What people are saying about Perast
This was a really enjoyable way to experience Kotor. The boat was a 5 minute walk from our cruise port and they were very friendly to us when we checked in. We went on a speed boat for about 3 hours. The boat went very fast and we were bumping on the front of the boat with loud music, it was fun! Our tour guide, Eno, was superb! He was informative, and went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable. He gave us all water and made sure everyone was safe and happy on the boat. We first went to these amazing blue caves where we got to swim for about 30 minutes. (We heard later that some people booking a similar tour through the cruise ship were not able to swim). After this we stopped at a cave where world war 2 submarines were hidden (this was a 5 minute stop only, which was a good amount of time since it wasn’t too much to see), and then stopped for about 20-30 minutes at the lady of the rocks which is a neat olden church. Loved this trip! Eno was absolutely incredible!!!
PROS: - The pickup was on time and the coach was comfortable. Our local Montenegrin guide Slavica was excellent; she was extremely knowledgeable, and explained everything patiently and thoroughly at Our Lady of the Rocks and Kotor. - The sights were beautiful; the scenery in Montenegro is unlike any we've seen. CONS: - Our Croatian tour guide (who was in charge while we were inside the coach) Marinara was constantly on edge and rushed, and did not allow us to have a relaxed tour at all. She was very loudly chatting with the coach driver constantly—literally NON-STOP throughout the several hours we spent in the coach, both to and from—and this made it impossible for any of us to relax and enjoy. On the way back, everyone was tired and wanted to take a nap before we reached Dubrovnik, but Marinara's incessant loud talking made that impossible. Also, whenever we asked her for any information, she did not reply properly. - The coach driver didn't drive smoothly at all.
The Tour was lovely. The driver picked us up promptly and we were driven to the first of stop in Perast, then we meet our guide who took us on a boat ride across to the island with a church and Museum (Our Lady of the Rocks). We then proceeded on Boat to Kotor Town and our guide gave use a brief tour before we had a few hours to explore the town. Our guide was friendly and helpful and very very chatty. We were then picked up by the driver and when we reached the border check point it took two hours. This was no fault of the driver just politics and lazy officials so can't fault this tour. Good to see another country and would recommend but make sure you have plenty of time to get back in case you get stuck at the border like us.
I can’t even begin to rate this Tour Group. I would give them 12/15 stars for how they handled our situation. My daughter sprained her ankle on the cruise ship. We get to the port, I call and they worked hard to work with our problem. The owner actually picked her up on his motorcycle to accommodate her injury.. what tour company would have done that?? The boat ride was also great, Eno was great In helping my daughter on the trip. These owners/operators care about their customers.. I wouldn’t use use any other group. Trust me you will not regret it. Try them.
It was a long day, but definitely worth it. It was an amazing tour. Out tourguide Luka was very nice. He told us a lot about the the stops and Montenegro. Furthermore, besides him being very professional, he was also really friendly and the group laughed a lot. So, if you want to have an idea about the different environments in Montenegro, book this tour. 430+ km in a full day (our pick up in Tivat was at 06:45h and our drop off in Tivat around 22:30h).
