Do we need to reserve a spot for the free tour?
No. No booking required. We know how many guides to have ready.
Do we need to reserve a spot for scheduled tours like the Ljubljana Communist Tour or Medieval Town & Castle Tour?
No. No booking is required for scheduled tours. Simply show up and join on the spot. (advance booking is only required for private tours)
Is there anything special we must bring on the tour?
The route itself is flat and easy to walk so normal shoes are fine. Its always good to have water with you ( a must in summer), though we do have a drinking fountain along the way. Also, seeing as Ljubljana is one of the wettest capitals in Europe, its always a good idea to have an umbrella in your bag. We do.
Do you run tours in heavy rain or snow?
Of course. We run tours 365 days a year regardless of weather. Rain or snow, we are there. Ok .. lets say if weather drops below -10c dont come (never happens). ... and we do have the option of shelter in most stops along the way.
Do you give free tours in Spanish? German? or any other language?
No. Free tours are provided in English only. We offer tours in other languages as private tours for a fare price.
Are the tours child / baby carriage / wheelchair friendly?
Excluding the "Medieval Tales & Castle Tour" which includes a walk up to the castle, all of our tours follow a completely flat route and are easily accessible to wheelchairs and baby strollers. On private tours that include the castle we typically use the funicular to ride up to the castle which is in itself (separate purchase of funicular ticket is required).
Does the free tour include drink or toilet stops?
There are 2 public toilets along the route, and one near our meeting point, so you can always run off for a minute and come back. There is also a fresh drinking fountain where we stop by the cathedral, about halfway through the tour.
If the tours are free, how do the guides earn their pay?
All free tours operate on voluntary tips basis. This means you pay what you want, if you feel the guide deserves it. This ensures the guide has incentive to deliver a really really good tour and it is for this reason that the quality of presentation on free tours excells. Only the best guides are accepted and survive :)
Do you run tours on Christmas or New Years day?
365 days a year :) In fact, holiday tours are so nice because its quiet in town.
Would I be able to do the 11am tour and still make it to Bled or the caves that day?
Absolutely. We can even arrange half-day tours for our guests at excellent last0minute prices. Unbeatable in town.
Do you provide private free tours?
Sorry. No. If you'd like to hire us for a private tour, such tours must be booked in advance.
Are all your guides licensed to guide in Slovenia?
