Please book this excursion, if in Croatia. Montenegro was like visiting a fairytale land. My guide Alex was the best. I’m glad I got to have him as my guide. He drove his comfortable vehicle safely, he was courteous and I felt like he was enjoying the visit just as I was. You have to take your passport because you have to cross the border. I’m glad I took advantage of the opportunity.

Excellent experience with our wonderful and knowledgeable guide Marija who is quite passionate of what she does and did an excellent job. This is indeed a unique opportunity to discover another country in a nutshell and to know about the rich history of this region. I would strongly recommend her and thanks a lot for everything :-)

For the cost, this tour was good. The guide was very kind and informative, and the driver was great. There is a 1 euro fee at the tourist centre in Kotor that seemed dubious. Otherwise, the time spent at each location was sufficient. The sites visited were absolutely charming!

Highly highly recommended. This tour combines both GoT tidbits with stories about the rich history of the region. You can’t go to this area and not learn about the real history. Our guide was knowledgeable about both; she had her own anecdotes about when GoT was being filmed.

Amazing trip and very complete, able to visit two cities. Spent a wonderful day in Montenegro.
