It was a fantastic experience; I would recommend it to everyone!
It is an exciting and relaxing wooden boat ride. Beautiful panorama, stop swimming in the lake, and then dry off at sunset while sipping wine with friends. We were in groups of seven young people in the boat, so we had a blast! Our guide was also helpful and kind. We took a selfie together as a keepsake.

Fabulous value for money!
Value for money was fabulous. The tour around this part of Lake Skadar was beautiful! Be aware that it's a mixed group tour - we had rowdy and bored children with us but were aware that we hadn't paid for a private tour!

Enjoyable - We recommend it!
It was an enjoyable and calm moment; the lake water was slightly colder than the sea but not cold. The wine was good, and the skipper was very friendly and helpful. We recommend this activity.
