Ljubljana and Lake Bled tour with Dino

My day tour with Dino was amazing and I highly recommend it. This is my first time to Croatia and Dino answered everyone’s questions, very friendly, and knowledgeable. The van was clean and before we left, Dino made sure we all had our passports and Euros. At each site, Dino provided a tour, then the group had 1.5 hours to grab lunch, visit the castle, etc. My favorite activity was visiting Lake Bled and riding the boat to the island. Absolutely gorgeous and again we had a tour, then free time to wander. Perfect day trip - A must do/see tour with Dino.

The boat ride to Bled island was great! The castle tickets were optional but we didn't have the option not to enter. Besides the view, was not something special.

This was by far my most favourite trip. It’s a long one so so make sure you’re well rested. The first thing to keep in mind is that if you aren’t already in Slovenia, you’ll need your passport to cross the border, so make sure you have it on you. Secondly, the currency is euro and the small markets in Ljubljana only accept cash so make sure you have cash handy. Ljubljana is a small and beautiful city; it is green, clean and it is just lovely to walk around - you have around 40-50 mins here so make the most of your time and definitely try the traditional sausage and strukli from the market place. The drive to Lake Bled isn’t far off from here. You can actually swim in the lake so do make sure that you take your swimming suit to make the most of this experience; it isn’t stated on the tour description which is a shame and both my fiancé and I were a little disappointed by this as we would have liked a swim. However, the views are compensation enough. The lake and island are gorgeous and you can pay for a small boat to take you to the island if you’d like. You also get the opportunity to go to Bled Castle which is a little further up; again you will need cash and definitely try the traditional cream cake there.

Very fun, got to learn a lot about the area. Dino was our guide and he was very accommodating and informative. His humor was also a nice addition to the experience. The sights were great as well, plenty of time in each place. I felt we saw a lot but felt relaxed as well, perfect experience!

Madeline_S

I booked this the night before my tour date in hopes that it would be an excellent solo day trip and it turned out to be better than expected! Dino, our guide, led our group in an exciting, informative and fun day trip from start to end. The two cities were incredible to visit, my favorite being the town of Bled. Dino would give us a small tour then let us have free time or choose to do activities in the towns. I’d recommend this to anyone who is looking for a day trip out of Zagreb! Thanks Dino!

Our tour guide made the whole trip special. He is a natural who loves what he is doing. The guided touring and free time were perfectly balanced. The advice I have is to make sure you have cash for the €15 boat ride to the island Church. The boatman does not take cards.
