I have a good knowledge of major and minor tourist sights and of anything that is worth seeing or experiencing in Slovenia.
I hope you have high expectations of your tour guide! As a tour guide I am well presented and well spoken, a safe driver and I am conscientious, especially about punctuality. I have a good understanding of local, European and world history and current affairs.
I love exploring, so I know lots of small scenic roads, which I include in my tours as alternatives to major roads. Thus we pass through small villages and experience true Slovenia. I also know many excellent local restaurants and wine cellars.
I am a state licensed tour manager with plenty of experience and intimate knowledge of Slovenia and neighbouring countries (Croatia, Italy, Austria, Hungary, Slovak republic, Czech republic).
I am bilingual in Slovenian and English, I am fluent in Serbian, Croatian and Bosnian, I speak conversational German and Spanish, and basic French and Italian.
I studied abroad (Austria, USA, England, the Netherlands) and traveled extensively (Europe, USA, Mexico and Central America, south-east Asia, Africa and the Middle East) so I have a vast knowledge, deep respect and total awareness of foreign cultures.
I enjoy hiking and trekking, and apart from thorough knowledge of Slovenia's trails, I have done a lot of trekking around the world - including the Kilimanjaro, and I was the first Slovenian to successfully complete the Pacific Crest trail across the USA, from the Mexican up to the Canadian border.
I also have a lot of experience in bicycle touring, as I completed 3 large trips: across Europe - from Ljubljana to London across the Alps (2 months), around the Mediterranen sea (1 year, 3 continents, 15 countries) and across Africa (6 months, from Cape Town to Kilimanjaro).
I have written 2 travel books and lots of articles in Slovenia's newspapers and magazines.
I have a van to accommodate 8 passengers and a car accomodating up to 5 passengers. If you prefer public transport, we can take train or local bus, and I am happy to arrange cycling or hiking tours.
