I now know why Oceania did not offer an excursion to Skocjan Caves. It was a highlight of our cruise but you must be in excellent shape due to the amount of walking and climbing up steps. I loved the cave. Wasn't sure if I would have the strength to make it out but thankfully at the end there was a funicular which helped since we came out a different end. No picture allowed but this added to the experience. My husband loved Lipica Stud Farm and we are thrilled that we booked this combination. Only complaint is that it was confusing meeting time at the ship for the excursion. Said one hour after ship arrives. Luckily we got off earlier and if we had to race to the cave for the 10 a.m. tour which we did first. Otherwise it would have been a 2 hour wait at the cave. Read Less

caves were amazing as we never saw anything like this before, lots of walking so we were a little sore the next day, but well worth it, would recommend this to everyone.

We loved our day with Roundabout Travel in Slovenia. We started with a tour of the caves. They were fascinating, and actually a little scary in places. This is not the spot for you if you're unable to climb steep slopes or are afraid of heights! I'm glad we toured the caves, but I'm not sure I'd go again! Please note at the caves you're at the mercy of the local authorities, and you will be placed in a fairly large group for the hike through the caves. Our group had about 30 people, and everything had to be said in two languages. We had lunch at a fabulous family owned restaurant, Muha in the tiny town of Lokev, then made the short drive to Lipica Stud Farm to see the famous Lippizaner stallions. The facility is pristine and very interesting, but the highlight of the visit was a performance of the riding school. The horses are magnificent and the show was very interesting. There didn't seem to be anything to do in Koper in the immediate area of the port. I recommend researching options for a tour if you visit Koper. Read Less

Very good tour, but unless you are under 30 yrs of age and in great physical shape, don't even attempt. Two and a half hours of continually walking on slippery surfaces, up and down with lots of very narrow steps. Wish I had done this when I was younger and more physically fit. Read Less

Too long a walk.
Sail Date: July 2015
Too long a walk. Too strenuous. Too boring. Short train ride. Very, very long walk/hike. How many rock formations can you look at? I would not recommend it.
