Private Tour: Montenegro Day Trip from Dubrovnik

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Begin the tour by getting picked up at your central Dubrovnik hotel and then head out of the city via comfortable air-conditioned vehicle. 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.

    Private tour is in a sedan. We had 2 but I am sure it can fit 1 more in the front very comfortably.

    Don't think it matters if it's a private tour. You should be able to arrange for pick up wherever. We did.

    GM. It’s a great tour but there are a lot of outdoor activities. I honestly would not recommend it if it rains. It’s also a long drive. Safe travels.
