This guide is wonderful - very knowledgeable, personable and organized. She arranged for a comfortable van and driver for our group of six. She made special arrangements to accommodate a participant with limited mobility. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed this custom tailored tour of Trieste and Miramar's castle. I highly recommend this guide.

Danijela is the most knowledgeable guide I have ever known. She spent more than 8 hours not only showing us the beautiful Lake Bled and the charming city of Ljubljana, but she is a wealth of information about the history and customs of Slovenia. She is so fun, and I would love to spent more time with her.

Danijela provided a highly personalized and informed tour, which she adjusted as the day went on to accommodate our wishes and also a very bad and long thunderstorm. She was enthusiastic, personable and well informed, especially in the history of the area. We highly recommend her.

Danijela was incredible from the beginning of the travel planning to execution of our tour. We were six travelers with some different interests and Danijela did a wonderful job with creating just the right itinerary. Danijela was a great communicator through email during our planning stages and personally during our tour. She was also a very informative guide with great local information and historical background of the areas we were in. Thank you Danijela!

Danijela was amazing. You could tell her love for the location and she imparted the same on us! She was pleasant and knowledgeable, but more importantly, took into account our group needs and managed them with excellence. We loved her and recommend her most highly!

Danijela is a very nice woman who is very knowledgable about Trieste. She is eager to share her knowledge. She has lived through the most recent history of this history rich border city. She provides a fascinating cultural view of Trieste from her perspective as a Slovenian, and a woman married to an Italian from the area.

Danijela was a wonderful guide and company for a day. Her knowledge of history and geography was most impressive. I learned so much with her presentation. She covered everything that was on the itinerary, very timely no rushing,, we completed everything exactly on time. It was especially good for me, as a solo traveler, that she picked me up at my hotel and dropped me off whatever I wanted to be dropped. Danijela is so friendly, I feel like I've met a new friend.

Danijela provided a wonderful tour of Slovenia. She shared her extensive knowledge of this beautiful country: it's history, culture, people, and environment. She has a special love for her country, and it shows in her vivid explanations. We toured both Ljubljana and Bled. Both were stunning. A great day!

I am so happy that I booked this tour!! Danijela was lovely and great to chat with. She has such a great knowledge of Trieste, Slovenia, and all the surrounding areas. She showed me so many interesting things, and since the tour was private she was able to flex it and show me things that were most important to me. I would highly recommend this tour or any tour with Danijela.

I booked 2 separate private tours with Danijela for my 2 days in Trieste. I am so glad that I did this, she was able to customize my 2 days for me and to show me all of the things that were of interest to me. I would love to take a tour again with Danijela, she was so comfortable to speak with and she knows everything about Trieste and the beautiful surrounding area. My tours with Danijela really made my visit to Trieste amazing.

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!

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.

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.

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
