It takes a lot of time just to cross the border. Arrived in Montenegro, the visit to Perast is lovely. Then we went to Kotor, the most stunning place. However, the time allowed to visit the city, 2 hours which includes 1 hour of guided tour, is too short!!! Then we went to Budva, with little time to visit too!! What annoyed me most of all was the feeling that I spent more time on the bus than visiting the places. At the end of the day I felt exhausted and very frustrated.
Our Tour Guide was excellent...However the company he works for is VERY disorganized!!!!
The tour started 2 hours late....we sat on the bus at a bus stop for 2 hours waiting and we never did know if we were really going...Once we did, it was a great tour.
We had a great time in Kotor and Budva. The entire drive was beautiful. Our thanks to the guide for her restaurant recommendation in Budva , delicious and reasonably priced right on the shores of the Adriatic, very memorable.
Lovely tour of Montenegro, really got to see a big part of the country. Would have preferred more time in Kotor, to allow time to hike the hill. Budva was nice but only beaches. The border control takes time but its out of their hands- they try their best to make you as comfortable as possible. Would recommend this tour.
This tour is a nice way to see a bit of Montengro, if you are short on time. Border patrol wasn't too bad and our guide Lydia, was fun and engaging and did the tour in both English and Spanish. In my opinion, the lady of the rocks visit was the highlight of the trip, although Kotor was beautiful as well. I only wished we had more time there. I would have loved to climb the city walls and have a panoramic view of the city and sea, but we were pressed for time and I didn't want to rush. The tour would have been better if it just went Perast lady of the rocks and Kotor, and skipped Budva entirely. I didn't find anything to write home about in that town and would have loved more time in Kotor. The tour itself was well organized and Lydia made great recommendations for things to eat and to do in each place. Overall, it was a pretty good day
WOW! I fell in love with Montenegro on this day trip! We had a fantastic guide and driver! Kotor is lovely and I loved the hike up to the fort unfortunately too little time to make it all the way to the top. The Lady of the Rocks was surprisingly nice. In Budva we had an excellent lunch stop. I don't call myself a foodie person but I keep talking about that great lunch in Budva at Jadran Kod Krsta. I highly recommend this day trip!
The tour was okay. Due to traffic, we were quite late back and could not make it to the Sveti Stefan.
An excellent tour, quite long, but well worth the effort. Some beautiful sights to see along the coast and visited Kotor, Budva and Perast where we caught a boat across to Our Lady of the Rocks Island.
Although this tour is good, not great, I am glad that I took it because otherwise I would not have been able to travel to beautiful Montenegro. So if you only have a day, take this tour.
If I return to Montenegro it will be by ship and hopefully for a longer period of time than one day.
First of all, please ensure you have the correct visas prior to travelling to Montenegro. Montenegro is not part of the EU so please bear this in mind when applying for visas. Border control is extremely tight as it should be so ensuring you have the correct documentation will ensure it's as speedy as possible. Apart from the delays experienced at the border which we were told can be anything up to 3 hours in peak summer season! the day went well. We visited 3 places in Montenegro Budva, Kotor and Perast. We had 2 hours each at the first 2 locations and then 45 minutes at the final location, Perast. 2 hours is plenty in Budva but nowhere near long enough for Kotor! Kotor is such a cracking little town very picturesque, plenty of things to do and lots to experience. We managed half of the hike up to the top before succumbing to the heat! We still managed to get some great photos so would definitely recommend it, just make sure to have plenty of water with you! This is a perfect little place if you are a cat lover I'll say no more, don't want to ruin the surprise! I absolutely loved this town but I think 4 hours would be more appropriate so you can do the guided tour and still have time to look around and do everything else! Perast is only a short stop to take the boat of the Our Lady of the Rocks. Again, well worth the trip, if only for the nice cooling sea breeze! One thing to note, make sure you have plenty of Euros in cash you need it for the boat trip and for going up to the top. Restaurants accept card but it's much easier to carry cash. My only criticism was with the tour operator, Super Tours. Absolutely no organisation at all. I spent 2 hours the day before our trip calling them to try and find out where we needed to be and when as we were staying outside of the main area I finally got an email from them confirming at 21:09! Bit late in the day if you ask me! Saying that, the coach driver Jacob and our tour guide Lydia were absolutely wonderful. They made it an enjoyable and informative day. All in all, a fabulous trip which has made us want to do a holiday to Montenegro now! Might have to start looking...
