Memorable day in Ljubljana
Our guide was Alenka Sršen and she was lovely. She was very professional and very prompt in responding to all emails before the trip . Upon meeting her we felt that she had thorough knowledge and was engaging and patient with us - we enjoyed her company and the trip thoroughly. A huge thanks to Akenka for making the day memorable.

Ljubljana Castle: Entrance Ticket
First to know: When you print your voucher btw it's not your ticket, simply go to the ticket booth for the funicular and exchange it there. I got the full ticket that gives you access to a roundtrip ride on the funicular and to the entirety of the castle and it's exhibits. I found in every turn their was something to see in this Castle and I found the audio guide + the placards by most of the displays gave tons of info about what Ljubljana Castle was in the past to the present. They've done an amazing job preserving this castle and it's beautiful inside and out and I recommend a visit inside.
