2.5-hour sightseeing cruise to Our Lady of the Rocks and Perst from Kotor
Explore the ancient church and interesting museum on tiny island, Our Lady of the Rocks
Absorb the historical charm of Perst's Old Town during some relaxed free time
Found the boats location easily and then spent an hour wandering around the old town where the streets are really narrow in places, but plenty of shops and cafes. The trip was run very well with everything run to time. The length of time to the Lady of the Rocks and Perest was quite lengthy so the amount of time on shore was limited with little time to do much in particular. There was an opportunity to stay longer but we were due back on our cruise ship before we would have got back.
They departure on time and inform the tourists about everything. If I were they I would not allow kids under 8 to travel because the boat is crowded and it is very annoying to listen a baby's cry next to you for 30-35 mins. Perast is nothing special, you can drink a coffee in one of the restaurants and that's it.
Unfortunately, we were not able to go on this tour because we missed the first 2 days of our cruise due to flight delays. I tried to email the company to let them know that we were going to miss the tour because of circumstances that were out of our control and to see if we could get a refund or credit to go towards another tour on our trip, but I never even heard back from them. We were already very upset and disappointed because we were missing so much of our trip and Viator not even bothering to respond to us just added to our disappointment.
I was here for a day on a cruise and didn't have a lot of time to tour the area so I chose a boat tour.
Unfortunately much of what you see on this boat tour, you already see when arriving by cruise ship.
My advice, if you are coming from land, sure take this tour. If you are there as part of a cruise, skip this and do a bus tour or walking tour.
The tour begins in Kotor and is popular so you will be in good company amongst other visitors. The tour provides a summary of the locations visited although more information on places of interest in Perast would be useful. If you follow the 1st tour of the day, you will have an option to visit Perast for an additional 2 hours and take the next tour back to the Port of Kotor.
Tour was as advertised. Very punctual, left exactly on time and gave ample time to look around at the 2 stops -Lady of the Rocks and Perast. There was a short recorded commentary which was not expected. All in all an enjoyable two and a half hour trip around the bay.
