We arrived in Kotor for a day from a cruise ship. There was a "hop on, hop off" bus promotor standing as we entered the square. As we did not have much time and a bus was leaving within 10 minutes we bought the tickets. The trip was wonderful. We stopped at a house which had been there in roman times and the renovation of the mosaics is magnificent. We were dropped off at another stop and spent a very pleasant times staring at the beautiful views. The bus ticket included a visit to the museum and from the first floor balcony were stunning views. The next bus picked us up and we arrived back in Kotor. Included in the price was a guided tour of Kotor. The guide was magnificent with lots of lovely stories and history. We decided not to climb to the monastery, especially when the guide told us that by next yeat there would be a chair lift. We will go back!

Went with Thompson's on the Majesty, back in October. The itinerary 'Adriatic Explorer' was perfect, all the ports were beautiful, but Montenegro was our favourite. Also visited Corfu, Koper, Venice, Split and Dubrovnik. The scenery was stunning, this itinerary is a 'must' for anyone wanting to 'do their own thing' as opposed to doing theexpensive organised trips. A cruise/area we would definitely recommend.

We were extrememely fortunate to be on a tour led by Milo Popovic two days ago while on a cruise stop in Kotor. Milo waited for the eight of us to get in on the tender then whisked us away in a van on a wonderful tour of this stunningly beautiful country. We first stopped at Perast, where we took the shuttle boat to the fascinating Our Lady of the Rock church. From there MIo took us to the resort city of Budva, providing commentary on the history of the region as we drove along and stopping at occasional overlooks to point out points of interest or provide photo opps. We explored Budva for about 45 minutes, but didn't have lunch there as Milo had another place in mind.

We drove along older roads through the mountains until we reached the remote and sublime Restoran Belveder, overlooking a large lake nestled among craggy peaks. The cheese and oil, ham, stewed lamb and potatoes -- all regional specialties -- were delicious, washed down with a nice Montenegran red wine. It was one of the most memorable meals we've had in ages.

We piled back into the van and Milo led us to Njegusi, his grandfather's village and one of the only agrarian spots in the rugged region. Along the way he pointed out German bunkers from WWII and historical tablets chronicling events of that war and its aftermath. He speaks English well and has an impressive command of the region's history. He is also a warm, generous and funny guide, and his tours are very reasonably priced. We'd committed for a six hour tour but he extended it to 7 1/4, getting us back to the port in ample time to make our departure.

Consider yourself lucky if he is available when you visit Kotor!!

We did an amazing tour with Milo Popovic of Kotor and the surrounding area in August 2014. He did everything he could to make our tour all inclusive even though our cruise ship didn't let us in until 4:00. Milo showed us all the sites, stopped along the way for scenic pictures and let us spend time in Budva. It was a wonderful tour in a very comfortable van.

Visited Kotor as part of our cruise through Adriatic and Aegean. Sailing up the inlet that leads to Kotor is lovely and the old walled town and fortress are very impressive. We took the time and made the effort to climb to the top of the fortress, scaling the steps and enjoying a great view of the harbor, bay and old town in the process. Worth the effort but have good shoes and requires good fitness level. The narrow street of the old town are a delight.

From East Coast of US with family of four including two kids (10 and 7) to Kotor Bay; didn't know what to expect but found heaven. The highlight was biking and kayaking the area with Goga and KBC. Born and raised in Kotor, Goga runs a terrific operation and can provide insights into the area like no one else.... We ventured by Kayak to Our Lady of The Rock church/island among many other local adventures. Loved it!

Arrived late from our cruise ship as the tender process was diabolical. Fortunately the cruise organisers turned up whilst we were waiting by the quayside. The speedboat was fab and the views on our way to the lady of the rock were amazing. The visit to the small island and church was very interesting and our guide was extremely informative and funny as well. The booking was made through trip advisor and the value for money was superb. Unfortunately can't remember the guides name. Well worth the visit.

I am normally not given to providing poor reviews but unfortunately have to in this case. We had organised a cycling and hiking tour for a group of friends prior to our arrival. The positives is that the ride around the Bay of Kotor is a stunning experience. We did a shorter version with a hike part way up a hill to get a great view. Very lovely.

Unfortunately the tour itself didn't match it. The bicycles that were provided had numerous problems from seats that came loose, to poor steering and incorrect settings. When this became apparent the boys at the start point didn't seem to have the correct equipment to undertaken simple tasks such as re-heighting seats and handle bars. By the halfway point through the trip only one of our group was comfortable with the bike they were riding.

Once underway we were led by local girl. Even now we wonder if she knew she was leading our group or if, every now and then, she wondered why these people were following her. It was apparent early on that part of our group was struggling with the ride that day (some of this due to heat and the condition of their bike) however the guide would never have known as she didn't check whether we were with her or not. She simply kept riding ahead, not looking around. We were often calling out to her to stop and allow the group to reform. We are not sure whether she was meant to explain anything about what we were seeing, what the history of the area was or any other tourist information but none was forthcoming. She was much more a pace setter for the group rather than a guide in any form.

We then did the hike which was nice. The downside being we were told by our guide that it was an easy hike, 40 minutes in total. This most probably wasn't a true reflection of the hike. It was fairly steep and took longer. The member of our group who was struggling with the cycling commenced the hike when told it was easy however decided it was best to stop part way up.

After the hike we had some sandwiches provided by a local on the waterfront and this was delightful.

We then headed back to the base. The guide seemed surprised that we didn't want the tour to end at a different location to where it commenced (we had driven to the shop and the proposed end point was several kilometres from there). Again we headed off, the guide meandering off in the distance. As we neared Kotor we had regrouped and then, without warning, she veered across the road when there was traffic coming and rode down the incorrect side of the road. If she had been on her own that would be ok but she was leading a group of 7 people of (now obviously) varying levels of capability and had chosen a small gap in the incoming traffic. We had to try and catch up while she continued to travel on the other side of the road. We then followed her onto the pavement where she swerved between people (mainly elderly people from the visiting cruise ships) and again left us behind. It left our group considering that this part of the ride had not been conducted with any regard to road safety (or ours or others safety for that matter).

When we returned back to the store we stood around while a group of younger (we think) staff talked amongst themselves. After some time we interrupted and they said they weren't sure what the cost was. As the tour was expensive we paid them but did take a small discount out of the price to allow for what was appalling and dangerous service.

As this was the first thing we had done in Kotor it was a disappointing introductory experience. Until the quality of staff and equipment is improved there is no way that it could be recommended. You would be better just to get a bike and tour on your own.

This sounded like such a wonderful trip, but to say it was disappointing is an understatement.
1. This is not a tour, it's a boat ride across the bay to a little restaurant
2. There is no explanation on how to prepare mussels Montenegrin style, we had to ask and we're just shown mussels being put on a BBQ
3. No fish offered at all, which was not good as my husband doesn't like mussels, but likes fish
4. Mussels are not eat all you can, our plates were cleared away and we had to ask for more.
5. We were not offered the opportunity to fish as advertised
6. The "tour" guide does not explain anything at all, he just sits around

The mussels were delicious, we would highly recommend visiting the restaurant, but do it under your own steam, you will save a LOT of money. The restaurant is called Plantaza Skoljki.
