Gorazd ("George") was super! He regaled the 4 of us (2 couples) with his lively, articulate, fascinating historical, cultural, & political insights about Slovenia on the drive from our cruise ship at Koper to Lake Bled, where he curated some great photo ops & escorted us on a delightful wooden boat-ride to the iconic island's hilltop church. We then drove to the capital Ljubljana for an elegant and delicious canal-side lunch before returning us to the port. He was charming, gracious, and lots of fun.
