Miha organized a fantastic trip for my wife and my honeymoon in Slovenia. He was super flexible in accommodating our interests of outdoors activities (hiking, biking, rafting) with high quality dining options and boutique hotels, allowing us to pack a ton into our 10-day trip without feeling overwhelmed nor rushed. We also felt like we were able to get a good sense of the different regional characteristics of each place we visited due to the way Miha put our trip together.

Miha quickly responded to our requests/questions and crafted a trip that let us have flexibility on the day, without having to worry about any of the small stuff (car rentals, hotel reservations, even where to park).

We could give a full list of our highlights but that would be too long; however, we must give a high recommendation to Soča Splash rafting in Bovec, Winestronaut wine tours in the Vipava Valley, and Majerija for dinner.

Hoping to visit Slovenia again!
