Our guide (so sorry I can't remember her name) was excellent. She made sure we were comfortable in the vehicle and that we were cool/warm enough. She gave us interesting facts as we drove to our destinations. We stopped off at Perast for about an hour which was enough time. We then went to Kotor and we walked up to the fort where we had the most amazing views. We were there for about 2 hours but I would have liked another hour to explore the old town and then we had 2 hours in Budva which was also nice. I liked the fact that we had our own time in each place to explore in a way that suited us. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone as we all day a great day. We also got back at around 5.30/6pm which was perfect.

Had a lovely drive to Montenegro and back with a fabulous and entertaining driver. Andrew has a good skill to bring all the strangers together. We all had a good time and wonderful experience. Accidentally we also saw dolphins. The restaurant recommended in Budva, it is good, however the portions are really big. If you are not that hungry, would recommend to go to old town for a slice of pizza, there is sweet pizza as well, 2,50 a piece.

Fabulous well organised day, great opportunity to see the effects of the old Yugoslavia and what it is today

Nice excursion. The super friendly guide and the extraordinary sites we met Super recommended

Very pleasant trip. We would have liked to have had a little more time in Kotor.
