even the most ambitious of travelers. Note (I did the west tour, but wished I had been around longer to have done the east as well)
