The pick-up was smooth and the entire crew are very friendly and welcoming. Me and my partner enjoyed the time and service provided. The grilled fish is great except that they could have made it less salty, but this is partially my fault because they did ask for my dietary preference and I missed to mention it. They had this really amazing garlic oil sauce (not sure what to call it), that made the food even better. I like that they gave us much freedom on how we want to spend our time in each island in a given time frame. My partner preferred that some background and fun facts about the islands were mentioned during the trip. Overall it was a great experience.
We were picked up very promptly by our driver/guide Martel in a clean minivan. There were only 5 of us on the trip in total therefore we crossed over the border extremely quickly and were in Montenegro literally less than an hour after being picked up. Martel was extremely friendly and offered lots of information about Montenegro. He recommended a lovely restaurant in Budva called Restaurant Jadran which my husband and I really enjoyed. We enjoyed visiting 3 towns in one trip so we could see more of Montenegro.
Our guide, Desa was really nice and we enjoyed our tour of the city walls with her. We learned a lot of things about the history of Dubrovnik, local stories and she also told us about the filming locations of GOT ( for us it was enough and we did not book another tour for that). She also recommended us things to do and places to eat so do not hesitate to ask for tips. The tour was worth its money as its a great way to find out the short history of the town and its close surroundings.
She was excellent and knowing the history of the wall made all the difference. However I have to say I think Dubrovnik hast lost its soul and hardly any Croatians live in the city. Everything has been converted to airbnbs. Sad but I would not return nor recommend coming to anyone.
Our guide Dessa was fantastic, with great sense of humour. She provided us with tips for other trips, great places to eat and have an ice cream. The tour itself was spectacular, with great views. Very much recommended.
