What to expect

On a day trip from Dubrovnik to the Bay of Kotor ( Boka Bay), we will visit two historical towns: Perast and Kotor. 

After crossing the border and a pleasant, forty-minute ride along the picturesque Bay of Kotor, we will arrive at the protruding part of the Bay where Perast is located. 

With its fair share of sights and interesting history, it is a popular stop on the way to Kotor. An extremely harmonious architectural ensemble testifies to the days of glory when the mighty Serenissima governed this town. The most interesting to visitors are the two islets just off the coast, one of which can be visited. 

The main destination of the trip to the Bay of Kotor is Kotor,
a UNESCO world heritage site nestled at the very end of the Bay. Here you will be taken on a private walking tour by a local guide*.
Afterwards, you'll also have free time to explore at your own pace.

*The service can be omitted if you are not interested in a private walking tour in Kotor.

It is a popular tourist destination, with many visitors, not rarely overcrowded due to the arrivals of cruise ships in the tourist season. However, when planning your trip to Montenegro from Dubrovnik, there are ways to reduce the impact of crowds on your visit and enjoy the experience.

  • Border crossings tend to be very busy during peak tourist season, major congestions happen in July and August, but with proper planning of the trip, there is a good chance to avoid longer queueing.

"Julija provides a 5 star service all around! From picking us up from the airport and transporting us to Dubrovnik, to the day trip to Montenegro (which was perfect), and also arranging to pick up my brother and sister-in-law at the airport too... by the end of it all, saying goodbye to her was like saying goodbye to a friend.

Her knowledge of the region is top-notch, which is normally to be expected, but what I didn't expect was the personal stories and the family history she shared with us that only someone who grew up there would be able to share. She is fantastic and I wouldn't visit the region without using her service!! Let's be honest, who doesn't want to be shuttled around by an awesome local in a black spotless Mercedes? We miss you Julija and the incredible Croatian sunsets! We'll be back and thank you for the amazing memories! ;)"
