What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Montenegro Day Trip from Dubrovnik

Admire the Bay of Kotor on a ferry ride!

Begin the tour by getting picked up at your central Dubrovnik hotel and then head out of the city via comfortable air-conditioned vehicle. Enjoy the view of the Adriatic and the Dubrovnik Riviera and the rural Konavle region, as your guide drives the van and gives you background on the history of Montenegro, a diminutive and overlooked Balkan country. 

After crossing the border, ride along the coast roads, which curve around bay after bay. Admire the beautiful Bay of Kotor, Europe’s southernmost fjord, and stop in the village of Risan for a photo opportunity and to stretch your legs. 

Later, hop out of the van to explore Perast. Stroll the streets and learn about the devastating earthquake that rocked the village in the 1970s, destroying much of the medieval town. Take in some of the Gothic and baroque buildings and then get on a boat to cruise out to a tiny island to check out the Church of Our Lady of the Rocks (at own expense). 

After a boat ride back, get back in the van and ride to Kotor. The walled city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a fun stroll. Pop into the Cathedral of St Tryphon and take some time to explore on your own. If you're  feeling adventurous, walk up the 1,350 steps to the Castle of San Giovanni. Hint: it offers an amazing view. 

Travel south  and stop at the island of Sveti Stefan, once a medieval fishing village, linked by a short isthmus to the mainland. It is now a luxury hotel. 

Finally, head on to Budva, a walled city on the sea, sort of like a mini Dubrovnik. Drink in the views of the sea and take some time to relax on the beach or walk the narrow lanes inside the walls. 

After some free time to explore, meet the guide at the prearranged time and start your journey back to Dubrovnik. Enjoy one last delight– a ferry crossing along the Bay of Kotor –— and then finish your tour in the late afternoon back at your hotel.

We opted to do the day trip to Montenegro fairly last minute as we realized three full days in Dubrovnik was probably too much. The company was great in communicating the plans to us and our driver, Kris, was great as well. For three lady travelers in their late 20s and early 30s it was a very comfortable ride in the Mercedes sedan. We left a bit earlier in the morning than the published tour time at our guide's request to avoid long lines at the border crossing. We were able to adapt the tour itinerary a bit based on our preferences. When in Budva, take the taxi boat out to Hawaii island and spend an hour or two eating at the restaurant there and on the beach. It's a nice break from the walking tours of the old cities.

Amazing day trip from Dubrovnik!! Our guide Igor was excellent, he really knows his stuff. Since this is a private tour so we get to choose what, where, and how long we want to spend at each location. We ended up going to Budva, Kotor and Perast. They were all very beautiful. He also took us to this very nice restaurant with an amazing view of the bay. Would highly recommend this trip.

Montenegro was a lovely country. Our driver was punctual and knew so much of the history surrounding the area, it made for a very interesting drive. We caught a little boat to the small church on the island there were 8 of us, we had time to ourselves to explore the walled town, have lunch by the water, climb many steps voluntary for a spectacular view, returning via the coastline to Dubrovnik. A very full and wonderful day. Highly recommended.
