Description

This is a great trip for those who want to see the most of West Slovenia in just one day. The pace is still pleasant and easy going with so many different panoramas to experience along the way. You will visit a giant Postojna cave and take a photo of a wonderful Predjama castle, see Alpine mountains and crystal clear Bled lake with the island in the middle of it and be able to taste local wines and olive oil in Brda - the best places that Slovenia has to offer.

My husband and I were visiting Slovenia for our honeymoon. We were so excited to see Slovenia but found it difficult to find a tour that would take us to the less discovered areas of Slovenia and give us a more authentic view of the country without having to pay through the nose for a private tour. Loopy Slovenia was the answer! We did both the East Loop and the West Loop tours with Jernej. Right after booking the tours we communicated with Jernej about what we were looking to see and experience on our trip. He really went out of his way to ensure that we had a memorable experience focused on our passions. The East Loop was our favorite. We saw a local's side of Slovenia. The countryside and the people out there were wonderful! We enjoyed great wine, history, and scenery. We did the excursion in Rogatec. After visiting the outdoor museum, we had to opportunity to sit down with the woman who ran the museum and really speak with her about past and modern life in Slovenia. It was very interesting to speak with a local about her culture and a memory we will always treasure. The West Loop is a bit more touristic but extremely beautiful! Jernej took us along a mountain pass that is off the beaten track and it took our breath away. We then stopped by a little cafe where a local woman treated us to some local brandy and spoke with us about what it means to be Slovenian. The highlight though was our meal in Smartno, Brda. We paid for the extra excursion and were not disappointed. Everything about our experience with Loopy Slovenia was a true pleasure. We can't thank them enough for making our honeymoon so wonderful and memorable!

We did the Western Loop with Jernej. We chose the MultiDay option as we wanted to hop off the tour and stay over night in Smartno, Brda to visit with relatives. We rejoined the tour the next day and continued on. This was a great option for us as travelling by public transport would have been difficult and time consuming. The places we visited were great and Jernej was very knowledgeable. Don't go crazy travelling around Slovenia. Go Loopy!

My husband and I joined the West Loop in June. There was no other guest that day, so we enjoyed a wonderful private tour. We were taken to both popular and less travelled places, tasted delicious local produce and wine, and was shown how to fully enjoy a vacation despite unfavourable weather. Slovenia is splendid, and well deserves more than just a day or two. Our guide Jernej is friendly, knowledgeable and humourous. He was eager to make our entire trip in Slovenia, not just the West Loop we paid for, memorable. He even offered to take care of our luggage and give us a brief tour for free in Koper a few days after the West Loop trip. We didn't take the offer due to change of plans, but we eventually met twice for drinks and pizza in Ljubljana! We heartily recommend Loopy Slovenia to anyone who would love to see the true colours of Slovenia.
