1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Making friends with other families. Our kids have had an amazing time, which means the adults did too. Just the right balance of being in a group and doing your own thing. Loved the activities ! And Ljubljana was a great centre to be based from - very pretty, buzzy, loads of great bars and restaurants on a picture-perfect setting on the river.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Can't think of any. The pre-holiday information was great.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Liked that we went to proper local restaurants. We met local people - running the kayaking, whitewater rafting and paddle boarding - off the beaten track. We also went to the local swimming pool on our day off - great facilities.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Five stars. Vida and Janez were fab and really made the holiday. Organised and thoughtful. Not too in your face but great at building a group atmosphere. Great idea to build an adults ‘whatsapp ‘ group so we could share plans for the evening (no pressure to join in the plans but enabled us to meet up for drinks before dinner if you wanted), share photos of the trip etc. Kids made their own whatsapp group and arranged to meet up too. The driver for the trips was really flexible, happy to push back departure so we had longer at Lake Bled (the traffic getting there was really bad). Brett from the operator suggested a few extra days at lake bohinj - truly amazing place (and so much nicer than very crowded lake bled). We swam in the lake, hiked, rented bikes and cycled through the alpine meadows. Janez, thanks for the tips on what to do when we were at bohinj too!

Somewhat, especially eating out locally. The hotel could reduce the single use plastic at breakfast.

Our guide Vida is amazing. A real asset to the trip and your company. Smiling, knowledgable, friendly and efficient. She made everyday fun and took the time to check in with everyone.

There were numerous memorable things…. We did a great hike, SUP boarding, rafting & kayaking on beautiful Slovenian rivers; experiencing Lake Bled and the Postojna Caves

review 12 Aug 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Paddle boarding, white water rafting, kayaking and adventure park day in the mountains – sorry I couldn’t pick just one

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Bring a full mix of sports clothes; summer and some warmer clothes for when you are in the Mountains. Its an alpine climate so it can be unpredictable. Water bottle & good trainers.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, the activities where run with the environment as a priority. Also on the free day we did an optional tour and your company used a mini-bus instead of the larger bus; so always the right size for the right amount of people.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Our tour guides were amazing. Mojca and Jaka were lovely, very welcoming, approachable and very accommodating.
