With a background in managing 5-star restaurants and bars, I've interacted with people worldwide and realized their curiosity about Montenegro. Combined with my passion for biking, kayaking and hiking, it has driven me to transition into tour guiding. So now I'm licensed tour guide and - for the beginning - I would like to show you the best of my hometown. Welcome to Podgorica !

Nikola knows a lot of things and could answer all of my questions very interestingly about podgorica, which has both a very interesting and diverse history and seems to be quite liveable. Also he was very engaged, giving the tour only for me and making it fit with my time schedule. Also very nice and open chats!

Amazing tour with Nikola, he’s an extremely knowledgeable and personable guide. It was just me on the tour (which can sometimes be awkward), but it felt as though we were just two mates chatting. I learned so much more than I ever would have thought possible about Podgorica & Montenegro. Cannot recommend this highly enough - especially when you first arrive, explains the city so well!

Route was really really good and well planned. We visited all of the major sites of the city and loads of cool things we never heard of. Our guide Nikola was very relaxed and laid back, the walk didn't feel rushed or overwhelming with information. He was happy to answer all our questions. The only suggestion I would make would be to potentially visit 'The Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ' as I think it's well worth seeing.

The tour was adequate and lasted as expected, but Nikola struggled to capture the group's attention. There wasn't much coverage of the country's or city's history, and the narration was rather monotonous with some facts presented superficially. However, questions asked were answered.

Nikola is an interesting person. His style is understated but he gives all the important information about Podgorica and Montenegro. Podgorica is a very new city, so there is not as much stuff to see as in other European capitals, but Nikola makes it interesting. Overall I liked the early start time, his delivery and the content of his tour. Recommend!
