My family and I had an amazing time on this tour. Our tour guide, Liset, met us right outside the port terminal carrying a sign with my name. We met the driver in the parking lot and jumped right into the black Mercedes minivan to begin the tour. Liset, spoke great English and had a wide knowledge of the country and the sites we visited. During our stop in Njegusi, the driver was able to arrange a visit to a pork smokehouse owned by a street merchant. We sampled the local ham, cheese, and liquor and felt like local Montenegrins. After this we stopped in Cetinje to see the museum of King Nikola and the monastery. On our way out of the town, we got some local coffee (similar to Turkish coffee in that you have to avoid the sediments). After visiting Cetinje, we passed through the ritzy beach town of Budva, which looked like it would be a great place to visit at night. As we finished our tour, we had to hurry to catch our cruise ship. Our driver understood our urgency and got us back to the dock in Kotor with enough time to get back to the ship. Overall, this tour was a great way to spend a afternoon in Kotor and I would highly recommend this company to anyone.

We hired a car and picked Liset up over the border (no-fuss border, BTW) and she guided us around for about 12 hours and fitted in more than you could reasonably expect - the full rim of Bay of Kotor, including Perast and a ferry out to the Lady of the Rocks, Kotor itself (mind-blowing), the Mausoleum in the mountains above Kotor where you can see 5 countries (Albania, Bosnia, Croatia, Serbia and Italy) - what a spectacular ascent, the ancient capital (Cetinje), the coast (Budva, its old town, Sveti Stefan) and a ferry ride across the Bay. It's about 300km if you see everything, and we were back in Dubrovnilk for a 9pm dinner at Dubrovnik Restaurant (very good for reference).
Liset is very smart, articulate and knowledgeable, and the first person to give us a relatively non-partisan overview of the conflicts in the area from the 1980s. She's also delightful, and you'll have a fun day with her.

So much to see in Kotor, so little time! We had a fabulous day on our tour but wish we had more time. This country is so beautiful that it deserves an extended stay. We arrived via cruise ship and were met at the pier. We went by car to Perast where we boarded a small boat to Our Lady of the Rocks, a small island worth visiting. We saw the new Port Montenegro (mini Monaco), then drove past Budva (with a little ferry ride thrown in) to view Sveti Stefan island from the road, then went back to Budva and walked around the town for a short time before heading back to Kotor. I would recommend skipping the trip out to Sveti Stefan and Budva if you are short on time like we were. I wish we had stayed and spent more time exploring Kotor, but this gives us a great reason to return! Thank you for setting up our tour, Liset! Our guide and driver were fabulous. We will schedule with you again next time we visit!

On a cruise through the Adriatic we were going to land in Kotor . After a few fast and nice emails with Liset who was at the time away herself because it was winter in Montenegro , I decided on a 5 hour tour to Budva , Sveti Stefan and the old town of Kotor so I formed a group of 16 on Cruise Critic with fellow passengers .
We were met at the port by Liset ( who specially came down to wish me a Happy Birtday on that day ) and our guide for the day Jelena . We were soon on our way in a comfortable mini bus and had some very good commentary from Jelena about this area , the history and daily life in Montenegro . Jelena is a very nice lady very good in English and she had a lot of nice stories and facts to tell us . We first visited Sveti Stefan for a nice photo stop and went than for a nice walking tour through the old town of Budva .
The pace of our tour was very relaxed and we had some time for a coffee and some nice local treats from the bakery . Jelena than took us back to Kotor and gave us a nice walking tour through this beautiful walled city , she told us about the history , the different families walked us through the churches and musea .
This really has wetted my appetite to see more of this beautiful country of Montenegro and of course I will contact Liset first to have another wonderful tour with her .
Thank you Jelena and Liset . A great time was had by all !

Montenegro is a true Gem! If you would like to truly see Montenegro Liset will not disappoint you. We visited Kotor-Perast -Our Lady of the Rocks-Porto Montenegro- Sveti Stefan -Budva. This is far more than you will ever see on any of the ship tours. Liset is very knowledgeable of the area, culture and history. We did see a lot but never felt rushed. A bonus for us was that she speaks Spanish too! Montenegro was truly a highlight of our two weeks in Europe. This is a beautiful, clean, safe and relaxed location worthy of an extended stay.
