A great trip if you want to see all the best bits of the country in one day! We got to see the infamous island in Budva, with photos tops above the town too, then went into Budva and looked around the old town for about 20 mins. Then went to Kotor, where we got more photos stops above the town, and then when we go into the town our guide allowed us 1.5hrs of free time, we had lunch in this time. We then drove to Skadar national park where you get to see the river bend you’ve probably seen in the pictures! It’s a great day for photos, seeing all the best sights. It’s less of a ‘doing things’ tour, more of a viewing the best sights. Me and my partner were prepared for hiking etc but it’s really not that kind of tour if that’s what you’re after, however it’s great for saying all the best bits of the country in one day! Thoroughly enjoyed it, thank you to our guide! 😊

First time in Montenegro so wanted a custom day tour to see the highlights. Was extremely satisfied. The team at Monte Travelers were very responsive. My guide Dimitrije was courteous, knowledgeable, and making sure I was getting the right Montenegrin experience. I’m happy I went with this company instead of driving since the roads are narrower than I’m used to and it can get crowded. Relax and go with the pros.

This scenic tour is a must when in Montenegro ! Kotor is a beautiful fortified old town and the way is built on the mountain over looking the Adriatic bay is quite impressive . Our guide Alex was very informative and he went out of his way to stop us at various stops on the way to enjoy the breathtaking views and take photos, he was an amazing personal guide we thoroughly enjoyed it. I highly recommend him he was so eager to give us as much information and history as he could during the day! He also stopped us for a tasting of their ham and cheese on the way to Budva as well as stopped to see the old capital cetinje which is also worth seeing.

On our cruise we booked the tour (near 7 hours) to explore overlooks on the way to Budva from the port in Kotor. The guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant and answered questions we asked. She had a tourism degree and her knowledge was evident. She shared the history of the area, the resort community old and new, the churches, squares and some about the people of both Budva and Kotor while we visited both Old Town areas. She mentioned some of the celebrities who have stayed there and who have given concerts and also spoke of the growing tourism in the area. Beautiful area with rich history and lots of interesting information and beautiful views.
