We were first time rafters and I did not know what to expect, but this was one of the best activities we have experienced during our trips as a couple. The team was amazing, every member of the team, they were all super friendly, gave good instructions and made sure we had fun the whole time. The pictures we got after, were great as well. My tip to people looking into booking this activity is-when they ask if you want to jump into the cave, do it. I am afraid of a lot of things, but this was exciting and you won’t regret it. Thanks!

Incredibly good tour! The river and canyon is beautiful. Our guide Christian was great! Very engaging, funny and told us a lot about the river and Croatia! One of the best tours we've been on!

Well organized. Very special because you get out of the boat and walk under a waterfall, swim through a cave and then go back into the boat. Of course at the beginning of May with a wetsuit on.

This was a beautiful and exciting adventure that was lead by an incredible guide and 2 excellent trainees. This was one of our favorite experiences while in Croatia. Definitely check it out!!

Amazing rafting trip with fun and friendly guides! Beautiful drive up through the mountains and then rafting down a river with an optional cave tour and cliff jumping
