Kotor tours. This boat tour to Perast and Our Lady of the Rocks is the most popular tour for visitors to Kotor.
The two hour tour takes you to see these must-see attractions in the Bay of Kotor - by speeboat!
This tour takes just two hours and starts in Kotor, so it's ideal if you're visiting the city on a cruise ship or just visiting for the day.
On the tour you'll see the Bay of Kotor's must-see attractions:
You'll also get stunning views of the Bay of Kotor from the sea, including the old stone palaces that line the coast. Some are in ruins, some have been restored - all of them show the glory of a golden age when sailors brought riches home to the bay.
You'll start by cruising over to Our Lady of the Rocks, an man-made island that's been built up by locals over 500 years.
According to legend, the island was created after two local brothers found an icon of the Madonna washed up on a rock. Ever since then locals from Perast, have been throwing rocks in to create the island - even today, there's a festival every year called Fasinada, where locals throw rocks into the sea around the island.
Our Lady of the Rocks is a Roman Catholic church with a fascinating little museum attached. You can take a guided tour of the church and museum for just €1 per person.
