This tour offers you a chance to visit 2 countries in one day and learn about their distinct cultures, geography and customs.

THIS TOUR IS 100% different than our Mostar and Herzegovina discovery tour – different sights, and different cultures so guests can easily book this tour and the Mostar tour and have two unique experiences.

The tour starts from Dubrovnik and after only 15 min drive we arrive at Bosnian border where we cross and drive through the Serbian part of Bosnia and Herzegovina (Republika Srpska). The first stop is the town of Trebinje, where we will first visit Gracanica Hill which has panoramic views of the whole Trebisnjica river valley and the Orthodox monastery of Hercegovacka Gracanica.

Upon descending down into the town of Trebinje we will pass through the old Turkish and 19.ct Austrian center of the town and give our guests short free time to browse through Trebinje’s everyday farmers’ market.

After Trebinje we continue to the Bosnia-Montenegro border and cross into Montenegro at Grab crossing following the trail down Orjen mountain massive to sea-level and the Bay of Kotor.

The tour continues through the Bay of Kotor passing villages Bijela, Kamenari, Morinj, Risan, with photo stop at the medieval city of Perast (possible to visit the enchanting island of Our Lady of the Rocks- please advise us beforehand).. Upon arrival to Kotor, once an independent city-state, and from 14.ct under Venetian influence, you would have time to explore its narrow streets, sunny squares and churches followed by time for lunch (optional).

After lunch, the tour will continue through Vrmac tunnel and passing the town of Tivat (luxury yacht marina resort of Porto Montenegro) we will take a short scenic ferry ride across Kotor Bay (about 10-15 min) continuing to the Montenegro-Croatian border and back to Dubrovnik (our driver will take the best direction to Dubrovnik, depending on border crossings waiting time).

Our trip with Mato was great! Travelling by car allowed us to see the beautiful landscapes of Croatia, Montenegro and Bosnia. This included the stunning scenery of Kotor Bay. It was fascinating to see the different cultures and hear from Mato about the history of the region.

Amazing day trip to Montenegro with a return to Dubrovnik via Bosnia. Filip was a fantastic guide and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to see some unique views. I did the Montenegro & Bosnia tour with Filip in September 2023 and it was an amazing day. Absolutely amazing sights, wonderful stops for coffee and for lunch. Filip is extremely knowledgeable and if you have the chance to book with him, please do! You won’t regret it!

and pickups were confirmed the day before. After a deposit, they only accept cash, so plan accordingly. The drivers were both great and were very professional. The answered so many questions, and gave us a lot of insight into the local culture and history. would definitely recommend this company. Notes on the sarajevo/mostar trip: - this is a long day, be well rested and prepared, started at 5:30am and ended at 8:00pm. thankfully the border crossing was quick and followed by a bakery pit stop then a cafe pit stop with an amazing view. - sarajevo is awesome and definitely the star of the show!! the included walking tour was great (sampled some amazing baklava, and saw some traditional live craft-making). we then had about 1.5 hours to piddle around old town and eat. wish we had more time here, lots to see and explore. vendors seemed very nice and relaxed. lots of shops with a nice atmosphere. shops accept euros and visit return either bosnian marks or euros. some accepted credit card. - mostar gave us mixed feelings, it was nice to see and walk through for a few minutes but everything was over priced, vendors were all on edge, and it was over crowded. we saw a stolen purse on the side of the road, be on alert. the views from the bridge are fantastic. a local on the bridge as taking spectator money to see his associate jump off the bridge. we walked down to the river to get a nice view of the bridge. i think in total we spent 30 minutes and needed to escape the heat and the smoke and crowds. there is one bathroom you could use for 50 cents deeper into town. Notes on the bosnia > montenegro trip - Trebinje is a really nice town, with 2 amazing orthodox churches! the one in town looked a lot nicer than the one on the hill. - perast was lovely to walk through for 15 mins; there was a shop which let us use their bathroom after a purchase. we arranged our own boat ride to the lady of the rock church (we took a bigger boat which left every 10mins and cost 10euro round trip for 2; some locals in small boats were offering 5 per person for 1 way) the church itself was anything but spiritual: too crowded/hot/cigarette smoke. one way entry/exit and long slow lines to move. not worth entering at all. they ask for 2 euros to enter. the ride itself was worth it for the views. the island felt like a hellish tourist trap. - port of montenegro was very scenic and we walked along it for a while and had an amazing local lunch here with our driver. - bay of kotor is surreal and the star of the show, amazing vistas - kotor old town was nice and you can get a good idea of it in a couple hours (we were dropped off there for the night). the included walking tour was a little rushed because we hit some traffic driving into old town; but it was good none the less.
Fun and knowledgable

driver for the day…he was very easy going and accommodating. At points on the trip, he asked if we had any preferences on what we wanted to do so it didn’t feel like we were rushing through the everything. There was plenty of down time so you could wander around and enjoy the sites. Also, everything went really smoothly for us when crossing country borders. Josip warned that at certain times, there could be long delays, but I guess we lucked out on that day. I would highly recommend this experience and ask for Josip ?

was exceptional telling us the rich history of the area, answering questions we had, explaining what to expect as we crossed borders, stopping for photo opportunities, driving with our safety in mind, showing us the best shops for pastries and coffee, consulting us on our preferences for tour destinations, and waiting until our next accommodation host was ready for us. The day went by so fast and we saw so much. We highly recommend both Miho and Doria Tours Dubrovnik. We wish we could have Milo as our guide on every trip.

I looked for a day trip to cover both Bosnia and Montenegro that would hopefully mean not being stuck for hours at border crossings at the height of summer - I found this trip which seemed to suit our purpose perfectly!

Ivo was our guide/driver and he was absolutley brilliant! He was entertaining and had great chit chat throughout and made us laugh a lot during the day but he also allowed us space to wander. We stopped frequently with the kids and had a lot of picture stops - enjoying the coffee and pastry and local market in Bosnia was a particularly lovely way to start the day. I was blown away by the scenery on this trip particularly in Perast and Kotor. Stunning scenery around the Bay of Kotor. The small towns were really pretty and we came away with some great memories. We were actually surprised at how stunning the scenery was! Its a long day and quite a bit of time is spent in the car but we had plenty of time to walk around, grab lunch and see the towns and take in the sights so it didnt feel as if we were in the car that much. The minibus (for 4 of us) was very clean and spacious and made the day a whole lot more comfortable - Ivo was a very safe driver. I would highly recommend this to take in both Bosnia and Montenegro!! Well worth it particularly if you get Ivo as your guide!! He will make you laugh!

After doing a lot of research for day trips outside of Dubrovnik I discovered Dubrovnik Day Tours and I was not disappointed. Originally I planned on doing their Mostar Day tour but my wife and I changed our plans

and inquired about a personalized and grueling trip to try to pack everything we could in. Dubrovnik Day Tours accommodated our request and we managed to do Montenegro and Mostar in Day! Our guide Goran was really friendly and knowledgeable and really gave us a fantastic day exploring the Balkans. He gave us great tips during our excursions for restaurants and taught us the proper way to drink a Bosnian coffee. He also brought us to interesting sites such as a medieval Bosnian cemetery and a Farmer's Market in Croatia where we got to sample fresh candies and liquors. Dubrovnik Day tours was definitely the best option for me and my budget. I recommend them and I recommended them to the hotel that I stayed at.
