Our driver was great and very informative. The scenery on the drive was absolutely amazing! I enjoyed the traditional food provided, just wish we had had the opportunity for some photo breaks on the drive along the Piva river.

Our driver and guide was Vid. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. The drive is long but interesting
As you pass through Bosnia into Montenegro. The rafting was calm the day we went but the scenery
Was beautiful. There were 7 of us and we all agree without Vid who gave us so much detail and
Information and interacted with us it wouldn't been as great a day.

Amazing trip! Views were stunning, and rafting was super fun! However, we had no quide with us, only a bus driver who did not tell much about the surroundings etc. Nevertheless, this was a suberb experience! Rafting was also very safe, yet enough fun. We had a five years old local girl in our boat with her father who is a rafting guide. This tells something about how dangerous it is....

What an awesome trip. The LOOONG ride is worth the view and experience. The rafting was mild, but we had the chance to jump from some big rocks.
Totally recommended.

We truly loved this excursion. The van picked us up on time in the morning, we had a very friendly driver who was giving us briefings and explanations of the surroundings all the way, photo stops and on top of it all, a great rafting experience. The rapids are not difficult at all, yet so much fun!

I know what you're thinking... Waking up at 5:30 AM to get ready for this early-morning tour isn't probably what you want to do in Dubrovnik. Let me tell you something. It is totally worth it!!! And, you can bring your kids with you. I was in the same boat with a 7-year-old and a 9-year-old. They were just fantastic and enjoyed every single second of it with us. Here is the routine:

1. Hotel pick-up Everyone in the van was super quiet because it was so early.
2. 3 - 4 hour drive through Bosnia and Herzegovina to Montenegro multiple exit and entry border checks through three different countries Croatia, B and H and Montenegro can be time-consuming and frustrating. The scenery on the way is amazing!
3. Breakfast in the base camp Bring euros if you want to buy coffee.
4. A short ride to the beginning point the ride is on an unpaved road, so brace yourself
5. The ride 2-3 hours begins and there are about three breaks on the way. There are bars on the way. So, if you want a drink, bring euros again
6. Lunch in the base camp this lunch was amazing!!!
7. Head back home and enjoy the beautiful scenery during the return trip.

This was a really great tour. It was a bit of a long drive, but our guide Ivan made several stops to allow us to take photos at scenic areas. While these prolonged the trip by a little bit, it was worth it as the scenery along the way was fantastic. The river was pretty tame with a few fun rapids kids could do it. Its a tad cold, but you are given a wet suit. On the river, too, the scenery is fantastic. We had one stop during the rafting at a river-side bar and waterfall that happened to be on the route don't need to bring money for the bar, you can pay when you get back to the end. Bring a waterproof camera if you have one, sunblock, sunglasses, towel. And whatever you do, don't forget your passport. The water is clean enough to drink, which we all did when we got thirsty.

Great rafting trip. Driver / Guide was excellent and knowledgable of the area and history. The river guides were excellent and professional. The breakfast and lunch of local products and cuisine was very good. Be prepared for a long day and bring euros as well as Kunas. We highly recommend this trip.
