Vid is a first rate tour guide. My wife has been a licensed tour guide for 25 years so her expectations are quite high. Vid exceeded them easily. This was a full day tour and vid and I corresponded well before the tour to make sure the tour was tailored to our desires. Then, he was very flexible the day of the tour, as we adjusted things. Vid is a true treasure. You won't go wrong by hiring him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review Mr. Morris! I was a big pleasure guiding you in Slovenia. I wish all of you safe and beautiful trip in next days!

Outstanding!! Vid was exactly what we were looking for---very knowledgeable, excellent language skills, very personable. Couldn't be better!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much! It was special day!
If only we could give Vid 10 stars, because he deserves them! We had an EXCELLENT day with Vid touring through the mountains in Slovenia. He was a careful driver who entertained and informed us throughout the entire day. He is kind and charismatic and nothing was too much trouble for him. We all enjoyed our day with him, and agreed that he is the best tour guide we've ever had. Thank you, Vid, for a fantastic day.

We had a wonerful two days with Vid in Slovenia. My friend and I wanted to see specific sights and places and Vid designed a perfect personal tour for us. He was prompt picking us up at the hotel and covered everything we requested and even more! He was also prompt in answering all my emails while I was planning the trip. He was upbeat, knowledgeable, patient and helpful. I would highly recommend Vid if you are visiting Ljubljana. A very professional tour guide and kind and grateful person. Donna

Vid was outstanding!!! We had a wonderful time touring around Slovenia with Vid. He was very pleasant and extremely knowledgeable. I was a little anxious since we had never used Tours by Locals before. Don't be! We can't wait to return to Slovenia and you better believe that we'll be calling Vid for another tour!! We spent 3 weeks in the Mediterranean and this was one of our favorite tours out of all of them!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Donald, Thank you very much for all your kind words. All the best to you and your wife, Vid
Vid was an excellent guide and driver. The tour was special to me as it was to retrace part of my Uncle's escape from a German POW camp in Maribor to where he was flown to Italy from a partisan airfield in Otok. The weather was wet, but arrangements had been made to be met by locals at three points to learn about the partisans, and this escape. Well done on a great day Vid.

Vid organised a wonderful day for us "off the beaten track" as requested. We saw many different aspects of the country, so much was packed in to the day, but without feeling rushed. It will stay in our memories for a long time to come. Thank you Vid.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Margaret! You gave me so much back! I hope we will see each other again in the future. Yours Vid
Clay C.United States
This was a special tour planned to combine a transfer from Ljubljana to Maribor with a chance see some interesting places along the way. I knew this would be better than just taking the train, but I had no idea how much fun it would be to spend the day with Vid. He's a great guide whose knowledge about Slovenia is remarkable. I can highly recommend contacting Vid for whatever your touring needs might be in this wonderful country.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mr Clay. It was wonderful day with you and I hope that I will meet you again in future!
Sharon LawrenceCameron Park, CA, United States
Vid was a great guide. He said it was the first time he had led this tour in winter. I think he enjoyed it as much as we did. I recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Sharon. I really enjoyed this winter tour with you. Thank you, I wish you all the best!
Patrick GivensUnited States
We wanted a tour that focused on the countryside and specifically the local food and wines. It was a request that gave the guide a great deal of latitude. Vid planned an imaginative tour including a dazzling 5 course outdoor lunch over looking a broad vineyard vista and a visit to ancient village where a local farmer made his own wines and cheese. Our final tasting was at a wine cellar/ cave lighted with candles and the wine drawn from the barrels lining the walls. Loved the guide and tour. Patsy
Karen SchillingsUnited States
Vid was a VERY accommodating tour guide. My husband and I travelled to Slovenia to research my family history. Vid was able to take us to various villages that are connected to my family and to help us translate historical documents. I couldn't be more pleased with his service and flexibility. Vid not only showed us the BEAUTIFUL country of my ancestors, he also shared many interesting facts and legends about Slovenia. If you are going to Slovenia, don't hesitate to use Vid as your guide. He's GREAT!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Karen and Denny, thank you very much for nice review. I was enjoying with you too and I am sure we will see in future again. It was a tour, whic will remain in my memory forever

I wish you all the best and always welcome back again. Najlepsa hvala! Kind regards, your guide Vid.

We had the best tour we've ever had with Vid. First of all, we highly recommend booking a private tour. We were able to set our own pace and blew past large tour groups at major attractions. Vid was accommodating, knowledgeable and fun to be with. We hit all of the major attractions in about 3 hours and never felt rushed. Vid provided not only standard contextual history but also personal touches. He even provided info re our next stops and offered his personal info if we had Qs. Best tour guide ever!
