A little about Ljubljana
Ljubljana enjoys a central postion which makes it the ideal base for exploring the rest of Slovenia. It is a crossroads culturally due to its location, on one hand you can see the Central European influence from Austria and Slavic countries in the city's architecture and language. On the other hand there is a strong Mediterranean and Balkan influence which is brought out in their laid back approach and the city's cafe culture. People are often surprised how westernized and advanced Slovenia is putting it more in a class with its Austrian neighbors than its Eastern European counterparts. The surrounding areas of the city are packed with natural beauty and cultural sights bearing witness to the city's dynamic history. There is diverse range of places to satisfy culinary desires as the local cuisine is also heavily influenced by its neighbors in all directions. Wine lovers will find Slovenia to be a hidden gem. One of the best ways we have found to get to know Ljubljana and Slovenian cuisine at the same time is on a food tour, which will take you on a gastronomical tour of the whole country while walking around the center. The city layout is tourist friendly as the Old Town has an ever expanding pedestrian zone and a great way to see Ljubljana is by bike taking advantage of the numerous bike lanes spread out across the city.

A little about Salzburg
With its perfectly preserved UNESCO-listed Old Town, Salzburg is renowned internationally for its baroque architecture. Add the backdrop of the Alps and you’ve got a city that makes for an unforgettable holiday. The imposing Salzburg Cathedral and the Hohensalzburg Fortress dominate the skyline, and in the center you’ll find plenty of grand cafes and fine restaurants. Salzburg’s two biggest claims to fame are that it was the birthplace of Mozart and the stage for the timeless musical The Sound of Music. But there’s more than just history here. Today the city is a vibrant destination for travelers looking for a mix of classic culture and modern flair. Strolling through Salzburg is one of the great pleasures of Europe. The local cuisine is hearty and there are more than enough restaurants, bars and cafes to keep you busy. Beer lovers shouldn’t miss sampling a stein or two of delicious local brew at the Augustiner brewery. But there is so much to see in the surrounding region that no visit to the city is complete without a day trip or two. You could tour through the pristine countryside to visit the stunning Hellbrunn Palace. History buffs will want to venture farther afield to visit Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest perched high in the Alps in Berchtesgaden.

A little about Vienna
Vienna is a timeless city of high culture, grand cafes, breathtaking architecture and more, all set on the banks of the majestic Danube River. The moment you set foot in the city you’ll see why Vienna’s center is on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Often regarded as the world capital of music, Vienna is the place where Beethoven and Mozart made history. Even today a visit to the opera or a classical music performance at one of the city’s sublime concert halls is an unforgettable experience. The center of Vienna, St. Stephen’s Square, is dominated by the impressive gothic cathedral of the same name. Inside you’ll find a rich collection of artistic treasures, and the view from the tower is well worth the climb, offering amazing views over the city. But the cathedral is only one of the most visible attractions in Vienna. You won’t want to miss the magnificent Schonbrunn Palace and the imperial Hofburg. Explore the city on foot, in a car, or by bike: the choice is yours. If you’d like to go farther afield you can even take a river cruise to nearby Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, or a bike trip to local wineries. But you don’t have to leave Vienna to have a wonderful time. Simply strolling through the pedestrian zones in the city center and stopping for a coffee and a slice of cake make for a truly enjoyable holiday.

JayWay Travel staff are professional, detailed, easy to work with, give the client the feeling that they are the most important thing in the world at that moment, set the confidence level very high that the traveler doesn't have to worry about anything - everything will be taken care of. The level of detail that's in the itinerary is amazing, never any doubt about what will take place. JayWay Travel is outstanding!! Don't stop what you're doing!
We have not regretted for a moment, we entered the Jay Way world. Within minutes they had sent us an itinerary for our proposed trip and later gave us several selections for accommodations at various levels of comfort. We saved ourselves hours of self inflicted searching, pondering, reserving and unnecessary risk. We were comforted greatly at the transition points, i.e., being met as we arrived at each location, having a city tour to orient us to each city, and then transport to either the train station or by shuttle to our next destination. We recommend Jay Way Travel without any reservation. The time, energy, and effort they saved us was worth every dollar of their fee, which by any accounts was very reasonable.
JayWay Travel uses their local knowledge and understanding about the needs of travelers to create wonderful trips. Traveling to Central Europe with their itinerary planning made our 2 weeks absolutely perfect.
JayWay Travel put together an awesome vacation for our group that was customized to our specific wishes. However, the biggest debt of gratitude goes to Judit Holp, our Central European Destination Manager in Budapest, who worked directly with me to set up all our air travel and transfers, hotel accommodations, intercity limo and train travel, dinner reservations and tour bookings. Without her assistance, everything wouldn’t have gone as smoothly as it did, and we wouldn’t have been able to see as much as we did.
"JayWay is a boutique travel company who specializes in individualized travel itineraries. Every member of their team is professional and friendly and is eager to make you next trip you dream vacation!"
"JayWay Travel was fabulous. We travelled to Budapest, Bratislava, Vienna, Prague, Salzburg and Munich with JayWay. This was my first time using JayWay and I could not have asked for a better-planned trip.
I cannot say enough good things about our travel with JayWay. I highly recommend them."
Excellent. If you want to design a tour for your personal interests it is the only way to ,go. Don't bypass the Baltic States! JayWay will make sure you have the best experience. If you want to see the best of Croatia or any of the former Yugoslavia, don't hesitate to contact JayWay. It's personalised to your interests and you will not get better service on the ground.
"Great staff to work with. Everything went perfectly, drivers on time, hotels were just what we were looking for with great locations. Guides were fantastic. Everything went smoothly and it was nice to talk to someone rather than just email. Our driver in Budapest was wonderful. He took us to the train and showed us where the platform was and how to read the board. He went above and beyond when he saw my husband was nervous about it and actually showed us our car and seats. That is such special service."
"I've been organizing travel for my friends and family for years and I've never come across a company that put so much effort into details. We always felt like we had a lifeline in places that were all very foreign to us. I have the highest regard for Jayway. They treat their family right and the result is top notch quality. Everyone went above and beyond any expectations!"
"Jayway people really listen to their clients' needs and respond effectively. Personal service backed up by deep knowledge of Central Europe. Kevin Axe effectively listened to me and created the perfect trip for us. Friendly face to face service especially Marek and Nataly were outstanding. Each hotel was high quality and perfectly located. Right in the heart of each old city. Wonderful choices! On time, excellent English, clean vehicles, friendly drivers."
"Everything worked beautifully and everything was completely and efficiently handled from start to finish. All we had to do is show up and have fun."
"JayWay Travel was exactly what we needed in planning our vacation. Other travel agencies offered tours that included most of the places that we wanted to see, but we were not able to fit into their fixed time schedules and routes. JayWay offered us the flexibility that we needed. We had the secure feeling of being on an organized tour, and JayWay's scheduling allowed us plenty of free time to explore the cities as we liked."
"JayWay took a lot of hassle out of the trip and gave excellent guidance & suggestions in finalising the individual cities on our trip. This was clearly based on considerable experience with each of the countries. We particularly loved the transfer service at each location. It was most welcome when arriving somewhere tired and not knowing where to go! The local contacts also provided outstanding help and guidance on the road and the mobile phone was a great idea."
"It is so comforting knowing someone is a phone call away to help. Every place we visited left an impression on our hearts and we appreciate all your help with our trip of a life time! When traveling to the unknown - JayWay makes one feel all is right with the world!"
"Jay and the team responded promptly to my requests, with complete information. Their in-depth local knowledge, unique hotel choices, recommendations on things to do, tours, scheduling all added up to a great vacation."
