What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

The whole tour was absolutely amazing, so quite difficult to highlight the best part, but the Durmitor National Park was spectacular, and my new friends and I were awestruck at the scenery, clicking away with our camera constantly, we walked through waterfalls, witnessed green glass like lakes and pine trees and much more. Kotor was beautiful, a fjord that was a good strategic area during the war, with its charming oldy worldy town, and had amazing views from both sides of the fjord. A stunning spectacular country.

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

Vesna was such an excellent Tour Leader who certainly knew her country, very knowledgable and spoke very good English. It was obvious that she loved her job, as she was very enthusiastic about the countryside, trekking and the different towns that we visited. Very aware of safety at all times also. She was also fun, friendly and charming. We had lots of laughs. Also Bobben our driver was lovely, friendly and drove very safely. Our Tour leader was one reason the tour was so successful.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

The last day we climbed vrmac, which is quite a steep side of the fjord,and we saw spectacular views on either side of the Kotor fjord, we did manage it ok and I did enjoy it, but coming down the other side was quite tricky as there were alot of bolders and trekking poles would have come in very handy for safety reasons.

Do You Have Anything Else To Add

Accomomdation and food were lovely, because we all got on so well as a group, and had so much fun, and our tour leader excellent, I will say this for me was the perfect tour.

1) The mountain walk at Durmitor - amazing and varied scenery and beautiful and diverse mountain flowers. 2) Kotor - difficult climb to the top, but well worth the amazing view 3) the boat trip back from Kotor to our hotel with two stops - amazing value at $10 each. 4) food - good, large portions and good value for money 5) swimming in the sea with massive yachts and cruise ships sailing past (at a safe distance!).

Brilliant. Spoke amazing English, even understanding the English humour! Very knowledgeable, a good sport and helpful.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

We were pretty fit before the trip and managed the climbs easily. I'd say get fit to really appreciate the holiday. We went in August during a heat wave, and in Kotor it was around 40deg C - be prepared.

Vist Montengro now whilst it is unspoilt and good value for money! Being small you pack in so many magnificent and different locations with only minimal minibus travel. This was my husbands's first trip with Explore. He had been nervous about going on a group holiday, but loved the people and realised how much you can pack in when you travel with Explore. The only down side was the very early start for the airport for the flight home, but the last location was well worth turning out of bed early!

The Tara Bridge and the Durmitor National Park experience.

Excellent English, continuous enthusiasm, great sense of humour, helpful, good historical knowledge. Was not so keen on discussing the ethnic conflicts of the 90s which was perhaps understandable.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

Just realise it can always rain in Montenegro although in summer it is usually sunny and warm especially on the coast.

Do You Have Anything Else To Add

In communist times we went to Cetinje and the Lovcen National Park and the mausoleum of Petar II Petrovic decending into Kotor by the 27 hairpin bend road built by the Austro-Hungarians. I felt this was a sad omission although I realise you have to consider cost and time factors

Tough choice - Kotor is a special place and the bay (yes it really is a fjord!) is magnificent. Durmitor NP has a genuine sense of unspoilt natural beauty - buy a cup of wild berries and stroll along the paths and lakesides. Mainly very good weather in September.

Always cheerful, never got lost, full of knowledge about everything we saw. Impossible not to share her enthusiasm and she always made certain that us old folk were still going.

Switch off your mobile phone and take a deep breath of fresh air. Good walking shoes and don't forget tp pack a few Mars bars.

We had a very good driver - I'm afraid I have forgotten his name but he was safe and a good character as well.

Igor Sestak our leader was certainly a larger than life character. His English was very good and he was very informative on the recent and past history and culture of the old Yugoslavia .  The Durmitor National Park is similar to the Dolomites with excellent walking and on the coast the Bay of Kotor was like a fiord with temperature in the upper 30's Good walking on the coastal hills.Went to Dubrovnik on our free day for 40 euros.  All in all an excellent trip that I would recommend to anyone.
