We had a fantastic time rafting with a great guide- Dario- who made the experience very enjoyable! We paid for the transfer from Split which went very smoothly so I'd recommend that if you don't have a car. The rafting was not too strenuous but still with exciting rapids. You also get the opportunity to go into a cave and do cliff jumping which was fun too. Would highly recommend!

Duje was an amazing rafting guide! This tour was one of the most fun activities we were able to do on our trip. All of the natural beauty was beyond impressive and the rafting had a lot of fun points but also nice and relaxing too! Highly recommend this trip. :)

Was incredible, the river is beautiful, the people are really kind and friendly, the activity has different things from other raftings and the weather was perfect. I completely recommend this one.

Amazing, social and funny guides. And overall a great experience in Croatia :)
