I picked a tour from this company because of the description, that we'd learn more about how Kotor lives and breathes, and our guide Nikola totally delivered! I really appreciated that. We took 3 tours in different cities along that coast line during our cruise, and this was the only one I can say we got a solid glimpse of the people and culture there. Thank you Nikola!

An educational and very filling couple of hours with Bogdan. He showed us around the old town while explaining Montenegrin culture and humour. There were several food and drink stops and altogether provided a full lunch. The krempati was a highlight. It felt more like a stroll with a new friend.

This was an exceptional tour and well worth the money. Rajan was incredibly knowedgable and personable. There was no question, however obscure, that he was unable to answer. I would definitely recommend this experience.

Obama was our guide and she was excellent. Talked about the history and her personal story of growing up and living in Kotor.

Miloš was a very experienced and thoughtful guide. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and highly recommend.
