What people are saying about Kotor, Montenegro

A successful trip from start to finish. We started on time and drove to the specified stations with the speedboat. Our captain Alex took care of everything and quickly got jackets for all six participants, as it was getting a bit cold due to the early time and season. At each stop there was information from Alex and on the way back we were also able to walk through Perast for a short 10 minutes to see the city, since none of us wanted to take the bathing stop and there was some time left. We can only recommend the activity!

Extremely friendly and decisive staff, we were traveling on a cruise ship and I arrived late at the port, even so they respected our reservation and modified our tour to get to know the beautiful Kotor I highly recommend this provider
