Overview

From Dubrovnik, visit off-the-beaten-path Montenegro, a diminutive southeast European country that boasts big things: the UNESCO-World Heritage-listed Bay of Kotor, the walled seaside town of Budva, and the eye-pleasing city of Kotor, situated within Europe’s southernmost fjord. Have some free time to explore Kotor and Budva on your own and then enjoy a ferry ride across the Bay of Kotor on your way back to Dubrovnik.
  • Day trip to Montenegro from Dubrovnik, including Kotor and Budva
  • Learn about Montenegro’s colorful history from a guide
  • Swoon over the Bay of Kotor’s views, and travel through Risan
  • Make the most of free time in the must-visit cities of Kotor and Budva
  • Explore at your own pace and check out sights such as the Cathedral of St Tryphon
  • Cruise back across the idyllic Bay of Kotor, a UNESCO World Heritage site
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. Ride through 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. In Kotor, enjoy free time to explore the Cathedral of St. Typhon or the city walls.

Hop back on the bus and 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.

In the late afternoon, reunite with your guide. After a short bus ride north, board a ferry for a trip across the Bay of Kotor. Finally, get dropped off back at Dubrovnik’s Gruz port or at your hotel in Dubrovnik.

This is a very large group which comes with its own logistical issues, but overall was able to function fairly punctually. I would suggest an improvement in the agenda, such as including a visit to Our Lady of the Rocks and/or Sveti Stefan, which other tours seem to include but not this one? The guide Ivo provided clear information and directions.

We went on a guided bus trip to Montenegro. The tour Gide was very good. He was very informative and took great care of us. Same for the driver. The two stops were very good.

We really enjoyed Kotor, and to a lesser extent Budva. You get 4 hours of free time in the former and 3.5 in the latter. The only negative is the bus. First, the bus has a restroom (WC) yet we took a 20- minute bathroom break almost immediately after we departed Dubrovnik. Waste of time. Second, the air conditioning was pathetic. It was 90 F (32 C) outside, and the AC couldn't keep up, especially since the bus driver turned off the bus the entire time we were sightseeing and parked in the sun without even asking guests to close their window coverings to reduce heat from direct sunlight. Hint: sit directly behind the driver in the summer because he has extra vents!

This was a great tour - my friend and I had a lovely time. Our tour guide (whose name escapes me) was very knowledgeable, and gave great background to each town while we were driving to it, so that we could maximize our time in each. Our only complaint was that it was a VERY warm day, and the bus AC did not seem to be working well, meaning the trip back to Dubrovnik that evening was very warm, to the point of being uncomfortable.

Great tour! Kinda packs a lot into a single day. As long as youre ok with that you will enjoy.

The tour from Dubrovnik to Montenegro Kotor and Budva was disappointing for two reasons. First, The tour was given in two languages. That in itself is NOT a problem. Where it became a problem is when the English group outnumbering the second group 2:1 received less than half the guides information! When I broached the subject with the tour guide, her response was that she could not speak two languages at once. However, offering the English tour guests less than half the explaination the others received AND engaging in personal conversations with two of the other language group was off-setting. Secondly, Budva as a second destination to Kotor as part of the trip should be eliminated. More time should be spent in Kotor. Thats where the history, the beauty and interests lie.

Loved this tour and our guide. She was funny and energetic. Crossing the border can be rather time consuming, so be prepared to sit at the border between 30 minutes to an hour and a half. Kotor is beautiful! One thing that is different than the online description is that we didn't drive up the mountain for a beautiful view of Kotor. That road is under construction and has been closed to traffic for a long time. Instead, you get extra time in Budva. Budva is less enjoyable than Kotor. My recommendation: eat a late lunch in Budva that way you can maximize your time in Kotor!
