What people are saying about Herceg Novi

It was the best thing that I experienced in Montenegro for 2 weeks of my vacation! The trip to the rafting site itself was very attractive. We stopped at beautiful viewpoints, the route by Tara was fantastic! The guide Nina talked about Montenegro in an interesting and cheerful manner. The breakfast was huge and delicious. Rafting was an interesting adventure. We got comfortable and warm wetsuits. We sailed, among others downstream and we visited a small waterfall. There were no announced jumps into the water. However, it was the only company that organized rafting off-season. There was a big tasty dinner after rafting, we even took a takeaway part. From the skipper, the group could buy a memory card with photos and videos from rafting for 40 euro (our group did not want it). It would be better if the price of the tour included these photos. The logistics of the trip was very efficient, there was only an incorrect link to the meeting point in the application. A good link was in the ema

A successful trip from start to finish. We started on time and drove to the specified stations with the speedboat. Our captain Alex took care of everything and quickly got jackets for all six participants, as it was getting a bit cold due to the early time and season. At each stop there was information from Alex and on the way back we were also able to walk through Perast for a short 10 minutes to see the city, since none of us wanted to take the bathing stop and there was some time left. We can only recommend the activity!

Extremely friendly and decisive staff, we were traveling on a cruise ship and I arrived late at the port, even so they respected our reservation and modified our tour to get to know the beautiful Kotor I highly recommend this provider

Our captain Eno was great. Very informative. This was perfect for our time on the Island from our cruise ship. It was cold BUT we jumped into the water at the cave and it was amazing

It was fantastic!! The guide was so friendly and the location was quiet easy to see
