What You Can Expect

Small-Group Montenegro Day Trip from Dubrovnik

Enjoy Montenegro's views in this day trip from Dubrovnik!

Get picked up at your hotel in Dubrovnik and then hop inside the air-conditioned minivan to make the drive south to Montenegro. Drink in the views of the Adriatic Sea and the Dubrovnik Riviera and learn about the history and culture of the area from your local guide. 

After crossing the border to Montenegro, twist and turn with the road, going around the large Bay of Kotor, and passing through charming villages along the way. Then stop in Perast, a lovely town at the base of St Elijah Hill. Consider taking the optional boat ride to Our Lady of the Rocks island to check out the baroque-era church (at own expense).

The next stop is Kotor, situated in a fjord and one of the most eye-pleasing Montenegrin towns. Once there, begin a walking tour that goes throughout the squares and narrow cobbled streets, taking you to historic churches such as the Cathedral of St Tryphon. Then take some free time to do some wandering — consider marching up the 1,350 steep steps to the San Giovanni Castle for an incredible view and photo opportunity — or sit down for a drink or a snack (at own expense).

After Kotor, drive down the coast further until you reach Sveti Stefan (St Stephen). Once a medieval fishing village with a small inlet connecting it to the mainland, Sveti Stefani is now a luxury hotel.

After gawking at the island-turned-resort, head to Budva, a 15-minute drive north of Sveti Stefan. This gorgeous walled city on the sea boasts attractive beaches and narrow cobbled streets. Take some free time to explore or sit down for a meal (at own expense).

Take a ferry ride across the Bay of Kotor and then enjoy a final scenic drive along the coastal roads of Montenegro to end your day. You’ll be returned to your Dubrovnik hotel.

Travelled on a very plush and comfortable coach / mini bus. Collected from our hotel on time as arranged. Our tour guide was excellent. The trip was superb, well worth the long day.

This was a fantastic trip, our guide Facundo was brilliant. Kotor is a really beautiful town, lots of little streets with lovely shops surrounded by an amazing wall that goes up into the hillside. Definitely a trip worth doing.

Tour was great although seemed a bit hurried but I can understand it being that way due to time constraint. Your guide was very good.

My husband and me enjoyed this trip a lot. Our guide and driver was super nice with a lot of knowledge. During one day we manage to see and learn a lot while having a good time without being exhausted. I highly recommend this trip to others!

We LOVED our day trip! We definitely felt like we saw a lot of the country in just one day. Really enjoyed stopping at several locations for a short time. Kotor was our favorite. Had lunch at a great little restaurant! Our tour guide was great too :

This tour was awesome! It was very well organized and easy to enjoy. A nice balance between guided time with a knowledgeable guide and free time to explore on our own. The towns and villages we stopped at were full of history and culture. We enjoyed a great meal in the city of Budva, at Jadran Restaurant. The landscape and views on the bus along the way were amazing. Absolutely loved the opportunity to see part of this beautiful country!

We had a wonderful time, Montenegro is beautiful. I wish we'd had more time in Kotor and less in Budva. The guides were excellent.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

We were taken to a number of magical places that photographs don't do justice to its true beauty. A nice tour guide took us on a full day tour of an up in coming tourist spot. Montenegro is a must if you are visiting Croatia. There was enough time to do our own exploring and the recommendation of the restaurant for lunch was one of the highlights of our 6 week holiday in Europe.

I loved the tour! Favorite part of it was Perast, the first stop, where you can take a 5min boat ride to the Our Lady of The Rock Church. The place was very picturesque. In Kotor, we had a tour guide and the Old Town was very beautiful. You need proper shoes to be able to walk up to the Old Town Wall as it is steep and rocky. However, you only had an hour or two stay in Kotor. Walking around the Old Town Wall would take the whole day. Also, be alert for pickpockets in Kotor, my friend had her purse stolen. Budva was a much modernized town, near a pier and a beach. The Budva Old Town was a bit smaller than Kotor but has some beautiful promenades and restaurants just outside of it. Overall, I'd recommend this tour. Only a small-group with great tour guide and a driver who really knows the place. Montenegro uses Euros as currency so you need to have euros in hand before the day tour.
