Our Lady of the Rocks and Kotor were great but expected more from the Roman mosaics. Very knowledgeable and local guides. Definitely recommended.
I love the trip our tour guide Ivana was fabulous as wells as our driver. Our Lady of the Rock Island is a phenomenal experience and so beautiful with some really interesting and unique artwork and artifacts from sea travelers. And Kotor is really worth a visit and we enjoyed our local tour guide Alexander's walk around the walled town. Great trip well worth going on the Ancient tour.
A fabulous trip; the guides were excellent and very friendly. Bus pick up was on time and we were advised of the situation at every stage especially at the border crossing.
Wonderful!! the tour guide was really excellent!! could not ask for more.
Breathtaking scenery a must do. Our tour guide was full of information and entertaining.we were well taken care of. The journey was long but beautiful.Would do it again.
Fantastic trip,excellent driver and brilliant tour guide best trip ever .
The guide was knowlegeable, spoke very good English and had a sense of humor to boot. The drive there was beautiful, and the sites were very interesting. I only wish there was more time to climb the steps in Kotor, but it was only a one day trip. I highly recommend this excursion.
Beautiful scenery - good day out. Passports required, but not told in advance.
This tour was another excellent tour. We enjoyed the comfort of the coach as it was a long day, and the tour guide was most informative and helpful. A thoroughly enjoyable tour.
A beautiful day. We were met outside Pile Gate at the Hotel imperial Hilton near the garage and transported to the large coach. We had a well informed tour guide who entertained us all day by being comical and interesting with his knowledge of Croatia as well as Montenegro. The trip went by Cavtat, Cilipi and Konavle Valley and on to the Bay of Kotor, which was vast. Here after a quick tour of some Roman mosiacs at Risan. We caught a boat over to the man made island and the Church "Our Lady of the Rocks" where a local tour guide from Perast, the quiet village from which we departed on the boat, explained the church, how and why the island was built and about the local sea captains. Very interesting talk and we wandered around this small island taking photos across the lake to the huge backdrop of mountains. I managed to capture a huge cruise ship on the bay with a local fisherman in his small craft together...the big and the small. Kotor the town also on the water, has high 4.5 km walls and a fort on the hill above.Here we also had an well informed and funny guide walk us through the stari grad,(old town). Then after we had a bit of a wander around, we had time to enjoy a lovely meal on a piazza. This was a day tour that I will remember for ages to come.
I highly recommend this trip. The mosaics at Risan are interesting; it's fun to be in the middle of a lake surrounded by mountains; and Kotor is fabulous. That's the problem, really. A day trip (including wasted hours at the border) is not really enough time, and Kotor, in particular is short-changed. [And another thing! I'd hate to be there when a cruise ship's in town.] The Kotor guide is interesting, but I suggest abandoning the party and wandering about by yourself. You won't get lost, and you will still see all the good stuff. You might even manage to climb higher than the church.
Too rushed, landed in Kotor which is really interesting but tour guide was talking to us at 1.50 pm in middle of 32 degree heat when people had travelled since 8 with 1 toilet break and no lunch. Personally the roman remains could have been avoided and the fast track ferry could possibly have went to Kotor first and then did the our lady of the rocks and perast tour which was reallly good. The tour needs to consider travellers leaving so early and having ample breaks. The tour guide from kotor was quite politically minded, no problems with having a view but steered towards old Yugoslavia being good and maybe the new independance is not as great, Not really relevant to hear his opinion to a group.
A long day trip with many, many hotel pick ups and on a rainy day for us. The road is slow and to be honest the Roman Mosaics at Risan are not particularly spectacular. Kotor is beautiful but the time there was too short and with the complication of rain. quite disappointing. Lunch had to be fitted in to the relatively brief stop and the local guide really did spend too much time talking in what was supposed to be a brief overview. In hindsight we should probably have taken the alternative trip which takes in Budvar rather than Risan. Both tours also take in the Church of St George off Perast, well worth seeing. A long trip back dropping off yet again at lots of hotels. We felt that there were just too many people on the tour which was a full bus load coming from far and wide around Dubrovnik.
