Reviewer: Kim Taylor
Enjoyed the tour and it was easy to find the guide even though we were a little delayed getting off the ship due to tendering. I found out later I should've asked for an earlier tender since I had a private excursion! The guide was delightful and spoke perfect English. She shared info about the village, it's history, and some great folklore but also shared personal stories about education and growing up in Montenegro. Our Lady of the Rocks was very interesting and exceeded my expectations. I was intrigued by all the donated items, the artifacts, and the stories behind them. I was glad to have a guide because a large group arrived at the same time, but she expertly guided us around the lines and made sure we didn't get lost in the crowd. The town of Perast is very small, but delightful to visit and we had just enough free time before returning to the ship.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and personable. The ship arrived late due to fog from the previous night. The captain extended the stay in port. The down side was it got dark early and I think that cut the tour short.

Our guide was a young lady who lives locally. Very knowledgeable.The church was so interesting and beautiful, built by the local people with many artifacts. Our guide even got her mom's recipe for Peraska Cake for me. Kotor is a beautiful city in a beautiful country.

What a beautiful experience. Our guide Biljana made this tour come alive.  What a beautiful human inside and out, and her outgoing personality and genuine sweet demeanor added to our experience.  She gave us the history with the storytelling from someone who loves her home, showing such pride. We were both enchanted by her outgoing spirit. This tour allowed us to see the sites, taste the local food, and understand why we will choose to return. Our favorite experience was the hidden gem: Our Lady of the Rocks. This charming beauty brought me to tears. While each visitor will have a different experience with something so personal, my cousin and I were able to visit very early (thanks to this shore excursion) and have a more private experience with very few people in the church. So many stories to hear. So many emotions to experience. Just perfect. So grateful for this day!

We were met at the dock as promised by Andrea, our guide. She drove my friend and me to our destination, talking along the way about her country and city. A short boat ride took us to the 2 islands of the coast at Perrast, a highllight of the tour. Having our own guide was the BEST! She was fantastic! So glad we made these plans.
