Drive was very long to...
Donna_R
, Jul 2022
Drive was very long to Lake Bled. Driver didn’t talk much. We were told we were not stopping along the way, not going to castle as better pics from below. Many things we were not going to do. We stopped at Lake Bled for some free time to take pictures. In the writeup it was stated under Exclusions for the boat ride. There wasn’t even an option to take the boat out to the island as we were not given enough time to do it. Why would it be included under exclusions as if it were an option from the company. If you include something as an exclusions means not covered in overall cost and pay on your own. Disappointing for that aspect of your. Scenery was nice.

Not worth the money

Not as advertised. The tour was supposed to be from 8am-8pm according to the Viator page. We were picked up at 9am and dropped off just after 4pm. On the way to Lake Bled the guide took a detour to run an errand while we sat in the hot van. Once we got to Lake Bled he gave us 45 minutes to sightsee. Barely enough time to find a restroom and refreshments, forget about enjoying the beautiful lake. On our way to Ljubljana, the tour guide provided his racist opinions on the British, Chinese and Indian people. Only an hour and a half in Ljubljana, again not enough time to enjoy the sights and eat lunch. On the way back to Trieste he stopped to get gas!!! Unbelievable. The only reason I’m giving this tour 2 stars is because Slovenia is such a beautiful country. The tour itself gets 0.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
Dear Amy, although we deeply believe that everyone is entitled to their opinion, we feel unjustly attacked by yours and therefore we absolutely need to reply. If you would read the tour description before joining the tour you would notice that is says that the tour is approximately 7 hours long. 8am-8pm are operating hours of our office. You should always read the tour description thoroughly before joining the tour. We really do not know what is wrong with the fact that the guide stopped at the gas station to refill the van. I am not sure if you are aware that the gas prices increased and our guides drive many kilometres per day, therefore they need to refill the van more often. It only takes a minute or two. Lake Bled & Ljubljana is our best-selling tour and most of the customers provide excellent comments and reviews. If you felt unhappy during the tour you should spoke with your guide who would be more than happy to answer your questions or try to fulfil your wishes. All it takes is a bit of patience and understanding. We hope you take this message with kind heart, like it has been intended.

Exploring Slovania's countryside and city as well as Lake Bled was an unexpected surprise. What an amazing part of the world. There is a lot of driving in this tour (unfortunately we experienced some traffic, it happens)but enjoyed seeing a part of the world. Highly recommend this tour.

Must do tour from Italy

Natasha was a wonderful English speaking guide and very accommodating. Only 3 other couples which was perfect size for touring together. Trieste and Lake Bled are exceptionally beautiful and steeped in history -a must see to get a feel for the beauty of Slovenia and yet so accessible from Trieste, Italy

Case of false advertising, we were dumped into another group for $$$$

We were tossed in with another tour group from a different city (Koper) and cruise line to make the group 30 people not the 12 or less that we were promised.. Then we were forced to return early to accommodate the cruise group that we were not a part of. Lake Bled is a fairy tale come true.

One Beautiful Day in Slovenia
Mylene_M
, May 2022
Trip to Slovenia from Trieste was amazing except from the miscommunication part about the pick up place from the tour guide but overall, excursion to Lake Bled was quite an experience! Our eyes feasted on the picturesque scenery of the Lake, the only regret was that we didn’t have enough time to bask in its beauty because of our limited time, which only means we will be back! The old town of Ljubljana holds significant history of its past glory which was explained very well by our lady tour guide. Our tour driver - David is a friendly, respectful and very patient guy who drove us back to Trieste. He went over and above our expectation of him, very caring and helped with our luggage and never left us until we’re all settled in our hotel. Slovenia is worth our time and we would love to be back!

We had a great trip. We were lucky and it was just my husband and I. We spent 45 mins at lake bled, which was enough time for a stroll and pictures and then coffee and lovely desserts. Then Dejan walked us around the city and told us a few things before giving us 2 hours to have lunch and walk around ourselves. Lovely day.

Best day trip ever!

Can't tell you how much we enjoyed this day trip to Slovenia! Dejan was superb! A native of Slovenia, he provided most interesting information about his country and history. He picked us up on schedule at the hotel, and has a very comfortable van. Took us to Lake Bled and let us explore it for an hour, and then drove us to Llubjana to enjoy lunch and walk the city. Slovenia is a beautiful country, and we would highly recommend visiting if you are in Trieste. Be sure and use KoporTours!

This one day trip from Trieste to Lake Bled & Ljubljana was done very well. Lake Bled was picturesque even in the rain and Ljubljana was worth visiting as well. The guide was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Communications with the tour office was also very good. Would definitely recommend this trip!

Our tour guide/driver was Bojan and he was awesome! We thought at first it might be a little awkward with only two of us, but he was so nice and flexible and he really wanted us to enjoy Slovenia. He told us a lot about the history and was so nice to offer to take photos of us. It was a great trip! Would definitely recommend him and this tour.

Now I am spoiled....
John_H
, Oct 2019
My wife and I travel to Europe, stay a few days in each town we visit. In the past we used local tours for side trips. Usually these are big bus or minivans with a minimum dozen people. This tour was much different! Out host picked us up on time at the hotel in a sedan. Then we picked up one more tourist and the three of us were driven to Lake Bled where our guide shepherded us to the boat shuttle. Afterwards we were driven to Ljubljana and our guide took us on a walking tour of the central area. Then back to Trieste. We felt like our guide was a family relative showing us around his part of the world. Now we have been on a small personal tour I will seek these out in our future jaunts.

Bojau is a wonderful driver

Our driver. Bojau, was on time, very friendly and a good driver. Bojau made sure we saw all the high-lites of the city and Lake Bled. He did not rush us when taking photo's or enjoying the beautiful scenery. He gave us information about his country and his way of life. Bojau truly cares about his passengers, their safety, and that we enjoyed our tour.

Beyond expectations

This was one of the best tours we have done. Thanks to our fantastic tour guide Nermin (AKA Nero), who went above and beyond, we had a spectacular day exploring the treasures of Slovenia. Nermin was knowledgable, friendly and willing to answer any question big or small. The tour company was also very accommodating, going ahead with the tour even though there were only two of us joining from Trieste on that day. We would highly recommend them.
