Reviews for Self guided walking holiday in Montenegro


review 27 Jul 2018

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

Stunning views and dramatic scenery each day; the most memorable was probably walking down the hillside near Kotor with the backdrop of the mountains and the bay in front.

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

Try to arrive early on the day of travel to orientate and do the first walk. Be self-sufficient - we did not see any other walkers one day and only 2 another and a similar number of cafes! Carry LOTS of water - we ran out when one descent took much longer than expected.

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

Clearly a benefit to the local people who acted as our chauffeurs, and to the guesthouse we stayed in. Montenegro has a modest economy so we contributed by going there and spending money on food accommodation and travel. Not sure how far we contributed to environmental impacts - we were walking but were chauffeured in some cases to/ from the walk and our bags were transported.

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

We had a very good time, it was quite demanding walking , with some of the paths giving out so that added some excitement. Excellent instructions and photos which were helpful and reassuring. We were very lucky with the weather and did not get wet. It wouldn't have been such fun if we had been drenched part way.
