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 minivan. 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.

This tour was great! Ivan was the most wonderful tour guide. He is so knowledgeable about history and his English was great! We were able to spend enough time in each place. We wanted to go to the beach in budva but there was literally no open seats (not the tour company and #39;s fault).

This trip was amazing, and Ivan, our guide, was superb - gave so much information about the history both recent and distant as well as the culture and local customs. It was worth every penny and I would recommend to anyone.

Amazing tour with a fantastic guide
I would highly recommend this private tour. Alex was our driver/tour guide was extremely professional and very knowledgeable and kept us entertained throughout the trip. The tour itself is lovely with stunning views of the mountains, sea and lake. The town of Kotor is lovely to wander around and the trip from Kotor to Budva is quite spectacular.
Alex certainly went above and beyond the call of duty when my boyfriend forgot his backpack at a restaurant in Budva which we only realised when we got back to Dubrovnik hours later. Alex assured us that we would get the backpack back and contacted the restaurant and arranged for it to be given to the tour guide in the area the next day. Alex then personally ensured that we got the backpack back the following evening.

Wonderful trip! A private tour is the way to go. Our guide, Aleksandar, was wonderful -very funny and informative. Since it was a private tour, we were able to determine how long we wanted to stay in each location. The border crossing was very quick. Great way to learn about the area. Highly recommend.

This tour should not be missed! It's basically catered to you and what you are interested in. We had some ideas, including a restaurant we wanted to go to. Our Guide, Alex then figured out how to make everything fit without being rushed. He recommended new things, things it woudl be okay to miss, etc. We had 3 children with us 11 and up and he was great with them, making it understandable, active and everyone enjoyed themselves! Best tour we had and guide!

This trip is excellent and well worth the money, 11 hours of fabulous places to visit. Our guide was Ivan and he made this day brilliant, well informed, gave full history of Croatia and was very knowledgeable, so thank you Ivan. There was 6 of us and he made sure this trip was tailored to our needs. If you want a snapshot of Montenegro then this is the trip to take. The company is very reliable to book through and I am looking forward to using this site again in the future.
