We wanted a day tour to Montenegro from Dubrovnik, but had to return before 6pm for a business dinner. The bus tours had a 7pm return. I contacted Tom Tours and Tomislav suggested a driver and the perfect itinerary. Prompt email responses to my questions, good, knowledgeable driver, good vehicle, reasonable price. (Sounded so good we decided to hire a driver when in London to take us to the Cotswolds, but it was 2-3 times the price!) Our English-speaking driver Ivan met us near Pile Gate since we were staying inside the walls, stashed our bags in the trunk, and took us to our next hotel on Babin Kuk after the tour, saving us a cross-town cab. All choices were ours, and we had time to walk all over Budva, Kotor, and Herceg Novi, and at the end of the day Ivan even treated us to a drink at a wonderful historic mill/restaurant after circling the Bay of Kotor. Crossing the border (where locals, not tour busses, cross) was a snap. I suggested taking photos of Dubrovnik from the main road, but Ivan took us to the top of the hill (funicular stop) above the town for a more spectacular shot. WOW! We had a great day---no prepayment required. SO easy to work with!
