Tatijana's in depth knowledge of Kotor, it's history, evolution and the challenges that it faced throughout an ever changing challenging political environment was apparent. She is focused on presenting the story of Kotor it's history and it's present. She painted the picture of Kotor's decline as a maritime power to it's current state of a minimal maritime presence. While her knowledge is substantial and her effort is professional it would be more effective if delivered in a less strident manner.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Richard, Thank you very much for your insight. I will do my best to improve in direction you suggested. Wish you many pleasant tours in future, Tatjana

Tatjana provided an excellent experience for us touring old Kotor. She had a great deal of historical context - past and present about Kotor and Montenegro in general. As opposed to a ship's tour, we went at our pace, where we wanted. We had a great lunch at Hotel Conte on our way to Perast. We took a small boat to Our Lady of the Rocks on a man-made islet. I am pleased that we booked this tour with Tatjana and I recommend her highly. She will customize a tour based on your interests and abilities.

This tour was a truely amazing experience for my wife and I. We were able to learn about the incredible history of Kotor and see some of the many the religious icons of this region. We both loved the wine tasting in a vineyard with one of the best views we have seen overlooking the sea and the mountains while enjoying exquisite wine. We would definitely do this tour again and will be sure to recommend it to anybody in the area.

Manuel LopezHilton Head Island, SC, United States
The guide, Tatjana was late meeting us at the port..Another guide waiting for his guests was good enough to call our "late" guide and received, according to him, a very negative response "Why you calling me - mind your own business..Kotor is a great place to visit, but we did not have a good feeling about our guide..
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Lopez, I truly thank you for your openness and readiness to spend your time to give me feedback about things you were not satisfied with. I can assure you that your review will contribute to my future efforts and improve quality of my work. With gratitude and respect, Tatjana
Sarah HaydenUnited States
Wonderful day. Very informative and easy. Would absolutely book with Tatjana again.
Bob SklarUnited States
Excellent guide. Very knowledgable and pleasant.
Antonio AriasUnited States
Tatjana was a very good an friendly guide and was fluent in English. She showed us Prevast and Kotor in the limited amount of time we were there. After we compared notes with the other cruise travelers we realized that we were able to accomplish much more on this private tour. We fully recommend her.
Tatjana's knowledge and love of her country brought to life the complex history and current life of Kotor and Perast - a spectacularly beautiful area of Montenegro. Tatjana adjusted her tour to suit our needs and I can highly recommend Tatjana as a guide to Kotor. Judith M.I
Robert SapetaUnited States
Tatjana extremely knowledgeable about the town of Kotor as well as Montenegro... Also, Tatjana seemed to be current about Local customs, activities and current events... Tatjana was very personable and pleasant...I would highly recommend her as a Tour Guide for Kotor and I would look forward to spending time with her during our next visit to Kotor...
Lawrence StricklandUnited States
Tatjana was a last minute replacement for another guide which put her in a really bad situation. To make matters worse, the city decided that it was a great time to start construction on many roads the same day we were there. Unfortunately between the poor road conditions and our mobility problems, we did not get to see or experience as much as we had hoped. However, Tatjana was very kind and tried her best given the difficulty of the situation. We would definitely recommend Tatjana.
Dale StarkesUnited States
Tatjana did a great job introducing us to Montenegro. She is a member of the town council in Kotor and we met the Mayor of the town who let us tour the town hall and see the council chambers. She made the history of Kotor come alive. The tour included a trip to a mussel and oyster farm. The ladies and I learned to shuck oysters. We got to see how the farm works and help reseed the one mussel bed. The beach area was not the best BUT the overall experience was fabulous. Highly recommended.
Carmine CostantiniUnited States
Very nice tour,plenty of info and such a beautiful city. Guide took the time to show us the high points with our limited time and got us thru the lines which allowed more time to see more of the area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words, it was a pleasure to be on a tour wit you! Kind regards from Kotor!

Tatjana is absolutely the BEST Tour Guide! Amazing. Incredible. Fabulous. Extraordinary. Wonderful. Highly Recommended. She made our visit. She was knowledgeable, flexible, fun, energetic. It was obvious she really enjoys her job and has pride in showing and telling about her country. She was the best tour guide we ever had, and we've hired many over the years.

On time very knowledgeable. English was very good. Pleasant informative day.
Jo Ann HardyUnited States
Tatjana is a great guide. She gave us a lot of information about Preast and the surrounding area during our tours. She gave us some great advice on a lunch spot. The information about Kotor and the history of the area was very interesting.
John BrumbaughSouth Miami, FL, United States
Tatiana is a lively, engaging guide that provides an entertaining and thorough adventure. Her personal stories added a fun element to our day.
Ann H.INDIAN, United States
Tatjana was very informative when it came to the history and politics of the area. She gave us a wonderful tour and put her customers first when there was an incident with her car. Her car mirror bumped another's on a very narrow, winding road. Very minor, but the other driver was upset. She immediately called a taxi to return us to our ship while she handled it. Could not have been nicer or more professional in taking care of the situation.
Tatjana was an excellent guide for the four of us - knowledgeable, friendly and ready to adapt the tour to meet our interests. Although the price was more than what we would have paid for one of the cruise ship's excursions, we saw so much more and moved far more efficiently. Tatjana took us to a lovely seaside restaurant for our lunch, well away from the tourist centre.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Tatjana as our host. She was extremely polite and gave us a lot of historical information about Montenegro. The scenery is stunning and we highly recommend Tatjana.
Jane EvansUnited States
In all my travels, I have never met anyone as passionate about her city as Tatjana. She picked us up promptly and took us first to Perast. The coastal drive was breathtaking! She was so knowledgeable and seemed to know everyone we met along the way. Then, she spent time taking us through Kotor. I highly recommend her, without hesitation.
Dr Susan Rae JensenUnited States
She went above and beyond service for our tour of Kotor and Perast with personal and factual information and sensitive to our pace and spent extra time with us to assure that we had a good experience in a short amount of time while in port on a cruise.
Awesome guide and tour. Group of 20 friends loved our day with Tatjana. So knowledgeable and passionate about her country. She helped us design a great itinerary that divided our time between the town/museum and a boat trip to Our Lady of Rock church and Perast. The boat captains and the guide at the church were terrific as well. Tatjana even helped us arrange an evening dinner at a local restaurant by the sea, with music. We ended up dancing in the street and all agreed:MAGICAL DAY! Thanks, Tatjana.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ramona, thank you for this, it was my pleasure to be with your group! I can assure you that I both helped you learn about my country and learn about you and your circumstances. Sharing is great!
Sharon RaseyUnited States
Selma ReedUnited States
Tatjana provided us with a wonderful experience in Kotor. She met us at our ship just as promised, & whisked us to a private boat to travel to the mussel farm where we observed the interesting collection of mussels and oysters. Our delicious lunch was followed by escorted trips to Our Lady of the Rock & inside the walls of the old city. Tatjana was knowledgeable, friendly, attentive to my 92-year old mother, and provided us with wonderful explanations of Kotor's history. Highly recommend!
Marilyn ClarkUnited States
Tatjana was a wonderful guide, very informative in very good English. Highly recommend!
Justin DanielsUnited Kingdom
Tatjana is an expert guide. We got so much more than expected. We learned so much, and nothing was too much trouble. By far the best tour on our cruise and a beuatiful country. Thanks Tatjana :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words! Hope to see you soon over a coffee we talked about :)
Tiffany LoweryUnited States
My family of 4 older children and my husband and myself absolutely loved our tour of Montenegro with Tatjana!! She shows you all the wonderful sights of the city. But the best part is the private speedboat tour and the mussel farm! Being on the mussel farm and sampling fresh mussels was hands-down the favorite experience of my 4 teenagers!! Tatjana was an absolutely wonderful guide and I would highly recommend this tour!! Thank you, Tatjana, for such a fun experience in your beautiful country!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tiffany, thank you so much for your feedback, it is never to late to hear nice words :) When the company is good, the fun is insured. Hope to see you and your family again!
Robert SmithAvon Lake, OH, United States
Guide was bell informed. She went into great depth with subjects. Our ages were 11 to 72 and she needed to make tour more interesting for younger in groups. Overall I would recommend her.

Anthony DilevaUnited States
Tatiana is very nice, informed, and prepared. Great time
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much! I hope this is the beginning of your arrivals in Kotor!
Tatjana and the boat captain were both excellent. Tatjiana was very knowledgeable about the history and the area. We really enjoyed our boat tour. Thankyou
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lori, I am glad to hear you enjoyed and left Montenegro satisfied. Hope sometimes our paths will cross again. Thank you for you feedback!
Tatjana spent one full day with us at Kotor Bay. Being a local person she picked the most important sights and gave all the detailed information we asked about. No matter if it was about geography, history, culture or daily life - it could not be better!
Nancy AylingUnited States
Tatjana provided us with a wonderful experience in Old Town Kotor and Perast from our pre-tour communication to our final moments at sunset on the shore of the Bay of Kotor. She was knowledgeable, flexible, attentive to our needs and wishes, and because she was a local, she could answer our questions about current culture and politics with authority. We had a rich and enjoyable day because Tatjana was our guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nancy, Thank you so much for you feedback. It was my pleasure! I hope your week in Florence will be equally enjoyable. Write to you soon, Tatjana
Very friendly and knowledgeable.
Marjorie StanfordUnited States
Tatjana helped us to understand how Montenegro was affected by the changes in the former Yugoslavian Republic,and how it evolved to where they are now. Budva was a great example of the impact of growth, and the charming town of Perast and boat ride to "Our Lady of the Rocks Church" was definitely a highlight. Our tour of Kotor was wonderful-wish we could have spent more time. It's always more meaningful when a local guide shares their passion for their beautiful country.
Don HolmUnited States
Tatjana was a wonderful guide, good english and lots of knowledge to share. Walking through the entrance to the old city into an ancient city is so incredible, then a motor boat ride to Our Lady of the Rock was a treat but the best part was when we visited the mussel farm, sitting at a covered picnic table with fresh steamed mussels, bread and wine. And then we went swimming in the Adriatic. I will remember that day for ever. Thank you Tatjana
Our guide Tatjana had an amazing knowledge of Kotor and Montenegro in general. She took us to see the very picturesque Sveti Stefan, Budva old town, Perast, then Kotor. We highly recommend Tatjana and Tours by Locals - a very professional company. We had no trouble meeting up with Tatjana on the wharf when our ship arrived in Kotor, and felt very well looked after.
Sherry WadeUnited States
Tatiana was an interesting and engaging guide. We particularly enjoyed the boat she had engaged for us to visit Our Lady of the Rocks church. Lunch on a shaded pier at the mussel farm was a great experience and very tasty. There were only four tables on the pier where the mussels are steamed on a small grill and served with bread and local wine.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback, I appreciate it! I am glad you enjoyed your day in Kotor.
Amy GordonUnited States
Tatjana in Kotor - very knowledgeable, very pleasant, willing to adjust to our requests.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Amy, I am glad I managed to meet your needs. Thank you!

Steven WattsNoosaville, QLD, Australia
In short, excellent. Tatjana was highly informative across a very wide range of subjects, flexible and friendly. Her English was very good (fluent). We had a fantastic day and would recommend her without hesitation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Steven, thank you very much! The day was far beyond average for me, as well!
Julie IacobelliUnited States
Kotor is a beautiful place and a tour with Tatijana makes it even more special. Our walking tour of the Old Town gave us great history and ability to experience this special place. A speed boat took the 6 of us to Our Lady of the Rock Church, another great experience. The final part of the tour, swimming and mussels on a private pier was the highlight. We had two hours to swim, eat fresh-caught mussels accompanied by bread and local wine and enjoy the quiet of the pier with the owner. You'll love it!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Julie, good to hear from you! I am flattered by your words and I promise next time you visit Kotor and Montenegro it will be even better! Kind regards to you and Bruce and your friends from me!
Debbie NelsonUnited States
I recently returned from 3 weeks in Europe and my mom and I had the pleasure of Tatjana's company and expertise during our day in Kotor, Montenegro. Tatjana is very knowledgeable of her country's and Kotor's history and she is a very passionate person about life in general. She was the perfect guide for the 2 of us and we're grateful to have been able to book her for our trip.
Martin Buch LarsenDenmark
Tatiana was our enthusiastic history guide for 2 days and she knows just about everything about every door, every church and every little statue throughout Montenegro. She can talk for days about every little detail! great if you're up for a information injection. Nostalgic, knowledgable and flexible, she also did her best to suit our wishes and needs as we made several changes during our visit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Martin, It was good to have the group as yours in Montenegro, and I am glad to hear that the 2 days tour we had through Montenegro satisfied your needs. I hope to have the chance to meet you guys again!
Colleen H.United States
I was only in Kotor for the day as I came in via a cruise. As I wanted to see & learn as much as possible, I arranged beforehand for a one-on-one tour with Tatjana. She met me exactly at the time & place arranged. During the tour it became obvious that she's intelligent, well-informed & her historical knowledge & English are excellent. She showed a genuine love for her city & country which made the tour even more enjoyable & memorable. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great tour of Kotor!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Colleen, It was a pleasure to have you in Kotor and I still regret the rain we had. Hope that everything you saw will bring you in Kotor again during one of your travellings, and that we will meet again! Thanks!
Judy DrownUnited States
We took a tour of Kotor, Montenegro on Wednesday, October 2nd. Our guide was Tatjana C. She provided us with a great experience. She brought the history of Kotor alive for us from its earliest days to the present time. Not only was she very knowledgeable, but she also made sure each person in the group felt included and that their needs were met. Definitely five stars. Judy and Rick Drown
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Judy, I am glad you left Kotor satisfied, and as I remember, with the desire to come again! It was my pleasure to be with the group interested and responsive as yours, and hopefully, our roads will cross again. Thank you!
