We did a full day tour with Vid last year and absolutely loved it. We learnt so much about Slovenia and saw some amazing scenery. Can't recommend him enough.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Louise. I enjoyed the day with you too!
A fantastic and very special tour that was specially tailored for us. We were so moved to visit this very special place which is an important part of Slovenia's history. Vid was perfect and showed us many things about the land and culture . He went out of his way to make sure we captured that special memory . We had the most perfect day !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dale, thank you so much!

Our tour with Vid was a highlight of our holiday. He modified the original itinerary to meet our preferences. He is well versed in Slovenian history, geography and folklore. He is personable, engaging and enthusiastic about his job. His driving and communication skills are excellent. Vid takes you to the best views of this spectacularly beautiful country and gives you the context of the location, both historical and cultural, to give meaning to the experience. We recommend Vid and this tour wholeheartedly

Joyce O.Henderson, HENDERSON, United States
I would give Vid more stars if tours by locals allowed it! We have had a lot of really good guides from tours by locals , but Vid stands out as one of the very best. He showed us so much of his beautiful country after walking us to the " high points" of Ljubljana to pursue on our own as we had two more days in Slovenia. He adapted the tour to our needs immediately. I can't even describe to you how beautiful the Julian Alps are. I highly recommend Vid as your guide when you are in Slovenia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joyce, thank you for your kind words. Elizabeta for 2019 will definitely take a good care of you! I hope to see you again also, when you and your husband will be back here. Best regards, Vid
Mark HuntUnited States
Vid was simply an amazing tour guide. He was very engaging and knowledgeable. He was a great storyteller and was able to answer all of the questions from my family which ranged from politics to sports. It was fun to see how many people in the city he knew, and he took us to several places that we would have never known to visit. Vid definitely enhanced our visit to Ljubljana, and my family would all say that his tour was the best part of our visit to this amazing city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your feedback, Mark and whole Family! Hope to meet you again in future!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sir, you were a bit unlucky with the weather. Sadly I as a guide can not control it, still I did my best to give you quality tour of my city.
Kay JohnsonUnited States
Vid was an exceptional tour guide. We were with hm an entire day and he gave us a fabulous overview of Slovenia. We would highly recommend him and hope we can return there soon.
Morris GarfinkleUnited States
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!
Morris GarfinkleUnited States
Vid was terrific. He knew everything from history to current events to places for ice cream. He was very interested in making sure our desires were fulfilled from well before the tour to the day of the tour itself. He English was fluent and easily understood. A definite jewel!

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
Donald GraceUnited States
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.
Robert HahnUnited States

We traveled with our family of 8. Vid was wonderful! He put together an excellent tour for us. His knowledge of Slovenia and the entire Balkans region is outstanding!

You are sure to be very pleased with Vid as your tour guide!

Margaret CloustonUnited Kingdom
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
