We had a stop at Koper on a long & enjoyable Oceania cruise from Barcelona to Venice. For the day in Koper, we were fortunate to book with Roundabout for a full day tour to Lake Bled, which was gorgeous, and to Ljubljana, which was amazing.
I did the Karst & Coast Mystery Tour and highly recommend traveling with Roundabout. Tour was very well organized and there is no way I could have seen all these things in one day on my own.View all reviews
