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.

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.

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.

We had a fantastic time on this trip. The guide was super helpful and gave us tips on what to do while we were in each spot as we needed to use our time wisely. We got to roam around but still get to see everything listed in the overview. Everywhere we went the views were spectacular! I definitely recommend this tour to everyone who wants to have a day trip. Absolutely stunning!

I really enjoyed this day trip. My mom and I had rented a car throughout Croatia and drove through Slovenia and Bosnia as well but I wanted a break from driving so we decided to take this tour. The tour guide was very nice and helpful and she would take pictures for people, which was very nice. She was very informative. I loved the scenery along the drive and this time I could look at it as much as I wanted since I was not driving! I loved going on the lake because it was a gorgeous day. Kotor was very interesting and honestly I did not read a lot about it before going. The city walls were very impressive. We had a short walking tour in Kotor where we got some great history. The guide was very animated and it seemed like he truly enjoyed talking about his country and Kotor. I wish we had more time in Kotor and LESS time in Budva. Kotor is much bigger and there is more to see and do whereas Budva is much smaller but we still had two hours here which is WAY more time than needed. I would definitely recommend this tour if you are in Dubrovnik and have the extra day.

This may have been the highlight of our whole trip to Dubrovnik. Our guide, Ivan, was so knowledgeable, fun, nice, and really made the trip come together for us with his suggestions. I would recommend this to anyone with an extra day in the area looking to discover a lesser-known, yet beautiful and interesting country.
