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.

Very nice tour. We had a guide and a driver. The guide gave us an intro on the bus before the arrival, making the journey less dull. But then again, the view is so beautiful it was hard to get bored, even on the bus. Was interesting to see how cat friendly Kotor was. Ferry ride was also a nice touch.

We really enjoyed this tour. The guide, Branco, was informative and full of humour. Although the day was long it was very well organised. There are two longer stops at Kotor2 hours and Budva 1 1/2 hours. There is also a shorter stop in Perast and a short ferry ride. we would definately recommend the tour.

This trip is just as advertised. A comfortable bus, with a guide who spoke excellent English. If you have time to spare from the beaches of Dubrovnik, it is a great day trip. Beautiful view of the Adriatic coast as you drive along. As a bonus, you might stop into Bosnia Herzegovina for a quick rest stop on the way.

Overall, pleased with the trip. Loved Montenegro and definitely think it's worth a visit. Beautiful scenery! The guide was informative and the company was very helpful. I forgot my Kindle on the coach on the way back and they helped me reunite with it within 30 minutes! I am very grateful!

A trip to Montenegro is definitely a more worthwhile affair than visiting Bosnia-Herzegovina, which was a bit of a non-event if I am honest. We had a lovely time during the day and I would love to return to Montenegro one day.
