Not only was the tour wonderfully informative with facts, figures and history giving a great outline for the past few thousand years in Kotor, but our guide coloured in the lines with legends, stories, and neighbourhood news. Walking around the Old Town now is even more vibrant with our new nuggets of knowledge.

this was the first time we used Get Your Guide and was very pleased to say we enjoyed it immensely. Since we were travelling as a group of 10 we opted for the private tour. For a couple euros extra it was well worth it.

‘Rad’, our tour guide, was amazing! Gave not only the historical information but lots of lovely cultural/personal nuggets too. A nice short walk in a beautiful town. Would recommend!

The guide was very flexible when our ship arrived late in port. He was also very knowledgeable and friendly. Would recommend

Very interesting and informative, guide was excellent!
