We rafted on the Tara river with the tour company Eko Piva (http://www.raftingmontenegro.com/). We had a great time. The guides were very good. They were very safety conscious and had great attitudes. When we went the water was high and fast and the weather was cold. We didn't get to cliff jump because of the cold and rainy weather but the guides did build us a fire to warm up part way through the trip. The rapids were very rough and the current was fast but the guides did a great job getting us through. The scenery is very beautiful. Would highly recommend it.

You are amazing Globtour Montenegro :) - On behalf of our entire team (Artistika) I want to thank you for providing us the opportunity to have whitewater - Team building at Tara. Thank you for logistics. Your thoroughness in instruction and your concern for safety were tremendous and you should be proud of your staff. When the time comes for us to have the opportunity to raft again we would definitely choose your company and I will refer you to any company considering such an amazing adventure.
Perfect choice if you want to have your guys working together like never.

Rating down the Tara river is really something special, from adventurous experience to real 'widl beauty' which you see on your way. You may freely drink water from the river on your way.

Though the most important is to have good equipment, and a good skipper.

I've read Isabella's review, and am very sad to realize that it is still possible to find some of the rafter leaders who don't pay enough attention to safety.

We went there twice, honestly 9 years ago. - that's why I believed safety is not a question any more. We went with the rafters form the Bosnian side. First time it was perfect, real fun, but skipper was a great guy, joking when possible but yelling when dangerous (you really must take an active part in rowing down the river and listen to skipper carefullly). From equipment we only had special shoes-boots (which don't have that significant role.
We passed it with great excitement and pleasure. Therefore next year we decided to go for it again.

Fortunately this time we had shoes-boots and life jackets! But we had a poor skipper (he was like a shy guy who doesn't know that he should command more strictly). We turned upside down twice, got bitten all over the body from kicking the rocks under the water on our way through the wild water part to a more slow one. Life jacket really helped pulling me out at the very last moment of diving letting me take a small breath before water pulled me in again.
As we were told, the only way out of the canyon is to go on, we had to finish it with the boat, but at the end, being pretty traumatized and full of blue kicked spots on our body, we didn't want to go for the second part which was supposed to be along Drina river, but could hardly wait to reach land and calm ourselves.
Therefore I'd probably never go for it again, though I'd highly recommend it if you are provided a good equipment, and very well checked skippers.

The best part Tara river didn't have enough water at the time when we were there, so we had to raft another part of the river. The rafting was OK, but not very exciting, especially for us that had tried rafting previously. The instructors were not very talkative and I don't feel they took the safety precautions that is normally required for rafting. It might be because of the low water, but it was still disappointing.
The scenery was anyhow very beautiful, and it was well worth the trip to see the nice blue water and marvelous steep mountain sides.
The camp site and small houses we lived in were really cute and charming.
