    Lake Bled
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission excluded
    Small group approach with carefully planned time, where experienced local tour operator’s chauffeur guide will collect you at designated location for an informative hourly ride to mountainous Alpine region to visit Bled. Upon arrival you will be introduced to destination and possible activities to experience: Take a short walk along the lake shore. The beauty of the surrounding mountains reflects on the lake surface. Throughout the year visitors will enjoy the peace of the lake and fresh air. Climb atop a steep cliff more than 100m above the lake, Bled Castle is how most people imagine a medieval fortress to be, with towers, ramparts, moats and a terrace offering magnificent views. The castle houses a unique treasure - a reconstructed Gutenberg's wooden printing press on which the master printer will demonstrate old printing techniques using hand-made paper. On the lake shore take 'pletna' handmade wooden traditional boat to the lake island. Rowers still use man power as in old days, making your experience more memorable. The tiny, tear-shaped island beckons from the shore and the ride with the 'pletna' boat is a real thrill. Climb atop 99 stairs and ring a bell for your wishes to come true. Upon return from the island stop at the local patisserie and take a break; taste Bled’s famous cream cake – kremšnita. Since the last 60 years, as many as 12 million cream cakes have been sold. Try it yourself. After a nice half day experience we will return back to Ljubljana. Drop off will be at same location as pick up. Castle entrance & guided tour 20,00€ Pletna boat ride 15,00€ Island Bled Church entrance, Luck Bell 6,00€ Vintgar Gorge 20,00€

FAMOUS DESSERT
We left Portoroz, which is on the west coast, and drove to Lake Bled on the way to Ljubljana. It was raining lightly during the first week in May. Our guide took us to Vila Bled for their famous cream cake and coffee. The portions are very generous so you can share. After the rain subsided we had an opportunity to go outside on the patio to get some pictures of the castle, the island with the church, the boats that take you to the island, and the people with umbrellas waiting for the next boat. It is a picturesque location. We can say we were there. Then it started rising again and we were on our way.

Never even had a chance
Dec 2018 • Solo
I booked this trip through Viator, I understood that there are minimums that needed to be met and I was travelling solo. So I had Viator had call several tour providers to ensure that I made the best choice since I was travelling on December 24th, which was not a very popular date. Before I booked, I asked that should no one else book the same tour that there would be an alternative option for that date. I was ensured by viator and the tour provider that if the tour is cancelled due to not meeting the minimum, I would then be charged double for the trip for the same day. I was satisfied with this and very much looking forward to it. On Friday December 21st, as I am about to board a flight I was emailed a cancellation and the only alternative option was a date that I was no longer in Slovenia.

The disappointing part is that the tour was quick to guarantee me service when they wanted my business but with very little notice they cancelled on me. If it were transparent from the beginning I would've kept looking for other options. But I trusted them. The tour provider rudely indicated that they had given me plenty of notice (the Friday before a Monday trip!!).

All in all, I'm glad it didn't work out because I ended up doing it through public transport which cost me less than 15 Euros roundtrip!! The bus station is right in the center of Ljubljana, the bus leaves you right at the lake, I walked around, rode a plenta to the island, had cream cake, took a cab up to the castle..all for less than the cost of the tour!

Dear whatsername625, we understand your personal frustration, but we can not do anything to solve it. All our tours have min no of participants, in your case 4, and you were the only one booked for that tour. We are not hiding that fact but quite contrary it is stated at every level, even at your voucher/ticket. By EU legislation which we are part of, we have full right to cancel a tour 24 hours before execution if there is no enough clients booked. Same as you have an option to cancel your reservation within 24 hours. In your case we tripled this time informing you about cancellation 72 hours due to execution of the tour. Mybe you should mention how you wanted to negotiate booking a private option with paying only extra 2 additional seats, reaching number 3, but you did not want to pay extra 3 seats to reach minimum number 4 to execute the tour. And this was the main purpose why you got angry with us, as we did not allow you to extort us. We are glad that you managed to do it by your self, but again you showed lack of respect for people working in tourism to provide service on 24 December - I am sorry but there is no free lunch in Slovenia.

Jun 2018 • Couples
We booked this tour well in advance knowing it might be cancelled if there were insufficient numbers. No-one else booked but Milan ran a personal tour for us for which we were very grateful. He was extremely knowledgeable about Slovenia and shared that with us on the drive out in his clean, modern air conditioned van. At the lake he drove us around to see the views then left us for 3 hours to do as we chose, which meant not paying for unwanted extras. We chose the pletna boat ride to the island and coffee and cake on return. On the way back to our hotel he gave us good information on what to do for the reainder of our stay in Ljubljana. I would recommend his tour

Nice drive through the countryside
Apr 2018
We travelled a bit out of the tourist season and were the only two passengers on the minibus and our driver Milan gave all his attention to us. Lovely day out and we took the boat to the island and walked back to Bled centre. It was nice to have our guide all to ourselves and been able to ask him loads of questions.
