      Kingfisher Lake Skadar boat trip
      Awesome boat trip on the lake, very relaxing, great price and loads of information from Peter our captain. Couldn't fault it, well worth it and would recommend it for anyone

      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!

      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.

      Enjoyable trip around Skadar Lake
      Very enjoyable trip for about 3.5 hrs. Great views of the (North West of Virpazar) side of the Lake. Very reasonable price. Would recommend.

      Stunning lake
      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.

      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.😁

      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.

      Beautiful views
      My husband and I did the 6-hour tour on the third day of our trip and we both loved it. Our guide, Bakip (not sure about the spelling) was great, always slowing down the boat when we passed by birds and drawing our attention to them. This isn't the type of tour where the guide shares so many facts with you that you can't remember all of them, but is rather a relaxing boat ride through a beautiful lake to a cute little village for lunch. Unfortunately it started downpouring on our way back, but Bakip did a good job of keeping our spirits up and the rain added another later of beauty to the area. We were served local wine and traditional Montenegrin breakfast fried dough, both of which were delicious. I recommend this tour to anyone looking to explore the Lake Skadar area and spend a relaxing day in nature.

      V good but a little too long
      Lovely day out with a nice tour guide. But we felt the trio could have been shorter overall but a linger stop to get food

      Amazing trip and nature of Lake Skadar
      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 :).

      Our highest recommendation! Great tour and friendliness!
      We took a 3 hours tour with our 10 and 12 years kids! Perfectly organized, genuine and friendly! The boat is a traditional one and has a shelter so all passengers (ca 12-14 people, sitting all comfortably) have shadow. The scenaries are amazing! Definitely worth a visit! We were offered some local wine tasting and some delicious typical breakfast snack. Best of all is the friendliness and prompt answes before booking! Thanks Milica and Philip (our driver!) . We definitely will recommend you to all our friends! Hope to see you again somewhere in Montenegro or Sweden! Take care!

      Refreshing, scenic tour of Lake Skadar!
      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

      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.

    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.

    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.

    Dearest Emma, Meeting you is one of those memories that instantly makes us smile! We are happy we had the chance to get to know you and be your hosts. We would be more than thrilled to have you another time!

    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.

    It is a peaceful lake with lots of water lilies and birds. The boat trip took 2 hours. It was very hard to find a parking spot.

    Dear traveller, Thank you for taking the time to support our business. We appreciate your feedback and are happy that you enjoyed the tranquillity of the lake with our team. On the other hand, thank you for mentioning that it is hard to find a parking spot during the summer. We advise our future travellers to prepare for their day on Lake Skadar ahead and to arrive in the village an hour or two before the departure. Thank you once again. Regards, KINGFISHER TEAM

    Alex was a great guide! He gave a great tour in fluent German and English. It was really great. We can only recommend the tour. The wine tasting was also great! Because of his friendly manner, the atmosphere on board was very relaxed and it was easy to get into conversation with the other guests. The nature is breathtaking!

    Everything was perfect. A peaceful and beautiful magical moment. Swimming time well enjoyed with a complimentary glass of wine on the way back.
    We took the 2 hour route, which seemed more than enough. Great restaurant in Virpazar. Be careful when coming, turn right onto the railway track or better, park immediately after on the left in a parking lot. We missed each other on the way there.
