    It took 90 minutes to cross into Montenegro though it was much quicker coming back to Croatia. The island boat trip was nice and Kotor was interesting with plenty of places to eat.

    The drive to Montenegro was A1the views were magnificent ,getting pass the borders was a treat although we were told you can get long delays we did not either way. The guide we had for tour of old city was the most enjoyable chap we had for the entire 5 week tour. The time we had in old city was fine a quick tour then plenty of time to do our own viewing. A great day a must if you have a spare day.

    We spent nearly 6 hours on a bus to spend 20 minutes in the church and three hours on Kotor. It really should be advertised this way. This was a complete waste of one of our two days in Dubrovnik. On Kotor we were handed over to a local guide for a tour. He had no microphone and he was very hard to hear. We ended up leaving the tour to go to lunch as it was already 2pm. There were no breaks for bathrooms built in when we were on either island or on the 3 hour bus ride back. This was an awful trip!

    Beautiful scenery and sights, both natural and man made. Really worthwhile doing this tour if you have only a day for Montenegro. Only problem was we had to wait a long time for lunch, so maybe bring some snacks and water.

    Expect delays at the boarder crossing. We sat in the bus for 1/1/2 hours.
    Montenegro is beautiful. We especially enjoyed the short ferry ride. It was amazying to watch our coach board the ferry.
    The prices of food was reasonable 15 euros for mussels, fish and wine.
    Don't expect to use Kuna. The shop ONLY accept euros.
    We had to visit an ATM.

    Our guide was inattentive. As soon as the bus doors were open she was gone. This might have worked for a small group but we had a big coach to unload and one gentleman using a cane. So by the time we all got off the bus half of us had to search for the guide. The guide was notably predisposed to German over English adding to the feeling that we didn't know what was going on. Long waits at the border, which required the engine to be shut off, resulted in a sweltering bus, especially toward the rear. By the time the rear of the bus got somewhat cooler the front was complaining of the cold. Had we known of situation at the border we would have taken a much smaller or even an individual tour 50 passports had to be collected and scanned for each bus in line. Driver was excellent. Lady of the Rock church lovely and interesting. Local guide in Kotor was good.
