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 cozy, 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. Take a stroll in Risan, a seaside town, and then also stop in Perast, a lovely town at the base of St Elijah Hill. Consider taking the optional boat ride to 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 on an island 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.

Our day trip to Montenegro from Dubrovnik was the absolute highlight of our vacation in Croatia. We had so much fun exploring the town of Kotor, Budva, and another one. In addition, our tour guide was so informative, funny and kind!! We would recommend this to anyone thinking of doing a day trip.

Fantastic everything! Great driver, tour guide and local Kotor guide. I highly recommend taking the time to visit Montenegro while in Croatia and this was a great way to do it.

Out of the two tours we did in Croatia, the other being to Korchula, this was easily the top tour! We have seen lots and learn lots and even have enough time to roam and explore on our own. The small minivan, however, was a little tight and thus not as comfy as our Korchula tour one. On our drive back to Dubrovnik, the bus was kind of stuffy, though. Overall, a very professional lady guide sorry, forgotten her name and we have had a great day !

Highly recommended tour. Montenegro is beautiful and rich in history as well.
Tip - If you are going in off season, I would recommend booking the tour after you reach Dubrovnik. There are tour operators in Old town which offer deep off-season discounts.
