Petra Stanisa

In 2005, armed with genuine enthusiasm, passion for travel and 9 years of experience in the tourism business, I threw myself into the (Slovenian incoming tourism) game being able to offer travelers countless opportunities to discover Slovenia at reasonable prices, but most importantly, in an extremely original and flexible way.

I feel privileged not to say honored, to be able to share such a beautiful piece of Earth, Slovenia, and its neighboring area, with the rest of the world. I sincerely hope our paths cross soon, possibly over a delicious dinner at some local tavern with good Slovenian wine. Se vidimo!

Petra did a great job helping us to organize our trip to Slovenia! We did four tours in the five days we were there. Ljubljana was our home base and it is an amazing city. Our guide for the food tour was Jasmine and she was very fun! She gave us wonderful ideas for restaurants to visit. The Predjama castle and Postojna Cave were amazing! A must see! Tour guide, Val, was very knowledgeable and so friendly! We did a 1/2 day Bled Fairytale tour with Borut as our tour guide. We chose not to take the boat to the island since it was winter. The other 2 on the tour did take the boat and Borut was accommodating and made sure we had other things to do when they were on the island. However, the boat was 30 minutes late getting back and we waited at the pick up point in the cold. This made us late going up to the castle so by the time we got there it was dark and we couldn’t see the mountains. The last excursion was the Karst and Coast tour. This was by far our favorite day! We had a private tour with Borut and he was amazing! His knowledge of his country’s history is impressive. Since we were not interested in going to another cave he custom built our day. Strolling the streets of Piran and sipping wine at a cafe by the Adriatic Sea was our favorite part of all of these great tours!

Thank you for a great Slovenian vacation!
