Tour was to include the Lovcen National Park, however the guide advised we would not do while on the tour. The food provided and venue for the snack was poor. The guide was boring and actually left 2 people at the King Nicholas Homesite. One of the passengers on our bus advised her to stop as the people were trying to get the bus to stop. There was little time left for the Kotor city tour. Would not recommend this trip with this guide. Read Less

A lot of time climbing the mountain on bus, around an hour in town on top of mountain, a ham/cheese/coke stop for restrooms of a few minutes. Dropped off between ship and old town just as pouring rain came on. OK but had I known of the mountainside road climb would probably have just confined my visit to the Old Town.and skippedthe tour.

This tour was the only one that we booked with NCL and we didn't enjoy it at all. Firstly we were one of many ( 30 + on our bus ) and about 5 buses all doing the same tour - the best of montenegro .It really lacked the personal insight from the guide ( she did her best but her audio machine didn't work and we couldn't use the audio guides ) we climbed the mountains ( with some 25+ hairpin turns ) up to firstly a hotel which provided us with a meal and drink ( all 5 buses arrived at the same time and it was a nightmare collecting your food and then finding a table ) we then visited Cetinje the former capital which as a complete waste of time - the town has little to offer. After this we drive back to Kotor ( of the 6 1/2 hour tour i think we spent over 3 hours in the bus ) and on the way passed by the gorgeous town of Bodva ( a seaside beach town which we would have loved to explore ) by the time we arrived in kotor we only had about 20 minutes of our tour left so the guide quickly showed us a couple of points of interest in the gorgeous old town of kotor and then left us to explore on our own which by the way was fascinating ! a very disappointing tour from NCL .

The organisation in the theatre for the trips is bad and the route to get off the ship tortuous but the tender process was ok. We travel by coach to village and took a boat to an island, to visit church and museum all very picturesque, after time on our own and delay due to inconsiderate late fellow passengers (no apology) we returned to Kotor and the guide took us around the town, it was very hot and we did not stay out but returned to the ship..

The Grand Montenegro Tour was boring....we did have poor weather though which meant the views up high were covered in cloud so we couldn't see anything. This was the major part of the tour climbing the mountain in a tour bus with no views. The guide was informative but had quite a thick accent and monotonous voice which found me tuning out at times. We had a snack and drink at a restaurant up the top and a chance to buy some local products in some market stalls set up for the tourists. The Budva walk tour was hindered by terrible ear sets, circa 1980 and most of the time we couldn't hear the guide- so just gave up on the commentary and followed the tour guide like sheep. Had an ok lunch at a bikie bar with fabulous company. Was happy to board the ship at the end of the day. Read Less

After a terrifying hairpin ride up the mountain, we had the most beautiful view of the port of Kotor and Old Town. We went to a small mountain village and had a local beverage and snack before descending the mountain. Iva, our guide, was the best! Very funny and offered a lot of insight into life in Montenegro. We also visited the palace of the last king of Montenegro and had a walking tour of the Old Town. Again, very small and easy walking. Lots and lots of cats everywhere that politely posed for pictures. Read Less
