      Review by Jeanne and Will from USA, visited us in September 2016

      I am Slovenian and always wanted to visit Slovenia. I am not a person that likes tourist traps or can sit still and just relax. My wife found this wonderful hiking trip, 8 day Best Walks in Slovenia guided tour. It was fantastic. We hiked from late morning until about 2:00 or 3:00 each day, finishing off with a late lunch and short hike back to the van. We usually returned between 5:00 and 6:00 each day. The lunches were fantastic local food often at a hiking hut or winery or other unique venue. I rarely wanted dinner as I was full from lunch. We had a diverse group of 7 with a wide range of hiking capabilities from true mountaineers to casual hikers. Miha (our guide) quickly assessed each person’s capabilities and figured out a way to challenge each one of us. The best part was that Miha had the ability and patience to get individuals to overcome their fears and experience much more than they would if they allowed their fear control them. With a small group, we could be flexible in what hikes we took and on what days. If the weather was going to be poor in one location, we would modify the schedule and adjust accordingly. Thus, we were able to have the best adventure and experience the best views possible. I highly recommend Slotrips and would go again in a heartbeat. It was a fantastic value for the money. We would recommend this tour to anyone who loves the great outdoors and hiking adventures!
