My friends and I stopped at Kotor as part of our cruise. None of the shore excursions offered by the cruise interested us, but we were excited to go on this Viator tour. And it was the best one out of all our cruises. We met up with Slovko in a clean and comfortable car. He is very knoweldgeable, warm, hospitable and professional. He first drove us to Perast (he was giving us great information about this history of Kotor during this drive). We immediately got on a boat to the Lady of the Rocks where we "cut the line" to have a private tour of the church. After that we arrived back in Perast where we learned more about this history and explored the area. We were getting a little hungry so Slovko immediate coordinated a timely sit down in front of the water where we had amazing local desserts and wines. We got to relax and have a snack (this was very kind and accommodating of him). Afterwards we went back to Kotor and toured Old Town Kotor with its rick history and Slovko brought us back to our port cruise with time to spare. He was very flexible, knowledgeable and respectful of our time. Plus it was a private tour which made the experience even better. Personally I can say that Perast and Kotor are one of the most beautiful places we have ever gone. Thank you Slovko for a phenomenal experience!
My husband & I were only in Montenegro as a cruise stop for one day, and this tour was the best way to make the most of our time there. Our local guide, Slovko, listened to exactly what our interests and hopes for the day were, and walking around with him was like touring with a friend. We saw so much in a short amount of time without ever feeling exhausted, and Slovko timed our movements so adeptly that we never ran into large crowds. When traffic blocked a street in Perast, thereby preventing our access road back to Montenegro, Slovko ushered us to a beachside restaurant and watched our items while we took a wonderful dip in the sea- perfection! From all of our cruise's planned stops, Montenegro was the destination we knew the least about, and it ended up being our favorite because of this fantastic tour. We are SO glad we did this tour and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to soak up the beautiful Montenegro.
Slobodan arrived early and provided our group of 8 (ranging in age from 12 to 80) an EXCELLENT experience in Kotor. He was very well versed in the history of the old city of Kotor as well as Perast. As a long-time resident, he provided the local perspective in addition to the facts. Slobodan was also a well-known member of the community as many of the local vendors would greet him and he even leveraged his connections to allow us to use the bathroom at a restaurant where we would otherwise have had to pay! This was our best tour during our Med cruise, by far.
Our tour guide picked us up from our cruise and was very informational. He gave us lots of history of Montenegro as well as Perast and Kotor. I would definitely recommend this as it is flexible for your family.
I booked this private tour instead of buying a group tour from the cruiseline. It cost much less and we had a superior experience. We had a wonderful guide named Nobojsca (Shawn), who was well-spoken and very informed. Becuase we were a small group, he was able to take us nimbly through all the sights, while the large tour groups were laboring to stay together. After a tour of the town, we had a private Mercedes minivan with a driver to take us to and from Perast. On the boat ride to Our Lady of the Rocks, we even had the best seats on the bow. This experience was 100% First Class.
Our tour guide was amazing...one of the best tours we have had. She was knowledgeable, personable and did not try to bore us with useless details. She provided a nice history of the area and would highly recommend her. Just wish I could remember her name since it has been several months since the tour.
