Me and my partner had a wonderful time in our day trip to Montenegro, The bus was well air conditioned, the stops throughout the journey were amazing and the tour guide was very helpful in any questions we had, It is such a beautiful country and it is definitely worth visiting, I would love to go back some day!

People should get more details in advance how long they will stay in different places- we would have lunch at the beach in Budhva instead of of having it in Kotor. Tell people in advance only Euros are accepted in Montenegro- no Kunas

An amazing trip! We had a super host and she had such a great knowledge of the history and stops. Very comfortable journey with a small group. I would highly recommend this tour

Karla and Victor were amazing and despite border delay that interrupted our schedule it was a great day and I highly recommend it

We had a great day out in a beautiful country and the guide was excellent. The transport was really comfortable.
