      Super 2 hour boat trip with Kingfisher
      We took a 2 hour boat trip which was really well organised. The host Alexander and two captains were great. Alexander was very informative, attentive and loved his job. We were lucky to see so many different species of birds. The views are stunning and the glass of wine onboard was a nice treat. We would highly recommend

      Fantastic tour in a beautiful natural setting
      We had been recommended several boat tours on Lake Skadar prior to going but Kingfisher came highly recommended and it did not disappoint. The boat is comfortable with plenty of room (and shade) to enjoy the two hour tour on Lake Skadar. If you are interested in nature and wildlife the early morning trip is for you - two hours is plenty of time to see the highlights without it becoming too much. Coffee/ tea and a snack is provided during the tour and the guide helped us to spot plenty of species of bird and wader as well as talking to us about the history of the lake and its strategic importance. A very enjoyable experience and well worth signing up to with Kingfisher.

      Excellent boat tour on Lake Skadar
      Would highly recommend the boat trip and Kingfisher. Excellent information was provided before the visit in order to arrange a tour for someone who had hurt their knee. Milica was brilliant in choosing the best boat option for access. We booked a private tour for two people for 3-4 hours. There was flexibility to do 3 or 4 and the captain asked us what we wanted to do at the turnaround point for 3 hours. Balsa was an excellent skipper and provided just the right amount of information. The scenery was stunning. Never seen a snake swimming before, nor pelicans. Thank you for the loan of the binoculars. Shame we are going home tomorrow or we would have rebooked!

      Fantastic trip with George
      Great trip and fantastic guide, George. We had two kids 10 & 11 who were amazed by the tour and swimming in the sea. The blue caves were great and james bond music in the submarine tunnels were nice touches. Recommend for anyone looking for a good trip and worth the money.

      Wonderful boat trip and nice wine!
      Excellent relaxing tour to experience Lake Skadar and see it’s beauty. Our tour guide was very knowledgable on the different wildlife of the lake. Very nice local wines to try onboard - the nicest we had during our time in Montenegro.

      Perfect tour if you only have half a day left.
      I missed my first tour but the lady was kind enough to put on the next. It didn’t include dom monastery but totally worth it. The tour guide was extremely professional and knowledgeable. Provided wine, also picked water chestnuts from the lake for us to try. Overall, very satisfied with my experience. Would definitely recommend going with them.

      Great experience
      I took a 3hour boat ride to the monastery from 4 pm. It was very beautiful. There was also local donuts and wine tasting. The only thing I didn't like so much was the promised swimming in the lake. It was happening in the middle of the lake. I would prefer going somewhere to the coast and swim from there.

      Excellent boat tour on Skadar Lake
      Amazing views, capitan Petar was very friendly and kind, he shared a lot of information about the lake. We also got to taste typical red and white wine and also got a snack😋 We also stopped near water lilies to take really beautiful pictures. Almosy at the end of the tour we also stopped in the middle of the lake and were albe to go swimming for a few minutes. It was really nice. Highly recommend.😁

      beautiful lake, disappointing guide
      Tour was very well organized (meeting point, check-in, boarding) and stuff was very friendly. However, not much guidance. I was hoping for some information about fauna and flora in this beautiful scenery, but nothing was said. Basically tour guide wasn't speaking much, more interested in own mobile phone. We learned where the restaurant is, where the old prison was and how much fisherman earns. That's all during 2h tour. This was very disappointing, as well the warm drinks served during the boat tour (warm wine or warm juice). Therefore overall experience I rate 2/5.

      Bespoke Birdwatching tour to see the Dalmatian pelican
      We went on our tour in April 2023. The customer service was great and made very easy, we arranged our tour the night before using WhatsApp and specified we wanted to go on a bird watching tour. We met our captain early the following morning where he greeted us with fruit tea, blankets, binoculars, and bird spotting books. Although it was emphasised to us that they couldn’t promise we would see the Dalmatian pelican our captain used all of his expertise to try and locate one. Much to our delight it was successful! The early start and cold breeze was worth it. Our tour continued and we even managed to spot a kingfisher. I would highly recommend this tour to any keen bird spotters.

      Lovely afternoon out on Lake Skadar
      Lovely little trip out. The town of Virpazar doesn’t have much else to do so make sure you book an appropriate time. There wasn’t any benefit to me booking in advance in the end and all the tours seemed to be the same price on arrival anyway. Regardless, really nice hosts, lovely views and informative guides.

      Highlight of holiday
      Very professional people to deal with. We decided to book an extra hour when we boarded the private boat for 4 and they were flexible enough to let us do this. We had a lovely, young boat captain who was most obliging. A lovely day; the highlight of our holiday in Montenegro. I would say an unmissable experience. The lake is gorgeous with its bulrushes and lilies.

    Great skipper that gave a lot of explanation. On the way back we faced an unexpected storm and were obliged to end the trip early. The team did organise a perfect pickup within minutes. Great service!!

    It’s stunning lake and would be perfect if you go private or with small group. Also I guess it’s better to go either in the early morning or to see sunset. Pelicans are only in Albanian side unfortunately.

    Our tour guide welcomed us with amazing local pastries. He was a thoughtful skipper willing to accommodate the high temps by stopping for dips in the cool water. Plenty of water and local wine and introduction to local plant and bird life. Highly recommended excursion

    A lovely long and relaxing boat trip which gave you time for lunch at a monastery village. We saw pelicans, grebes and herons as well as the beautiful water lilies. They also gave us snacks and wine on the boat-highly recommended!

    Our trip was on July 9. Departure was at 11:30 a.m., returning around 6 p.m., without delay. During the tour, we were served drinks (local wine and drink water) and warm homemade donuts "priganice" with honey!
    The route of the trip is lovely! There were two stops for swimming in the lake. The boat ride was leisurely so we could enjoy the local fauna and nature. Then there was a 1-hour stop in Rijeka Crnojevica. This is more than enough to explore this picturesque village. There are restaurants, and you can relax.
    We liked our guide. His interaction with passengers is 10 out of 10. Therefore, we did not quite understand some of the previous reviews about the boring trip and the lack of frequent stories from the guide. He didn't tell much, but it allowed us to enjoy the local scenery fully. In addition, he always slowed down the boat when we saw a new bird so that we could photograph it if possible. He is very friendly and outgoing.
    Another important point... we were lucky that there were no russians among the passengers. It is always nice to be in the company of adequate people:).
    To finalize, all the staff of Kingfisher were great from the beginning to the end. We can say that our expectations were exceeded. It is one of the best companies you can choose in Virpazar!
    Hello to your guide from Ukraine...I think his name was Vranas or Branas. Sorry if I wrote it wrong :).
