Get picked up at your hotel or guesthouse at 8:30 AM, then drive to the caves as your guide informs you about Slovenia.

What people are saying about Ljubljana

Our guide Vasja was exceptional. We had the tour completely to ourselves and we really got do tailor the day to what we wanted to do. All of the tours during the day were great. Vasja helped us with everything from advice on what to visit, what to eat and activities we could do. He had so much knowledge about Slovenia and was very entertaining. We had a fantastic day and it was well worth the money. Would really recommend this tour especially if you don’t have long in Slovenia and want to squeeze lots in!

This tour was absolutely worth it and one of our favorite day trips during our time in Slovenia. Great value for the money! The cave system is fascinating and nothing like we've ever seen before. The medieval castle in the cliff is impressive. Fun fact: Jackie Chan's movie Armour of God (1986) was filmed here as well as scenes of the next season of The Witcher.

Our guide Klemen was super cool and told instructive things!! Both the castle and the caves are definitely worth a look. The stories behind it, also very interesting!

The guide was funny and relaxed and was good at telling. The cave was really beautiful and so was the castle.

Very worth seeing, super nice guide. The castle was presented in a very beautiful and child-friendly way.
