What people are saying about Split-Dalmatia County

It was a great tour with two kind and helpful guides (Jure and Petar). The tour is a mix of swimming and hiking, a little jumping is also included. Not the most action-packed canyoning I’ve done but it was still very nice. Don’t forget to bring food to eat on the way back and a dry pair of shoes as well! Recommend this!

The tour was so much fun and so good organized. Beautiful place that I would definitely want to visit again. The tour guides are really nice and funny guys and they know what they are doing. It's really one thing you have to do when you are in Croatia!!

This tour was just great fun! Great guides, great atmosphere and the river is wonderfully beautiful. Everything is included on the tour: climbing, hanging down, swimming, diving, cliff jumping ...
