“Excellent to trip around Lake Skadar”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

We can thoroughly recommend Golden Frog for a trip around Lake Skadar. The owner Sreten really knows the lake and has a very obvious love for the lake and the conservation of the lake and surrounding areas which made our trip all the more memorable. We went as a family of 4 and enjoyed swimming in the glorious lake. Well worth a trip.

“Real experience.”
Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

Spent a lovely morning on Lake Skadar on the Golden Frog, a good way to see the quiet backwaters of the lake. Definitely worth a trip If you are in Montenegro.

“Top 3 experience on a 3 week trip in Montenegro”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We have spend 3 weeks exploring Montenegro. With the recommendation in the Lonely Planet and on tripadvisor, we decided to book a trip on the Golden Frog and WE LOVED IT!!!
We booked a 3 hour morning cruise for two people. When we arrived everything was ready and the owner asked what kind of cruise we liked and which activities we would like to do. He made it a real personal trip, completely to our favors. We had a chance to swim, do some fishing while we stopped for coffee, ... With his smaller size boat, we could go on the small channels, away from the big boats with more than 50 tourists on. We would recommend two hours or more (3 to 4 hours was perfect) to get a good sight of the lake and it's small channels. Take your camera and enjoy!

“Super trip on Skadar Lake”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

We went for a half day trip with Srecko on his beautiful boat the Golden Frog.
Skadar lake with its beautiful waterlillies and birds is worth the trip if you are visiting Montenegro. Departure from Virpazar next to the office where they sell the entrance tickets to the national park.
It is a good tip to go there and find out yourself how Srecko decided the name of the boat and what is the secret to attract the fish ;o). Srecko truly cares about the national park and is proud to share with his guests the beauty of the lake.
One of the highlights of our visit to Montenegro!

“Exceptional guide”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

While most of the boat owners around Virpazar are aggressive and commercial, this wonderful boat and his owner are only helped by the 12 year old niece Ivana to sell private tours on the wonderful Skadar Lake.
It's absolutely worthwhile to book a trip in advance with them (phone number available in the Lonely Planet guide), as they know the best spots on the lake, including hidden villages and ruined castles.
