We could not have been happier with our tour with Mateja! We only had one day in the Soča valley and she planned a tour to make sure we saw as much as possible. We had lunch in a charming town, went to a natural wine shop, and had the most magical day exploring. We learned so much from Mateja, and she went above and beyond by sharing photos and tips for the rest of our trip after the tour as well. We wish we had more time here and would recommend Discover Soča to anyone looking for the best experience with a local guide. THANK YOU!

Thank you Discover Soĉa Tours & Transfers for organising such an unforgettable experience! From the first email to the final goodbye, I felt well supported and looked after by Mateja and Miha.As a young female solo traveller, travelling in off season, it would have been impossible to see everything I wanted using public transport. Thankfully, Mateja and Miha were able to adapt to my budget and make my dreams a reality!My objective was to see the highlights of the Soĉa Valley, and we did just that (and more!). From visiting incredible natural gems to trying local Slovenian cuisine, together, we certainly achieved a lot across a 3 day transfer and tour itinerary.Having a knowledgeable and friendly guide like Mateja really made the whole experience even more amazing. You can tell she is very passionate about her country, its traditions and its people, so I learnt so much more than I could have than by doing it on my own (plus, it is always nice to have someone there to take pictures of you!).If you are wanting to experience the Soĉa Valley to its fullest potential, Discover Soĉa Tours & Transfers is the perfect fit for you. Save the stress of renting a car and instead, sit back and enjoy being looked after.
