    Slovenia was spectacular- a great pre or post tour from the cruise terminal in Trieste!
    They work with your schedule and were able to spend time both at Lake Bled and at the Capital! We will be back!

    We recently cruised from Trieste and needed transportation to Venice for 9 people following the cruise. Veda Bus provided us with 2 vans and met us in Trieste once we disembarked. We were early to get off the ship. The drivers were already waiting for us.

    We had gotten several quotes for the service. They were by far the most economical.

    The only slight problem we did have was payment. Veda Bus requested a wire transfer. We did have some issues with this on our end. Another payment option would have been easier.

    Also, be aware that they may not be able to drop you directly at your hotel in Venice, as there is limited automobile access.

    The tour together with Lubos was very interesting and a very good overview about Triest. He cared about all participants and their capabilities. Excellent knowledge about Triest. Very recommendable tour.

    On the positive side, the small bus is modern and comfortable, well air-conditioned in the extreme summer heat, and the audio commentary is not only crystal clear but interesting as well.

    On the negative side is the relatively small frequency of only 5 or 6 round trip circuits a day, which makes it unsuitable for the classic hop-on hop-off.

    However, if the tourist takes it as a round trip or - as we did - one way to Miramare Castle and back to the city by boat, it is very worthwhile.

    Because of capacity limitations, reservations for the initial departure time should me made in advance.

    I will start my review by stating that I honestly have never left a review positive or negative for any activity I have done for my many travels. However I felt compelled to leave an excellent review to support Katrin and the business she is working hard to build. I cannot say enough good things about her and this experience. She is a proud Slovenian woman running and her own winery in a small town in the hills overlooking Trieste. I could not have asked for a more authentic, educational, and fun wine tasting experience. This is not some manufactured experience from a corporation. You really feel like you are learning from a local expert and have been invited into someone’s home. On the day we went it was rainy but that didn’t hamper our experience at all. Although, if you are lucky with good weather the view from her vineyard is incredible overlooking the water. She set us up inside her wine cellar and treated us to unique wines and the most incredible board of cheeses, meats, and fruits. If you are looking to really immerse yourself into the local culture and want to try unique wines you won’t find anywhere else, then this wine tasting is for you!

    My daughter and I had a wonderful and memorable experience with Elbrich. We were picked up at Gorizia train station in Friuli and then drove to beautiful scenic vineyard sites. Elbrich chose a beautiful castle for a wine tasting - the Castelo di Spessa. We toured the bunker and tasted 4 of their wines. Had a delicious plate of meats and cheeses too! Then we went to Miramare Castle on the Adriatic coast. We were dropped off in Trieste. Elbrich is extremely knowledgeable and very personable. We definitely recommend hiring her!

    A very thorough tour of the area. We were able to hike through vineyards, walk through Cividale with private wine tasting. Dejan was a great guide with lots of recent history that helped us understand the complex history of the area. Also he gave us great tips for a Trieste. Overall, the tour was a great day and helped make our entire stay in Trieste better.

    So we planned a stop in Trieste on our way from Venice to Split, Croatia. We knew a little. The city was the home of Chef Lydia Bastianich and many national flags flew there over the centuries. It turned to be a wonderful surprise. We found beautiful architecture, wide streets, reasonable prices, friendly people and even more complex history than we had imagined.

    Helping us sort through the centuries of politics, wars, occupations and developmnets was our guide Demian Sem. He was wonderful. Demien is a Slovenian (next door to Trieste) and explained how Slovenia, Venice, Italy, the Hapsburgs, Ottomans, Romans, Italian Fascists, NAZI's, WWII and others figured in the city's history.

    Demien punctuated his narrative with personal anecdotes and the local color you can only see with a native. He explained the more interesting architecture, buildings, their significance and their role in the city's history, economy and culture. He also has a great sense of humor and managed to entertain us on a personal level as well.

    We like to use local guides, especially on 1st visits. Damien not only met our expectations, he exceeded them on every criteria. If you book a local tour ask for Demian Sem. You will benefit from his extensive knowledge and interestig delivery.

    We booked this tour with Explore Friuli. It was absolutely fantastic. We toured the city of Trieste, visited Miramare Castle and finished with a wonderful wine tour and tasting in the beautiful Collio area. Elbrich is a very pleasant, knowledgeable guide (excellent English) who explained the interesting history of Trieste and Miramare. The drive through the hilly Collio region was beautiful. It was a great way to spend a day. We enjoyed our time with Elbrich and would definitely recommend this tour!

    Great experience! We were picked up directly in the lobby of our hotel in Trieste. Our tour guide was Gregor.

    The giant cave is simply a must-do. We wanted to visit the Duino Castle, which was unexpectedly closed. Instead, our guide took us to Miramar Castle — speak of upgrades! Overall, wholeheartedly recommend this tour.

    My mother loves the Lipizzaner horses so I found this tour for the two of us to try as our shore excursion. Peter, the driver and owner of the tour company, communicated with us in advance to let us know where to meet him off of our cruise ship (it was incredibly easy to find him). On our journey to the farm he showed us the sights and told us some of the history as we passed. Upon arrival at the farm he made sure to purchase the tickets for us and he gave us a phone with which to call him when we were ready to be picked up. In advance, Peter also made sure to tell us that there was an English language tour at a certain time so he arranged our day so we wouldn't miss that specific time slot. The tour took us to the stables to visit the mares, the stallions and the studs. Afterwards there was an art gallery, souvenir shop and Lippizaner history museum to explore as well. On the property there's also a hotel and a casino but we didn't partake. There wasn't a show that day but if there had been it would have only been a few euros more to see the show on top of the tour ticket.

    When we were about an hour away from being ready we just gave Peter a call and he headed back to get us and we used our time to have lunch at the farm's cafe.

    Peter was very accommodating and offered to drive us to other interesting locations if we were interested but one event for the day was enough for us so he took us back to the port and our ship directly.
