Private tour guide Vid

Vid L.

Gozd Martuljek, Slovenia

I am a professional tourist guide with my own tourist and transport company.

I am 30 years old and already for 10 years I am guiding guests around my and foreign neighbor countries from all around the world. I also guided politicians from Germany, the Thai prime minister and our Slovenian President. I like individual and FIT (driver & guide) guiding a lot. Personal contact is my specialty.

Tourism is my big passion and way of life.

Why? However, part of my family works as a tourist guides in tourism ever since my birth. I was traveling with them even when I was a small boy and it was natural, that in the future I may enter into that business as well.

I am very adoptable to your needs and interest. No matter, if you are an adventurer or if you like nature, if you are interested into society and culture. Because my life education, I can highlight you theme, you wish to be highlighted during your travel. That's my unique feature and that keeps me a bit different from other guides.

I started and finished my education in Ljubljana. I was always attracted by sociology, politics and problems of society. To find answers to those problems, I entered Ljubljana University, Faculty of Social Sciences. There I finished program Theoretical Analytical Political Science. During my studies I focused on ecology and green politics. In my free time at home, I like to read philosophy and history.

For 9 years I played piano in music school. Big part of my high school days was also marked by hard rock music band Mental Picture. Band existed for five years and I was vocalist there. Band became quite famous through its concerts in Slovenia, Austria and Italy; however in 2004 it was invited to sign up a contract with Nuclear Blast publishing house (one of the biggest music label companies for rock musicians in the world). Unfortunately all members of the band, including me, decided that education is more important than the music. That decision meant the end for a music band.

I like nature. Before I decided for social sciences studies, I wanted to be a biologist. Three of my biggest hobbies are hiking, mountaineering and mountain biking. I have big interest in wildlife photography, herbs and space exploration also. To come close to a nature as possible, I am also glider pilot in sports airport Alpine Fly Centre Lesce - Bled and I possess skipper license for a boat up to 24 meters. However more than a half of my country surface is covered with trees, title of my final graduation work was "Forests as a subject of political conflicts". I graduated with best possible grade. That work presents best fusion between my hobbies and my professional education.

I can describe my character as self confident and calm. I am a happy person. In the future I want to enter into politics with the highlight on ecological issues, however not now. Philosophy of Deep ecology is very close to my values. For myself I want to finish doctorate also. But at the moment I am doing job, which makes me fortunate and satisfies me completely.

So contact me. I want to give you quality and relaxing tour, which will remain in your memory for a very long time.

A Recent Review of this guide

I would give Vid more stars if tours by locals allowed it! We have had a lot of really good guides from tours by locals , but Vid stands out as one of the very best. He showed us so much of his beautiful country after walking us to the " high points" of Ljubljana to pursue on our own as we had two more days in Slovenia. He adapted the tour to our needs immediately. I can't even describe to you how beautiful the Julian Alps are. I highly recommend Vid as your guide when you are in Slovenia.
