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.

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.

A great day with well-timed stops to break up the long journey. The major stop is Kotar which is gorgeous but very small and very crowded. Budva was a nice place to have lunch and if Leo is your guide take his recommendation. Well organized tour and worth taking to know something of this area. Very scenic.

Fab tour and worth the money we paid! Getting through border took a while but that wasn't anything our guide could have done anything about.
Loved all places we visited, especially Kotor and had plenty of free time to potter and have lunch etc. The ferry back was fun too. Would definitely recommend this trip.

Transportation: big bus with air conditioning going to Montenegro. We were among the first ones to be collected from the hotel at 7:10, the last people were collected at 8:30. Unfortunately this couldn't be avoided and guaranteed in advance, so not the guides fault. The driver amazed everybody with his skills. Very safe, comfortable and convenient. Both border crossings were very quick at most 15 minutes each. The guide was excellent, was giving a lot of historical information. Unfortunately the road to Negushi village was closed and we discovered it only on our way to Montenegro. For those who came to the trip especially to visit this village it could be a major disappointment, that this was not communicated at the time of the booking. There were 2 bus stops. One directly after border crossing on the way to Montenegro at the gas station for coffee/toilet. Another one on the way from Kotor to Budva. In fact promotion of the ham sandwich with ham, which is not obligatory was getting annoying, but the views an photos taken, compensated for unnecessary advertisement. So the trip consisted of visiting Perast, free time in Kotor, free time / or walk with a guide to old town in Budva. The tempo of the trip was quite high, however the guide was going out of her way to make it comfortable for everybody and was giving quite a lot of interesting information. The guidance was in English and French, as I speak both, can confirm that the content was exactly the same. On the way back we took the ferry for 7 minutes to short the distance for 40 km, which was a nice experience. All in all great trip and highly recommended, even though it was mega long day we were the last ones to be disposed from the bus at 7:15 pm .
