Dear Rok, 4 countries, 15 cities, 7 hotels and 2 national parks in 11 days with 11 and 7 year olds boys in-tow. It was by far our most ambitious trip yet and it was amazing. Our tour guide, Gvozden was the pinnacle of professionalism. The tour was very inefficient. All the local guides were some of the best we have encountered in our worldly adventures. Rok, arranged the best rooms at the best hotels. It was interesting to experience bordering nations, so close to one another, yet so different in so many ways. We arrived in former Yugoslavia, having a basic understanding of the region, we left with a better comprehension of the place and with that, we are better people for it. Dubrovnik was the highlight of the tour for us and especially for the boys. It was a magical place for them. But each city had its unique appeal and history. The local indigenous Zinfandels were some of the worlds best. Thanks for arranging this fantastic trip. All the best!
Hi Rok We have been meaning to write as well to say thank you for an amazing trip. We had an amazing time with you and also thoroughly enjoyed your company. Your tour was so well thought out and organised and we loved every minute of all the places you took us. You were very perceptive of our family needs and thank you for accommodating us with our requests. We have certainly recommended you to all our friends We also hope to meet up with you again one day I still haven't gone through all the photos but when I do I will send a few to you. Kind regards
Hello Rok, Thank you again for all your help on our tour. We had a wonderful time and have lots of memories of our time with you in your part of the world. If any Australians want a first hand reference about your services we would be only too happy to talk to them. Best wishes,
Dear Rok, I'm sorry for the delay. I sent Helen an email when we arrived home but we immediately began renovation project at our house and I have been preoccupied. Our trip seems like a dream now. We had an amazing time. Helen was a wonderful guide for our family. She was especially kind and caring to our daughter. She was a very good driver as well. We felt very safe with her. She was also very persistent and able to get us into the icon museum! Her recommendation for St. Peter restaurant in Salzburg was perfect and our favorite meal of the trip. We enjoyed our itinerary very much. The salt mines were a special highlight. Our guides in each city were very good. Tatianna in Padua was especially knowledgable. Eric in Salzburg was also very personable and we enjoyed our time with him. ?Lara in Venice was helpful because she got us into St. Mark's quickly and easily. She did a good job simplifying things for our daughter. Michelangelo in Verona was pleasant but not as talkative as the other guides. With regards to the hotels, they both had great locations and breakfast. Hotel Mozart had lovely staff, especially at breakfast. The room was rather sparse and simple though. The bathroom was modern and very clean. There is no air conditioning at this hotel. This was not a problem for us because the weather was cool but I could see it being bothersome in warmer temperatures. Liassidi palace was lovely and the location in Greektown was especially nice for us. The courtyard was wonderful to have evening drinks. The staff was just average in terms of hospitality. Our room overlooked the lobby which I thought was strange. We appreciate your professionalism and would recommend your tour company. When we decide to visit Slovenia and Croatia we will call you and Helen. FYI: The Hollman Beletage in Vienna was a great hotel. Sincerely,
Dear Rok, Thank you for your kind message. We have all returned back to Singapore safely on Wednesday/Thursday and trying to get over the jetlag, etc. after a very nice and good holiday. It was indeed a pleasure to meet you. We are all pleased to have you to lead us on the land tour from Vienna to Venice and for your good knowledge and kind explanation on the places we were visiting. This allows us to better understand some of its histories, culture and sites we visited. You have been an excellent and wonderful guide, besides also Janko, being a very nice and careful driver which we greatly appreciates. Say hello and convey our regards to Janko for us. We do believe with your attention and standards, MOVIS will do well and achieve success in your business. We will definitely contact you if we do plan any trips in your part of the world and also refer and recommend to our friends, if they are traveling in your areas. From us all, we say thank you again and keep in touch. Kind regards,
Hi Rok, We are now home in Australia and have our wonderful memories of Slovenia, I wish to send some photos to Helena but the email she gave me she has not answered. Can you give me an email so I can forward them to her. Thanks again the trip was wonderful and everything went well, we loved your country and will try and convince our friends to also visit. thanks again for all your help
Good morning, I am sorry for not having answered before, but we were very busy with the cruise around the Croatian islands and the internet in the ship was not very reliable. First, I want to thank you in the name of all 4 of us for the good services that we received from your company and from Maja; the tour around Croatia and Slovenia was very interesting and spectacular; we enjoyed every minute of it. It was all very well organized . The hotel choices were also very good. I don’t have enough to say about the spectacular guide that Maja was. So very helpful and accommodating to all of our needs. She really went out of her way for us to love your country and feel great there.
Hello Rok, Looong time since I wrote last to you. I apologize that I never wrote back. I wanted to give you the feedback about our tour. First I would like to mention that everything on our tour last summer was super well organized! we really enjoyed all the countries you took us to. The good things: *We liked that Helena gave us some time to enjoy our family alone, and that she didn't have to be running around with us all day. *The hotel choices you made were in excellent locations! *The breakfasts in the hotels were delicious *Local tour guides that we loved were Petra(Cesky), Cristina(Vienna) and Maritzabel(Budapest) *The tour in Cesky Krumlov we liked that it was only 1hr and it was enough *The tour in Budapest was perfect time 6hrs *Tour guides always on time and always nice *We loved the tour guide from Budapest and it was part because she spoke native Spanish and therefore made things more understandable About Helena, She was amazing to us, she got along with our family very well, we all liked her so much. She was always trying to help in anyway. Always doing her work excellent so we enjoyed our trip. She is so efficient, Kind. We were impressed of all the knowledge that she had from all the places we went. She is such a good driver. Always with great attitude Her personal attention to the group was well appreciated. Thanks again for your help in our trip and definitely we will recommend your services to our friends and relatives and hopefully travel again with your company. Best regards
Hello Rok My apologies for not contacting you earlier. It was on my list of things to do as we wanted to tell you how much we really enjoyed our journey with Helena. She was a wonderful driver and we felt very safe with her and her professionalism as our guide was excellent. We would like to thank you immensely for organising the wine tasting for us in Maribor with Peter and his wonderful cellar at Hotel Mitra. It was one of the many highlights of our trip. All our accomodatio was good and staff at all of them were nice and very helpful. Slovinia is a beautiful beautiful country with friendly people and we will definitely tell people about it. Unfortunately many people in Australia dont seem to venture into this part of the beautiful world. We will try and promote it and also recommend that they organise a tour with you. We can't thank you enough for your organisation and prompt responses to my emails when we were considering our tour from Australia. It is quite a risk sometimes to book something and pay money to a company or persons we are not fermilliar with from the otherside of the world Thank you once again !!!!!! Please give our best to Helena and if either of you are in Australia we will always be available to host you or maybe organise a promotion for you. At present we are on our viking cruise and enjoying the magnificent weather and scenery. Today we are just about to arrive at the Iron Gates. Cheers From happy satisfied customers
Hi Rok, I wanted to thank you for organising such a well thought-out itinerary and my family has enjoyed themselves. Many thanks to Helena for taking such good care of us especially my elderly parents and making everything as smooth as possible. We particularly enjoyed the hotels which were located in the city centre as it allowed for greater flexibility in terms of the evening’s activities. Special note should go to our hotel in Split. It was a real treat to be able to stay in part of the old Palace. The Dalmatian coastline was absolutely stunning and I wish I was still there. It would be good to include in the itinerary that there was optional time to chill out/enjoy the sea. You may be surprised that some guests would enjoy swimming in the sea to cool down. Overall, it was a fantastic experience and my family and I are very happy to have used your services on our virgin Balkans journey/holiday. Can you please pass on my gratitude and thanks to Helena for her wonderful company/experience and service throughout the trip. We would definitely recommend your company and her services if we have family/friends looking to visit this region. Thanks
Dear Rok, My parent just got home a few days ago and told me that they had a wonderful time on your tour. Thank you for taking such good care of them and their friends and making their vacation so memorable! And thank you for being so professional in the arrangements, you made it easy for me too! Have a great weekend ahead and all the best! Yours truly,
Dear Rok, How are you? Apologies that I have taken so long to email you to thank you for organising our trip to Eastern/Central Europe. We had a wonderful time, the whole trip was fantastic. It was like being in a different world for us, as our country is so young and its history so recent in comparison to that of Europe. We saw both magnificent scenery and amazing architecture. We were constantly in awe of what man built so many centuries ago and without all the modern technology man has available now. Nik was a fantastic tour guide and he took great care of us. We very much appreciated the effort he put in, in order to make our trip an enjoyable and very successful one. We love his company and had great fun with him, - we are already talking about our next trip! Thank you also for the gifts you gave us, we were delighted with them. Two of our daughters have travelled to Slovenia recently and they thought the scenery was absolutely beautiful there. We would like to email Nik directly to say thank you to him, if you would be so kind as to let us know his email address. Thank you again for everything you have done in organising our tour. Enjoy your precious family. Kindest regards
Hello Rok, I have not forgotten to thank you or give you a critique ... it is coming. In the interim, Gvozden was a dream guide! He was kind, considerate with a twinkle in his eye and a great sense of humour. We appreciated every minute with him. Please thank him for us. I started the "Movis marketing" in the Frankfurt airport when we met some travellers from California returning from Spain and Portugal. I have told many others and will continue. I will follow up with specific trip comments. Thank you for all,
Estimada Dunja. Debo decir que la organización fue perfecta. Nuestro amigo Dean, cordial, respetoso, educado. Todo bien, tanto que participo de todos los ligeros almuerzos y copiosas cenas. Bien los hoteles, comodos y limpios. El mejor, a nuestro gusto el ultimo con un restaurante de primera. Tal vez hubiéramos necesitado un par de días mas ,pero no todo se puede en los viajes y yo con limitaciones de tiempo. Estoy a su disposición para cualquier pregunta adicional que les pueda ser útil. Cordialmente,
Llegamos hasta mañana, estando en Mexico les pongo un comentario positivo en ingles y español en su pagina web. El servicio fue de excelente calidad, fue un viaje y una experiencia inolvidable, los recomendaremos ampliamente en Mexico. Gracias por el licor de pera. Lamentablemente sufrió un accidente en un vuelo y por un maltrato de la aerolínea se rompió la botella, ahora tenemos una excusa mas para regresar a Eslovenia a comprar otra botella y conocer su país. Nuevamente gracias por todo. Saludos,
Hello Rok I hope you made it back to Ljubljana safely and the journey was smooth. We finally got back to Salt Lake last night at 7:30. I wanted to send you a note and say a very big thank you for an incredibly wonderful and memorable trip. The one week we spent in Slovenia and Croatia was one of the best trips we had and it is all thanks to you. Not only did you plan the whole thing with such care but you also fulfilled the wishes of the members in the group whether it was taking pictures of football teams or stopping to get ice-creams. Your commentaries of the places, the history, its people, and cultures was very informative and we learned a lot about Slovenia and Croatia in a very short time. As your mother put it, Slovenia is God's creation with the things He originally kept for himself. What an incredibly beautiful country!! We have not stopped talking about it with our relatives and friends. Croatia and the Dalmatian coast was incredible. I really cannot wait to bring our kids there and visit again. As we said, please visit us with your family in SLC and I hope we get the opportunity to reciprocate by taking you to some of the wonderful places around here. It is so hard to get back to work after a wonderful vacation. SLC today is mild thanks to some rain we are having. Coming back to the mountains reminded me of Slovenia (but your mountains are more beautiful). Again, thank you for your friendship and for taking such great care of us on this trip. I hope we get a chance to meet again! Warm Regards
Hi again, Well it is good that we did the gorge the day before or you would have been even 2 hours later! We have had such a wonderful time with you in your beautiful country and do seriously invite you and your girls to Vancouver and Whistler. So apparently I left you a souvenir of me - not to worry, I will survive just fine without my travel mug. (It is probably about the 20th one I have lost.) We bought some highlighter pens and were marking all the place you took us and remembering with joy. We miss you already as we walk about Bolzano not having a clue about the history. Big hugs to you.
Dear Rok I would like to thank you for the fantastic tour your organized for my Family, it will be an unforgettable vacation. You were very kind for receiving us in the hotel in Ljubljana and for the bottle of liquor and chocolates you gave us. I also want to mention that my Family and I are really thankful and happy with Branco, he is an excellent guide and more important, a great person. He was always kept giving us information about the places and cities we visited, always driving very carefully and something that we really appreciate is the way he took care of the whole family. If in the future you think in traveling to Mexico, please let me know to help you and have the opportunity to see you here in our country. Best regards,

Hi We are in Vienna getting ready for our return to Canada. The tour was fantastic. The driver and tour guide (both Branko's) were excellent. Branko the guide was excellent and was perfect for our group. Very knowledgeable and organized. We would recommend him highly and use him again. Overall everyone was very happy with the tour. It was exactly what we wanted. Thanks for everything.
Hi Rok I just want to say thank you for a great tour. The area we covered and sights we saw were amazing and breathtaking at times. I would also like you to let you know that our tour guide, Branko Struga was a fantastic guide. He was very generous with his time and very concerned for our safety at all times. Never did I feel concerned about our travels to any destination. The thing that we really appreciated was his knowledge of the areas we covered. He even corrected the local guides on occasion. He was absolutely a great addition to our tour and we appreciated him so much. We had a lot of laughs with him as his sense of humour matched ours. I can't say enough about how invaluable he was to us and how much he made our tour what it was - Great!!!!! I would also like to say what a great driver we had and his name was Branko also. The way he manoeuvred that bus in tight places was amazing. We felt very safe when he was driving. A big thank you and best wishes to all of you. Warmest Regards
Dear Rok, I am sure you have spoken with Branko, but I wanted to send you a little note of appreciation for all your efforts. The trip by far and away exceeded all my expectations, as well as my wife's, and especially my kids. As you are probably aware, the time we spend with our families, especially our kids, is priceless. I felt this adventure was the perfect combination of adventure, history, touring, and free time I found all the accommodations to be just about perfect and the breakfasts were fantastic. The itinerary was also perfect for my family with two 16 yo's. The rafting, zip lines, paragliding, and kayaking companies did a superb job. Even the bungee was perfect. Truly what made this trip however was Branko. He is a remarkable individual and brought a "certain energy" to the tour. My kids immediately found a bond with him and he had an ability to get them involved and keep them interested and enjoying. He was fantastic with both my son and daughter finding topics and activities they both loved. He seemed to have just about perfect timing for our city tours and we always felt we were hitting the places when the large tours were not present. My wife and I also felt that his knowledge and insights to the history and what has transpired in the countries brought an understanding we would never have learned or appreciated. He seemed to never stop working to insure we had everything we needed and that things were perfect. He really is a special person and provided my family a really special vacation. We have travelled many places in the world but never as seemlessly and with such a wonderful guide. My family will always have a very special place in our hearts for him and hope our paths will cross once again. I can't thank you enough for engaging him for our tour From our initial contact with your company you have responded quick and clearly and made the arrangements quite easy for me to get accommplished. I felt the service you provided was far and above anything I expected in all regards. If there is anything I can ever do or any reference I can provide please let me know. Thank you again for everything. I will send some pictures once things are organized.
Hi Rok, Wanted to let you know that we had a great time. Helena was patient, accommodating and informative. We took over a thousand photos! Thanks for the chocolates, the gift for Lilian and for helping us out with restaurant bookings. The food was good and no bad meals. Plenty of great ones. We will do some write ups at trip advisor. Will definitely use you guys again when we do Croatia and Balkans - maybe in 2 years.
Dear Rok, Just wanted to let you know how very much we enjoyed our 5 days in Slovenia. (We have been tied up with the Swiss hiking trip and getting to London). Thank you so much for organizing it all. The very best aspect of it was to have Jasmina and Bine as our guides (though I’m sure you would have been wonderful too). Their excellent English, huge knowledge of history (including, in Jasmina’s case, the archeological history of humankind, something we are very interested in), their knowledge of everything we saw as well as social commentary about it, their good driving, caring concern at all times made it worth every penny and minute. In addition, they shared some of their personal lives with us, which has made us feel that we are friends for life. They were and are just wonderful. In terms of where we went, we truly appreciated the human touch in looking at farms, including Bine’s success in finding a very kind beekeeper lady. We felt that we had rather a deep look at Slovenia in connecting the two world wars with the gorgeous landscape, pretty cities of Ljubljana and Piran and many villages. Learning about what Slovenia has suffered in the wars was important for us, and definitely brought home when we hiked up the road into the mountains that the Russian prisoners built. Please tell Jasmina and Bine that I will write as soon as I can. We miss them! We could not have had a better introduction to Slovenia with anyone. Thank you again for all your organization and communication. You can be assured that we will be telling everybody about you.
Hi Rok, I’m not sure if my dad emailed you, but I also wanted to email you to thank you for a wonderful trip around the Adriatic. It was extremely helpful and enjoyable to have you around with us, and of course the driving / speaking / information sharing were all invaluable. I will definitely keep you in mind if I am looking for a similar trip in the future, whether with my family or just me and Emily. I was also wondering if you’d like any photos to use in your business proposals for other clients. I can try to provide one good photo from each city that I think sums up the city well, and you can use them however you feel fits. If you’re interested, let me know and I’ll start sending. If you’re curious about my totals, I have about 3900 photos total, and I am exhausted! Thanks again, I had so much fun ..
Slovenia and Croatia were beautiful and exciting places to visit, rich in historic and scenic beauty. The arrangements by your company were perfect. Your guide Nikola was superb! He was most enjoyable and made the trip special. He is a true jewel of Croatia. Any serious visitor to Slovenia and Croatia definitely does need a tourist service similar to your own providing expert guides who conduct the tours in private vehicles.
Buenos días Dunja: A sido todo perfecto: Horarios … 10 Atención . .. 10 Visitas …… 10 Transportes .. 10 Guía ………… 10 Conductor/es. 10 Belgrado nos ha gustado, si que nos ha parecido un poco caótica la circulación en sus calles. Sobre todo nos ha parecido muy bonita la ciudad de NOVI SAD, Las comidas en todos los lugares han sido muy buenas y las vistas tambien Cuando tenga un hueco te amplio un poco mas la información Saludos y gracias por todo.
Dear Rok, we have arrived safely back in Canada and I just wanted to write to thank you very much for the service your company provided while we were in Slovenia. Our guide, Dunja was wonderful. She was polite, informative and helpful in all ways. Her tour of Ljubljana was very detailed and we enjoyed it very much. We would recommend her services to anyone we know who is travelling to Slovenia. Thank you again..
Dear Rok: Here we are, since May 27th, at home in this autunnal season, frozen! We are suffering a very cold weather, coming from the South Pole. Temperatura are as low as 3 or 4º (centigrades), but it seems to be cooler by the wind. Everybody enjoyed the souvenirs!!! They can believe they come from so far away. All things from Mostar, Medjugorje and Split were given with a note explainning part of the history and characteristics of the population. It was very enjoyable to write about Kairos and explaind his habilities to our friends. Excuse our wonderful english but you had probed to understand us and what we want to mean. Sincereley yours, Aunts Ma. Rosa y Graciela PD: Everybody (family and friends) now says here “SUN OF VECES” and “DO NOT BREAK THE IAIAS” jja jaaa ..
We thought our tour was fantastic. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable, thoughtful, nice, and fun. We loved being able to create our own tour with a small group of people, we were 8. Everyone had an opportunity to ask lots of questions, and so were able to learn so much more. The town of Mostar was especially delightful. We loved our restaurant experience with lots and lots of appetizers, tastes, and flavors, and what a bargain it was. We had a fantastic lunch. We took lots of photos, and had a marvelous time interacting. The other great thing about a private tour, was the opportunity to visit the small villages in Slovenia in the area around lake Bohinj. Bus tours, do not get to tour this area.
Rok: Thank you – and especially Jasmina- for a FABULOUS day. Jasmina met us as arranged with a smile on her face and a lot of information! It only got better as the day flew by. The caves were fabulous. Being so thougtful, Jasmina remembered a jacket for me. Her preview of what we were to see was very helpful. We proceeded to the castle. Jasmina had so much interesting information for us. We had a wondrful lunch on the seaside in Piran with, or course great information and commentary. We finished up in Portoroz and back to Koper. We so enjoyed our day with Jasmina. She is so full of terrific information and provided terrific insight into not only the sitesbut culture, history, politics. We could not have asked for more. Good luck. Think about ways to optimize your website. You are truly a gem and should not be the “best kept secret” in Slovenia. Keep an eye on Trip advisor. I hope to leave you a great recommendation. Thanks so much again.
Hello Rok! I was surprised to hear, that none of my students had written you yet! They blame me, for having kept them too busy! I am sure you and Miha will hear from them, including the pictures. We have evaluated the trip, and everybody was very happy with how the trip went on. And again, everyone agreed that you were the difference between diaster and succes!!! I very much enjoyed your company on the trip. I hope I get another chance to visit your country, and maybe we will meet? Who knows. Once again, thank you very much for a nice trip, say helle to Miha if you see him.
Dear Rok, I would like to thank you very much for your professional guide for my trip to Bled! I hope to use your service again in the future when I come back Slovenia again!
Hi Rok, We have arrived safely in Kolkata. No problems at all. Just the heat and the humidity . No time as yet to check the photos as office was waiting. I am sure you must be taking it easy. Best wishes from us all and once again thanks for everything, we had a wonderfull time.
Dear mister puppis our holiday is almost ended and we want to thank you for the well balanced holiday program. you did a good job and in the short 14 days we have been able to taste some of the culture of a new and future European country. We had a good time and have met nice and friendly people in both country’s. when we are back in belgium i will mail you a picture of my family in croatia thanks again and be assured that I will recommend you to my friends and family..
Dear Friends, In copy to all my usual supliers for trips (Bravo Turismo, Ecocaminhantes, Consultravel, Venturas e Aventuras), I would like to introduce Rok Puppis (www.private-tours.info), also copied. Rok owns a tourism company in Slovenia specialized in TAILOR MADE tours troughtout all balcans area. Friends in common have introduced us and I had VERY GREAT experience with his HIGH QUALITY services, enough to repeat tour in his area several times more. I do believe you all, copied, may bring great sinergy with each other, reason why I do this presentation. THERE IS LOT to see, do and experience in Slovenia and around.
Rok, Enza was fabulous and I apologize for the delay in my recognition of how our tour went while in Rome. Do you have her contact information or shall I send a thank you note to you to be sent to her? I would like to send a note of thanks and appreciation. We so enjoyed Rome! It was a tad crowded on our 2nd day but we made the most of it. Thank you very much!
Querida Dunja No tengo palabras para felicitrte y agradecerte lo excelente que ha sido el recorrido, cuando llegaron a Sicilia, me llamaron para agradecerme lo bien que lo habian pasado, todo perfecto, y ni hablar de las atenciones de Rok su educacion, amabilidad han quedado gratisimamente reconidas hacia todo lo disfrutando y yo hacia ti Por supuesto estaremos en contacto, te mando muchos carinos..
Rok, Sorry it took so long to get in touch with you. After the trip we discussed our guides You and Dan from Romania were tied for the best,we really enjoyed our time in your country with you. You are what made the visit great. In a year or so would like to go back to see the other parts we didn’t have time for and would like to do it with you. Could you send what areas you cover and recommend so we could do a little research. You are a great guide,and should do well with your busniess This is not an idle saying,we have traveled a lot and your time,information,caring and excitement made this part of the trip stand out. Over the winter we will talk over your suggestions. We would like to combind this trip with Coatia and the coast,probably a 30 day. Hopfully all this praise will not go to your head , and you’ll raise the price next trip. The holidays are coming ,enjoy OH,thanksgiving is the day you eat turkey and Christmas is the day you get presents just in case you do not celebrate these over there. Ha Ha You are a quick learn and caught on to joking real fast. Stay well and busy ..
Hello Rok We have just arrived back and yes we did have a good time in Croatia. Nicola looked after us well. We also enjoyed Hvar, Korcula and Dubrovnik before going on to Sarajevo and then 24 days in Turkey. The other three couples went off on separate adventures after Korcula and they are all home now too. We were all delighted with the tour with you and if you ever need anyone to recommend your expertise and personality, we’d be very happy to do this. You have a gift for what you do. Thank you once again. Kindest regards..
Disculpe por haber demorado tanto tiempo la respuesta pero se que Benjamin lo hizo en nombre de todos. Nuestra experiencia por Eslovenia y Croacia fue estupenda. Los servicios que Ustedes prestaron fueron excelentes, hotelería ajustados a lo convenido pero fundamentalmente la actuación de Dean. Excelente conductor y guía. Tambien destacamos en forma superlativa los guías de Zadar y Zagreb. A Rok y a ti les auguramos buen exito por la profesionalidad que han demostrado tener. Con saludo afectuoso para Rok y Dean te hacemos llegar un fuerte abrazo y una vez más agradecerle la planificación que hicieron para disfrutar nuestro viaje.
Hi Rok, Hvala! I enjoyed Slovenia and still quite relieved that the weather was very good. The day I left today was foggy but I got to see the Slovenian Alps mountains from the plane!! But now that I have visited all of the former Yugoslavia…its time to slowly re-visit all of them. Its time for me to promote Slovenia in the US.
Dear Rok We had a fantastic time and thank you for arranging the summer weather !! Branko of course was fabulous and made sure we were interested for every part of our journeys. Never once was the travelling a chore. We were very pleased with the location of all hotels so thank you for listening to our wishes. I believe the Hotel in Split was a new choice for you so would just like to say it was great. Huge room with lounge, balcony and perfectly placed for beach and old town. Thank you so much best wishes..
Hello Rok! We want you to know how much we enjoyed Slovenia…our time there being so good because you were a wonderful host and guide. Visitors to Slovenia are lucky to have you…and Slovenia is lucky to have you to represent your country, its people and its culture! If you are ever in need of reference, please use us. Should any friends of us choose to travel to Slovenia, we certainly will refer them to you. Until we meet again….best regards!
Tendo em vista sua solicitação para avaliação da nossa viagem que ocorreu em setembro deste ano, quero agradecer a atenção que você e o Rock dispensaram nestes 18 dias ao nosso grupo de 36 pessoas, com nosso roteiro personalizado para a Ex. Yoguslávia e Albânia. A beleza natural desta região é indescritível. Mesmo por fotos não se consegue transmitir o que é a região. O trabalho desenvolvido pela Private Tours foi excelente, porquanto sempre esteve atenta as necessidades do grupo, e para que fosse cumprida a programação estabelecida, resultando daí o melhor atendimento possível. Queremos salientar o trabalho do Guia acompanhante Goran, que esteve sempre disponível para responder a todos os questionamentos, independente do momento em que era formulado e com a sua experiência nesta região transmitiu segurança a todos, e com sua camaradagem, tornou-o parte da nossa “família”. Em suas exposições, fazia com objetividade e demonstrava um grande conhecimento da história da região. Quanto à escolha dos guias locais, foi muito boa pela excelência do trabalho efetuado. Quanto aos hotéis, tanto na qualidade como na localização, foram ótimos. Por unanimidade, o grupo indica a Private Tours como operadora de viagem, para a região visitada. Já estou divulgando seu trabalho para pessoas que querem viajar para esta região.
Dear Rok Rick and I would like to thank you for your professional service in organising our trip through Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Slovenia. It takes a leap of faith to transfer money across the world to someone you have had no dealings with, but our expectations were met it full. The itinerary you provided was excellent, the quality of accommodation met expectations, and the car and driver provided worked out very well. Branko is an excellent and safe driver, and his energy and desire to ensure we had a wonderful trip were a bonus. The hospitality you showed us in Ljubljana was unexpected and most appreciated. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to our friends.
Dear Rok: today we finished our tour, really satisfied for the attention that we received specilly from Peter, an excellent guide.Tomorrow we return home.Thanks for everything.
Olá Rok Sentimos também sua falta e dos momentos felizes e engraçados que tivemos nessa bela viagem. Nunca é demais agradecer o carinho que você teve conosco, você é gentleman. Não se preocupe com seu “portunhol” ele nos foi muito útil, percebemos também que não temos a necessidade da língua para reconhecer um amigo. Meu medico pediu seu contato para formar um grupo e nos fornecemos. No mais estamos bem e de volta ao trabalho com as festas, muito trabalho. Esperando que todos os seus estejam bem ai na Eslovênia, um forte abraço de seus amigos. PS Estamos aguardando você aqui do Rio de Janeiro, em breve estaremos mandando algumas fotos para você.
rok, now that a few days have passed, i can still definitively say that this was one of the grandest holidays we have ever experienced….we owe you and nik a debt of gratitude for allowing us to experience your country in all its splendor in such a compact time…we really felt as if we were away for 3 weeks…we will both have memories that will stay with us for a lifetime,and after all, isn’t that what it’s all about….with warmest regards, your friends.
Dear Rok, Just back home after a tiring 24 hour journey from London via Vienna and Delhi. London was much cooler than the continent but was quiet sunny for the first two days. How are things with you? Hope you got some rest. It had been real hectic this time with all the late night photography stints. Mother and Uncle were all praise for you the last few days. We are yet to get through the photos and Lopa am sure would take some time. Take care and lots of good wishes from a steaming hot Kolkata. Mail you again soon.
Dear Rok, So sorry I meant to write to you days ago but things kept coming up. Just wanted to let you know how impressed we were w/ the tour. Everything went absolutely perfect. Although a bit short ( would have loved to spend more time in Slovenia) but we enjoyed every minute of it ! . We thank you & Bine so much for having done such a great job for us. We will definitely recommend everyone interested in going that it has got to be “you”. Kind regards,
Rok, querido amigo Rok, Como prometi, vou escrever em portugues. Primeiramente gostaria de agradecer por toda a gentileza com que nos recebeu, sobretudo nos levando para conhecer seus pais. Os caminhos percorridos foram lindos. Ao começar a ver as fotos, inicio uma nova viagem e chego à conclusão de que tudo , tudo foi maravilhoso. Não foi só um trabalho e contratantes. Em verdade, nos tornamos uma familia. E, eu sei como isso é dificil de acontecer. Voce foi um amigão. Tudo na medida certa. Eu não modificaria nada. Faria tudo novamente. Esta é boa sensação que trouxemos para casa. Momentos felizes. Espero que voce tenha muito sucesso com sua empresa pois voce merece. Istanbul é um capítulo separado. Ainda estou com os sons de Istanbul na cabeça. É uma cidade inebriante. Quando voces virao ao Brasil? Faço questão de recebe-los. Vou mandar algumas fotos da viagem nos proximos e.mails. Beijos e saudades Eliane Um grande abraço.
My lovely wife, Tammy and I went on an Adriatic cruise and we had the pleasure of stopping in the beautiful country of Slovenia. Our friend, Glenn found a guide online after searching for one extensively. He found Rok Puppis (www.private-tours.info) and booked a private tour. Rok was incredible and such a great guide. His English is perfect and we all felt so safe with him. He met us in the port city of Koper where our cruise ship docked and we went on such a fun journey through Slovenia in his really nice van, which was roomy and comfortable. There were five of us, though the van could seat more. I found out that Rok does tours to Croatia and beyond, and I would not hesitate to go with him on an extended tour. His fee is very reasonable and he speaks many languages and is so knowledgeable about Slovenia and Europe in general. We just had a one day tour, though I wish it was longer. First, we went to the Predjama castle, which was awesome, then onto the capital city of Ljubljana, which was gorgeous, then to the incredible Skocjanske caves. I loved it all. Rok was such a pleasure to meet, and he’s an excellent driver. I also really enjoyed hearing the history of Slovenia, information about the locations we visited, and since I’m a writer, all the myths and local legends. If you’re looking for a guide for Slovenia, Croatia, or beyond, look no further than Rok Puppis of Private-Tours in Slovenia, Croatia and Beyond.
Mi querida Dunja, quiero agradecerte infinitamente a mi nombre y el de mi familia, las atenciones que tuvieron con nosotros en toda nuestra estancia!! Gracias por los halagos de mi nene, estuvo super bien portado en todo el viaje, y eso para nosotros fue una bendición!! También queremos agradecerte los tres detalles de cumpleaños, que detallazo! y la cena en tu ciudad super increible! rico todo, el lugar nos encantó!! además, que lindos los detalles que nos dieron, así como los hoteles 5 estrellas que fue un plus (el de Dubronik uffffff precioso!!!!, en fin, todo encantador! En cuanto a lo del viaje, nos pareció muy profesional Dean, todo el tiempo muy amable y además conocedor de muchas cosas, en verdad que fue un placer viajar con él. De los guías, todos extraordinarios, excepto tres, Ana de Dubronik (poco conocedora y muy grosera e intolerante), Gabriela de Vienna (poco conocedora, inculta, y corriente en su manera de comportarse), y una guia que ni se como se llama de Kotor (fue amable pero nos dio una explicación demasiado pobre, y por lo visto tenia prisa, pues la encontramos con otras personas en Perast). Los hoteles, el Hotel Astoria de Budva no nos gustó porque esta muy oscuro y un poco desordenado, pero la ubicación eso si, es extraordinaria. Nos encantó el hotel Villa Sofija, precioso!!! y en general todos lindos, bien ubicados y trato muy amable. Los lugares todos tienen algo encantador, aunque creo que podríamos omitir para futuros pasajeros Kosovo, pues no es un lugar de mucho interés, quizas también Belgrado, aunque claro la comida es fantástica y el sitio donde cenamos, no tiene precio, nos encantó!! además de la fortaleza, pero en sí la ciudad como que quizas no gustará mucho a futuros visitantes. Siento que para no cansar a futuros prospectos, pudieramos preparar algo en Croacia, Eslovenia y Bosnia (aunque me fascinó el Lago de Ohrid, pero para no cansar a la gente y hacer muchos kms). Nosotros a pesar de que fueron muchos kms, lo aguantamos perfecto!! pero habrá gente que quizas no aguante mucho, además, la mayoria de la gente prefiere viajar a ciudades más fascinantes como la tuya por ejemplo, y para los mexicanos, las playas de Croacia, quizas no sean fantásticas pues ya sabes, tenemos playas con arena y clima templado, pero el paisaje es excelente, sería cuestión de analizar que podemos trabajar y preparar para el gusto de la mayoria de la gente, sale? Pues fue un placer enorme este viaje, el conocerte personalmente y llevarnos gratos recuerdos de los Balcanes y de toda su gente. Por supuesto que se que nos veremos pronto, ojalá vengan pronto a México que será un placer enorme recibirlos y atenderlos como se merecen!! Saludos a Rok y nuestro agradecimiento para el, y gracias por todo!! Un fuerte abrazo de parte de todos, besitos de mi nene y hasta pronto!!
Hola Dunja y Rok, ¿Te acuerdas de nosotros? somos el grupo de españoles que hizo un pequeño circuito con vosotros en mayo. De nuevo me pongo en contacto contigo esta vez sólo para informarte que mirando la web de TripAdvisor he visto que hay un foro de paquete de viajes y me he decidido a poner un mensaje hablando de vuestro gran servicio. Te dejo el link para que puedas entrar directamente, si hay alguna cosa que os parece que se tiene que corregir me lo comentas, el primer link es el de la página del foro y el segundo link va directamente a la opinión que he publicado. http://www.tripadvisor.es/ShowForum-g1-i11062-Package_Holidays.html. Espero que esta pequeña aportación os ayude en vuestro trabajo.
Dear Rok, many thanks for your letter and photos, we do appreciate them and they will bring back all our wonderful memories of the holiday we spent with you. We can't praise enough the effort you put into all the planning and your expertise in all we managed to see and do. We thoroughly enjoyed your company, and like you said , perhaps we will meet in the future!! Our best wishes to you and your enterprise.
Thank you Rok, Tour of Central Europe was very well organized and we enjoyed ourselves. Branko did a fantastic job and took good care of us. Please let him know.
Hello Rok, My apologies for not contacting you earlier. It was on my list of things to do as we wanted to tell you how much we really enjoyed our journey with Helena. She was a wonderful driver and we felt very safe with her and her professionalism as our guide was excellent. We would like to thank you immensely for organising the wine tasting for us in Maribor with Peter and his wonderful cellar at Hotel Mitra. It was one of the many highlights of our trip. All our accomodatio was good and staff at all of them were nice and very helpful. Slovinia is a beautiful beautiful country with friendly people and we will definitely tell people about it. Unfortunately many people in Australia dont seem to venture into this part of the beautiful world. We will try and promote it and also recommend that they organise a tour with you. We can't thank you enough for your organisation and prompt responses to my emails when we were considering our tour from Australia. It is quite a risk sometimes to book something and pay money to a company or persons we are not fermilliar with from the otherside of the world. Thank you once again !!!!!! Please give our best to Helena and if either of you are in Australia we will always be available to host you or maybe organise a promotion for you. At present we are on our viking cruise and enjoying the magnificent weather and scenery. Today we are just about to arrive at the Iron Gates. Cheers From happy satisfied customers.
Senores Rock y Dunja, Aun estamos en Espana y les queria escribir semana proxima desde Colombia, para decirles que estamos muy satisfechos con todo el viaje que ustedes nos han organizado por Croacia, Bosnia Herzegobina y Montenegro. Muy bien los hoteles y sus habitaciones con buena vista, los guias locales, el coche mercedes y muy en especial Dean, quien nos parecio un magnifico guia, chofer y gran persona en sentido profesional, personal y familiar. De verdad que muchas gracias por los muy buenos servicios prestados por su agencia y esperamos recomendarlos ampliamente a nuestros amigos que viajen por esas lindas ciudades y paises.
Hi Rok, We have been meaning to write as well to say thank you for an amazing trip. We had an amazing time with you and also thoroughly enjoyed your company. Your tour was so well thought out and organised and we loved every minute of all the places you took us. You were very perceptive of our family needs and thank you for accommodating us with our requests. We have certainly recommended you to all our friends. We also hope to meet up with you again one day. I still haven't gone through all the photos but when I do I will send a few to you. Kind regards,
Dear Rok, We are home safely. The plane had a 'technical problem' and was 1.5 hours late leaving Frankfurt so we had to catch an hour later flight in Vancouver. I slept well last night, Bob not too badly so we are none the worse for wear. I hope you had an uneventful trip all that way back to Ljubljana. Quite a marathon! Thank you so much for looking after us so well. We thoroughly enjoyed our initiation into the Balkans and having you as our guide. It felt like it was an itinerary that was uniquely geared to Bob & Sally...which it was! How many other guides would combine driving around in the back of beyond, climbing up odd bits of territory, stopping for hard to take photographs, being able to recount the local history for the last 600 years, exchanging personal stories and interests with their clients, telling the local jokes, choosing appropriate venues to see and places to stay, teaching some language, and remaining cheerful in the face of local authorities? It was a delight to be with you. I will get to our photos soon. They are always a key part of a trip, aren't they. Too bad you tried to hide our camera in your bag. I would say that our time with you was a 'tonic'. You looked after us so well and were such good company. Many thanks for your gentle and intelligent approach. We look forward to seeing you in Calgary before toolong. Warm wishes and many thanks again.
Dear Rok, Thank you so much for making our time in Ljubljana the best experience! When we booked our personalized tour we didn't realize how comprehensive and specialized it would be, all three of us had the best day and now have the most fond memories of Ljubljana because of you. Having the flexibility to go and see the areas that interested us was perfect and we feel that we were able to see everything we wanted to while being able to ask any random questions along the way. We loved all of the small and interesting details you were able to provide us about life in Ljubljana and would not have been able to experience many of the delicious treats, food and drinks available if you were not with us and been able to provide your valuable insight. We really appreciate all your time and effort, you truly made Ljubljana one of our favorite places we visited! We would all recommend your private tours to anyone who is going to Ljubljana and if we ever come back and see one of the other places you provide private tours to we would not hesitate to book with you again. Once again, thank you so much :) Warm Regards..
Estimados Helena y RoK. Muchas gracias por todas sus atenciones y sus servicios. Para nosotros fue una magnifica experiencia que con gusto la volveremos a repetir solicitando algun otro tour que lo organicen ustedes. No hay ninguna queja sobre todo lo que nos organizaron, Dean fue muy amable con nosotros y siempre dispuesto a ayudarnos. Tal vez los hoteles el que llegamos eb Sarajevo fue un poco falto de 5 estrellas pero sabemos que por su ubicacion era extraordinario. El hotel de Belgrado una magnifica experiencia. Tienen un muy buen negocio en las manos, creo que el turismo para esa zona se ira incrementando poco a poco. Con un poco de promocion podran tener muchos cliente y amigos. de nuestra parte cualquier persona que nos pregunta le indicamos la experiencia que tuvimos y la magnifica agencia de viajes que tenemos. Muchas gracias amigos y no duden en solicitarnos cualquier informacion sobre nuestro Mexico, que con gusto le ayudaremos. De nuevo muchas gracias por todos sus servicios.
To Rok Puppis, Our family wanted you to know we enjoyed our tour very much. Elaine, our guide, was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable and thoughtful. The entire area is very beautiful and I hope we are able to visit again. Thank you.
Awww Rok! We are so happy to hear from you. Tom and Sonia should be back in Canada by now. Betty, Don, Ken and I leave for Verona tomorrow morning (water taxi from hotel to train station). You'd be proud of us as we took your recommendation to heart and made our goal to "learn" Venice by wandering "everywhere" and getting totally lost. It was great. We most enjoyed today as we walked the shoreline for quite some distance out of the bazillion of Chinese tour groups and cruise ship people. Your name came to our lips many times since you departed ... no we weren't swearing. ;-) hahaha I will be honest when I tell you I felt like a very dear friend left us when you departed us. Wish you the very best in your life and may it be full of blessings! Remember if you want a holiday in Canada, you have three families that would welcome you and your significant other with open arms!
Hi Rok, Sorry for being so late in getting a response to you but I picked up a terrible head cold the last day in Verona which made the trip home a real pain. Have being slow at getting back at things here but I am now at work with only the memories of the trip to get me through the day ha. Anyway I wanted to share that I know that I speak for the group when I say every aspect of the trip was above, way above, our expectations. That is not to say we had low expectations on the contrary we were looking for a 1st class experience and you delievered far above that. We were in the hands of a professional and it showed up in your attention to detail, you looking out for each of us and our individual wishes, your flexibility and your ability to meld into the group so smoothly. You suffered with our stupid senses of humour and even laughed at our crap jokes and you made us feel you were one of us and that was very comfortable. Stay doing what you are doing. I have told many people here in the office where I work as a consultant to 8 different companies that this was the trip of a lifetime. Many want to take my 1000 pictures home to review and most are so impressed with the experience you gave us. So once again thanks for doing all you did for us. If you ever want me to write or talk to potential clients feel very free to ask and they will get a very positive reflection of the experience. The leaves are turning golden here and the temp is dropping to 1c at night and I will have to put my boat away this weekend after one more trip to my remote log cabin. I will attach a photo of the cabin so you can see we have it pretty good at this end of the world also. Good luck me Friend, hope we meet again,
Dober dan, Right back at you. Sonia and I are sitting in the Toronto airport wondering where we might find a good goulash and ice cream. Rok.......thanks for a fantastic 2 weeks. You are the greatest! We will be sure to recommend you to anyone contemplating a trip near your beautiful part of the world. Cheers.
Dear Rok, We had an exceptional Ancestor Heritage Tour by your guide Helena. Helena went way above what we expected.She was extremity knowledgeable about my ancestors heritage and lifestyle they lived. She also went above and beyond in the researching my family. Helena located my Grandfathers and my Grandmothers home and also I met cousins for the first time. It was a very emotional experience. Even knowing where Grandparents came from I never would have been able to find Homes and relatives without Helena's knowledge, experience, and guidance. The greatest asset Helena provides is her passion for work, This is not just a job for her,, it is a passion and it shows! She truly cares about our discovering our Family heritage, as well as educating her Slovenian Heritage, The other greatest asset of Helena is her scheduling , We had a full day filled with activities but at a relaxed paced that allowed us to totally enjoy our time . The Wine tasting at Metlica was, again , way above our expectations. We had scheduled only the one day tour,, but by the end of that day, it was very clear to us , we had to hire Helena the next day for a trip to Bled ,, and again,, this tour also went way above our expectations. We are planning on coming back in a few years and we will be wanting (demanding!) Helena to be our guide again! Thank You and Helena so much for making our time in Slovenia a truly pleasant experience of a lifetime!
