Things to know

It’s simple. All you have to do is write to us. If you want to travel solo, we will arrange the trip, so that it’s just for you. If you are looking for a company – let us know. We will try to find the right travel buddies for you!

On our tours, we want to adjust for your needs as much as possible. That’s why we use a few different accommodations with the same quality. The place of your stay depends on your preferences, budget and hotels’s availability, especially if we travel during peak season. But don’t worry about it! We will inform you in advance of all the details.

We provide transportation between all the locations listed in the tour offer. You can also add a ride to and from the airport for an additional fee – all you have to do is let us know in advance.

Everyone has different preferences, that is why we have decided to give you a free hand in choosing restaurants, this way everyone can eat what they want. We can recommend some places to you, and if you would like to eat at a particular restaurant, we can make a reservation for you – just let us know. The guide will also be happy to tell you where food is delicious. One thing is for sure – you will not go hungry!

A lot depends on how severe your restrictions are. Vegetarian meals are readily available in most restaurants. Vegan and gluten-free meals are harder to find, especially in suburbs, smaller towns, and villages. There probably won’t be dishes listed on the menu for more specific diets. However, you can always call the restaurant in advance or ask on the spot about not including harmful ingredients in your dish.

Slovenia is beautiful every time of the year, but you need to dress differently for each season, so check the weather forecast for your week of holiday before departing. In Slovenia, your guide will inform you every evening about the expected weather for the next day. But remember, weather in the Alps region can change from summer to winter in one day, so we recommend you take extra layers of clothing with you, including a waterproof jacket.

Our company respects the wishes of all kinds of travellers, so we definitely understand if you want to spend time on your own. As long as it doesn’t overlap with the group schedule, you can customize your trip in any way and spend some time on your own. Our priority isn’t rigidly following the itinerary but allowing every guest to feel comfortable and enjoy every aspect of their tour in Slovenia.
