A Responsible Boutique Tour Operator
Creating Life Stories, Naturally.
A cycling and outdoor tour operator, specialised in destinations that include a wealth of natural beauty, vibrant history, rich culture and the great outdoors.
We develop our tours working with nature, being friendly to travelers and locals at the same time.
Our story did not start with the establishment of the company in 2015 but 5 years earlier when the Institute Factory of Sustainable Tourism GoodPlace was born. This organization now plays an important role in the development of sustainable tourism in Slovenia and globally.
Visit GoodPlace is therefore just a continuation of our mission. It is a place where we bring our knowledge and sustainable tourism products to life.
Our mission is to create authentic and unique experiences for our guests while supporting responsible travel and nature preservation.
We aim to minimize negative effects on the natural and social environment and maximize benefits to local businesses.
We believe in a green future.

“Today’s tourism trend always uses the word ‘authenticity,’ but using the word isn’t enough. For behavior to be real, locals should believe it’s right for their community. If visitors enjoy it, great, but not as the first concern.”
- Jan Klavora for Bicycling Magazine
“In Slovenia, just bringing in tourists without a sustainability strategy is worse than having no tourists. Our hope for Bike Slovenia Green is that destinations here, and elsewhere in the world, realize you can be responsible and popular. The larger goal is to show responsibility and tourism are the same.”
- Jana Apih for Bicycling Magazine
Top quality service
Quality over quantity. Ask our guests.
We did the Trans Slovenia 01 with 14 guys from Belgium
It was a wonderful experience. We are impressed by the beautiful country and the openness of the people. Our guide Andrej was very pleasant. It was nice that he knew a lot about the history of the country. He is also flexible and pleasant to deal with. We rent hardtail, fully and e-bikes. They were all from a very good quality. Congratulations to Good-place who has made this trip work so well!
Wonderful Cycle Tour Experience
My friend and I recently did the self-guided 8 day (6 of them cycling) tour of the Adriatic Coast and Istria Peninsula. We hired ebikes and they and the other equipment, panniers etc were of a very high quality. The organization of the tour was first class. Matic and Katja were knowledgeable and helpful and if there was an issue they responded and sorted things very quickly. The route planning, hotels and food were great. We highly recommend Visit Good Place. We recommend that rather than go through another travel agency you contact them directly. Their English is excellent.

Outstanding / Faultess
We recently cycled Istria to the Adriatic self guided for one week. From our first contact with the company their service and response was outstanding. And the whole trip was exactly as promised. This is our 14th cycling tour around the world and this is one of the very best. Great bikes, great accommodation, fabulous routes. A very thorough, reliable and professional company. We hope to cycle with you again and wish more cycle companies were of your very high standard. Thank you Katja and all the Visit Good Place team
Amazing family bike trip
We traveled for a week visiting beautiful places on the Italian coast, Slovenia and Croatia. Our guide and all the support team were excellent! It was fun to cycle along the parenzana (former railway) with diverse kinds of terrains. Wonderful food, charming hotels. We highly recommended this trip! “Istria to the Adriatic”
