Which places do you intend to visit as soon as travelling is possible again?
The times we live in are unpredictable and current epidemic measures are shaping the lives of us all. ARGOS local guides are mostly self-employed in tourism industry, which recently changed in an unprecedented way. Our usual work disappeared, but we don't let that stop us from doing what we love and excel at. We respect all health guidelines and find innovative ways of sharing the stories of our country. You certainly agree that Slovenia is a lovely place to 'be stuck in' while the borders are closed. We have prepared a variety of interesting tours that help you understand the Slovenian way of life and thinking. If you encountered any unexplained questions about the locals, we are here to resolve them.
Finding a home away from home?
Life path brought you to Slovenia. You are probably charmed by the greenery, picturesque nature and a laid-back way of life we live here. There are probably also some confusing local habits you came across. And we can assure you, that there are plenty of things you haven't heard yet. Use the opportunity of tours in English, guided by locals. It is a great way to get to know Slovenian country and the people. We would like to make you feel welcome in our country and give you the feeling, that you can also feel at home here. We will answer any questions you might have about Slovenia, Slovenians and our (sometimes) quirky habits. Visit our tours across the country and experience its exceptional diversity.
We're here for you!
Association of Regional Tourist Guides of Slovenia ARGOS is an association of local tourist guides presenting the places we live in or are very connected with. We know the locations like the back of our hand and live our everyday life there. Besides, we are all qualified guides and have vast knowledge of elements, required for successful guiding, such as geography, history, psychology, history of art, and human skills.
Will you choose building blocks or a comfortable house?
Slovenia has information displays practicaly everywhere, why hiring a local guide instead of just reading them? Just like the constructors use building blocks to build a house, local guides can use local attractions to tell a story, that comes alive and stays anchored in your memory. You are aware of the difference between the building blocks and a comfortable house. You can witness the place coming to life, when it is presented well. Guiding is our profession, this is what we do for a living.

The greatest gift?
Is this the rigt gift? Modern world is mainly based on material things. But the biggest treasures are found inside a person. Taking some time for inner growth has greater long-term impact than hoarding things that slowly start to burden us. People grow when they are aware of the world surrounding them and when they understand it. Knowing your surroundings is a major step on the way towards understanding. And this is exactly what this present enables you to do. We rarely seize the opportunity for some self-growth. Now might be the right time for that. And growing in the company of your dear ones would make it even more precious. Buying a gift card for guided tour would also help small local businesses to face this challenging period.
