What people are saying about -Dean


Dean was very attentive to all. Easy to talk to and informative



Dean was simply wonderful ! Sure footed and quick to notice when we needed a break. Conversation was easy and he was very pleasant and professional. We had a fantastic time and would absolutely hike with Dean again. What an enjoyable experience!!!



We were looking for a hike suitable for 4 adults with reasonable experience in hiking.Dean not only crafted a 5 day activity for us but was also able to adjust for routes to fit our needs during the hike itself. Dean proved to be a great guide with both knowledge and an amazing attitude and was simply so much fun to be with, Dean also went 'the extra mile' for us taking some of us to special activities which we did not plan for. If you are looking for hiking in Slovenia and getting an experience of a life time - I would highly recommend Dean. 5 starts all the way (And if there 6 he would get them as well :) ) Dean, thank you so much !



Dean is a super experienced guide, he is very qualified to do all sorts of mountineering too if you are interested to try. I had a good time learning how to do snow shoeing and he is very patient in teaching me and assessing my abilities to suggest different routes which is suitable for my build and stamina. It was great and safe to have him as a guide because he knows the terrain well and that is good to know.



Dean was an excellent tour guide! He was patient and a great teacher, whilst also being very knowledgeable about safety. Highly recommend!
