I am not sure how it happened, but the times and dates got mixed up, and it was only due to the on the Dragana Musikic, that our day in Montenegro was a total success,, we learned the history, had a fantastic tour of the old city, and a great visit to the chapel island, Dragana is a great guide and we were extremely fortunate to have had the time we did to spend with her.
Roger OverturfUnited States
Very pleasant visit with her through wee Kotor. She made us feel at home, while educating us about the region and the local culture.
Asha HegdeUnited States
Dragana was knowledgeable, friendly and gave us the perfect group tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Asha!
John CookUnited States
Dragana gave us an enjoyable private walking tour of Kotor, with the right length and reasonable cost. Our group of four was reduced to three due to a mild health issue. That we don't give this tour our highest rating is due to our relatively superior tour experiences on this trip in Dubrovnik and Olympia, where our guides had delivered their vast knowledge of history and archaeology for their site, using superior English skills.
Hanlie CravenSouth Africa
Dragana was a very professional guide and shared a lot of historic knowledge about the surrounding areas. What a spectacular day - loved the boat trip to the man made island as well as the walk around the old town. Will definitely book with Tours by Locals again. Martinique from Cape Town, South Africa.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, my ladies! Best regards, Dragana
Katherine GrecoUnited States
Dragana was an outstanding guide! She is well versed on the sites in Kotor, Perast and informed on the culture of Montenegro. We had a tour of Kotor and visited every possible landmark. We then boarded a small bus vehicle and were driven to the seaside village of Perast. We had a short boat ride to the church, Our Lady of the Rock, which is magnificient. At the end, she was so helpful to make a res for us for lunch. Her choice was spot on! She gives an incredible tour! She is professional and lovely!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Katherine for your kind words. I am happy that you will cherish nice memories from Montenegro! Stay well! Dragana
Ana Rita SantaellaUnited States
Dragana was a great guide. Excellent tour of the walled city of Kotor and beautiful drive to Perast and boat ride to Our Lady Island. Suggested a very good restaurant for lunch.
Moanica CastonUnited States
The Kotor and Perast tour was such a wonderful surprise. Dragana lives in the Old Town and provided interesting information about not only the history, but life in modern Kotor. Such a beautiful place with a wonderful history. And to top it off, all of our photos look like postcards!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Moanica! I am really happy you had a nice time here, I absolutely enjoy touring with you. Regards, Dragana

Fred BergerGloucester Point, VA, United States
It is a pleasure to tour with someone who loves her city as much as Dragana. She did an absolutely outstanding job showing us all the interesting parts of Kotor. I can't say enough good things about the tour and would recommend it to everyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Fred for kind words, I had perfect time with you and your wife and friends as well. Stay well, Dragana
Arnold FoxUnited States
Dragana did a nice job with us on this half day tour. Although we started out in the rain, Dragana arranged for the weather to clear up when we were actually out touring. Good work!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Anything to make you happy! :) Thank you so much, Arnold, hope you will cherish some nice memories from Montenegro. Warm regards to all of you, Dragana
Dragana started our tour with a drive to Perast so we could see Our Lady Island before the large tour buses and crowds. Dragana was a reserved but informative and helpful guide. We returned to Kotor for a tour of the old walled city where Dragana lives with her family. Her pride in her city and country are clear, and her knowledge extensive. She was very accommodating to our interests and needs.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Anne-Louise, thank you very much for your review. Best regards to all of you! Stay well, Dragana
Carole PetersonUnited States
Our second tour with Dragana. We love Perast and all of the surrounding area. It is just so beautiful. If you tour with Dragana, you truly tour with someone who lives there, right there!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Carole! Warmest regards for you and your husband. Stay well!
It was delightful to have Dragana's company to wander around the cobbled streets of Kotor, enjoy to stories of how the series of port towns developed along this coastline and compare notes on our hopes and plans for our children.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Rosina, I had wonderful time with you and your family.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lary for your kind words. I will do my best to improve my service. Dragana
Robert C.United States
We scheduled a tour of Kotor as it was the first stop on our cruise. We used the Shore Excursions tool. Worked great. We liked the tour offered by Dragana D. We did not know what to expect. It was a wonderful experience. Kotor is a fun, history filled town. We walked all over within and outside the walled city. Our tour also included a stop at St. George Island and the church built there. Dragana was an excellent guide. Speaks fluent English and was very knowledgeable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, warm regards to whole Chernitsky family!
Ann PersonUnited States

Brian AngleUnited States
Dragana is a delight! Very local and easy to talk with. Great English. Knows history as well as current affairs. Flexible. Could not rate her any higher! We have now toured 40 plus countries and not all guides impress us. Dragana does.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much
Robert KesslerUnited States
Dragona did a fine job in a short tour of 1.5 hours. She was able to cover the most cited attractions, thoroughly and with grace. Do not attempt to do this on your own with a guide book. Her knowledge is worth more than the modest fee.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Robert
Paula LiguoriUnited States
We had a fantastic time with Dragana! Kotor is a beautiful place and Dragana graciously shares her knowledge with you. We learned so much about the culture and history of the area which was our goal in booking a local guide! Dragana is engaging and worked to accommodate our 80 year old parents. We altered the tour and included more driving for sightseeing and less of a walking tour so they could experience more! Perast and Our lady island was amazing! Thanks so much Dragana! We'll be back!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Paula!
Terry LeonardWaldfeucht - Bocket, NRW, Germany
Dragana took us on a wonderful tour through Kotor. We really enjoyed the sights and the information. Thank you!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!
Our ship tendered passengers to the dock and we were able to be off the ship in good time. Unfortunately Dragana was unable to conduct the tour due to illness but she had arranged for Maria to take the tour in her place. So I am unable to rate Dragana. Our tour was very well conducted however and everyone thoroughly enjoyed Maria's knowledge and presentation. The tour itself was very interesting nonetheless and we really enjoyed being able to visit the church on the island at Perast
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Valerie

Kimberly KalupaUnited States
Dragana was a lovely, patient, & informative guide. She arranged the tour to minimize crowds and was very flexible to best meet our needs. All the arrangements were seamless. We had a lovely morning with her and thoroughly enjoyed our time in Perast and Kotor. Her warm personality made it feel more like we were spending the day with a family friend rather than a stranger. She was patient with our small kids and their many questions. Make the most of your time in this gorgeous city by calling Dragana
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kimberly, you have wonderful family. Big hug for KK and Maya!
Tamara BeasleyUnited States
WOW - what a wonderful tour guide. We immediately fell in love with Dragana. Our ship was delayed due to fog and she patiently waited for us on the quay. She quickly rearranged our day to avoid the crowds and proceeded to show us beautiful Kotor. Dragana is smart, funny and charming. You could do no better than spend the day with her - highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Now I am blushing! Thank you Tamara very much, best regards to you and your friends.

Robin HarlandUnited States
We had a great morning's tour of Kotor with our guide. The weather was dreadful so we were not able to see Perast or go to the islands, but we did enjoy a visit to Tivot and views of the bay. We requested only a driver, not a guide, so we did not need much English from our driver. However, the description of our tour said that he was fluent in English, which was clearly not the case. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and would happily recommend toursbylocals and Dragana to anyone without reservation.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your tour with Dragana. After verifying the information containing in the customized tour, we noticed that Dragana did not make any mention of the driver being fluent in English.
enjoyed the tour, could on had some general info as we travelled to and from bodva, not much mentioned while driving. time for the trip sufficient
Gay SutherlandUnited States
Kotor for being so small had some interesting history. Charming guide and town.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Best regards!
Richard MattiesUnited States
Dragana was terrific. She got us to all of the Kotor high spots, and we arrived at most places before the tour buses. We especially thank her for doing something "extra" for my wife, who was celebrating her birthday while were there.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! Best wishes to all of you.
Dragana was an excellent guide. Was waiting for the four of us at the pier. Her English is great and puts us native speakers to shame. Were driven first to Perast on Dragana's advice to beat the crowd and then back for a walk of the old town. Learned not only history from Dragana but also modern life in Montenegro. Would highly recommend
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mark, thank you very much!
Frank LucasUnited States

Marilyn VarcoeUnited States
Our guide was very sweet and knowledgeable and the tour was pleasant everyone liked her and tipped her well. However I did get feedback from the group that she was too quiet ,hesitant, and non assertive in directing the group. We were 10 and she would probably do better with a smaller group She would be 4 stars in her knowledge but 3 stars in her directing the tour. If she was more forthcoming with her knowledge she could potentially be an excellent guide
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Marilyn, I will have your warm advice on my mind.
Veronica BelloneUnited States

Dragana is an excellent tour guide. She is friendly, enthusiastic and was able to shape her tour to meet our needs. She provided clear driving directions from Dubrovnik and suggested sights to see along the way to Kotor. She knows the history of Kotor and the surrounding area very well and is able to mix it with some local anecdotes. We learned a lot and were entertained at the same time. Thank you Dragana.
