Fun, Friendly, Fantastic. George took us touring for two days. It was not only informative, but fun. He is proud of his country; he knows the history and explains it in an interesting way. He has a comfortable vehicle; is an excellent driver; prompt; knowledgeable, and very patient. He is just the BEST!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much! I'm just a humble servant and best reward always is a review from a traveller like you. Hope to see your group again, it was fun.
We enjoyed the tour immensely. Our guide provided very useful information about the places visited and made suggestions so that our tour experience would be enjoyed to the maximum!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for coming and your kind attitude, the pleasure was all mine. Stay well and hope to see you around again!

Gorazd ("George") was super! He regaled the 4 of us (2 couples) with his lively, articulate, fascinating historical, cultural, & political insights about Slovenia on the drive from our cruise ship at Koper to Lake Bled, where he curated some great photo ops & escorted us on a delightful wooden boat-ride to the iconic island's hilltop church. We then drove to the capital Ljubljana for an elegant and delicious canal-side lunch before returning us to the port. He was charming, gracious, and lots of fun.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mary, for coming and your kind attitude! That was fun. Hope to see you around again!

Our guide, Gorazd, was very good. We visited Skocjan Caves, Piran And Trieste. All facets of the tour were handled beautifully and he was an excellent driver. We never felt rushed....he accommodated our special needs. No hesitancy in recommending his services.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for a positive review Howard! We aim to please ;-)

George was a great guide and our family agreed he was one of the highlights of our 8 country 3 week trip. He was flexible, extremely informative, didn't rush and accommodated 3 different plans for 3 different groups of our 6 member family. We highly recommend him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for coming and your kind attitude. I had a great pleasure showing you around and hope to see you around again!

Amazing day with George driving around the city. He did an amazing job explaining all of the rich history of the town to our 3 children (16, 12 and 10) and we thoroughly enjoyed our excursion. Would highly recommend this tour.

David JacobUnited States
Gorazd was a wonderful guide. Not only did he explain everything about the complicated history of Croatia, but we discussed all sorts things. It was like hanging out with a friend. The night before our trip to Plitvice Lakes, we went out for a beer and talk, and during the long drive we never ran out of things to discuss.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hahaha..you just gave me a thought, should name the tour "debate" or something :-) Thank you David! Hope to see you again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for coming and your kind review! Hope to see you around again, there's more to do. Over. ;-)
Great Tour Guide! Thanks so much George for your showing us your beautiful country and for keeping us safe!! Also you tried to give us "The Best" knowledge of your country. Thanks again Teresa and Mary
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! It was my privilege to show you around Sloveni. Stay well!
Jeffrey HansenUnited States
Gorazd was a great guide. he took us all around the city and taught us a great dial about Slovania. we had a great time and saw a beautiful country. I wish we had stayed longer.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! You and your whole family were great too!
Janice ChengHong Kong
The tour is a good start for the first time visit to see how beautiful Slovenia is. George is informative and flexible. Though the weather is not perfect, but still good enough to see the beauty of this country. I will definitely be back again and join the festival organised in Ljubljana.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm so glad of your respond - we certainly weren't lucky with the weather this time. Great you'll have another opportunity here!
Gorazd was great. We were really pleased with the service we received and we were able to accomplish a lot in a relatively short period of time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! Had a great time with you too. Stay well!
Edyie (Edith Meyers) RobUnited States
Wonderful tour made fabulous by an excellent guide - Gorazd. Traveling to Slovenia was nothing short of wonderful as the country is truly picturesque, friendly, and contains all that one would want from a vacation. Sunbathing on the Adriatic, dining and sightseeing in Ljubljana, castles, dramatic churches, the Julian Alps, biking, canyoning, kayaking, paragliding, flyfishing, and discovering one's ancestry - all this was made possible by Gorazd who felt like part of the family when our tour ended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Edyie, I had a great time with your family, you just were amazing. My greetings to all, will miss you! Gorazd
Ed WertheimUnited States
This was an outstanding tour. We would highly recommend it. Gorazd listened and asked a lot of questions and adapted the tour as he identified our interests. We did not do some of the most popular sites and Gorazd quickly understood us and added stops that were unique to our interests. We learned a lot about Slovenian history and current issues. He drove cautiously which we appreciated. Another small thing...at lunch no alcohol. Well done, Gorazd, and best wishes
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I had a great pleasure to be with you Ed, and your lovely wife! Wish you many more sunny days.
Rosemary M.United States
Gorazd picked us up at the Port on time. He speaks English very well and he is very conscientious. The 3 star rating is because the organization of the requested itinerary could have been arranged more efficiently.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Rosemary for your review. I agree several things went wrong that day. Did my best and was happy to be rewarded from you all at the end. With regards, Gorazd
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We worked with the guide to make sure that all itinerary possibilities should be told to the traveller to keep them from being surprised.
JoAnn JerasUnited States
Outstanding service. Wonderful personalized service. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi JoAnn, the pleasure was all mine! Do send me photos please.. Regards, G.

The four of us had a marvelous day with "George". He was engaging, informative, flexible and FUN. Took us to exactly the type of places that we wanted to shop and eat. By the end of the day we felt like we were friends. We were hesitant about fitting five of us into a Prius, but it was no problem. Our booking was very last minute as the tour we had booked with another company had been cancelled because of Slovenia regulations. That was our luck - we got a gem with George.
This was our first Tours by Locals, and just what we had hoped for. Slovenia is a beautiful country and Gorazd knows it extremely well. He designed a tour for us that included the Julian Alps and Soca Valley as well as the hiking. We were impressed with the hike he chose for us when it turned out there was still too much snow on the usual route. He had even tried it out for us a few days before. We enjoyed our conversations with Gorazd as well-from history to nature to hockey. An excellent guide.
Michael GuntherUnited States
Having a guide like Gorazd M. is one of the things that makes "tours like locals" such a special concept, the tour to Predjama Castle and Postojna Cave felt more like a grand adventure with an old friend. The tour did not disappoint, Predjama and Postojna are well established tourist locations in Slovenia. Along the way, Gorazd pointed out numerous points of interest and historical significance. Great lunch at a local cafe completed the day. Bring your travel stories and enjoy a fun day in Slovenia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Michael, I've enjoyed your company every moment, learned quite some from you too. Hope to see you again, stay well!
Felix SoHong Kong
He did the great job, event we suddenly have some request. He also can provide some good choice for us.

This is my second tour with Gorazd. This time he showed me the beautiful Slovene coast and coastal towns. The trip was again very well planned and he was an excellent and reliable guide as to be expected. I really enjoyed the trip with him and highly recommend him and this tour!
Jennifer KangUnited Kingdom
Very nice, kind, considerate and reliable! Gorazd is also very knowledgeable about the history of Slovenia and information about tourist sites. Highly recommended tour guide!
I had a tailor-made tour of the Skocjan cave, Predjama castle and Postojna cave with Gorazd and had a great time in spite of the rain. The schedule was perfectly arranged and details very well explained. He is very considerate and attentive. He has excellent knowledge of the sights and history. I would like to thank him for the wonderful trip and I highly recommend him and the tour, and, most importantly, Slovenia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanx Delia, I beleive you will be coming into this country again!
Jeriel LeeHong Kong
I just had a day tour with Gorazd, and I really enjoyed the day. He is very attentive, accomodating, and he arranged the order and time of tour very well. He is punctual, and he managed to take me back to the train station to catch my train in time. During the tour, he is very keen to explain all relevant info regarding the place we visit, as well as all aspects of Slovenia. Prior to the trip, he answered my emails very promptly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was truly my pleasure and I look forward to see you around again!
