“We had a great time with Jernej biking in Slovenia. He was prompt in biking us up at our hotel and then took us on a wonderful electric bike ride up a military road. The bikes were excellent quality. To top that off we stopped at a tourist farm and had some homemade soup an bread (lunch for 3 was only 8 Euro!). Then we had a tour of a cheese farm and a blacksmith shop, including throwing axes. A great trip and good quality for our money. We would recommend this for anyone wanting to get out of the city and experience the Slovenian countryside. Jernej is a great guide.”

“I received friendly communication in advance of my trip and was looked after 100 % from beginning to end. The e bikes are fantastic and can get you a lot further than an ordinary bike. I loved the ride through the forests – seeing lots of nature on the way. It was well worth the climb to the top of the hill from the hut – what an amazing view ! I would love to return to Slovenia and definitely do another trip with this Company. Thank you for a great adventure!”
“Jernej is great guide to spent a day with and as local knows all the great spots for best views and is ready to tailor the day trip for you. His background in professional sports gives confidence when peddling the steep mountain side. So if you and your group are more pro just tell. I trust he’ll find new challenges for you. For a day trip the e-bike is just awesome. As others said it lets you to enjoy the route to the top and back. And stay sharp in the speedy descent.
The pick-up service was so convenient for a traveler like I was. Also appreciated their call day before to plan the ride. I loved this local family business and their energy and beautiful english.”
