Mateja did a great job organizing our tour. She chose interesting places to visit and provided a wealth of information about the sites and about the history of Slovenia; as this was our first visit. The Postojna Cave was a unique experience; the Predjama Castle was most interesting; and we found Ljubljana a charming city. As we did not want to take a long time for lunch, Mateja took us to a sidewalk cart for a "typical local lunch"; which was a lot of fun. We would not hesitate to recommend Mateja.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Norman, thank you a lot for your great review, I am sure it is going to be very helpful to my future travelers. We realy had a great time, hope you will come back. If you need any information about our area, please do not hesitate to contact me! Wish you a lot of joyful tours, with love from Ljubljana, Mateja
Robin TaylorUnited States
Mateja was an excellent guide, and her wonderful stories about the history of Slovenia brought the area to life. She picked us up promptly at our cruise ship port and drove us to Ljubljana, where she introduced us to this very charming city. Given our limited time because of our cruise, she was wonderful in tailoring the tour to our needs. We skipped the caves so that we had time to see Predjama Castle and were so happy we did - it was a hit with the kids and the grandparents. Thank you, Mateja!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robin, thank you very much for your review. I am happy you have enjoyed the tour. You have a lovely family and I am very glad you gave me a chance to spend time with you! Wish you all great tours around the world and hope to see you in Slovenia again. With love, mateja
Jess GellerUnited States
Mateja was a wonderful tour guide! She picked us up at cruise ship pier in Koper right on time and we went to Ljubljana. During the drive, Mateja spoke to us about the Slovenia. The tour around Ljubjana was excellent. What a beautiful city! The second half of the day, we went to Postjana cave (amazing!) and Predjama Castle. Mateja was relaxed throughout the day and allowed us to go at our pace. Because of this tour and Mateja, we want to go back to Ljubjana and spend more time there.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jess, so nice to read your review and also to hear you have enjoyed the day in Slovenia. I like hearing you are planning to come back- YES!!! You were all such a lovely party and thank YOU for a wonderful day. Love to all of you, Mateja

We had a wonderful time with Mateja in our Koper excursion. She was very professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. The tour that she gave us made me appreciate Koper that I vow to come back to Koper/Slovenia and stay for at least one week. Postojna cave and Predjama castle were wonderful. I wished we had more time at Ljubljana old town! She suggested that we had lunch at Ljubljana that day since there was a local festival that day. That was a great suggestion. Thank you Mateja!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rosemarie, Thank you very much for your great review, I am sure it is going to be very helpful to my future travelers. I am so happy to hear you enjoyed the short time in Slovenia. It was my pleasure to be your local guide, such a joyful party! Wish you many happy tours all around the world, with love, mateja
Mateja met our group of six at the pier in Koper. Our first impression was the vehicle - a very comfortable van - more than enough room for all. She toured us about Predjama castle and cave then on to Llubljana's old town. A busy day out of Koper, Mateja adjusted our schedule so that we avoided that bus loads of tourists, thus improving our brief stay. She is very knowledgeable which made the visit to the castle and the old town so much more enjoyable and educational. We highly recommend Mateja.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bill, so happy to read your review. I still remember your joyful party and the time we have spent together! Happy you have enjoyed time with me. Wish you all many pleasant tours, with love, Mateja
We love Mateja! We were a group of six adults and had a one day private excursion with her. She is a perfect tour/driver guide. We highly recommend her. She spoke English well and she had our needs met. We fell in love with Slovenia because of how she described it. We saw places we would not have discovered without her. She is an excellent driver and we felt so safe in her van. We would want to visit Slovenia again and take her as our guide. Thanks, Mateja for the wonderful time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Olga and friends, I am very greatful I had a chance to present to you a tiny part of Slovenia: unique limestone terrain -above and below. I thank you for allowing me to show you also the off the beaten track roads. I would be very honoured if you came back and meet me for even more of Slovenia. Wish a great time on your future tours and God bless you!

Mateja provided an excellent tour. She was very knowledgeable about Ljubljana and provide insights about the capital. The market place was interesting and she also provided a good snack of local sausage and bread along with a type of strudel and a great cake for desert it was delicious. Trieste was very interesting including the connection to James Joyce and the tour of the city. Mateja tour even overcame the rain. Fun was had by all.
