We booked a rafting tour with Malduk Adventures. The service was very friendly.The rafting tour is a must have for guys who like to do something in the nature with a bit of adventure. We had a beautiful tour along the river with exiting moments of fast rafting. The skipper (his name is Toni) was also very good. He explained everything, brought attention to important safety things and he is good guy for fun and explore such an adventure.Besides the nature, we stopped by a waterfall where you ca drink directly from the hill.The whole experience was nice journey. In summertime it is also a good family activity. Rafting sounds extreme but this event is definitely also something for beginners.Thanks for this great day.

We did the rafting tour down Cetina river and we had the time of our life! Really a 10 out of 10. Sanja is a great captain who was firm in control but also made us laugh a lot. And Damir runs a tight organization and is very helpful and kind. During the trip there was also time for swimming, rope jumping, cliff diving and dipping under a waterfall. A great day for anyone! Highly recommendable.
