brilliant tour with friendly people and great food very long day but i loved it
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.
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.
This trip was fantastic, even if it was a very long day approx. 12hrs from pick up to drop off. The driver Robert was very informative through out the drive you pass through Bosnia on the way to Montenegro and was happy to stop whenever the passengers wanted to. We stopped for coffee in a small town before we arrived at the rafting where we were provided with a buffet breakfast. We were then given our equipment, including a wetsuit not mentioned when booking and driven to the starting point. Unfortunately, due to conditions on the river we were unable to do the full 17km for H and S reasons melting snow so the course was reduced to 9km only however this did not spoil the day at all. once on the river, we stopped at several places to take pictures and climb the waterfalls. we even had the opportunity to swim in some of the pools on one particular waterfall. Once we returned to the base, we enjoyed a delicious Lamb lunch before starting the drive back. One of the most amazing things was to see the difference in landscape in three different countries in one day. It may be an expensive trip but believe me, it is worth every penny.
I will be back! This trip is just terrific! We were picked up by Robert, our guide, and drove from Dubrovnik to Montenegro. Robert bought us coffee and hot chocolate drink during the stop over at Bosnia because we did not have the local currency. It was 3 hours’ drive one way and the commute was not boring at all. We had nice chat. Arrived at the water rafting site we had breakfast and then lunch afterward (ask for fish not meat-the fish is delicious), we had a wonderful experience in the river, just the right amount of exercise. We are so grateful that we have chosen to join this trip.

Absolutely amazing trip. Our tour guide was amazing and very knowledgable. The rafting was actually quite calm and at no point did I feel out of my depth, there were even small children in some of the rafts. I highly recommend this trip and you get to travel through Bosnia and Montenegro too which are very beautiful countries.
Getting up for a 6am pickup isn't normally what I go for on a holiday, but it was well worth it. Stunning scenery both on the drive and down the river. Quite relaxed, although informed the rapids are deeper earlier on in the season

This was my first time rafting and this day trip was fun! If you're used to long drives, love filling up your passport with stamps and like experiencing new activities in new places, this trip is for you. Montenegro is stunning and our driver was very friendly. Take euros on the raft for a drink!
Overall, it was a great day.
It is a long drive from Dubrovnik to Montenegro and the border crossing's can take hours when busy but the drive back is spectacular so don't fall asleep. Definitely not "white water" rafting but still makes for a nice day. Beef lunch was fantastic. Driver was also great
Overall this tour was very good. We me and two friends were on vacation in Dubrovnik and we liked getting the chance to visit the countries of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro. We enjoyed the rafting and the landscape around the Tara River was absolutely stunning. We also liked the food served after the rafting.
There were a few things that I and/or my friends did not like about this trip:
- The drive from Dubrovnik to the Tara river is very, very long about four hours one way and I can't remember that being stated in the information about the tour. This means that you will spend way more time sitting in a car than rafting.
- We felt that our driver drove pretty recklessly. The roads in the region are narrow and often with steep cliffs on one side and we would have liked a calmer driving style.
- The actual rafting was a bit too easy, even for someone like myself with no previous rafting experience.
The best part of this tour was the company! The driver, Ivan, was phenomenal, giving a wonderful history and guided tour as the four of us made our way to the rafting adventure. He was literally the best part of the whole experience!
Some notes that I think will be helpful: we were able to leave our gear and valuables in the trunk of the car, so if you feel inclined to bring your phone for pictures, you can without having to bring it on the rafting portion of the tour. Also, you are given a wet suit, water shoes, vest and helmet. At the end of the trip, enclosed outdoor showers are available, as well as small changing rooms. Wear your comfy clothes, as the car ride is a couple hours. Our rafting guide spoke no English past go and stop, and we were unable to get drinks at the bar halfway thru, as our skipper was inclined to stay on the raft and smoke, and not vouch for our drinks. The food is good, the views are amazing, and if you're lucky enough to get Ivan, you'll be in for a real treat!
This was a full day event and it was alot of fun. It was cold while we were there and we were provided with wetsuits for the trip. The waters were not as white-water as they would be in the spring, but it was still lovely with moments of adventure. The views, driver, guides, and food were all amazing. I would recommend this trip!
I highly recommend this tour. The canyon is beautiful, the water is crystal clear and refreshing, and it was just a lot of fun. I knocked off one star only because it was class one or two rapids not the advertisement of class three and four. The driver was also excellent and great conversation to pass time during the drive.
The trip was very good. The driver/Guide looked after us very well.
Good Breakfast and a lovely lunch as well. A long drive from Dubrovnik but the scenery was fantastic.
Really fun trip. Great for beginners, it's not super difficult so experienced white water rafters shouldn't really bother rapids aren't much above a Class 2. The car ride to the river takes almost 5 hours so plan for that! I would definitely recommend this to travelers in Dubrovnik who want to get out of the city for a full day.
Loved this tour! Had an enjoyable trip down the river and although it wasn't fast flowing in July it was a great experience. The tour guide, Ivana, was lovely and so was the driver! It's a long day with most of it spent travelling to the site but definitely worth it.
An amazing experience! Fantastic setting of the Tara River, great instructors, equipment all provided, and great food ! Shame the bus journey was so long, but well worth the experience.
Great company and a great tour guide. Rafting was quite good, although we heard the word dangerous and felt quite safe the entire time. The thrill seeker in me wanted a bit more excitement, but overall a very good trip.
