The Best Kotor Walking Tour

(This post may contain affiliate links. Find more info in my disclaimer.)

Taking a Kotor walking tour is a great way to get the most out of your visit to Montenegro’s extraordinary walled city. There’s so much history, culture and heritage contained within these ancient walls, a walking tour will help explore the beating heart of this medieval town.

You can get maps of the town at the info centre at the Sea Gate entrance, and although they’re great for helping you navigate the winding alleyways inside the town (in which it’s all too easy to get lost!), aside from citing the date of various historic buildings, they don’t offer any real information about Kotor and its long history.

For that, you’ll need to take one of the town’s guided walking tours. Believe me, it’s so worth it. In just an hour, a Kotor walking tour will give you a great insight into Kotor’s unique culture. A tour will take you through the town’s squares, and past the palaces, churches and museums. And once you’ve had an introduction to the town, you can go back and visit the attractions that you found most interesting, like St Tryphon’s Cathedral, Sveti Nikola Church, the Maritime Museum or even the Cats Museum of Kotor. You can also hike San Giovanni Fortress for bragging rights and the best view in Kotor!

Along the way you can ask questions about Kotor and Montenegro in general. Montenegrins are passionate and knowledgeable about their country and you can guarantee your guide will happily answer any question you have. 

The perfect accompaniment to round out your day in Kotor is a boat tour in the beautiful Bay of Kotor.

Best Kotor Walking Tour

The best Kotor walking tours are run by Kotour, a specialist Kotor tour agency that runs fantastic group Kotor walking tours. Their guides are passionate professionals who will take you on a journey not only through the winding alleyways, but through Kotor’s illustrious history.

The tour covers all the highlights of Kotor old town:

  • Armory Square and Clock Tower.
  • Flour Square.
  • Buca and Pima Palaces.
  • St Tryphon Square.
  • Maritime Museum Square and Karampana Fountain.
  • St Lucan and St Nicholas Square.

Kotor Walking Tour Times

The tours run three times a day, every day between 15th April and 15th October at:

  • 8:30 - 9:30am
  • 10 - 11am
  • 12 - 1pm

From 16th October to 14th April you can book the tour on request as long as you have at least four people.

The groups on this tour are limited to a maximum group size of 15. This so much better than the huge groups on the cruise ship tours. Not only are those tours much more expensive, the large groups make it hard to see what the guide is talking about and impossible to ask any questions. These small, intimate group tours mean you get a personal experience at a fraction of the cost of a private tour.

Kotor Walking Tour Price

The regular price for an hour walking tour is just €10 per person. And children under 12 can do the tour for free.
