We did a tour yesterday with Danijela, travelling from Piran to Ljubljana and stopping at Predjama Castle and Postdonja Caves along the way. This was a five star tour with Danielja. It was very good. Danielja was very informative and interesting. We felt very comfortable with her and very much enjoyed the day. We would highly recommend her!

Danijela delighted us with the custom 5-hour tour that we requested - the spectacular seaside Habsburg castle of Miramare, followed by a walking tour of the old center of the ancient port of Trieste. All the while she educated us about the sites and their history, while we peppered her with questions about life in Slovenia and its recent history. Danijela was attentive to our comfort and made sure we returned to our starting point by the requested time. We had a wonderful day and would choose her again!
Warm, welcoming, took great trouble to ensure we got what we wanted. Was knowledgeable. thoughtful and very helpful
Knowledgeable, new her stuff, was thoughtful and considerate, went out of her way to help answer questions and make adjustments.

Danijela is a wonderful guide. She showed us Trieste and Piran (her home town) with much love and enthusiasm for both places, as both are very special to her. She was also very accommodating to us, making sure we were ok with what she was suggesting and what we wanted to do. We not only had a wonderful guide but lovely conversation with Danijela, as she is so personable and really just lovely to spend time with.
Tuvimos con Daniela un tour fantástico en Kotor y Piran! Nos enseñó su bonito país y aprendimos mucho! Pasamos un gran día

Fantastic tour! Danijela was incredibly knowledgeable about her home country and its history. Piran is a beautiful city with an easy walking tour. The salt pan bike ride was short and flat, and the informative tour of the pans was wonderful. We capped off the day with a home based winery tasting overlooking the salt pans from a hilltop. Great wine, delicious meats and cheeses, and a spectacular view. A wonderful day in Slovenia!

It has been 7 months since our incredible day tour with Danijela. When we speak of our Med cruise we always remember this day as the highlight of highlights. Danijela organized a tour that was individualized for our desires including a visit to Piran; the Salt Flats, a special wine tasting at a family winery and drive through the wonderful countryside. Danijela's exuberance was contagious and she engagingly conveyed her knowledge of the area. This was such a delight. We want to return to Slovenia.
Danijela was very knowledgeable about Trieste and did a great job of giving us an overview of the city. We learned a great deal about the history and culture of Trieste and were able to identify sites to return to for more in depth exploration. Her english was excellent and her pride in and appreciation for Trieste was much appreciated.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! We really had a wonderful day. Regards, Danijela
Danijela was an absolutely AMAZING tour guide! She went to so much effort to find my grandmothers grave in Trieste for me and take me there! It was so special! She was also so knowledgeable and passionate about the city and it was such a pleasure having her as our tour guide! We had constant smiles on our faces all day! Very thankful for her efforts and we highly recommend her if you want a personal, fun and knowledgeable tour of such a wonderful city!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you :), it was a true pleasure knowing you and also taking you through this beautiful town and its history. All the best to you two, Hugs Danijela

Danijela made us feel very welcome in Slovenia! She loves her country and it shows! We now also feel very good about her country. Our tour was full of information and tasty treats to boot! We loved seeing the beauty of Slovenia with Danijela and would highly recommend her!
Very interesting and informative tour. Our guide, Danijela obviously loves her job - her passion and interest were evident. We would recommend her highly.

Danijela was a super guide. Her knowledge of the area is superb but more importantly her passion of her country is infectious. We all enjoyed her day long tour. In fact it was the best tour guide we had in our nine days of the cruise. I would highly recommend Danijela.
We could not have asked for a more accommodating and knowledgeable guide whose love for Slovenia was obvious. Danijela provided us with an informative and interesting tour and by the time our tour was over we felt we had spent a few relaxing hours with a good friend. Thank you for introducing us to Slovenia and for making our first day so easy and enjoyable. Janine, Stuart, Jenny and Robert

Wow! If you ever have a chance to have Danijela as your tour guide, by all means use her. We had a 2 hour ride to Bled from our cruise ship and she kept us captivated talking about her country of Slovenia the entire time. From the history to the economy to what they like to eat-Danijela gave us a wonderful look at life in a country we knew nothing about. Her love and pride in her country helped us to be interested in every sight that she took us to visit.

This full-day tour was a highlight of our trip to Trieste. Danielle was knowledgeable and made extra efforts to include the best hidden gems of the surrounding area. Pit an is beautiful and not to be missed. The bicycle ride into the salt pans combines nauture with the history of the common people. These were truly placed that one would call "off the beaten tourist path" and are enriching as well as beautiful. Highly recommended for someone seeking a unique experience of high quality.

Although the tram was not working, Danijela offered several good alternatives, and we decided to go to the Miramar Castle. The trip was beautiful and Danijela knows so much about Trieste and Maximilian. Danijela goes the extra mile to customize the trip for you. We enjoyed her expert guidance and would highly recommend her.

Dave and I found Danijela to be the perfect guide. We had arranged to be picked up in Trieste and driven to Rovinj and on the way also visit Piran, salt pans and Groznjan. Weather wise the day was wet and cold but Danijela was able to take us on an informative and interesting walk around Piran. She also took us to a lovely country restaurant for lunch where we had beautiful home made and locally grown food and wine. A brilliant day. Definitely reccommend.

Could not have had a better tour or guide! Danijela is a charming, articulate, and intelligent young woman. As we drove, she entertained us with her knowledge of local geology, history, and culture. We finished with a visit to her picturesque home town of Piran, where we shared a memorable lunch at a local cafe. If all our Tours by Locals experiences are this good, we will be using this site for a long time.
Jim KyleUnited States
We loved this tour. Danijela did a great job and provided a great van and driver. We told her we wanted to eat where the locals eat, so she took us to an incredible restaurant in a small town outside of Koper. We have been using the tours on our cruise line, but these private tours are SO much better. Thank you, Danijela, for a wonderful day in beautiful Slovenia.
Donald LoebUnited States
Danijela was a wonderful guide. We asked for particular attention to the Jewish history of Trieste. She went above and beyond, bringing in an expert on one of the building we visited. Also, she got us access to areas that were closed to the general public. Best of all, she was very pleasant to have as company for two days.
