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. 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.

This was the first of our tours on this trip and it did not disappoint. Our time to get through the border was not too long but I gather it can be worse mid-season so we had a quite a lot of free time at Kotor. Our guide was Montenegrin and very informative about the independence of Montenegro and the customs and language of the people and their relationships to the countries around them. Once we left Kotor we were taken to a high spot where we could photograph Kotor and the surrounding area and then onto Budva which is very much a seaside resort town. We were advised where we could get a good meal and after seeing the old town which is quite small we had something to eat before heading back. It was a good day which we thoroughly enjoyed

A long day but well worth it. Montenegro was beautiful and so different to the scenery around Dubrovnik. Cator is an amazing city with so many winding streets to explore and the stunning mountain backdrop. Budva was less interesting, though what remains of the old town is lovely. Great thanks to our guide who was very knowledgeable yet gave us lots of freedom to explore on our own. Recommended!

This was really a road trip through beautiful landscapes rather than just a trip to Montenegro. Kotor lived up to it's reputation and Budva was quaint at it's heart if not entirely dwarfed by the new town.

I remember having to cross the Yugoslavian border multiple times with it's searches and passport checks after Marshall Tito had passed. With only 6 vehicles waiting to leave EU territory, it took over an hour to make the crossing.
Free trade, borderless crossings and freedom of movement are the backbone of the EU, the disruption to trade is inestimable and every Brexiteer lunatic should be made to come here and see what living beyond the EU really looks like.

Tour was fantastic. The tour guide Ivana was well worth the money alone. She kept us entertained while delivering useful information on each location. Get lost in beautiful Kotor and kick back by the beach in Budva.

Fantastic! Easy trip from Dubrovnik and a great way to see this beautiful country. Our guide was knowledgeable.We loved Kotor-what an amazing city. Budva was pretty too but built up for the party set. We would have preferred a smaller town or village to see.
