Our guide was lovely. Even though it was off season, it was a pleasure walking through the intimate old towns. No crowds either! My guide was thoughtful enough to find me some cold medicine when I discovered that I was starting to sniffle. Good times!

An excellent day trip with a good tour guide. Saw and learnt about a lot of towns with plenty of information given on route. Trip was via minibus which was comfortable

We love this tour.. highly recommended..I received an email 2 days before telling me what pick up time from my hotel. They were organized and punctual on picking us up , checked our passports and ready to go..our tour guide oct 30 was very patient and knowledgeable ..our driver zack was great.. no lines in the border.. that is the reason why we decided to visit end of October to avoid too much crowd.. the places we visited were great, we had a boat ride going to the lady of the rocks, it was a wonderful experience.. we were ok paying extra for the boat ride (that is why you are on vacation, so your experience is better) our guide was so patient , there were people that came late in our meeting area on our way back to Dubrovnik but still she (our guide) was the one to apologize to the whole group.. Kotor is a very charming city,, budva and pesart too.. I would recommend this tour to everyone ..

A full day out with a very informative guide. Kotor is delightful, it would have been great to have had time to walk at least a section of the city walls. The boat trip is extra but a wonderful end to the day.

Really enjoyed this trip,The bay of Kotor is just stunning. Would have loved more time at each stop but it was great to fit in 3 fabulous places in one day! Great value for money, both border crossings were good. I think Lydia makes this trip extra special with her knowledge and passion for the area and its history. Would highly recommend it.

Couldnt have asked for a better time. 20 min to cross the border. Full day, we visited budva, kotor, lady of the rock and two photographic stops for pictures. Vlad made the day. Very knowledgable. Great driver. Well worth it. Your milage may vary depending on if your in a small coach or bus situation. We were 8 altogether and it worked out great.

The guide Lydia was really good. The time allocated for each spot was ridiculous though. . This was not decided by her. We had only an hour and half in kotor. From which half an hour was guided tour. We had lunch and dessert our time was up. We should have taken a bus from dubrovnik to. Kotor and back instead. But people who want to visit all three places this tour is good. This was a mistake on my part.

Have booked this tour based on the excellent reviews and indeed have not regretted. After passing the borders between Croatia and Montenegro (where indeed you have to spend some time) we have visited the Lady of the Rocks, a small church built on a small island. It was a short ride by boat (optional) for around EUR 10, which is highly recommended. Then we have headed to Kotor, where we had a free time of around 2 hours, after a 30' tour with a local guide. Last but not least, we have visited the city of Budva, where is highly recommended to visit the small town inside the walls. Last but not least, would like to thank our guide Nikolina (Nina). She is very professional, excellent English and Spanish speaking and always ready to explain everything during our tour.

It was a very nice trip, nicer than I expected. I was thinking it could be too much bus but it was nice and Montenegro landscape was great! I recommend it. Our guide did her best to make it even better

Beautiful island. The old city is very lovely and we had an excellent guide! Very interesting history and things to look at.

This tour to Montenegro was one of the best we had during our visit to Croatia. It included Perast, Kotor and Budva. A rainy morning lead us to Lady of the rocks. Except 10 persons and the guide, the rest stayed on Perast waiting for us. Surprisingly this experience was amazing, unforeseen. We got soaked but we saw the island in a way I didn't expected. Do not miss the opportunity to go, unless the boats are not working. Kotor has the charm of those europeans old towns but we couldn't' hike to the Castle Of San Giovanni due to the weather. After a while started to clear up but there was not enough time to do it by then. Budva was extremely beautiful. The whole trip worth the long drive and the time on the borders (not that much when we came back). Nina was a super, great, amazing guide and the driver show experience on the road. We share good moments. We really love this trip, besides the wet start.

Lydia was our tour guide. She was excellent! It was an awesome long day trip from Dubrovnik. The tour had three stops which were all interesting.

Our day trip to Montenegro was truly enjoyable thanks to the information provided and organization skills of our lady guide, Stela. We visited Perast, Kotor and Budva as indicated in the description of the tour. It was a very interesting and very picturesque trip with these three places. Luck was with us as the border control did not take long.
• Submitted 20 Sep 2019
The tour in general terms was interesting and well organised. We had enough free time to spend during our stops, discovering the cities. What I didn't like was the fact we had to pay extra to participate for the tour of last visit with boat, while we had no other chance to spend our time till the time of the departure, as we were left at an isolated point to wait in the bus or out to a coffee shop

We had a brilliant day trip to Montenegro. Robert was our guide and driver. We were a small group of 8 in a nice minivan/SUV. Separate from the coach load which was great. Robert was excellent - very informative and fun. Looked after us really well. Kotor was hot but great to see. All in all a great day trip!

Initially some confusion about which tour package we were receiving as well as where to meet, but once that was resolved, this experience was exceptional! Our guide, Vladimir, is a master as a tour guide, providing a lot of information. He was very genuine and friendly throughout the day (even though it was 104 degrees F). We would highly recommend this tour, especially with Vladimir as a guide.

Went to beautiful Kotor and Budva. Had wonderful guides, full of knowledge and gave us loads of info throughout the tour. Kotor has the most beautiful walled city and is worth the visit alone, Budva is more of a party town, has plenty of seaside restaurants and bars. Also, visited Our Lady of the rocks Island which is utterly stunning. We had a great day and well worth the trip!

If you are planning to go to Croatia and have a day to spare, this day trip to Montenegro is worth every cent you spend. Well planned trip, convenient and cozy ride, and a great tour guide! Me and my friends enjoyed our trip to Montenegro and was very Happy about it. Thank you so much!

Very nice, informative, busy trip. We were in a bit of rush but there's nothing to do about it as it was a day trip. We left aroudn 7am and came back around 9pm. Guide was good, she gave all the details. Really worth to go.

We had a great time on this day trip for our honeymoon. It was a swelteringly hot day, but the tour bus was comfortable and well driven. The places that we went to were interesting and diverse, especially the included walking tour of the old town of Kotor. Tanya was a great tour guide, always willing to answer questions and to make conversation. On the way back from Montenegro, I had a restroom emergency that was immediately accommodated, which I highly appreciated. Overall, I would definitely recommend this day trip!

I was picked up just near my accommodation in a lovely mini bus and warmly greeted by our tour guide (so sorry I can't remember her name but lovely lady). Once through border control, we visited 3 places, all are breathtaking and absolutely worth a full day trip. Our guide was very informative, friendly and professional. We stopped in Budva for a beautiful lunch. A very worthwhile trip, so happy I went :)
