We had the trip of a lifetime thanks to Nejc. He took us through a lot of Slovenia on bikes or hiking mountains. Slovenia is beautiful and we had a very personal experience. We were treated like family everywhere we went. Our accommodations couldn’t have been any better. Nejc was the best tour guide. He had everything planned out perfectly and then when weather didn’t permit what was planned he came up with another wonderful plan. Our trip was full of wonderful people, places and surprises! Thank you Nejc!

The accommodations, hand picked by Nejc, were excellent. I would strongly recommend Hour Away Bike Tours to anyone who is traveling to Slovenia wanting to experience the country through the outdoors!!
