The castle houses a unique treasure - a reconstructed Gutenberg's wooden printing press on which the master printer will demonstrate old printing techniques using hand-made paper.

On the lake shore take 'pletna' handmade wooden traditional boat to the lake island. Rowers still use man power as in old days, making your experience more memorable. The tiny, tear-shaped island beckons from the shore and the ride with the 'pletna' boat is a real thrill. Climb atop 99 stairs and ring a bell for your wishes to come true.

Upon return from the island stop at the local patisserie and take a break; taste Bled’s famous cream cake – kremšnita. Since the last 60 years, as many as 12 million cream cakes have been sold. Try it yourself.

After a nice half day experience we will return back to Ljubljana.

Drop off will be at same location as pick up.

We were the only 4 people on this tour and had a very nice transport and great driver / guide. Lake Bled is worth seeing - 90 steps to the top from the dock - and the boat ride out is fun, beware the extra cost. The Castle does not offer much EXCEPT for excellent photo ops of Lake Bled and surrounding area. You could also easily drive here from Ljubljana, but we enjoyed the ride and the driver.

This is a great half day tour of Bled. Milan the tour guide was excellent and provided good suggestions of how to best use the time at our disposal. You will have ample time to take a stroll through town and take a pletna boat ride to the island in the lake.

The view from the castle over the lake and up to the mountains, a pletna boat ride to the tiny island, the taste of Cremeschnitte, don't miss one of them!

We took a tour with Milan at Ljubljana Today, which we booked through Viator. The half-day morning tour was enough time to drive around the lake, visit the island and still eat cream cake! We would loved to have stayed longer, but this was not possible on short time. Milan was a great driver and guide, and was SOOOO informative about the destination and Slovenia in general. Thank you!

Bled, was well over. We were picked up at our hotel and the guide in English the whole ride to Bled told us the history of Slovenia. At the lake we got 3hrs leave, possibly to sail the boat to the island. We have chosen to move around the lake, and this is definitely recommended. The local pastries was quite popular.
