  • We enjoyed the tour. Saw lots of great sites, that I wish the tour guide could have gone into a bit more detail on.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • A great introduction to the capital, its history, architecture and cuisine. In case your are not sure if your cell phone roaming will work or not, take a printed map to make the group meeting place easier to find.

  • Awesome tour!

  • It was a nice walk with a very knowledgeable guide, and included a pit stop for some local delicacies wish we could have bought a drink ourselves whilst there. The sun was beating down, so bring a hat and water bottle. Wish they had a 'fast track' to the funicular ride up and down. The price of the castle entry is not included, which is good for people not wanting to go into the castle. You can still get great pics up the top along the rampart instead.

  • This was a lovely city and our tour gave us history, culture, food and interesting facts

  • Super helpful and knowledgeable tour guide. It was a medium/large group, but he kept an eye on everyone and made sure we were all included. I wish we had more time in the castle and to learn more about it. But walking the city was great! It's such a beautiful place.

  • Wonderful way of getting to know the History of Ljubljana. Eslovenia's capital city center is not that big so you get to walk most of the old town and learn about its History. Highly recommended.

  • very good tour

  • We walked around the old city and then across the river to the new city. The guide spoke very good English and told us a brief history of the city. We did miss the triple bridge but it was pointed out to us. The tour finishes at the funicular which is included. This takes you up to the castle at the top of hill. There are lifts to take you up to ground level if you can find them or walk up many stone steps. Be aware WC are at funicular level. Great tour for a very reasonable price.
