I booked this trip via their website and asked for the day trip to the Ostrog Monastery on 15th September. As this was a day out I thought the price very reasonable, considering the current situation, so we had the guide to ourselves! Igor collected us at our apartment and brought us back to the apartment afterwards. Igor is most pleasant, funny and extremely knowledgeable, regarding the history of Montenegro. It is obvious that he is passionate about history and he told us all the stories and legends of all the places that we passed along the way. When we mentioned where we had been and where we were going, he volunteered additional information regarding things to look out for, which he didn't need to do. The monastery itself is magnificent and a lot of the traditions were explained to us and we spent most of our time at the upper monastery, which was built into the rockface! On our way back to Kotor we stopped at a traditional restaurant, where we had knuckle (knee) of beef and lamb cooked the traditional way. This was accompanied by a traditional salad and washed down with homemade wine, which was delicious. Just by the way, lunch is not included in the tour and we were taken there because our conversation about where we had been turned to food and Igor asked if we would like to stop for a late lunch. If you love history and local traditions then this trip is for you!

Budva is a must see for anyone traveling in the region. Its an "old town" with a wonderful past. The night time entertainment in the city is great too but start your day with a city tour. Its worth the cost and will blow your mind...or just boggle it.

My heart is full of the gratitude for the amazing experience! Pava and Slavko did their best to provide me with the perfectly customized tour. Despite COVID-related restrictions and public holidays (I travelled to Montenegro in this early January) I visited a lot of interesting towns, museums and art galleries. When some place turned out to be closed because of the new restrictions Pava and Slavko would promptly found some other interesting nearby attraction. The culmination came while visiting the Lady of the Rock church. Especially for me Slavko managed to call the only employee and he kindly interrupt his Christmas holiday to provide us with the boat and sail to the island. He opened doors and I couldn't believe my eyes seeing all this rich and beautiful interior. No shortcomings, no regrets, no fail: again, my experiences were only positive.

This was a great tour, and our guide, Darko, was exceptionally knowledgeable. We would strongly recommend this tour. Our only issues were that we needed more bathroom breaks, and those in the backseat had considerable trouble hearing the guide while he was driving. Regardless, we would recommend this to all Montenegro travelers. Wear/take layers - can be chilly!

If you are lucky enough to get him as your tour guide you will agree with me that he is one interesting man on this planet! He went above and beyond, even making additional pit stops.
