What people are saying about Perast
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.
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).
It was a long day but we enjoyed visiting the different regions of the country and the National Park. Our guide, Miloc (excuse spelling) was very knowledgeable and kept us entertained. We booked online and a query we had regarding pick up location was answered quickly.
No guidance at Lady of the Rock site. There is a fee to get it, crowds, and wait time. Boat ride is very rough and we were stuck in the front in pouring rain. Those in back had cover. Raincoats were provided. Submarine pens were interesting.
