Head south to diminutive coastal Montenegro on this day trip from Dubrovnik. Take a scenic drive on the southern Dalmatian Coast and experience small Adriatic villages and towns, including the UNESCO-listed Kotor, situated in Europe’s southernmost fjord. Admire Sveti Stefan, a medieval island turned luxury hotel, and spend some time in Budva, a walled medieval town on the sea, like a mini Dubrovnik. Finish with an optional ferry ride across the Bay of Kotor and then enjoy a final scenic drive on your way back to Dubrovnik.
  • Montenegro full-day trip from Dubrovnik
  • Take a guided tour of the charming town of Kotor
  • Admire views of the Adriatic Sea, the Bay of Kotor and the lush valleys of Župa Dubrovacka and Konavle
  • Take an optional boat trip to Our Lady of the Rocks island
Get picked up at your hotel in Dubrovnik and then hop inside the air-conditioned vehicle 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.

It was a very informative on the history of region. The bay was gorgeous and the Old Walled Cities of Kotor and Budva both had beautiful stone architecture.

Amazing and very talented fluently speaking English and Spanish tour guide! bravo for such a wonderful personality on your board - very knowledgeable, interested, funny and well organised! The trip was perfect for me as I could transfer from Croatia to Montenegro with a nice company of people and to share nice moments and time! the only minus was - a bit too long await time on the Croatan border 2hrs. But in general, I was glad to make this tour with Viator!

We had an awesome time on this trip. Make sure you take Euro's so you can eat and shop. Of the 3 cities, Kotor had the better shopping and sight seeing. Our guide Mini was absolutely fabulous!

There was a mixup with my husbands passport and Nina went out of her way to take care of it. It is a long day, but worthwhile.

Trip was supposed to be from 7:00 am to 7;00 pm. We did not get underway until almost 8:00 am and got back at 8:30 pm, the whole time on a barely air conditioned bus with the temps in the high 80's. Guides were fine but would rather have stayed in Dubrovnik which as a walled cith was more impressive than Kotor.

Very nice visit places, entustiated driver, everyting worked well. To little time in visiting places, one hour more in kotor and budva would upgrade review to five.

Trip was too rushed. Needed more time in Kotor. Could have skipped the stop in Budva. Guide and bus driver were excellent. Bus quality was adequate. Air conditioning needed service but temps were very warm outside. Made it through the borders in 15 minutes.

The day before our tour, we received an email saying our pick up time was 7:15am. That morning we had breakfast in a hurry and waited in front of Grand Villa Argentina hotel as we were told, but our bus arrived at 7:38 and still there were more people to pick up.Once the lasts tour goers were picked up in Cavtat, we headed to the border where we had to wait about an hour fifteen minutes to cross it. Once in Montenegro we stop at a shopping mall, enough time to go to the bathroom and have some coffee.The bus went all around Kotor Bay and our first stop was before the city of Perast; the people that wanted to join the optional to Our Lady of the Rock, went to the island; those that wanted to visit Perast, they have to walk about 15 minutes or more to the town and back to the bus. There is no visit to Perast even if it is marked, unless you don't take the boat.After that we went to Kotor were we had a nice walk tour with a local guide and some extra time to enjoy that beautiful old town (no much time to eat and walk, one of the another)From Kotor we went to Budva, stopping at a parking lot and then our guide took us a few blocks toward the beach to show us some places to eat, and then we were in our own with a lot of free time in a place were the old town is tiny, and all you can do is seating somewhere to have a quick lunch.On the way back we crossed Kotor Bay by ferry, once again waiting at the border (about 40 minutes), and everybody was taken to the pick up point.Our tour guide was Doris, I can't remember the driver's name.This tour would be perfect if instead of wasting time in Buvda, the visit to Kotor gets longer, and there is an actual stop in Perast. Kotor is a must see, and I'm sure Perast is too, but we didn't get there, just the island on our own expenses.

The tour is long but well worth it.

We were only warned of the border crossing time once we were on the bus. We did not have any issues and it took relatively quickly but the bus the day before arrived back in Dubrovnik at midnight. We arrived at 8pm.

The other downside was that we did not visit Sveti Stefan even though it was advertised. We still enjoyed the trip thoroughly.

The tour is very well organize and the guide Nina) was incredible. She has a lot of knowledge of every point we visited and was always ready to fill us with tons if information... while making the experience enjoyable. I strongly recommend this tour to anybody visiting Dubrovnik. Thank you Nina!!!
