Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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. Ride through 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. In Kotor, enjoy free time to explore the Cathedral of St. Typhon or the city walls.

Hop back on the bus and 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.

In the late afternoon, reunite with your guide. After a short bus ride north, board a ferry for a trip across the Bay of Kotor. Finally, get dropped off back at Dubrovnik’s Gruz port or at your hotel in Dubrovnik.

A quick look at Montenegro
Laurel_D
, Sep 2021
This was a good way to get a simple glimpse of Montenegro. Both towns were of interest and the bay around Kotor is incredible. Budva seemed to be overly commercial in its quest for tourism funding, but I was glad we went to both locations. Kotor's medieval setting was charming and interesting. It was easy to navigate the little city and find your way around. Budva was more confusing and I got turned around numerous times, but that is part of the charm of an ancient city.

Day Trip to Montenegro

Overall, the day trip to Montenegro was a nice trip and I was glad I went. That being said, while I appreciate the free time to explore, it would have been nice to have a tour in the old towns for Kotor and Budva. Our guide was not licensed to give tours in Montenegro. Because of the time consuming transfers at the borders, we didn't get much time to explore Budva at all. We had lunch there and managed to have about 25 minutes until it was time to go back to the van. The van itself was a miserable ride. We had to sit in the very back and bounced all the way to Montenegro and back. At times, it was quite painful. If you go on this trip, be prepared to spend a lot of time traveling. It's a long day - 12 hours for sure.

Hi Valerie, thank you for your comments. It is clearly stated what is included in this excursion what not, the stops and duration of the excursion are stated in description and itinerary. Due the epidemiological situation we managed to honor 12 hours of duration of the excursion, you were in 19seater minibus not a van. Kind regards, Ivo

Nice day tour in Monténégro, everything has been precisely organized, and the agenda has been respected very carefuly. We had the time to stop and take pictures, and to visit the cities of Kotor and Budva. Kotor and its bay are mind-blowing. Budva is disapointing in my opinion. Too many construction sites to welcome nightlife guests. Deteriorating its inner natural beauty. Guide speaks good english and is very sweet. So does the driver. The bus is small and clean. The only black spot is the waiting at the border and the way back especially (+/- 2h). But it's not the tour operator's fault. I highly recommend this tour.

I was expecting this trip to be great but not necessarily excellent. It surpassed my expectations. The guide was average, but it is worth the trip for the amazing views. You definitely have enough time to climb up to the church or beyond and look down on the city. Allow a few more minutes to get down as the rocks are very slippery. The border crossing can take longer, so just bring some headphones to chill out during this part of the trip.

Great way to see the highlights of Montenegro. It has so much natural beauty and Kotor has amazing scenery and really nice Old Town. If you are in shape I would highly recommend walking the steps to the fortress the views are incredible. I would however take the steps to the top and take the same route back down...the path on the other side is quite treacherous. And for sure don’t do it in inclement weather the stones would be so slippery...some people wearing sandals were slipping on a dry sunny day when we were there. Have plenty of patience at the border....because it takes a long time and it just is what it is but you will relax more if you know this and just bring a book along or listen to music:) All in all a great trip!!

Beautiful...but

The parts of Croatia and Montenegro we saw during our trip were beautiful. There were breathtaking views throughout our journey and interesting old sites to visit. The trip around Kotor Bay was picturesque, with majestic mountains and endless water to gaze at. Kotor Old Town has lots of gift shops and things seemed very inexpensive (we had three drinks in a cafe for under €5) Budva is very pretty, again with lots of gift shops and delicious looking restaurants (we saw a place that had strawberry, banana and chocolate pizza!). You can walk a few steps right to beach from the old town. We had expected the tour to include some more historical information about the sites we visited. Our guide gave us a lot of information on the bus about Montenegro generally but we like to learn about the things we are looking at as we see them. We would have preferred more time in Budva and less in Kotor old towns. Crossing is the border is boring. It takes at least 1.5hours in each direction. I know we got off lightly and we realise this cannot be avoided but it would be good if this time was spent learning about the places being visited on the trip or building some rapport between the group. It would be good if there was something in the advert to tell you to bring something to do while you are waiting. Also to explain there is no working toilet on the coach (rather than a bucket). We also noticed that people were made to feel a bit guilty if they were the last back to the coach, even if they were still early. On the whole the trip was worthwhile (our group has spilt views about whether we would go again) but it is a very long way to go on a coach for one day, so our advice is to be prepared (with activities and treats!). Thank you for taking us.
