    Your trip looks delightful! I just received this forward. Can you provide more information concerning cost, air arrangements….etc. Are you a travel agent? I have 2 college kids desiring to go to europe from May 23 to June 5th. Any suggestions or ideas. I would like to see them go on a tour. They would too but are contemplating just exploring. They are considering flying into Zurich and flying home from Rome.

    My mother just lost my Dad this past Jan. and has decided she wants to travel. She is struggling to find a companion. Would your trips be conducive to traveling alone or should she try harder to find another to accompany her? Looking forward to your reply! Marcia

      Hi Marcia, You can find all the information under “Paying for the Trip” the land cost is $2400 plus $300 single
      supplement if you would like your own room. You would make your own air arrangements but we recommend an agency
      Nittany Travel if you want to go that route- under “Getting to Slovenia.” For your college kids there are many youth
      hostels in Europe and many young people travelling. If they take the train to Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, they can hang
      out and meet other young people. It is a university town and many outdoor cafes about. English is spoken by all. Slovenes are
      open and friendly. I am sure they would have a great time. My son, Evon, went last year and didnt want to come home.

      As for you mom, how is her health? We are going to be walking and doing stairs. This trip is very conducive to travel alone as
      all participants love food and wine- what a better way to form friendships. She can come alone – she will be in warm company.
      Email me if you have further questions or want to speak more about the trip-

    • Hi Marcia,

      Our tour was a huge success this year and the itinerary was delightful so I am planning a tour for next May. I am not a travel agent but a Slovene American who loves good food and all that Slovenia has to offer. We are a friendly group and would welcome you Mom as long as she is in good health and fit enough to do some gentle hiking. Our group this year was composed of several couples and several singles – including one college student. All became good friends during the tour. I do have many suggestions on travel arrangements on my blog but you can always email me at for specific information. I will send you an email beginning of next year regarding information for our May 2014
