Piran attracts many visitors from all over the world with its medieval charm on the tiny streets full of Venetian influence.

Our first stop will be at one of the best view points of Piran - the Walls of Piran that have been the town’s quiet guardians since the 15th century. You will be able to see as far as Croatia and Italy, and if you are lucky, all the way to the Alps.

Your guide will take you through the maze of small streets, while symbols and architecture of Venice will accompany you on every step and the colourful buildings will not let you lift your finger off the camera’s shutter. Surrounded by the Adriatic Sea, Piran’s Mediterranean culture is reflected also in numerous cafes and restaurants where you can enjoy some excellent coffee and a refreshing scoop of gelato.

The tour is planned with some free time which you can use to enjoy the atmosphere and wander the streets on your own, go shopping, or visit some of Piran’s museums.

Frequently Asked Questions

I am traveling alone, how can I book my trip?

The process is the same — Contact us and we will find you a group to go on the trip with. It’s also much easier if you have some flexibility in your travel dates, so let us know. And if you wish, we can also arrange a private shore excursion for you..

Where is the pickup point of the excursions?

The pickup point for our trips is at the Koper Port, but if you want us to pick you up at a different location, we can arrange that for an additional charge of 9€ per booking. Because the drivers will be driving between multiple pick-up locations, there is a possibility of being late up to 20 minutes. We will try to be as on time as possible, but we kindly ask you to be patient.

What clothes should I wear for the trip? Do I have to bring anything extra?

Your clothes should reflect the season and the daily forecasted weather. That’s why you should check the forecast one day before, and take clothes accordingly. For trips closer to the Alps, remember to take an extra layer of clothing, because the temperatures and the weather can change much quicker than elsewhere. In caves, the temperature is constant throughout the year, around 10 degrees celsius at most, so take warmer clothes if you are going there in summer.

Is lunch in a restaurant scheduled as part of the excursion, or do I have to bring my own food?

Yes, mostly we have a time slot free to stop at a nearby local restaurant for lunch. But of course, if you prefer, pack some food with you and you can eat whenever and wherever you want. That might save some time, so you can then do more sightseeing on the excursion.

Are there any restaurants for those with food restrictions?

In general, yes. But it depends on the severity of your restrictions. Vegetarians can find something almost everywhere, but vegans and others can find it difficult, especially in rural areas and smaller towns. It is best to call in advance and check if they are able to accommodate you.

How fit do I need to be?

Most trips are fairly easy and can also be adapted to your level of fitness. For specific answers about certain trips, note their difficulty level and check the trip-specific FAQ.

What do “extras” mean?

There are many different things to do at every destination you’ll visit during our trips. Because not all are possible to do in one go, we decided to give you the option of choosing between them, listing them as extras. For example, on a trip to Lake Bled, you can choose to visit the Bled Castle, go for a traditional “pletna” boat ride to the church island, or just take a scenic walk along the lake. You can choose the activities beforehand, so we contact the local provider and book your spot. Everyone has a chance to enjoy their shore excursion in their own unique way and love it.

I am traveling on a short budget and cannot afford the extras. Is the trip still worth it?

Of course! Even if you find the entrance tickets to certain places too expensive, our guides will make sure you’ll leave our trip fully satisfied. Slovenia is full of options, and a lot of them are hidden to the foreigner. That’s why our guides can always recommend some hidden spots and beautiful viewpoints, or different interesting activities you can do for free. Not only that it’s gonna be cheaper, you’ll also probably have much more space for yourself, without any other tourists.

Can I have some alone time?

Our goal is to accommodate every type of traveler. That’s why there’s always time for you to explore on your own, or just chill at some beautiful spot the guide can recommend to you. There are no limitations if it doesn’t interfere with being on time when we have the guide that wants you to regroup. On our shore excursions, everyone can have their own exciting adventure.
