We had a full day private tour with Peter our driver and guide. Peter was very knowledgeable on the area and was also able to choose smaller roads for the border crossing this resulted in no long wait !! This is a long day so doing the private tour was a great option , beautiful scenery and visiting the old town of Kotor is interesting. Unfortunately there was 2 Cruise ships in harbour on the day we were there so it was very crowded in The Old Town, which is only small. We had a little side trip at the end , as we had time, Peter drive us up to the lookout in Dubrovnik (where the cable car goes) and it was a real treat! Great day out

This was a great day. Our driver, Tomislav, was a great guide and talked to us about the history of the countries and towns as we drove us. For the history buffs among us, it was great. We stopped in Perast, which wasn't really worth the trip, but then went on to Cotar in Montenegro, which was. We had 90 minutes there to eat lunch and walk around the old city. It was great and worth the drive. We did get stuck at the border coming back, sitting for nearly an hour in the van. That's not his fault, of course, but just something to consider. We would recommend this trip to those want a day trip.

Adam, our driver was exceptional. I think he’s a certified genius. His knowledge of history was extraordinary and he had a great sense of humor. This was an excellent private tour for 8. I would heartily recommend to anyone who desires a day trip to Montenegro.

an extremely friendly and knowledgeable guide. you just have to avoid taking this activity on a Saturday because there are big traffic jams at the borders that day

Beautiful places worth seeing, we are delighted with Montenegro. We recommend the company organizing the trip, our favorite guide - Adam.
