Can’t really speak highly enough of our local agent and trip leaders David and Jernij. They made last minute changes to collection and drop off plans to accommodate the group, they sorted out all our special requests, they were efficient, friendly and knowledgeable on all the activities, they were brilliant with the kids (giving them the freedom and independence they crave at this age and us parents a break) and were good fun to spend time with. They were also flexible with timings and arrangements so that we never felt rushed and everyone’s needs were accommodated. The lunch food that was arranged was particularly good - especially at the mountain hut (on the hike) and in Bled after the hire wires course. It is the people that make a trip like this memorable and we felt very lucky to have great fun fellow holidaymakers and such good trip guides. We all felt that we had been away longer than the week as we had packed so much in. The activities were pitched just right for the group - there was some challenge for every person on every activity. The adults enjoyed all the fun stuff as much as the kids. This area of Slovenia is also so beautiful, the scenery too is uplifting. We enjoyed all the activities - something to challenge everybody on every one of them. The area of Slovenia - just beautiful, the friendliness of the group. The feeling of freedom from parental control for the children. The holiday met and probably exceeded all expectations. Delighted!

David hit a perfect balance with our group. He had lots of stories and knew the history of the area inside out. He was great with both kids and adults and on the last day pushed us with great sensitivity well beyond our comfort zones with the rock climbing. I had expected this to be a climbing wall and therefore a bit tame. Instead we found ourselves facing a real cliff face alongside professionals and doing OK. Great sense of achievement.
Really pleased with our choice of holiday - the boys' stamina was tested with the cycling and we loved the adrenalin of the rafting and the beautiful surroundings. White water rafting was our favourite but we enjoyed everything and felt a huge sense of achievement with the high ropes and climbing.
