Guided tours provide you with interesting stories

Slovenia is a country that, despite its small size, is home to countless natural and cultural treasures. Wherever you decide to visit, you will encounter stunning scenery and vibrant cities that will amaze you with their more or less hidden attributes. Each place also harbours its own stories and secrets, which can be difficult to discover on your own. Therefore, it is worth experiencing guided tours, during which local tour guides will entertain you with stories that will shed a new and interesting light on the town’s special features.

Why choose a guided tour?

You may be wondering why you would even need a tour guide if you can find information about the place you are traveling to in guide books or online. Here are some reasons that might convince you to opt for a guided tour.  

During tours, both the guide and the participants are required to behave responsibly and keep a safe distance from each other.

Guided tours are fun and suitable for different groups: families, children, youth and the elderly. In this way, everyone can find something interesting that suits their taste.

Do you prefer exploring cities or experiencing nature on foot or by bike? Let experienced guides accompany you and keep you on course so that you will not get lost.

Discover interesting local stories, specialties and hidden gems that you otherwise would not explore by yourself. In the company of tour guides, buildings that one would otherwise pass by in a hurry come to life and share their fates and secrets.

Get to know the local gastronomy through guided tastings. Every specialty tastes best in the place where it originates. And when you hear the stories behind these dishes, you will enjoy them even more!

Guided tours can be tailored to you and your wishes. Guided tours can change your perception of the surroundings. You will be enriched with a new experience that will leave you with newfound respect and appreciation for the environment.

Choose individual and personalised experiences with a tour guide. During this kind of tour, the tour guide is entirely at your disposal, which makes for a unique and invaluable experience that will stay with you for life.

From cities to forests in the heart of Slovenia

In central Slovenia, there are quite a few historical towns with a rich past and many interesting stories, which make them worth exploring in the company of a tour guide. This region is also home to the capital city of Ljubljana, which you can get to know best by experiencing its everyday life. If you prefer vast green forests to city streets, you should definitely book a local guide who will safely lead you along forest paths and, afterwards, accompany you out of the forest.

Extraordinary city experiences

You can tour many Slovenian towns and cities with a local tour guide. These guides will show you their greatest jewels and share interesting stories about how locals used to live and how they live now. You can tour some cities located by rivers or on the coast from the water perspective too – in tourist boats, traditional rafts, or on modern stand-up paddle boards.
