I was born in this beautiful country of Montenegro and I believe that all people, at least once in their lives, should visit it. It is great for all types of travelers, whether those who like to travel full of adrenaline or those who like slow and easy days. Accordingly, I am ready to offer city tours lasting 2-3 hours, or on special requests, weekend gastro-wine tours or full-day tours in Montenegro.

Tour description

If there are no schedules available for the selected date, please get in touch with me. Maybe someone won’t come but didn’t cancel.

Please, cancel your booking at least 24 hours prior if you are not genuinely interested in my tour. Last-minute cancelation in less than 24 hours, doesn't help. Other walkers plan in advance, and they'll find the tour unavailable because of the false bookings.

The tour starts in the oldest part of Podgorica city, in front of the Clock Tower, at Becir Beg Osmanagic Square.

As we walk along the narrow streets of "Old Varosh", you will see important monuments and townhouses and learn more about the old part of the city, its medieval ramparts, and the old bridge at the confluence of two rivers.
From the Ottoman period to the latest history, I am going to tell you some exciting stories.   
The tour ends in front of the Fountain at Independence Square.

Tour Include (mention): 

  • Clock Tower and Old Town
  • Starodoganjska Mosque
  • Depedogen Fortress
  • Stone bridge on Sastavci (river Ribnica Bridge)
  • King’s Nikola Monument
  • Petar II Petrovic Njegos’s Park and Monument
  • National Theatre
  • Bokeska Street
  • Municipality Building and Statue of Marko Miljanov
  • Library 
  • Independence Square (formerly Square of the Republic)

Additional Information:

The tour includes walking on stairs, but nothing strenuous. Choose walking shoes/sneakers that perform equally well in changing weather conditions. Also, don’t forget to bring water and a hat/sunscreen during summer. I’ll try to find some shade, though :)

- Whole year - 3
(If this number is not reached booking will be canceled). 
- The tour will be canceled in case of heavy rain (which causes flooding on the streets along which the tour runs).

How much does this tour cost?

Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).

Wonderful tour with a very enthusiastic guide. She obviously loves her city and gives you a totally new impression of Podgorica. If you're in town, you should attend it.

Tatjana is a treasure trove of the history of Podgorica. You should probe her with questions, and she will really open up with all the facts and figures. She also has excellent recommendations for restaurants and things to do. The tour is well worth your time. Go for it.

Tour que superou as expectativas pela quantidade de informação. Tour fácil de fazer e pouco cansativo oelo facto da cidade ser plana, apesar do calor. Guia com um óptimo inglês e boa projecção de voz. Muito entusiasta em partilhar a história da cidadece vários temas e cultura sobre Montenegro e os montenegrinos. Tour imprescindível para conhecer uma cidade pouco badalada nos roteiros turísticos É impossível ficar deliciada com a cidade sem ouvir as suas histórias. Recomendo muitíssimo
