Hello! My name is Sofija. I am a local and I work as a licensed tour guide in my country since 2016. My goal is to share the knowledge of the country's centuries-old heritage, traditions, and history in an engaging and fun way, as well as pointing out little hidden gems that usually escape the attention of most tourists. Let's meet! :)

Just the right combination of informative content, personal revelation and light breezy delivery. I was appalled at the meanness of my fellow attendees who seemed reluctant to make even a minimum wage contribution at the end of the tour. But that's not a criticism of the tour. Thanks Sofija.

Hi we had a great tour of Kotor with Sofiya explaining so much about the history of the city and how it has evolved over the centuries. She did it very professionally and with some humour thrown in to boot. She is a great asset to your touring group .

Sofija is an excellent storyteller with a ton of knowledge to share about Kotor! I appreciated the way she organized each stop around the old town. She is kind and really funny! I would highly recommend this tour to first-timers in Kotor or anyone who wanted to learn more about the city!
