Good tour, worth doing
We loved this tour of Perast because it took us in a small group to a less advertised part of Montenegro that kept us in thrall. Tour group easy to find. Commentary was fair and not over the top. Learnt all we needed to know. Loved the boat trip to the island with the church. Found Perast town magical. Full of tourists but still alive and fun-filled.

I felt in love with Kotor, Montenegro thanks to this tour and Jovanna, our tour guide. When we arrived at 3:00pm, Jovanna was waiting for my boyfriend and I with a sign with our names in the port. We were the only two with her, so the tour was private. Jovanna and the driver took us to Perast, is about 20 min from Kotor. I went to the Lady of the Rock, and some free time in the town. It was lovely. Jovanna was very informative, polite and helpful. I would definitely recommend this tour to everyone. Ask to be with Jovanna as tour guide.

We enjoyed our visit to this charming village. It's quite small and compact but the trip out to the island was so interesting. I can say I wouldn't try going to the island and church on my own as there were quite a few people in line and poor signage. Our guide knew exactly where to take us to gain entrance and provided wonderful anecdotal insights about the local culture and all the fascinating "donations" lining the walls and ceilings of the church. It was a definite plus to have a local guide! The tenders were running a little behind but the guide was there waiting right at the gate.

The town of Perast is no longer than 1 kilometre long. This tiny, quaint village is surrounded by mountainous terrain. Our informative guide walked us through the town pointing out places of interest and history. We then took a short boat ride to the Church located on a man-made named for the 'Lady of the Rocks', who protects those on the water. Over the years, this Church Church has been given many gifts from people all over the world and is full of relics, artwork and stories. After arriving back on shore, we were given some time to explore the rest of the town. My husband and I found the trip fascinating.
