This Kotor day tour visits the most popular sites in Montenegro including:

After meeting your guide, you'll drive along the coast to the village Perast. This small town is a beautiful example of baroque architecture.

In Perast you have a short walk among buildings and villas which were built during the city's prosperous years of the 17th and 18th centuries. 

After your walk in Perast you take a short boat trip to the island of Our Lady of the Rocks. This man-made Island was built by scuttling old ships and depositing stones around a small crag. Upon returning from each successful voyage, sailors laid a rock in the bay. Over time, the islet gradually emerged from the sea. You'll have a guided tour of the church and adjoining museum which has a lot of artifacts from the area dating back to prehistoric times.

Next you drive to Sveti Stefan, where you'll have a chance to take photos of one of Montenegro's top attractions.

Then it's on to the ancient town of Budva, which is over 2,500 years old and one of the oldest settlements on the Adriatic coast. While you are in Budva you have free time for lunch before you go on a walking tour of the town.
