Next you drive back along the coastal road to Budva old town. Budva is one of the oldest settlements on this side of the Adriatic and the town’s history goes back some 2,500 years.
Now, it's a bustling tourist resort surrounded by gorgeous beaches. Here, you take a walking tour through the town’s ancient alleyways and can enjoy the views from the lookout points that look out over the Budva Riviera Sveti Nikola island.
After some free time to explore or take dip on that inviting beach in front of the old town, you head back to Kotor, where you have a walking tour that includes the top sights around the town including:

"Tour was great. Ana did an excellent job showing us the different sites in Budva and Kotor. She took her time walking the old town of Kotor while explaining the history. She also provided and great suggestion for our late lunch. It was a plus that she had a driver which enabled her to talk freely without worrying about the road. I highly recommend this tour with Ana." - Joseph Wright, USA
