More About Private Tours


[customcontact form=2]
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.

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.

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.,

Tubu T., India

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.

Kim and Scott Y., USA

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.

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. Kind regards.

Rick and Lynne B., Australia

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.

Dulce Eliza Scopel Piccinini, responsável pelo grupo de Chapecó-SC, Brasil.

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! Colleen and Bill Bath (and Inky and Jack too!).

Bill B., USA

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.

Laura D., United Kingdom

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.

Andy C., USA

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.

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.

Aileen & Vince, New Zealand

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 Dave.

Perla N., Uruguay

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! Buena Sera!

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.

Abraços, Vicente d. P. T., Brasil

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.

Eddy R., Belguim

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.

Sabyasachi T., India

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!

Tony F., Sweden

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. Greetings from Michael L., Denmark

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, Bine and Jasmina Best wishes.

Sally H., Canada

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.

Judy, Bruce, and Ian P., USA

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.

Pati K., USA

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.

Graciela A., Uruguay

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.

Denise H., Canada

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.

Antonio S., Espana

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.

Anthony B., UK

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.
