“Great Trip on Lake Skadar with the Golden Frog”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

We took a 1 hour trip with Ivana and Slavisa around Lake Skadar on the Golden Frog, a small traditional-style wooden boat. Although only 13, Ivana - who speaks perfect English - is a wonderful guide with lots of knowledge about the local area and the Lake. She was also a great hostess offering drinks (including homemade wine) and typical Montenegrin snacks as well as taking some photos for us to remember the trip by. Slavisa was also really friendly and even made us a necklace each out of waterlilies. We would definitely recommend a trip with the Golden Frog!

“Boat trip in paradise with a perfect guide!!!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Ivana has taken over form her uncle the Golde Frog boat trips on Lake Skadar. And how! She took us to the most beautiful part of the lake and we saw pelicans, many other water birds, thousands of water lilies and paid a visit to a tiny monastery. Her English is perfect! On the way she and her boatsman explained a lot about the lake and the area, answering any questions we had. We got more than we paid for. She offered homemade wine, cheese, honey, cakes and soft drinks, more than we could eat and drink! We paid for 3 hours and got one extra for free! We also appreciated the silent moments, just enjoying the breathtaking views.When you go to Montenegro, this trips is a must and number 1! Just email to sreten_ivanovic@yahoo.com.

“Great Choice”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

Don’t waste you time on looking for some random boats. We had a fantastic time with the Golden Frog (1h - €25) in April 2014, We travelled with our 20 months old daughter and this was just perfect (they provide safe life jackets for kids if you need one). We were lucky enough to be guided by Sreten’s (the owner) daughter Ivana who turned out to be a great host, very knowledgeable about Skadar Lake’s ecosystem, birds, plants and local history. Capitan was very experienced with many interesting stories to share (including one about Sreten being a former “Frog Hunter”... ) and even though our trip was relatively short, they’ve managed to make it feel special. It is a family business run by proud, hardworking people who love the Skadar Lake area. We would definitely recommend it!!!

“Gold star for the golden frog”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

Magnificent scenery, a real gem of a find!

The staff were lovely and made the boat ride very relaxing and easy-going. We were given a free drink on the trip! Going through the lilly pads on the boat and getting out in the lake for a paddle was fantastic.

I definitely would recommend this boat trip!
