An Excellent Choice for Port of Kotor

This was a fun and very interesting tour to a small town and historic church built on an island. We learned the history of Montenegro and how committed the people are in protecting their natural resources. The small church also serves as a museum and is SO interesting to visit. The story of the church itself is fascinating and the artifacts could keep you there for hours. Highly recommend!

This was an excellent tour. Very interesting and our tour guide was very informative. My husband left his glasses in the transport automobile and the guide caught us before we left the dock to return the glasses. That was not an easy task with all the traffic in the area. We highly recommend this tour.

This was an excellent trip with a very informed guide filling us in on all the history of the surrounding building and landscape but also the history of the political climate. Very interesting and we were the only 2 on the tour so very focused.

Jovanna our tour guide kept us all engaged with her knowledge of past and current history of Montenegro. We traveled to Perast in a clean/air conditioned mini van with a very safe driver. The road along the coast is a lovely drive, and Perast is a fun walkable city. We had wonderful snack and coffee in a local cafe along the water. We also visited the Lady of the Rocks church, which is well laid out and has fantastic views of the coast line. Super tour, highly recommend.
