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.

I absolutely loved this tour. I was booked onto this tour with my friend and we were expecting other people to be on it, but it was just me and my friend, so that was perfect. Maja, our driver and guide was so welcoming and friendly, informative about every question we asked about Croatia and Slovenia and easy to talk to. Ljubljana is a beautiful place and we saw the castle there as well as some other interesting places in the city. Lake Bled was absolutely stunning and to see it in the winter, surrounded by snow was a real treat. The castle here too is fantastic and gives amazing views over Lake Bled. We were comfortable all day and Maja was very accomodating. She took me to get some authentic Lake Bled Cake which was delicious and recommended other places to visit. Great tour if you want to see two of Slovenia's nicest places in one day. Definitely book!

Dear Madam, Thank you for reaching us out. We are really surprised and sorry to hear about your disappointment after the tour since we are committed to providing the highest level of service and great experience to our customers. In reply to your comment, we would like to point out that the visit to the Bled island and Pletna boat ride are not included in the tour you booked. If you look closely to our itinerary and voucher issued by Viator, you will see that the price includes the following: • Transport by air-conditioned vehicle • Walking Tour of Ljubljana • Funicular ride to Ljubljana Castle • Bled Castle admission ticket • Licensed tour guide • Hotel pick-up and drop-off (selected hotels only) and we feel that we delivered the same in full. As far as concerns the weather conditions, it is unfortunately beyond our control. In addition, the tour operates in all weather conditions and this is clearly stated on Viator's web page too. Best regards!

We were in a (very comfortable) car with one other traveler. Our guide — who was an excellent driver, as well — was the engaging and extremely knowledgeable Maya. She truly made the experience ‘beyond’! Ljubljana is a terrific, beckoning sort of city, small but large enough to really appeal. Maya’s enthusiasm, quietly stated, was infectious. My (historian) husband and I were impressed by her knowledge, which went beyond the ‘patter at each stop’ — Maya answered many of our questions, too. Her recommendations for restaurants were spot on (and we enjoyed our 1.5 hours to ‘wander on our own’ during and after lunch). Bled Lake is stunning, as is the castle above it. Worth the extra 45 minutes there and back (from Ljubljana). The car travel was fine, as the scenery was so beautiful throughout. Yes, perhaps a bit more $$ than we’d normally spend, but we still highly recommend this trip!

Awesome day trip - don’t miss this!

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.

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.

Ljubljana and Lake Bled Full Day Excursion from Zagreb
Michael_F

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.
