Our group of six highly recommends Gojko as he was personable, professional and extremely knowledgeable. He guided us in Kotor, Cetinje and surrounding areas with care and making sure he answered all our questions not only of Montenegro but other countries as well. We highly recommends Gojko.
Tim SantanaUnited States
We spent a great day with Gojko touring Kotor and the Montenegro countryside. He took us to some of the most scenic areas we have ever been to anywhere. He has a great knowledge of the history and lifestyle of Montenegro. Our lunch on the way back to Kotor was amazing. I would certainly use Gojko again and would recommend him to anyone who wants an outstanding tour of Kotor and the surrounding area.
Jill BauerFernandina Beach, FL, United States
We were able to see both old and new on this tour. Gojko gave us a comprehensive history of Montenegro while showing us the key sights. There is often so much information to absorb, but Gojko was organized and more than able to answer all of our questions. His recommendation for lunch was delightful!
Vernon OlsonUnited States
Gojko was very knowledgeable about current and historical information about Kotor. We had a very enjoyable tour of the area. Unfortunately, our ship cut the shore time by four hours due to expected bad weather so we had to truncate our tour. In the few hours we had, Gojko was able to give us a feeling for the spirit of Kotor. Would definitely recommend using this guide again.
Penny N.United States
My husband and I have used Tours By Locals many times and Gojko was one of the best tour guides we have used. He was very interesting, knowledgeable, and friendly. His English is perfect. I highly recommend his services.
Linda K.United States
This was an wonderful tour! Gojko made the overwhelming scenery of Kotor Bay come alive with his stories of the history and culture of Montenegro. He was an excellent conversationalist and we learned much from him. The olive oil mill in Tici was truly special. The donkeys, the history of olive oil production and modern techniques were fascinating, The lunch served by the Moric family was an amazing spread of farm grown food and local wine. This tour proved everything we hoped it would be! Thanks, Gojko!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Linda for the kind words. I would like to see you all in Montenegro again. There's a lot more to see and experience. All the best, Gojko
Greg GarrettUnited States
Gojko is very knowledgeable and personable. We had a great day touring Kotor, Perast, and Our lady of the Rocks. It was like having a friend showing us the sights
Gojko is a very nice and knowledgable guide. My friend and I departed on different days, even with such a difficult schedule, Gojko still managed to take us to all of the places on our itinerary without wasting too much time. He is very patient in taking pictures for me and my friend, for which we feel really appreciated. Gojko also answers my questions in great details. I really enjoyed my stay in Montenegro.
Gojko came up with a great tour from our few demands. His knowledge was extremely satisfying, and the overall tour was simply great. We felt that we got way more than what we had initially ordered.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kenneth for the kind words. I always try to do a little bit more for my guests. I'm glad you enjoyed the day.

My wife and I thought that Perast was a great place to see and the Lady of the rock island was facisnating. Gojko was incredibly nice and pleasant personality. He was an enthusiastic tour guide that engaged with us for the entire tour. I would suggest this tour to anyone visiting Kotor. Getting the background of Perast the islands made it so much more meanful. I would highly recommend this tour. Kotor was very interesting too, the sight of the city walls going up the side of the mountain is incredible!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Glenn, It's always great to her that.
Gary SteinerUnited States
All four members of my family really enjoyed our tour of Kotor with Gojko. He was very likeable and pleasant to have as a guide, in addition to being knowledgeable about the history and culture of Kotor. In addition to the "basics" of a tour, Gojko was willing to tell me about the politics of the region. Understanding the REAL Montenegro was one of the reasons we booked with TBL, and his willingness to talk to me about his homeland made a good tour into an outstanding one.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Gary, First of all thank you for the kind words. I thoroughly enjoyed the day with you 'wish it was longer. As I told you I don't keep anything hidden from the people who appreciate the honesty,and you're one of them. You made a lot of things clear for me in your field of expertise and that will make me a better guide. It would be great to see you again we have a lot more to talk about and I have a lot more to show you. Give my best regards to the rest of your family. Gojko

Gojko was an excellent guide, and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour itch him. The tour was well-planned and executed by a very personable and knowledgeable guide, and a very safe driver, Bronco. He thoroughly answered all questions about his country, which he obviously loves very much.

Goyko's English is very good and easy for us (a group of 6 from North America) to understand.

Ward EnglishUnited States
We had a GREAT tour. Goyko customized the tour to fit old folks with limited walking abilities. We didn't feel like we missed out on anything--we just took it easy and stopped to rest frequently. My only negative comment is that there was just too much talking--too much history--we can get that information from google. Other people may enjoy that, however. Overall, though, we were VERY pleased and would ask for him again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you

Terrific day with a terrific guide! Gojko was great to work with, asked our advice as to what we'd prefer to do from choices he offered us and showed particular concern for my recent knee replacement surgery, often adjusting the pace to meet my needs without impacting on the group. Great background and a wonderful day, not only in Kotor, where we enjoyed a snack, but also on the island which was an unexpected treasure.

David L.Norcross, GA, United States
Montenegro was a mystery to us - we were there only because it was a scheduled stop on our Mediterranean cruise. WOW, what a place! Gojko showed us around the top sights, sat with us and talked during an outstanding meal at the restaurant he recommended, and basically made us fall in love with this beautiful part of the world. Gojko is knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful - everything you could want in a guide, with excellent English skills on top of it all.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello David, I hope I turned mystery into something known and interesting. I'm glad you had a nice time with me and hope to see you all again in Montenegro. All the best Gojko

Carol LethbridgeRUTHERFORS, NSW, Australia
Words fail me. Kotor must be the world's best-kept secret. Thanks to Gojko's knowledge, love of, and pride in, his country, we were able to see so many things other ships passengers would not have seen. A personal tour offers so much more than a large-group tour and I would highly recommend Gojko and Tours by Locals to anyone contemplating a trip to Kotor. Well done Gojko - keep up the good work.

Janet ScottUnited States
The only negative is the ability to get off cruise ships for independent tours and that is reflective of the cruise line and offered as warning and not as criticism of Gojko. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of this picturesque area. The olive farm experience was memorable for a lifetime. Even the necessary detours due to paving were enjoyable because of the scenery. Thanks to Gojko! Excellent!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Janet, I'm glad that you found the tour excellent despite all of the circumstances that we had. I'm sorry that some of the time that I meant to spend with you was gone because of the unannounced roadworks. Thank you for a great review and hope to see you all again in my country. All the best to you all. Gojko
