What a wonderful day with Vasja! Wow! I was amazed! He made a tremendous effort to guiding us around some of the most beautiful parts of Slovenia. Vasja’s personality is perfect for guiding he has a funny and kind character. There were just 3 people in the group so it was small and things ran smoothly. There was snowfall the previous day making the mountains beyond beautiful! Vasja had a lot of passion for Slovenia and was always willing to stop the car if we wanted to take pictures. The day consisted of walks and viewpoints. I loved the beautiful green/blue water on the soca with the majestic view of mountains in the background. We never felt rushed and if we had any questions Vasja was happy to answer with interesting information. We all enjoyed so much!! Thank you Vasja you were amazing!! This trip gave me a great impression of Slovenia!
