"A person vacationing on their own would not be able to have the cultural experiences we all have had with CleverDever Adventures. It was so fun and organized."

-Marilyn McPhail


With regions like Istria, Drava, Mura, and Carniola, Slovenia already *sounds* like a fairy tale, but wait until you *experience* it.  


Influenced by its situation in the Mediterranean, Ancient Rome, and the Alps, Slovenia comprises a storied history that includes the Venetians, the Croats, the Hapsburgs, and Sleeping Beauty. Probably.

Reviews

This trip was beyond anything I could have imagined. My preconceived notions about Poland have been torn down. We got to see the real Poland, her beauty, just some of her hidden treasures (to see more would involve a much longer trip), her culture, and to meet her amazing people. The tour group are now friends with each other because we were able to share this country together, and we shared much laughter and really good food.

Poland was amazing. A truly curated experience. Beautiful cities, amazing food and made lifelong friends. Our tour guides were the best and showcased Poland well.
