I highly recommend Nomad Tours Montenegro. They promised me a “perfect balance between exploration, exhilaration and relaxation” on my 7-day Classic Tour and they delivered! As a matter of fact, they exceeded my expectations! Small group, BIG adventures is spot on!
We did it all! Hiking to fortresses, strolling around beautiful glacier lakes, visiting a 2000+ year old olive tree, tasting wine with VIP treatment in a mind-blowing family-owned winery, eating the delicious local cuisine, driving panoramic routes through enchanted forests and fields of wildflowers, experiencing the unique ambience and spiritual power of the many monasteries scattered throughout the country, getting an adrenaline rush ziplining over the deepest canyon in Europe, crossing over Tara bridge (one of the 20 most beautiful bridges in the world), exploring underground and underwater caves, sailing the breathtaking Boka Bay, speed boating to Kotor Bay (one of the most beautiful bays in the world), ambling through the coastal town of Kotor, and soaring like a bird while paragliding over Budva.
I have been on many organized tours and this was definitely one of my favorites for many reasons: 1) Ease of booking, preparation, and great communication. I booked at the last minute, but they were still able to accommodate me and get me all of the detailed information I needed to ensure I had a great trip. 2) Their itineraries offer a wide range of options for all ages. It is also accommodating based on weather as well as your interests, energy level and mood. 3) They will take you off the beaten track to the hidden jewels and get you embedded in the culture by meeting the locals and eating the delicious national cuisine. (Not all tour operators do this and let’s face it, that is usually WHY we travel to other countries.) 4) Excursions, restaurants, wineries, routes and hotels are carefully researched (watchdogged) and handpicked to ensure they offer top-notch service and keep you away from the crowds. You will experience comfort, cleanliness, and safety along with friendly staffs, great locations and wonderful, fresh meals. 5) Unlike many other tours where you start the day off extremely early and spend 10-12 hours in the car to get to an attraction our days started at 0900 and usually ended around 1700 or 1800. We never spent more than 3 hours in the car and everyday was full of fun and adventure! 6) The staff!! Kudos to Palve, the executive manager and my guide! Not only is he a wealth of information and can tell you anything you want to know about Montenegro (culture, history, religions, politics, demographics, weather…anything) he will make you feel like family and that you are a Montenegrin. Funny, well-connected, smart, professional, caring, helpful (always helping me up and down steep steps and carrying my luggage), a skilled/patient driver (I never felt stressed in the car like I have on other tours), flexible, and friendly. You really can’t ask for more in a guide. Also, a shout out to the CEO, Sinisa, who even came to great me a couple of times when I was in Podgorica!! What a team!
It is no wonder Montenegro has become one of the TOP Tourist destinations in the last couple of years. This tiny little country offers it all! A dark blue sea with beautiful beaches, intriguing islets, and turquoise coves. Majestic mountains with crystal clear rivers, deep canyons, huge freshwater lakes, and colorful valleys. It’s breathtaking wild beauty will surely steal your heart like it did mine. To get the full experience with zero stress, book with Nomad Tours today and you can thank me later!
