    The trip is excellent! You will enjoy the most beautiful rafting experience with a great breakfast and lunch included. Everything is very well coordinated - just show up and enjoy the ride! Luka our guide is full of knowledge, super friendly, and as an extra his awesome playlist on the car ride to Tara Canyon and back is just going to make it even more enjoyable. If you are in Montenegro and are looking to explore the region outside of Boka Bay, this trip is definitely an excellent choice combining scenery, great food, great company, and an unforgettable adventure

    Hello! My boyfriend and I had a great day thanks to Slavko. He drove us all the way to the rafting starting point, which was a long drive. Thanks to his humor and great knowledge about Montenegro, time really flew by. He also stopped several times so we could take amazing pictures at wonderful places. When we arrived at the camp, it was time for breakfast. I must say that it was one of the best breakfasts we've had during our trip. After that, it was time for the rafting. We must say that we thought it would be more challenging. The guide also was not very enthusiastic. The only thing he said was 'go' and 'stop', haha. After the rafting (2,5h), we had a great dinner! Overall, we had a great experience, especially thanks to Slavko, our guide during the car trip! ;)

    The trip was organized very well for the small details. Our guide Milos was great he has a lot of knowledge and he is funny too. Tara river is great and the water is so refreshing and clear. And the food in the camp was very good and tasty. One of our best days in the trip.
