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. :)

Great day out! Our guide Marin was lovely, we had great fun doing the cliff jump and walking through the waterfall too! One tip bring spare shoes! We didn’t realise you need to wear shoes in the boat and they’ll get soaked!!

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.

So fun! A little scary but the guides are trained well to keep us safe!

Great fun day out. Guide was lovely. Beautiful views
