Tarun did an excellent job organising our transfers around Slovenia. Where he was not able to make it, he ensured that someone he trusted was there at the appointed time and knew exactly what they had to do. Tarun and the other people we met through Tarun were all very knowledgeable about Slovenia and, the places he booked for us, were amazing including Lepa Vida wines, our Soca River rafting experience and Broken Bones Distillery. He ensured we were at the appropriate places by the required time to make each of the tours and took us to some lovely out of the way places that as a tourist we would not have seen. He was an easy person to be around and had a great sense of fun and humour.

Tarun also ensured we got to do the things that I had found before engaging him and wanted to do like a day yacht trip from Izola south along the Slovenian coast to Croatia and back again on board, "Alice in Waterland". Damjan and Fredrica were the perfect hosts and couldn't do enough for us and our fussy group of eaters. I had also booked our accommodation all of which turned out to be fantastic.

I think the best thing about working with Tarun is he would have been happy to organise the whole trip for us or to work with me and fit in additional things around what I'd organised or wanted to do. He was very flexible.

Everyone we met in Slovenia were amazing. Kind, engaging and generous. The food in Slovenia is incredible. Beautiful fresh produce cooked to perfection. The water is very clean and the environment pristine. There are a number of fabulous walks, lakes and other adventures. I really thoroughly enjoyed our time in Slovenia and would go back again in a heartbeat and ask Tarun to help me organise the trip again.

Lepa Vida Boutique Winery. We loved our trip to this small winery. In addition to the wine tasting they created some amazing food to have with it and said, if they had of known in advance, they could have also catered to any allergies or intolerances. We tried each of their wines and loved them all. Walked away with 6 bottles of wine none of which made it home - they were too good. The winery owner was amazing, fantastic knowledge of wine, the winery's history and the local area. Couldn't recommend this winery too highly

Visiting Izola and Strunjan

We did a tour down the Slovenia coast past Piran and onto Croatia on "Alice in Waterland" a beautiful 51 foot yacht. The yacht owners, Damjan and Fredrica made sure our day was perfect with breakfast and coffee when we boarded the yacht and a swim stop in a sheltered cove just north of Piran followed by an amazing lunch, beautiful wines and gins. They made sure that the trip was perfect in every way.
