This excursion was a blast! Andrea (or maybe Andreas) was awesome. We brought our mom who was clearly nervous about the tour and he was so patient. He is a native with deep roots in the area and was so open to share his culture with us. The tour culminates in a small village at the top of the mountain with only 4 permanent residents. There is a small (very old church) at the top that is still in operation and a local resident who feeds you homemade bread, Pomegranate juice, vegetables from his garden, and local cheese. As you sit on his deck, you can overlook the bay below and the view is stunning. Montenegro overall is just absolutely beautiful but this experience was really lovely. It was fun to be among locals and get a feel for their culture, history, politics, etc. Really awesome. Luka, the tour organizer was also awesome. So communicative! I hope to go back and spend more time with them all! One note, the jeep ride is quite steep but our guide was very skilled. Also wear sneakers

I picked a tour from this company because of the description, that we'd learn more about how Kotor lives and breathes, and our guide Nikola totally delivered! I really appreciated that. We took 3 tours in different cities along that coast line during our cruise, and this was the only one I can say we got a solid glimpse of the people and culture there. Thank you Nikola!

It was very exciting and adventurous. Milan is an excellent driver. The off road route is very exciting. Ultimately, the reward awaits upstairs. Beautiful views and a lot of history, all this is rounded off with a delicious lunch of local ham and cheese and a drink of your choice.

We had a fantastic time the driver was very attentive and patient with us seeing we where on the older side of life, beautiful views and a lovely light lunch bit of a climb but so worth it

A unique experience with a particularly nice guide. The jeep ride through the terrain remains a fond memory and the snack on the mountain will never be forgotten. We recommend!
