MONTENEGRO DAY TRIP FROM DUBROVNIK

Scott and I figured while in Croatia let’s hop over to another country for the day.  We are happy we went but we wish we went on a shorter trip.  We found the long all day trip in a stuffy van very hard to deal with – the van had low A/C and it was hot and the seats had no leg room – so it was really a bit of a grueling drive.  I can’t even imagine how it is in the summer. I recommend guests to stop at the first stop of this tour or get a private driver to take to you the first stop so you can see the Bay of Kotur.  In Dubrovnik there is so much to see and so many islands to see – I think going to Montenegro is nice but I would say spend half the time we dedicated to this because some of the stops weren’t spectacular. The first stop definitely was amazing and worth the trip. The price is right it isn’t expensive it is just not the most comfortable adventure – so if you do it I would say spend the extra money and get a private coach so you can have leg room and A/C and you can stop where you want to stop.

We enjoyed a drive around Kotor Bay  and then stopped at  Perast which was really pretty – we took a boat across to CHURCH OUR LADY ON THE ROCKS. Then we went to the medieval city of KOTUR which was really beautiful – if you have time you can climb the walls there which would be a good workout.  We walked around a bit and got a snack. We then got back on the bus and went to Budva which was nice but not worth driving that far unless you have a lot of time on your journey. We had about a week in Croatia so I wish we just spent more time there.
