I really enjoyed this informative tour of Slovenia. I loved hearing the goat stories, seeing the beautiful emerald water, and the information provided by the guide. We saw so much and when they say full day, they mean full day.

We booked this trip to get as much out of our stay as possible, and it did not disappoint. A tiny bit of hassle in the morning, as the trip is out of Bled, not Ljubljana, but that was obviously not 3glav’s fault. The skilled and funny guide Klavdij (pronounced «Cloudy») picked us up with the rest of the great group of people we were lucky enough to spend the day with. The trip takes you through the Triglav National Park with some great views and short hikes along the way. The whole group did the rafting as well, down Soca river. Sadly the river was slow and low, but it was still great fun and a lovely bonding experience for the group. We finished off with another hike and a cool car train ride part of the way, and back to Bled. 3glav is a great company, very service minded and lovely. And Klavdij was just a perfectly lovely guide and host, interacting with the group all the way, bonding us together. I highly recommend this excursion, and do the rafting!

Great, active day out. River rafting was the highlight so make sure you choose this option. Jaka and Luka were friendly and fun hosts. A bit less driving would have been appreciated, particularly towards the end of the day, but this is a minor criticism.

This tour was amazing - one of the highlights of our entire trip!!! Lovro and Yakka were fantastic guides, both taking the time to interact with ALL the people in the group. The hikes were not too long or difficult, the view were spectacular and there was a variety of interests throughout the day. Yakka's stories were much appreciated by all, as were all the pictures they both took. We participated in the rafting, as did everyone in our group and didn't find it overly taxing. There was a young girl in the group and she managed just fine. In fact, I think I had a smile on my face the entire time we rafted, it was so much fun. It was really nice to be able to take the train back, which avoided a long drive back around and added an additional experience. I really can't recommend this tour enough and I definitely want to return to Slovenia!
