Our guide was on time and pleasant. He gave us an overall assessment of the Slovenia on our way to Bled. The tour was great. We had plenty of time to see everything. The lake is beautiful as was the castle.
Unfortunately it was raining when we went so it did put a big dampener on the whole trip. We were dropped off at the boat crossing by guide given our ticket and told where to go, not what we expected. The little island is nice you get roughly 45mins which is just about enough. The trip around to the castle takes about 15-20mins depending on traffic, which i can imagine can be a lot worse. The castle isnt hugh and apart from views it was slightly disappointing. The whole trip was a bit flat nit a good way to spend my birthday.
Slovenia Explorer was excellent. They were informative and punctual. The sites were just beautiful.
This was probably one of the best day tours we have been on. It was a small group of 8 people and the driver/guide had a very sound knowledge of Slovenia, it's history and current situation. He gave us ample free time to have a look around Lake Bled and the castle and then took us to another part of the lake for more photo opps. We only did the half day tour and could not be happier with the experience.
Very glad to have done this trip having missed it on my last trip to Slovenia. It is a very beautiful place.
