Handcrafted, Private Tours to Slovenia


You want to do things your way. We get it. MIR has been planning custom, private tours from scratch for over three decades, and we understand just how important flexibility is in travel.

Traveling privately on a custom private tour affords a great deal of flexibility – flexibility to immerse yourself in your own exclusive experience, to craft an itinerary around your interests, to go at your own pace, and to travel when it’s right for you.

How does it work? We’ll connect you with one of our Private Tour Designers so that you can share your vision and expectations with us.

We’ll ask you questions to better learn about your interests: Want to dive deep into the life of famous Slovene architect Joze Plecnik and visit some of his works? How about a visit to the Lipica Stud Farm to see how the famous Lipizzaner horses are trained?

We’ll share our extensive experience in the region – and our suggestions. And then we’ll dig into it and custom-craft a private tour itinerary for your review. Give us a call at 800-424-7289 to get started, or click here to be on your way.

Signature Experiences

Below are just a few examples of the signature experiences that MIR can arrange for you in Slovenia. Let them be a source of inspiration, then get in touch with one of our Private Tour Designers to craft an itinerary uniquely suited to your travel goals, budget, and style.

  • Enjoy a delightful one-mile hike along Vintgar Gorge, walking on a boardwalk that hugs a sheer canyon wall just above the river, passing rapids, pools, and a waterfall.
  • Visit a rural beekeeper for a close-up look at a centuries-old practice in Slovenia: the care and feeding of native Carniolan bee colonies, and enjoy a sweet tasting of honey products.
  • Head to Slovenia’s Savinjska Valley, famous for its hops-growing tradition, beers, and breweries, and fill your mug with a microbrew from Zelec’s original beer fountain.
  • Board a wooden boat for a relaxing ride on Ljubljanica River through Ljubljana’s Old Town, admiring baroque buildings, art nouveau architecture, and charming riverfront restaurants and cafés.

And if you don’t feel that a fully-customized trip is what you seek, we’ve got the perfect solution.
