A Recent Review of this tour

Vid was simply an amazing tour guide. He was very engaging and knowledgeable. He was a great storyteller and was able to answer all of the questions from my family which ranged from politics to sports. It was fun to see how many people in the city he knew, and he took us to several places that we would have never known to visit. Vid definitely enhanced our visit to Ljubljana, and my family would all say that his tour was the best part of our visit to this amazing city.
