. After using private guides in many countries, I can confidently state that Rok is the finest guide we have ever had the pleasure of working with. His encyclopedic knowledge covers every subject, and his information and stories are engaging and entertaining. He is extremely flexible and goes to great lengths to customize his tours to our interests. This tour went to Postonja and Predjama as well as delightful out-of-the-way villages—a unique and special day. He has our highest recommendation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Carol and Akiva, Once more Thank You for your nice feedback and using my services again. I had great two days in your company despite not perfect weather. I wish you great time in Europe and hope to see you again. Kind regards, Rok

Jan KrentzUnited States
We loved our Lake Bled and Julian Alps tour with Rok. He gave excellent instructions on where to meet, showed up on time, and was responsive to my email inquiries. He had a comfortable car for the long commute from Koper. Rok is a pleasant tour guide who geared the tour towards our interest (nature) and stayed with us when we went to the Lake Bled island church and castle. We also enjoyed the trip to Lake Bohinj and overlook of the Julian Alps, which is not covered by other group tours.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jan. It trully was a great day. Kind regards to all three. Rok

Melissa JessupUnited States
We were a group of 4 of varying ages, tastes and athletic ability. Somehow he managed to keep us all happy. His knowledge of the area and the history was impressive and his love of his native land was evident. The weather was not the best for several of our days, but he was always upbeat and kept us upbeat as well. I recommend Rok without reservation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Melissa! It was a pleasure to have You all over here! Kind regards to Mary Ann, Dave and Paul as well. Kind regards, Rok

Heather EllisUnited States
We took an amazing tour with Rok to discover the main sites of Ljubljana. He was very knowledgeable and accommodating, and we really enjoyed our time with him. He answered all of our questions and not only showed us the city, but also gave us lots of recommendations for things to do and places to eat at later during our stay. Ljubljana is absolutely charming (even in the rain!), and booking a tour with Rok will really help you get the most out of your visit.

AWESOME is the best way to describe our exceptional tour guide, Rok P. We were most impressed by Rok's extensive knowledge, patience in answering our questions, as well as his flexibility in listening to our interests and meeting our needs. He was very engaging, interesting and eager to share his beloved city with us. Rok arrived early at our apartment and we knew immediately that we were in for a very special morning. It was so educational and delightful, we did not want the tour to end.

Very interesting with pleasant guide
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Linda! It was nice time on the coast! Best regards, Rok
This tour guide was phenomenal! Rok Puppis met us ahead of time at the agreed upon place where we discussed what the schedule would look like. Rok gave us ideas but we could decide what the actual tour would include. He was very flexible. Wherever we walked in Ljubljana, Rok could tell us about it. We were very satisfied with the tour. The booking on toursbylocals.com was also very easy and quick. I am going to book my next tour (guide) via them!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Andrei, Alec and Derek, Thank you for bookig this tour with me. It realy was a pleasure having you on walk tour through the old town. Im happy that sightseeing was not too tiring for boys and that you all liked it. Also I hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Ljubljana as well. Thank you for everything and I hope to see you back in Ljubljana on another occasion. Kind regards, Rok
Randy WolpertUnited States
Can't recommend Rok or this tour highly enough. His English is flawless and he is incredibly knowledgable about his country and European history. It was the first stop on our cruise and easily the best tour and tour guide we had. He is passionate about history, Slovenia and making sure that your day is perfect. Since US international cell phone plans are rip-offs, his mobile wi-fi was a thoughtful touch and a welcome bonus.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Randy Thank you for your nice review. We had a great day in the mountains and Im happy all of you enjoyed it. If you ever need anything elsr in our part of the world I will be happy to assist. Kind regards Rok
Anthony DilevaUnited States

We completed the Julian Alps with Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj tour with Rok while docked in Koper, Slovenia during a 34 day mediterranean cruise. Without doubt, this was the highlight of our 34 days. Rok was magnificent and the weather was kind. The scenery was superb and Rok provided expert commentary and detailed local input which was much appreciated. A fabulous experience - we'll be back!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gary and others! Thank you for your nice review. It trully was excellent day and Im happy you enjoyed it! Lookibg forward meeting you on another tour in Slovenia! Kind regards Rok

Fred BrackUnited States
We can highly recommend a tour with Rok. He had a wonderful spacious Mercedes van, and he took us to interesting places while offering detailed commentary. We especially enjoyed the private tour and tasting at the olive oil factory, and we were amazed at the quality of the wines at the Bordon winery and the delicious food they served us. These were very special features of Rok's most enjoyable tour of Koper.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Fred, Thank you for your review. Im happy to hear that you really enjoyed tasting tour of Slovenian Istria. Everything best to all. Rok

Rok is the BEST guide I have ever had the pleasure of touring with! Knowledgeable, personable, patient; his love of his country seeped through all descriptions. He is an expert in all things Slovenia and also had the best recommendations of local dishes and flavors. We had a wide range of interests, ages, and mobilities in our group, and Rok accommodated everyone's needs. Rok left all with the best experience imaginable and a shared love for Slovenia.

Craig ShermanUnited States
Rok conveyed his knowledge of Ljubljana and Slovenian history with enthusiasm and passion. Ljubljana ended up being one of the favorite parts of our four week European tour in large part because of the wonderful job Rok did in escorting us through the old city over several hours. We recommended Rok very highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Craig, Thank you for nice words. Im realy proud that Ljubljana was one of the highlights on the tour! Thank you and kind regards,Rok
