Hiking the Kotor City Walls is essential. The hike to St. John Fortress is not difficult and the views are unbelievable - best on a clear day but good any time.

I think you may have asked this in the wrong place. If you want to ask a specific reviewer a question it's best to message them direct by clicking on their profile. Whoever Kev is he is unlikely to see it here.
