Montenegro is less than an hour away from Dubrovnik which means you have more time outside the bus! We had stops at Perast (to see the Lady of the Rocks), Kotor and Budva. The seafood restaurants in Budva are amazing so please don’t miss it! Also, Budva is where you can have a swim. This day trip in Montenegro made us decide to go for a separate holiday there soon.

Tour was perfect. It was full day tour, but everything was so good planed, that we really enjoyed it. We had so much stop, but ir was perfect in time. Our guide Luka did everything super. He knows how to make your tour memorable. I recommend 360Monte agency for everyone!

We did a day trip to Montenegro from Croatia. The bay and the mountains surrounding it are stunning and the guide was hilarious in the best way possible. Would have stayed more in Kotor and skipped Budva though.

Loved visiting all these little towns. Montenegro is beautiful and the guide was super knowledgeable and gave us so much information. I really had a good time meeting other travelers

It was a great trip! Highly recommend! Bring your swimsuit if it’s a hot day.
