This was such a great trip. The staff were fantastic the whole time-from the transportation to the rafting. The rafting itself was really good. There’s a few chances for a swim and the river isn’t that difficult, so it is suitable for everyone. They aren’t massive rapids, but still really enjoyable and the river is crystal clear so you can watch the fish swim by on the flat parts of the river. They provide drinks and biscuits at the end as well as an opportunity to see the photos that were taken so you can choose to purchase them or not. Overall, I highly recommend this trip.

Huge compliments to the organizers and the team in advance! Thank you for these great moments! We won't forget that for the rest of our lives. If you want to see Croatia's great scenery and are still looking for some thrills, you shouldn't miss this!! What you see from the river Cetina you would otherwise not see at all. Breathtaking nature, waterfalls and caves. We will definitely repeat this. Thank you again! ☺️

Good organization with a very helpful staff. The tour itself was also enjoyable with children too. The cliff jumping and cave swimming are not to be missed :)

It was a super great rafting tour. We also had a great guide (George) who made this day an unforgettable day with a lot of humor.

A complete success from start to finish. Good organization and nice guides. I definitely recommend it to everyone.
