Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Begin the full-day trip to Montenegro at Gruz Port, Dubrovnik’s ‘new’ port, located in the northern part of the city, or start with a pickup from your hotel. As the comfortable air-conditioned coach snakes along the gorgeous seaside highway in a southernly direction, enjoy the views of the shimmering sea and learn from your guide about the history and culture of Montenegro.

After crossing the border, encounter the Bay of Kotor, flanked by towering craggy mountain and dotted with bay-side medieval villages. Ride through Risan, one of the most ancient settlements on the bay. Learn how how Queen Teuta, monarch of the Illyrian dynasty, once fought off the mighty Romans. From there, ride on to gorgeous Kotor, a UNESCO-protected town tucked away within a fjord. In Kotor, enjoy free time to explore the Cathedral of St. Typhon or the city walls.

Hop back on the bus and after reaching the medieval walled seaside town of Budva, hop off the bus and take some more free time for exploring. Lounge on the beautiful beach, wander the streets, sit down for a seafood lunch (at own expense), and gawk at the plus-sized yachts in the marina.

In the late afternoon, reunite with your guide. After a short bus ride north, board a ferry for a trip across the Bay of Kotor. Finally, get dropped off back at Dubrovnik’s Gruz port or at your hotel in Dubrovnik.

Traveler Tips


  • "Crossing the border can be rather time consuming, so be prepared to sit at the border between 30 minutes to an hour and a half." See review
  • "Given the amount of travel that's done throughout the day, it would be impractical to spend any longer in either location." See review

I was expecting this trip to be great but not necessarily excellent. It surpassed my expectations. The guide was average, but it is worth the trip for the amazing views. You definitely have enough time to climb up to the church or beyond and look down on the city. Allow a few more minutes to get down as the rocks are very slippery. The border crossing can take longer, so just bring some headphones to chill out during this part of the trip.

Great way to see the highlights of Montenegro. It has so much natural beauty and Kotor has amazing scenery and really nice Old Town. If you are in shape I would highly recommend walking the steps to the fortress the views are incredible. I would however take the steps to the top and take the same route back down...the path on the other side is quite treacherous. And for sure don’t do it in inclement weather the stones would be so slippery...some people wearing sandals were slipping on a dry sunny day when we were there. Have plenty of patience at the border....because it takes a long time and it just is what it is but you will relax more if you know this and just bring a book along or listen to music:) All in all a great trip!!

Beautiful...but

The parts of Croatia and Montenegro we saw during our trip were beautiful. There were breathtaking views throughout our journey and interesting old sites to visit. The trip around Kotor Bay was picturesque, with majestic mountains and endless water to gaze at. Kotor Old Town has lots of gift shops and things seemed very inexpensive (we had three drinks in a cafe for under €5) Budva is very pretty, again with lots of gift shops and delicious looking restaurants (we saw a place that had strawberry, banana and chocolate pizza!). You can walk a few steps right to beach from the old town. We had expected the tour to include some more historical information about the sites we visited. Our guide gave us a lot of information on the bus about Montenegro generally but we like to learn about the things we are looking at as we see them. We would have preferred more time in Budva and less in Kotor old towns. Crossing is the border is boring. It takes at least 1.5hours in each direction. I know we got off lightly and we realise this cannot be avoided but it would be good if this time was spent learning about the places being visited on the trip or building some rapport between the group. It would be good if there was something in the advert to tell you to bring something to do while you are waiting. Also to explain there is no working toilet on the coach (rather than a bucket). We also noticed that people were made to feel a bit guilty if they were the last back to the coach, even if they were still early. On the whole the trip was worthwhile (our group has spilt views about whether we would go again) but it is a very long way to go on a coach for one day, so our advice is to be prepared (with activities and treats!). Thank you for taking us.

The Montenegro day trip from Dubrovnik was really good considering that it is just a DAY trip. We saw quite a lot, our guide was extremely knowledgeable and views were gorgeous. The only thing that I would complain about is that they really should inform people on the reservation page that during the summer's high season crossing the borders takes A LOT of time. Like three hours both ways, just waiting in the bus. So the length of our trip was something like 16 hours, not 11/12 or whatever they say on the web page.

Great day trip! It's a long day but worth it. We found we had time to do everything we wanted in Kotor and Budva. A little longer in Kotor and less time in Budva would be better but still we had a great day. Our guide was good and helpful, good balance of info and time to ourselves.

Great day out

The day was exactly as described. The local tour operator contacted us and confirmed pick up time at our hotel. We were collected promptly and driven to meet the coach. We had a lovely knowledgeable guide with us all day, although as expected, we were left to explore on our own in Kotor and Budva. Kotor was the obvious place for lunch, so we could have done with a little longer to explore, but it was such a warm day that getting back to the air conditioned coach was welcomed (and we did have time to wander and visit part of the walls and a coup!e of churches). Recommend for a snapshot of Montenegro.

We loved our trip to Montenegro, Elite Travel did an excellent job and I would recommend them to anyone. Well organized, excellent guide and driver. Kotor was amazing and we wish we could of stayed a full day just there, the stop after was a beach resort with a small medieval town as well . We loved the full day trip. Bus was very comfortable with air cond that worked very well, on a scale of 1-10 I give it a 10 . Thank you for a memorable and fun experience.
