Cost of the tour $2198 covers all lodging, transfers between hotels, luggage porterage, entrance fees, all breakfasts, lunches and most dinners are included. Many food and wine tastings are included throughout the day and lots of food ops are available. The price is based on two persons per room. For those wishing a single room, a $300 room supplement is required.
Airfares are not included in the tour price and can be determined by visiting various travel sites. Fares usually start around $1,000. Also I give an extensive review under my page, “Traveling to Slovenia.” One of the most inexpensive ways to get to Slovenia is to fly to Venice and then travel with Go-Opti to Ljubljana. This past fall I flew nonstop with U.S. Air from Philadelphia to Venice and then used the Go- Opti service. It was fine and I didnt have to change planes. http://www.goopti.com/index.php?lang=en Language is not a problem. Their website is available in English and all drivers speak English well.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND PURCHASING TRAVEL INSURANCE. Please make sure it covers you, as well as your belongings and luggage on a boat, in a bus, and on the street throughout your journey. In the case of illness, there are fine physicians in Slovenia and a ultra modern tertiary health facility in Ljubljana.
