Pre & post tours for Danube river cruises

We offer custom made pre & post tours for Danube river cruises connecting with the cities of Passau (Germany), Vienna (Austria) and Budapest (Hungary), around Slovenia and with two or more combinations of Slovenia, Croatia, Italy and Austria. Our most popular combinations are Slovenia with Croatia and Austria, Slovenia with Italy and Austria, Slovenia with Austria and Slovenia with Croatia.

For our Slovenia only tours, you can chose to overnight at multiple locations or to use one overnight location as a base, such as Ljubljana or Lake Bled, from where you can take a series of 1-day private tours to explore the rest of the country.

Our tours are ideally suited to couples or small groups of friends or family travelling together. Your transportation is by deluxe passenger van, offering exceptional travel comfort, with your own dedicated English speaking driver/guide.

You can enjoy all of the benefits of a private tour with us, for less than the price of “big bus” tours, but with all of the benefits of a private tour. Particularly where the fixed costs of your private transportation and guiding are shared between four or six persons.

Our rich local knowledge and many years of experience of operating tours in this region means that we can design the ideal private tour to match your requirements. As you would expect, our tours feature the most popular locations and visitor attractions in each of the countries we operate. However, we also enjoy taking our clients off the beaten path to discover those hidden gems which most visitors don’t get the opportunity to experience. Our flexibility is guaranteed since everything we do can be custom made to your precise needs and preferences.

What else is included in your private tour package?

1) Your hotel accommodation with breakfast:

We have developed our own “cherry picked” selection of preferred hotel partners, based on our personal experiences and client feedback, which we continuously monitor. Many of our first choice hotels are located away from the main tourist hot-spots, in rural locations or charming small towns or villages which are full of local character. Our most important criteria are hotel comfort, a quiet and relaxing environment, an attractive setting, a good choice of dining options inside and outside of the hotel and very good overall value for money. If you prefer, we can of course provide hotel options in the heart of the most popular visitor locations, but we do recommend that you consider something a little bit different which could enhance your overall experience of the country. At the time of making your enquiry we will check the current availability and room rates for our first choice hotel selections, and these details will be included with your custom made itinerary and quotation.

2) Your entrance fees at visitor attractions:

All of the entrance fees at the various visitor attractions or activities which are included in your itinerary are covered, unless these are stated as “optional”, in which case you will need to pay for these.

3) Local guides:

In addition to the general guidance and recommendations provided by Graeme, your personal driver and tour manager for your entire tour, you will enjoy the services of local city guides in various locations. Several of the guided tours provided by the visitor attractions listed above include local specialist guides.

4) Other services:

Orientation and guidance at each overnight location including local restaurant recommendations, assistance with your luggage between the vehicle and the hotel lobby, hotel check-in assistance, 24/7 emergency contact.
