    We could imagine that the views would be spectacular on a clear day. The day we went, it clouded up and we were in foggy conditions for the first part of the ride. The road is narrow and cars and buses are coming up as one's bike comes down. After a slight uphill climb, the rest is all downhill, so the challenge is slowing one's descent and avoiding upcoming traffic. The bikes were excellent and had very good disc brakes. Unfortunately, I hit the brakes too hard when a car was coming around one of the turns as I approached the same turn and I went over the handle bars and hit the pavement hard. I was injured from this fall -- skinned knee, skinned elbow, several bruises and a possible hip fracture. The guide did not provide even a bandage, although I was bleeding profusely from the elbow and knee. I was unable to complete the ride and had to follow my husband down in the guide's car holding kleenex on my bleeding wounds. My husband finished the ride without incident and said it was enjoyable but had no exercise value as it was literally all downhill. Care needs to be taken to go slow but not to brake too hard. The guide seemed to be in a hurry to drop us off at the end of the ride and as I mentioned did not provide any type of first aid when I fell. It is suggested that a first aid kit be carried in case of falls off the bike.

    Igor met us at the predetermined meeting spot and off we went. Up, up and up! He fixed us up with our bikes and gear and off we went, whizzing down the road at our own pace while he brought up the rear in the transport vehicle. We had one party member run out of steam and Igor kept them company in the van—and they were well cared for. Totally, 100% recommend this!

    The ride down the mountain was amazing (and safe). We started with a short ride up a slight incline and then proceeded to glide down the mountain with a guide in front and in back to keep us all safe and together. As we rode down we stopped a number of times to take in the scenery and take pictures. The bikes were all in great condition and the experience was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. I highly recommend this excursion, even if you are not a cycling enthusiast!

    The sights and views were fantastic, but there was excessive traffic on the day we toured buses needing to back up to make the turns. The guide said it was highly unusual. It was actually more scary going up in the van than going down on the bike!

    we had an absolute great time with Tommy and Igor. Weather cooperated and the ride down was fantastic. Great photo opps along the way. We highly recommend!

    This was a highlight of our trip. We loved Kotor and especially the views and the ride down the mountain on this tour. If you love to ride a bike, don't mind a little traffic and your not afraid to be a little daring, take this tour. Bikes provided were in excellent condition. I'm a 60-year-old woman and I was ahead of the pack. It was great.

    Great guys leading the tour. They took video of my son and I, promised to send it to us, took our email and all....but never got it.

    Amazing views, but be prepared for a little disorganization and scramble. We were expecting a more organized tour that maybe starts in the city with the mausoleum, provides lots of small breaks with free water and snacks, etc. Instead it was a pretty fast zoom down with three look-out spots, with ill-fitting bikes. We were also very anxious because the end time is not very clear, given you may be with very slow or very fast other tourists, etc. On the other hand, the truck follows so you feel safe from any passing cars and Charles was a great tour guide--very friendly and informative. We were down in about 3 hours--1 hour drive up, 2 down.

    A fabulous trip - Bojan took us to the top and guided us down the mountain by driving ahead of us to ensure we were safe with the on coming cars. The scenery is awesome and you get the best views of the Montenegrin country side you could ever wish for. There were plenty of stops along the way for photos opportunities and drinks stops. An exhilarating ride suitable for capable riders. Bojan, one of the company owners, wants you to have a great time and wants to showcase his country and culture in a fun atmosphere whilst still keeping it very professional. Would book any tour offered with Montenegro as the 2 we did were fantastic. Thanks Bojan for your fun and informative hospitality!

    We had an amazing day and our guides Charles, Tim and Brendan were really terrific and accommodating. The bikes were wonderful and we loved it all. Thank goodness we didn't have to drive up Lovćen - it was much nicer to ride down!
