A taste of everything!

Borut was a great tour guide. He kept it fun, gave honest answers to questions, and as a native Slovenian was very knowledgeable about everywhere we went and about the rest of the country as well! We saw a lot in 1 day but Borut created a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere for our group of 4 people. The caves were amazing - definitely worth the trip. Seeing the horses in Lipica provided a nice little break in the peaceful countryside. Piran was a cute little town and I do think we spent enough time there - there’s certainly more to see and do than we had time for, but we got the gist of it. While driving to our next destination Borut played Slovenian music, so I think we had a rich cultural experience overall. I would highly recommend this tour if you want to see an amazing cave system and a bit of the seaside. This tour gives you a taste of the different kinds of experiences Slovenia has to offer - castle, countryside, seaside, horses, caves, food (wine & prosciutto), and music!

Excellent day trip. Lots of variety, and enough time to really enjoy each spot. Our guide, Miha, was great. He was funny and knowledgeable. This was the second trip I did with Roundabout. Both were fantastic.

Skocjan Caves is a mandatory visit for anyone touring in Slovenia. The guide was excellent and when the group discovered that we had already all been to one stop, the guide proposed a different stop to do instead.

Very nice tour in Slovenia, accompanied by a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Tiran is worth being seen, even in the strong wind as that allows to see how it is like in all seasons. This tour is an opportunity to see the western part of the country, which is beautiful.

We had a great day with our guide Primoz. We enjoyed the caves and were fortunate to get to see the horses at the Lipcia Stud Farm up close and personal. We had a relaxing snack with the Teran wine and Karst procuitto. Piran was beautiful with some free time allowing a nice walk and an excellent lunch. Our final stop at Predjama Castle provided a great photo opportunity. Primoz was very knowledgeable and pleasant.

Primož was a fantastic tour guide friendly, knowledgeable and organised. It felt like we packed a lot of great attractions and some beautiful locations into one day. Primož was also very adaptable and let us have a say in where we wanted to go in between the main attractions. Overall we had a great day.

Really from the beginning to the very end we add fun. Our group was amazing and Tusi (our guide) was spectacular. Breathtaking time in Škocjan cave system, white horses at Lipica and ending with beautiful sea and seafood at Piran. Even the car ride was great since we were always taking and laughing
