Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet a driver at your Zagreb hotel or a central location (see Booking details for more information about hotel pickup), then begin the journey to Ljubljana in a climate-controlled vehicle, crossing the border into Slovenia en route. Upon arrival in Ljubljana, stretch your legs on a walking tour of the center, learning about Ljubljana history, architecture, and culture along the way.

See a quirky cement bridge decorated with dragons, long a symbol of Ljubljana, and board a glassed-in funicular railway up to the Ljubljana Castle, a medieval fortress with views across the city.

From the castle, continue to Lake Bled, with views to the Julian Alps, a rocky stretch of mountain peaks that extend from Slovenia to Italy. You have an aerial perspective on the lake from the ramparts of Bled Castle, which is perched high above the water on a rocky outcropping. Descend to the small town at the edge of Lake Bled for a walk by the water, or stop in a local café to try the local specialty, a cake layered with fragrant vanilla custard.

Following your time at Lake Bled, begin the return trip to Zagreb, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

Awesome day trip - don’t miss this!
Melissa_Z

What an awesome day!! Ljubljana (j=i so now you can pronounce it lol) was an adorable town and I really enjoyed spending time there. The walking tour was roughly 2 hours then an hour free to explore on your own and eat lunch. I’d have preferred a shorter tour and more free time - an hour felt really rushed. If you can make it - just get a snack there and wait until Lake Bled to eat a meal. Lake Bled was beautiful and I enjoyed exploring the castle. There was ample time there to explore and eat, and you definitely must try the cake there. Skip the poppyseed version in Ljubljana and get the creamy version at Bled.

The Slovenia Experience in a Day

It was a beautiful day in Slovenia. It’s the end of travel season, and so my small group tour became a private tour with Maja, and it did not disappoint. From the funicular in Ljubljana to creme cakes at Lake Bled, this tour was a fantastic experience. With a great tour guide, beautiful locations, and good food, you can’t go wrong!

This was a great tour worth the long drive of three hours from Zagreb. Maja, our driver, was very nice and helpful, very pleasant personality. Our tour guide in Ljubljana, Alenka, was very knowledgeable and had a great personality as well. Both, Ljubljana and Bled Castle offered very beautiful views, in my opinion this was a worth booking tour.

Maja was warm and gracious. We met a local guide, Ilenka (s/p), in Ljubljana and she was just as helpful and courteous. Lake Bled is definitely something you want to see before you leave this Earth! FunFact: Ljubljana is one of the cleanest & greenest cities in the world!

Ljubljana and Lake Bled Full Day Excursion from Zagreb

My wife and I really enjoyed this day trip to Ljubljana and Lake Bled. Our driver, Luka, who was also a guide for a part of the trip, arrived in good time to pick us up in a comfortable minibus, where there were 5 of us altogether. He was full of interesting information and was kind and courteous throughout. When we arrived in Ljubljana, we were met by our local guide for the walking tour of Ljubljana, Urša, who was excellent at explaining the history and legends of the area. She even brought us to a free tasting of locally produced liquors and honeys which went down very well, and knew her stuff when she was asked any questions. We then met up with our driver Luka again after lunch and we travelled to Bled Castle and Lake Bled, who was our guide for this part of the tour. He was very knowledgable in the history of the area, and made sure all of us were comfortable when accessing some of the steeper parts of the castle pathway, before we were safely transported back to Zagreb in the evening. Overall, this was an excellent experience, and I would highly recommend it to anyone planning this day trip from Zagreb.
