Tour: #48588, Communist time in Ljubljana and Slovenia - a private guided sightseeing tour, Ljubljana, Slovenia    view tour
Date: Dec 29/19

The tour sounds to be for visitors with a very specific interest but I actually recommend it for anybody who wants to learn about Ljubljana and it's people a little bit more than the superficial. Mateja is a fantastic guide, extremely knowledgable about everything concerning her city and country. She is also very friendly and welcoming. The tour was very well set up, we saw and learned a lot and still had time for a coffee in a fantastic place to talk about history, culture, her own experiences.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ferenc, thank you very much for your great review. I am sure it is going to be helpful to my future travelers. Anyway, thank you for joining me while in Ljubljana. I truly enjoyed time with your son and you and it was great to share our experiences. Take care, lots of love to you both, all the best in 2020, Mateja

Date: Dec 16/19

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Mateja! In addition to being warm and friendly, she is incredibly knowledgeable. We started the day touring the Postojna Cave and then had a relaxing drive to the coast. Given her expertise, she knew all the nooks and crannies and clever ways for us to experience the charm of Piran. Given that it was a private tour, we were able to make adjustments based on our specific interests. I highly recommend Mateja! You won't be disappointed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ana and Eric, so happy to hear you have enjoyed our two days together. It was my pleasure to take you around my homecountry. Glad to hear you like it as well. Merry Christmas and lots of fun in year 2020, yours Mateja

Would gladly give more than five stars if they were available. Five of us had an outstanding day in Ljubljana. The tasting of food at lunchtime was wonderful. So many choices in a delightful setting. Mateja is very knowledgeable but gives you the history without any dryness. The city is beautiful and has many interesting books and crannies. Our boat ride was very nice. Would really recommend this tour.

The Food Delights tour with Mateja was one of the highlights of our visit to Ljubljana. She adjusted her tour according to what we had already seen of the city.

Her scope of interest is very wide, and she is able to entertain discussions on various contemporary issues. Our group of 6 all agree that Mateja is an exceptional guide.

Her candid sharing of her Slovenian experience and natural love for Ljubljana made the city's unique history tour be an experience to remember.

Date: Jul 29/19

Mateja was prompt to the hotel for the tour. Provided a lot of knowledge of Lake Bled, political and historical information and got us in to a nice hotel with a view to have the famous Cream Cake. She then help us negotiate with the "caves" to see the caves even though we had missed our tour the day before. Extremely accommodating. Excellent English and charming person. Would highly recommend her for tours in Slovenia.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dean, thank you for your review. I am sure it is going to be helpful to my future guests. I am happy you found my interpretation and information helpful. Hope you have enjoyed the rest of your time in Venice, all the best, Mateja

Mateja was a fantastic guide and ambassador for Ljubljana. We did Ljubljana at a glance - learning about the history of the city and seeing it through a local's eyes was a magical introduction to a wonderful city. Mateja shared all kinds of info like where we should go to eat and wine taste, taste pumpkin seed oil etc... Her english is superb. I would highly recommend her as a tour guide. Our favorite surprise were the art water fountains and the automatic milk dispenser near the market.

The absolute best tour guide we have ever had! We are a family of 5 with 3 teenage daughters, and she made it so much fun for us...even surprising us with a special sneak of the Lipizzaner horses. Meteja was so flexible as we were able to do exactly what our family wanted to do. She was also extremely knowledgeable of the city of Ljubljana as well as Bled Lake area, and all it's history, all the way to Trieste Italy. We are so grateful for the time she spent with us! Highly recommend Mateja!
