The tour guides were very friendly and made the experience very enjoyable. This was our first time rafting and was the perfect river to start on as rapids were tame but enjoyable. We got picked up from our hotel and dropped off at the starting point on the river and then returned to our hotel after. The guide made it fun by making it very interactive by playing games and teaching us a Slovenian song. Highly recommend to everyone and would be suitable for families. One of the highlights of my trip

We really enjoyed the tour and felt that it was a really great way of seeing the main attractions in Slovenia. Our guide was very informative and friendly and tailored the experience to our preferences and guided us with timings so we were able to enjoy all the sites stress-free.
