Fun tour, well worth the price. Once we showed up, there was even a surprise tubing experience. Our guide was friendly and fun and gave us good tips to make sure our experience was smooth. Highly recommend.

Fantastic experience. Went with my 11yo, not too hard paddling. Good fun in the cave and cliff jumping but swimming with all the fish was AMAZING. Eric and Goran are lovely and attentive hosts

Great tour with two very nice guides. We did the tour with our two daughters (8 and 13). Visiting the cave and cliff jumping were our highlights.

Well organised, very friendly guides. Very busy at the cave visit, but the guide managed to get us in. Absolutely recommendable!

Amazing tour, perfect tour guide, very well organized trip!
