My name is Fedja. I am a tour guide from 2016 and have a lot of experience with free walking tours as my free walking tour was the first one organized in Montenegro in 2016. I was born in Kotor, Montenegro and lived here my whole life. As a local I know all the secrets our town keeps, local stories, best places to see, hidden gems and best bars and restaurants where local people prefer to go.
