Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your tour begins at your Ljubljana hotel, where you’ll board a climate-controlled vehicle destined for Potstojna Cave. On arrival here, you’ll board an electric train and embark on a journey through one of Slovenia’s most popular attractions.

Dramatic stalactite formations, limestone curtains, and mysterious passages demand attention and cavernous voids seem to swallow you whole. After the train ride, spend some time exploring the caverns on foot before you proceed to your second stop.

Following a short journey, arrive at Predjama Castle — a mysterious, 800-year-old landmark perched impregnably at the mouth of a hillside cave. Take a guided tour of the unconquerable castle, the largest cave-castle in the world, to see armory and richly furnished rooms, and to learn the legend of Erasmus, the Slovenian rebel associated with the castle.

Your tour concludes with drop-off back at your Ljubljana hotel.

Traveler Tips


  • "Nevertheless we found the cave really cool to look at, although it is fairly cold and every so often you would get dripped on from the stalactites so I would recommend wearing a waterproof jacket and/or a hat!" See review

Beautiful places, bad tour

There is no doubt that the attractions on this tour are utterly beautiful. However, it is advertised on my e ticket a hotel pick up and drop off. I was called at the time of the pick up by the company roundabout that our pick up location was different, which was no problem because the pick up location was only a few minutes away. When booking this I had in mind the convenience of my 82 year old grandmother who is in good shape for her age but at the end of the day doesn’t have much in her. So after stairs in the castle and the hour walk that is steep from time to time, the guide told the group that they will only be dropping off at 2 of the 4 pick up locations because it is more convenient for him. He dropped us off on the other side of the city. Also while on the tour of the castle the guide rushed the “small group” of 18 from room to room leaving no time to really experience for oneself this amazing structure and it’s surroundings. Even after the tour was over he left no time to take pictures or buy souvenirs, rushing the people to the toilet and bus. Overall the landmarks are beautiful but the guide allowed no room for the tour to be truly enjoyed.

This was our first tour in Slovenia...

This was our first tour in Slovenia and with Luka, the tour guide to Predjama Castle and Postojna Cave. It was a very knowledgeable and interesting tour which we both really enjoyed. There was only me and my boyfriend and two other people on this tour so was a lot nicer than having a huge group. We first drove to Predjama Castle and Luka showed us around, explaining the history of the castle and then as we finished earlier than expected we then drove to the cave and caught an earlier tour. The cave is a huge tourist attraction in Slovenia which was evidenced by the restaurants, hotel and souvenir shops dotted around as you walked to the cave. As you walked in your photo was also taken which you could buy at the end for 5 EUR. The tour first starts by boarding a train which took you deep into the cave and lasted around 10 minutes. It was a really cool experience and saved you from walking for about an hour or so. After the train ride finished you would join a huge group of tourists walking through the cave where a guide would stop the group every 15 minutes or so to talk about the cave and its formations. We thought that it was too large a group and got very crowded and would have prefered if only around 30 people were allowed in each tour group - but it is a tourist attraction and they want to make money so what can you do! Nevertheless we found the cave really cool to look at, although it is fairly cold and every so often you would get dripped on from the stalactites so I would recommend wearing a waterproof jacket and/or a hat! The tour finished and we boarded the train back to the start and then met the group and drove back to Ljubljana. It would have been nice to have some time to look around the stores surrounding the cave but that was our only complaint. Once again we enjoyed our trip with Luka from Roundabout!

I joined the tour on 7th Aug but forget the name of the guide. The guide is funny, flexible and informative. The Cave is fantastic. As the tour includes two parts, the time for taking rest in between two parts is too short. On the whole, the trip is good as the guide is very informative and presents in an attractive way.

Really a good tour by Mathew, out guide and driver!! Funny guy with lots of information on almost everything you want to know about here! The cave is awesome and we visited the Predjama castle late in the evening, stay out of the crowd. I really enjoy it! Worth the price definitely, highly recommend.

There was a mess up on our pick up and we ended up starting about an hour late. The caves are overcrowded and we were in a group of 130 English speakers. You could not hear the guide and he only stopped to give us info twice. Whereas there were about 15 stations for the audio tour. The castle and caves are worth seeing but try to avoid the crowds
