Enjoy a one-day tour (private up to 4 persons or small group up to 8 persons) to Montenegro and Albania. During this tour you will visit four different countries, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Albania. Shkoder, historically known as Scodra, is a city in the Republic of Albania near the border between Montenegro and Albania. It is about three and a half hours of comfortable drive away from Dubrovnik. During the ride to Shkoder enjoy the beautiful nature of Herzegovinian and Montenegrin hinterland. Budva is a Montenegrin town on the Adriatic Sea, former bishopric and present Latin Catholic titular see. Our vehicles Mercedes E class (4 persons) and Volkswagen Caravelle (8 persons) are equipped with wi-fi, air conditioning, and Mercedes V class (7 persons) with refrigerator, and our drivers speak fluent English.
During this tour you will visit four different countries, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Albania. Departure time from Dubrovnik is at 8:00 am and we will cross the border with Bosnia and Herzegovina after 20 minutes of driving. After a half-hour drive through Eastern Herzegovina, we will reach the Montenegro border. We will drive you through the inland of Montenegro to the capital of Podgorica, and then to the border with Albania and its city of Shkoder. The Shkoder region that today corresponds to the city territory was founded in the 4th century BC by the ancient Illyrian tribes of the Ardiaei and Labeates. It is evidenced by the artefacts and inscriptions that were discovered in the Rozafa Castle. Entrance fees to the Rozafa castle and its museum are included. After a visit to the castle and the museum you will have one hour of your free time which you can spend in city sightseeing. After Shkoder we will return to Montenegro and visit the coastal city of Budva where you will have about one and a half hours of free time to visit the old town and shopping. Budva is 2500 years old city, which makes it one of the oldest settlements on the Adriatic coast. The Old Town of Budva is situated on a rocky peninsula, on the southern end of Budva field. Archaeological evidence suggests that Illyrian settlement was formed on the site of the Old Town before Greek colonization of the Adriatic. After Budva we will drive you along the Montenegrin coast to Tivat, then we'll take a ferry to the other coast of Boka-Kotorska Bay and then to the border with Croatia. Expected return to Dubrovnik is around 10:00 pm.
