What You Can Expect

Montenegro Day Trip from Dubrovnik

See the sights of Montenegro on a day trip from Dubrovnik!

Begin the full-day trip to Montenegro at Gruz Port, Dubrovnik’s ‘new’ port, located in the northern part of the city, or start with a pickup from your hotel. As the comfortable air-conditioned coach snakes along the gorgeous seaside highway in a southernly direction, enjoy the views of the shimmering sea and learn from your guide about the history and culture of Montenegro.

After crossing the border, encounter the Bay of Kotor, flanked by towering craggy mountain and dotted with bay-side medieval villages. One such spot is Risan, one of the most ancient settlements on the bay. Learn how how Queen Teuta, monarch of the Illyrian dynasty, once fought off the mighty Romans. From there, ride on to gorgeous Kotor, a UNESCO-protected town tucked away within a fjord. Take some time here to explore the walled town, strolling the narrow streets, lingers in the diminutive squares or even walking the 1,350 steps up to the Castle of San Giovanni for an unforgettable view.

Hop back on the bus, traveling south through the town of Cetinje, stopping along the way at the charming village of Njeguši. After reaching the medieval walled seaside town of Budva, hop off the bus and take some more free time for exploring. Lounge on the beautiful beach, wander the streets, sit down for a seafood lunch (at own expense), and gawk at the plus-sized yachts in the marina. You’ll also get the chance to check out the island of Sveti Stefan, linked to the mainland by a narrow inlet, which is today a posh Aman resort.

In the late afternoon, reunite with your guide. After a short bus ride north, board a ferry for a scenic trip across the Bay of Kotor. Finally, get dropped off back at Dubrovnik’s Gruz port or at your hotel in Dubrovnik.

Het was een zeer leuke trip. Goede bus en goede begeleiding. De reis duurt een hele dag maar de dag is zo om. Er is vanuit de bus ook genoeg te zien van het landschap. Er zijn voldoende stops onderweg en ook genoeg vrije tijd tijdens de stops en in Kotor. Het enige minpunt is dat er vaak wegwerkzaamheden waren waardoor je soms lang moet wachten om verder te kunnen.

It was raining but that didn't really take away from our trip. Our tour guide Daniella was wonderful, offering suggestions on places to eat as well as different sights we just had to see.

I'd have loved to have scaled the city walls in Kotor but due to the weather it was ill advised. I'd definitely do it again, hopefully with better weather.

No complaints, the mini bus they picked us up in was new and clean, the driver and tour guide were both great. Montenegro was interesting to see, the tour was a day well spent. I would book through Viator again, no problems.

Despite the most horrendous rain the guide remained upbeat, informative and made the trip very interesting. The driver was amazing under testing conditions. Okay we didn't get to see all the views but it was extremely atmospheric and quite a unique day out.
