Your adventure begins with a convenient pickup from your central Ljubljana hotel or other meeting point. After a brief introduction with your guide and fellow travelers, settle in to your comfortable minivan and set off for the journey to your first point of interest. Admire the views from your window as you travel into Slovenia’s green hillsides.

First up: Lake Bled, an emerald lake surrounded by dramatic mountains. After a brief stroll, board an apletna (a Slovenian wooden boat) and journey to the tiny island in the center of the lake—Solvenian’s only island. Explore the island as your guide reveals its fascinating and quirky history, while pausing for photos along the way.

After, it’s a quick drive to the Vintgar Gorge, a must see. This stunning canyon is known for its grand walls that rise 330 feet (100 meters) into the sky. Nearby you’ll discover Šum, a beautiful waterfall that drops 85 feet (26 meters). Enjoy lunch on your own (additional expense) before heading to Bohinj, Slovenia’s largest glacial lake. Take advantage of free time to rent a canoe (own expense) or to swim in the lake’s cerulean waters.

Before the tour winds to a close, stop at the town of Škofja Loka, which has a fairytale castle and the oldest bridge in Central Europe. Take some time to explore the quaint town and take some photos as the sun begins to set. You tour ends back at the starting point.

Perfect trip to the lake

Bled lake was absolutely stunning, with the lilies in full bloom. Our guide even added a nice stop atop a hill elsewhere. Lots of time to stroll along the lake and it was good weather too! Our guide was very friendly and funny and we only had 3 people in our group so that was almost akin to a private tour. Everyone is so nice :D

The whole day was great, quite variable, and the guide was excellent. My son loved Lake Bled best and I loved walking in Vintgar Gorge best. Thank you for a wonderful experience. Marie McNay

Primoz was an excellent guide. He made sure we had all of the information we needed at each stop. The scenery is amazing and so worth going on. i would have liked more time in Vitnar gorge. I think we could have skipped the visit to Skofja and spent more time in the gorge

This trip was fantastic. The driver/guide was very friendly and informative. We drove around Lake Bled, then headed to the castle. After visiting the castle, we headed back to lake level for out boat trip to the island. We had plenty of time to explore the church, even going up to the top of the tower. Next stop was Lake Bohinj. We had a couple of stops, one to eat lunch, then to our final destination, the Vintgar Gorge. The gorge is magnificent with an interesting walkway along the river. It was so beautiful and peaceful.

Our guide Clement was wonderful - he shared loads of interesting information and was also very happy to engage with my American 19/22 yr old sons re Slovenians experience of the NBA and soccer. He accommodated our interests (we were his only guests) and made our day to Lake Bled and the Gorge truly wonderful

Klemen was a good tour guide showing us the beautiful locations in this tour. He kept a great pace and offered breaks as needed. He is very knowledgeable about Slovenia and these sights which makes the day very interesting and quick. Lake Bled is like a fairytale and was hiking in the gorge was a highlight. Bring comfortable walking shoes as the hike takes over an hour and may be muddy at the end.

We had a wonderful almost 12 hour day exploring the beautiful countryside of Slovenia with our amazing guide Jon. He was a fount of information about the culture, history and people and very easy going and pleasant to interact with. We had a small group of 5 doing Lake Bled, Lake Bohinj and Vintgar Gorge and it was amazing to walk through Vintgar Gorge in all its splendor and be the only ones there experiencing that nature. Highly recommend Roundabout Travel Tours and Jon!

Highly Recommended—Fabulous Sights, Great Guide
Amy_Z

What a great day trip! We saw so much, and our guide, Primus, was so responsive to the group’s needs. It was a rainy day, so he kept a constant eye on the weather so that we could miss the majority of the bad weather. He was incredibly knowledgeable and interesting, but he was also super easy going and able to read when the group wanted more or less guidance or info. The sights were also fabulous. I truly enjoyed everything we saw, but I think Vintgar Gorge was my favorite. Highly recommended!

We had limited time in Slovenia and wanted to experience as much as possible. I was a little hesitant to book so many sights in one day tour; but this tour was well-paced and provided ample time to enjoy each of the experiences. Our guide was excellent!

Excellent tour that exceeded all expectations. Our guide, Boris, was very kind and informative, and he kept everyone engaged and interested throughout the day. He was an exceptional guide, and made the day very enjoyable. The sights that we say were very beautiful, and we had plenty of time to explore each location. Highly recommend

Our guide Urban was an excellent tour guide giving good information with a sense of humour. The main sites we saw included gorgeous Lake Bled, glacial Lake Bohinj, Vintgar Gorge and Skofja Loka, a charming non-touristy village. Lovely day.

Good tour (with sour end)
Thom W
, Oct 2019
Our tour—just 3 of us—was fine. Bled didn’t disappoint. The day ended on a sour note when we all 3 misunderstood our instructions from the driver:guide, Valentina. At the gorge, she told us to either walk to the last bridge then turn around and come back, or she would meet us at the end. We opted to meet her at the end, altho she didn’t explain clearly that that meant we’d walk 30 minutes on a dusty, hilly road away from the river. We eventually had to call the office to get picked up. Valentina seemed frustrated with us, even though all 3 of us felt that the instructions were unclear. She never took responsibility and never apologized. She even told us we were the first group to do this, making us feel even more stupid. (And we were not a stupid group!). In the end, we made it back safe. Lesson learned: Don’t give confusing “options” that can be misconstrued, and apologize when your customers are unhappy.

Almost 11 hrs of touring. Our tour guide Primus (hope I got the name correct) was exceptionally good. It was a small group just 5 of us. Had an awesome day!
