Private tour guide Ivana

Ivana B.

Ljubljana, Slovenia

Hi! My name is Ivana and I have been working as a guide in Slovenia for many years.

After travels all over the world throughout years and working in tourism, I have come to the conclusion that Slovenia really is my favourite place and I love to share its secrets with people that come here, hungry for unique experiences and personal contact. I believe some of the best places in Slovenia can be hard to find without local guides and knowledge and I wish to offer just that.

Curious by nature, there is no topic I am not interested in and I have many interests and passions that range from outdoor activities, history, cuisine, and wine to vintage cars, politics, and literature. So, I am happy to give you an insight on local life, history or any other topic and I am also welcoming what I can learn from you.

I have lived in Slovenia for most of my life, except a few episodes in Australia chasing the dream of "perpetual summer" during my studies of English. As a student I also worked with exchange students coming to Slovenia and tried myself as a teacher of English for a little while, but my restless nature was calling me elsewhere, so I have found myself at home in tourism. I have been working as a certified tourist guide for quite a few years now.

Slovenia can be a perfect location for any sort of traveller - there is something for everyone. I am happy to adjust the tour to your interest and organise activities, best suited to you. I like flexibility and nothing makes me happier than satisfied guests, who enjoy our country's wealth of sights. I love the outdoor and I can say that one of my most happy places are the Slovenian Alps.

A very important issue for me is nature conservation and sustainability. As the first recipient of the Green Microphone Award in 2018, an award for tourist guides who are considered to be the voice of responsible tourism, I feel it is important to try and have a positive impact in the tourism industry. I try to encourage my guests to act responsibly and think about the choices they can make as tourists to contribute to local communities and the environment.

I am looking forward to meeting you, wherever in the world you might come from, and I will be happy to be a part of your holiday and make it special!
