1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Most memorable was the excellent hospitality offered to us by the team. They went out of their way to make our holiday the best it could be.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

If you have children and are doing the Tara River rafting, take your own water shoes and wetsuits. They have nothing to fit children. Horseriding is not a suitable activity for children under the age of 12 - 15yrs. They provided ill-fitting helmets and the stirrups couldn't be shortened to a suitable length which made riding for our 7 and 9 yr olds very difficult. Choose another activity alternative.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, I could see that the operator actively employed local people for their activities.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

We had a wonderful time and would love to re-visit Montenegro.

review 18 Aug 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

We loved the cycling tour day in Durmitor which included taking the ski-lift and then climbing to the top of Savin Kuk through swathes of alpine flowers, then cycling along quiet back roads with the mountains always in view, to a lake for swimming, where flocks of sheep were being shepherded by on the other side. At the coast, it was HOT for us pale and weedy Scots so getting into the water was blissful. I loved sitting up front on the sailing boat Manta, glass of rosé wine in hand, dangling my feet over the side as we scudded along heading back to port in the late afternoon. Stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, rafting down the river Tara, the boat trip to Kotor and Perast, a traditional Montenegrin meal, the longest zip-line in Europe – they were all great experiences. But really it was Stan and Goca, Lara and Dimitri, Evgenia, Misha (our fellow guests), Goran, Natasha, Ilya, Ljubo, Alexa, Blaj (our instructors and guides) who made the holiday so memorable.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Be prepared for cold and wet weather in the mountains - it can happen and we experienced it for a couple of days before it turned beautifully warm and sunny.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

All the activity providers were local people running their own small businesses.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Great, a real mix ox experiences. Montenegro does exactly what it promises – the mountains are everywhere, from the high peaks of Durmitor to the fjord of the Bay of Kotor. A huge thank you to Stan and Goca for organising our holiday in Montenegro. They are the warmest, most hospitable and obliging hosts and we really appreciate everything they did, particularly Goca’s home-made cheese pie with filo pastry for breakfast, and her fabulous raspberry jam.
