Since I have started studying tourism, I knew that I wanted to plan trips in our part of the world. After years of travelling, experiencing new activities and getting to know the people who were willing to share their knowledge and stories, it was only natural that I jumped at the first opportunity and decided to open a tour operator agency with my friend Tomaz, with whom we've known since our studying years. It took a great deal of work and exploring, but we are proud that today we can offer such a high-quality service for all our clients. Their encouraging words and words of gratitude are what drives us forward. Still, every single trip I plan, I plan with the same enthusiasm as at the start and I think this is worth a lot!
