star rating  We were here at the beginning of July, from Sunday to Tuesday. So we had 20% discount because it is not during the weekend. It was suitable for our family because this time we prefered peace and quiet (we were totally alone in the camp!). When we come next time we would maybe come as a group (without kids) so we will choose weekend (live rock music) and maybe we will come in May to see how it is when the ricers are higher. It doesn't mean that rafting wasn't great this time. Food was very good, skippers and staff are great. Thanks to you all! (Ana, Aleksa, Pavle, Milan, Ognjen) P.S. Staff helped us in our trying to find my lost glasses and our lost car keys. 😉

star rating  Amazing (and wheelchair accessible) experience - As a wheelchair user, I was a bit worried if I can go on this type of tour but Tara Rafting team convinced me that they will try everything they can to take on a rafting trip. We've been on rafting in July 2022. and I can honestly say that this is one of the best experiences I've ever had. The whole team is both professional and fun and everyone that wants to have a great time on Tara/Drina rivers should contact them.
