It was the best thing that I experienced in Montenegro for 2 weeks of my vacation! The trip to the rafting site itself was very attractive. We stopped at beautiful viewpoints, the route by Tara was fantastic! The guide Nina talked about Montenegro in an interesting and cheerful manner. The breakfast was huge and delicious. Rafting was an interesting adventure. We got comfortable and warm wetsuits. We sailed, among others downstream and we visited a small waterfall. There were no announced jumps into the water. However, it was the only company that organized rafting off-season. There was a big tasty dinner after rafting, we even took a takeaway part. From the skipper, the group could buy a memory card with photos and videos from rafting for 40 euro (our group did not want it). It would be better if the price of the tour included these photos. The logistics of the trip was very efficient, there was only an incorrect link to the meeting point in the application. A good link was in the ema

Brilliant tour from start to finish! Our lovely tour guide Luca told us lots of interesting information and really bonded the group. The drive to/from rafting was long - around 2 hour 45 minutes each way - but it went surprisingly quickly because it was broken up with photo stops and coffee/toilet breaks (longest stretch without toilet break was 2 hours). The river was stunning and the rafting guide was excellent, we rafted for around 2.5/3 hours. All the equipment (shoes, wetsuit, helmet, life jacket was provided). Finally, the food was amazing! We had a big cheese, ham and bread spread for breakfast (plus drink), and three courses for lunch (soup, main, and fresh made doughnuts, plus free drink). The meals were included, which would cost around 20-25 euros

A great experience. The guide Nina and our skipper were both fantastic. Its also a great way to see North Montegenro as you need to drive a long distance to reach the camp. Its very safe and we took out 11 year old daughter who had an equally great time. Highly recommended

One of the best trips we've ever done! The long journey is broken up with opportunities to take photos of the spectacular scenery. The food and rafting were fantastic and the tour guide and rafting guys were really friendly. Definitely recommend!

The tour guide was great! she also had a beautiful singing voice. The white water rafting was done great and the food was also delicious.
