Meeting point with our English speaking guide is at Piazzale Roma in Venice. At 09:00 hours you will board minivan or coach for the start of your exciting journey through Slovenia and Croatia. As you drive into neighbouring Slovenia with its breath-taking scenery, your first stop will be in Postojna Cave. It is also the greatest tourist attraction in Slovenia and one of the world’s largest karst monuments. It is the only cave in the world operating a cave train, so visitors can admire the immensity and the powerful allure of the underground world, where the geological past is revealed to visitors in its own way while riding a train. We will have lunch and afternoon drive to magical Bled. With immense natural beauty, Bled, together with its surroundings, ranks among the most beautiful alpine resorts, renowned for its mild, healing climate and thermal lake water.

Discover Slovenia’s enchanting mountain region as you travel to Bohinj Lake where we will see very attractive 700 years old Church of St. John the Baptist is surrounded by Bohinj Lake.

Many walls and ceilings are covered with 15th- and 16th-century frescoes. Bohinj Lake is completely different lake than Bled, you will see high forest around and feel peace in the air. We will take Cable car ride to the top of the Mount Vogel and admire a stunning view of the lake and Julian Alps mountain range, with the highest Slovene peak (Mt.Triglav) rising above it.

The 20th century brought the Secession style to its public buildings, parks and fountains emanating the lofty spirit of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. It can offer to its visitors the Baroque atmosphere of the Upper Town, picturesque open-air markets, diverse shopping facilities, and abundant selection of crafts.

Plitvice Lakes are Croatia’s first contribution to the UNESCO’s List of World Natural Heritage enlisted in 1979 and one of the Europe’s most beautiful nature parks situated in the mountainous region of Lika. A total of 16 lakes lying at different altitudes are separated by travertine barriers and linked by foamy waterfalls and cascades.

After some relaxed time and lunch enroute, we will proceed to National Park Krka, seventh National Park in Croatia. Upon arrival, head for the last set of falls before the river meets the sea, where the Skradinski Buk Falls form a spectacular multi-level cascade over travertine cliffs.

Loved our TOur

Review for: Egypt in Style

Sun Island Tours was very helpful and accessible whenever we had questions during the planning stage. The Cruise was wonderful, everything we had ever hoped for. We had a great time and met some wonderful people. The Greek Island package was great too! Sun Island choose the best hotels for us in Greece, and made sure that each hotel catered for us perfectly. In Santorini we wanted to stay at the beach, rather than the cliffside. All of our friends kept recommending the cliffside, for the caldera view. We spoke with Sun Island, and they ended up accepting our request for the beach, and choosing the perfect hotel with a view of the water. We were there for only two nights, so they organised a wonderful volcano trip with a sunset cruise on the first day, and we saw the sunset from Oia. The following night they recommended the perfect restaurant for us. The cruise in Croatia was wonderful. Very well organsied. Im glad we went for the deluve option which included touring in each destinations. The food was 5 star and sites were well beyond my dreams. What an amazing part of the world.

Just returned from a trip

Review for: Splendid Cruise Dubrovnik - Split

Just returned from a trip to Croatia and Spain with Sun Island Tours and loved every second of it. The cruise in Croatia was the best way to view the Croatian Coast. Jure the cruise manager tended to all our need a and ensured we had a great trip. What a beautiful place. Rodrigo and Maria in Spain made us feel like locals in Spain. Our next trip will be to Egypt, Jordan and Israel and we will definitely be using Sun Island Tours again.

Hi Marios, sounds like you had a fantastic time. If you do plan to do Egypt Jordan and Israel in the future, we do have a 21 day tour (From Pharaohs to Prophets/From Prophets to Pharaohs) which might suit you. Alternatively we have some shorter tours than do any combination of two of those three countries. Hope to see you there soon!
