    Koper was one of the ports of call on our cruise and we were a private group of 8 persons who chose to take an independent tour because we preferred the small group size and because of the relative cost when compared to a ship’s tour. Communication with iStranka was

    Dear Superwoman888, Thank you for sharing your feedback, both constructive and positive. I apologize that we did not exceed the standard you have expected. Your comments have been discussed at length and we'll do our best to sort out all issues. Due to time limitations you couldn't visit all points of interest at Lake Bled because our first concern is to bring you back in time on your cruise ship. I was glad to read that our guide provided great service. Thank you once again for your comments. I hope I have been able to clarify a few things and I hope you'll give us another try. Kind Regards
