This was a fun day. Our tour guide Slavko was great at giving us the history as we moved up the mountain and of the river. The white water rafting is a ton of fun as well as jumping off the rocks and swimming in the river. The water is so clean and we drank the water from the river all day. The lunch is also very good. The fish was excellent. I recommend this adventure.

This was by far the best excursion we went on! We had the most brilliant time, we did the private transfer to the Tara river water rafting. we had originally booked with a different company for the usual coach with others, but it got cancelled due to there not being enough people. We thought at first that the price was over what we wanted to spend, as it was double compared to the previous trip that was booked, but in all honesty it was most certainly worth every penny spent! From the moment we were picked up, our tour guide Pava was amazing!! She went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our trip. The brunch and dinner was delicious! The best I’d had whilst being in Montenegro. Being veggie, is not very accommodating, but the Pava was too veggie which helped a lot! It was also her birthday, so we even had a slice of birthday cake! The skipper Nikola was also awesome! He put us at the front of the raft, and managed every turn effortlessly to give us the best ride!

Fantastic day, the whole experience was awesome. Our guide Milos and driver Nikolas made the day complete. The rapids are 3 or 4 level depending on the time of year. We had a mix of mainly 3’s but it was great fun, made all the better as the banter between M & N was hilarious! The knowledge that these guys possess is unreal, what they don’t know isn’t worth knowing. If you want a tip on anything Montenegrin just ask them! We were let down by another booking agency, but the guys at Monte360 made up for it! Totally recommend them and if you get Milos you won’t be disappointed!
