Honestly couldn't recommend this tour with the Guide Novak any less. Novak made the day informative, fun and worth the memories. His knowledge of the History of Montenegro as well as the local areas was exceptional. The country is stunning and all the locations we visited Novak had hundreds of years of history to tell us about or fun anecdotes about the area. The route is well planned out and gives you an incredible highlight of the area and locations based in that area of Montenegro. The winery was also amazing. Picturesque nestled in to the hill. You do wonder a bit whether there has been a wrong turning as driving up feels you are being driving up a track into the middle of nowhere and then all of a sudden a little village pops out and in the middle was Garnet Winery. The owner greeted us with all home made or locally produced food and the wine was really good. Even for someone who isnt a wine drinker! He explained how he makes each batch in terms that are easy to understand and you can tell his passion. The views along Old Road across Lake Skadar tied in nicely with the history Novak had told us about as we had explored Old town in Ulcinj. recommend if your a photographer buff to take your camera as the pictures you can take are backdrop worthy. Over all it was so worth it this trip and have already recommended it to any friends and family that i thinking about making the trip the Montenegro.
