Beautiful trip - a bit long though. I can’t recall the name of the boat captain (tall, slim and blonde) Great friendly one. You’ll enjoy the submarine hideout and blue cave swim. Sarah is a friendly person too! You’ll meet her on the tour stand booth.
Was a great trip such a stunning place and we went to interesting stops. It was a bit longer than expected but that was fine for me. It was a lovely sunny day and the staff were helpful and friendly. I would recommend
Swimming near the cave had something magical: the coastline by boat was an excellent way to make the most out of it. Note : think of bringing cash in order to visit the inside of the lady of the rock.
Excellent guide and very fun trip to do while you’re in Kotor!
It was a really enjoyable trip and a good organizing. Thanks.
