What people are saying about Perast

Christian was amazing and his experience in the area was directly responsible for our great day. We took this tour in August 2021 - Croatia was very very crowded and very very hot (travel up 200% and an historic heat wave in Europe). As a result, some of the border crossings could have taken hours and the sites horribly crowded. Christian's ability and knowledge of the local roads, border crossings, parking, and peak times was critical in making our day comfortable, smooth and enjoyable. He was a knowledgeable fun guide and we really enjoyed meeting him. I highly recommend this tour and Christian!

Vladimir was a great guide with knowledge of everything and knew how to guide you to get the most of the experience. The scenery was fantastic. You should only watch out what boat is taking you to the lady of the rocks because everything is unregulated. Avoid taking the small boats even if you can bargain a cheaper price and get the regular service which is dependable. The border can also be busy and there is no way of knowing how much time it will take you to cross but our guide was really good in using the best routes possible.

This was the first of two days with the same company. The tour itself is very interesting, you get to see different place and you drive along the beautiful bays around Kotor. Even a boat ride to a nice little island is included. What made the tours so special was the remarkable knowledge about history of Montenegro of our guide Nicola, you told us so many things about the area so that we did not have one bad moment. This company does everything to please its customers. We had a great time on a great tour.

Our driver was very knowledgeable and had a terrific personality. She made our trip to Kotor and Budva very enjoyable. A potentially long day became a memorable journey.

Our guide was very informative and nice. Got to see a lot and glad we went.
