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

Predjama grad lived up to expectation. Spectacular.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Don't rely on the car rental firm. They were late to drop the car off and forgot to collect to car at the drop off. The car itself was excellent. Modern and well maintained.

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

While I did not stay at large corporate hotels, neither were they small family run boutique. The option of hiring an electric vehicle might be an option worth exploring.

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

Excellent. 1. The UK interface of the company was exemplary and I would recommend the firm based on this. Andy, who I dealt with was fantastic and was a credit to the company. 2. The price is reasonable. 3. Local suppliers were generally well chosen. The hotels I stayed in were pleasant. The AC at Marina Hotel did not work, but this was a minor issue. Possibly, given I wanted to drop the car off at Trieste airport, a larger car rental for with a depot at the airport may have proved easier. The failure of car pick up proved quite stressful,.

Hi Damon, I am so glad that you enjoyed your trip to Slovenia. I was however concerned to read about your experience with the hire car drop off arrangements which sounded quite out of character for our local supplier. I checked with them and they explained that the representative sent to meet you and collect the car had been stuck on the motorway in a traffic jam due to an accident that happened on the section from Postojna to Koper. I am told that they contacted you and provided exact information for you to park the car and leave the keys and documents at the Airport Information Desk. The car was collected a few hours later and I can tell you that everything was OK (i.e. no problems). In light of the stress caused they have agreed to refund one day's rental as a gesture of goodwill.

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

We both loved Lake Bled, so scenic and beautiful. Shame the weather wasn’t any good!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Make sure you leave plenty of time when leaving Izola for the airport. It took us nearly 4 hours due to road works & a car accident.

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

We thought that the country was quite affluent. We went to some castles & caves and everything was very clean & well appointed.

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

Everything went smoothly and as planned. Just the road closures & delays on the highway coming back to the airport which was not so good.

review 11 Oct 2018

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

The amazing number of trees in Slovenia. It is a very beautiful and varied country. We loved walking in the mountains in the north, around the lakes and then along the Adriatic coast. We were blessed with great weather - we took too many jumpers and too few t-shirts - which was a surprise for mid September.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Having a satnav could be a help. We just had a road map, but really only got lost once. We learned that their road numbers are on little signs at the road side and the main direction signs do not include road numbers. Also stick to main roads. The small village roads (shown as white on our map) soon disappeared into gravel tracks pirouetting over the mountain.

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

Tourism is a major industry and we did our bit. Although it was a fly-drive vacation, we only drove between resorts: once there we walked.

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

A wonderful experience - we enjoyed every bit.
