Budva is quite different from Kotor due to its geographical position with lots of sandy beaches and a beautiful town. Nearby, only 7 km away from Budva, is Sveti Stefan, a traditional village that has been converted into a luxury hotel. Several former royal houses connected by the royal Milocer Park and the island of Sveti Stefan make this place a unique and world-famous tourist destination. The excursion has 3 parts. First is a cable car to Mt Lovcen, the second is a visit to the old town of Budva and the third is a boat ride from the old town of Budva to St.Stefan and Milocer Park. The boat ride passes by the island of St. Nicola, the biggest island in Montenegro. The tour lasts 8 hours, which is more than enough time to fill yourself with the pure beauty of all places that we will visit. Welcome:)
WHEN AND WHERE WILL WE START?
The tour departs from Kotor at 8:00 in the morning, which is the standard time for all our trips. The departure point in Kotor is from the ECO petrol gas station next to the main bus station.

WHERE WE WILL GO?
We will go to-Cable Car from Kotor to Mt. Lovcen, The Old Town of Budva, St. Stefan (Sveti Stefan), and Milocer Park.
CABLE CAR FROM KOTOR TO MT.LOVCEN
After picking up the guests we will start our tour by Trojica Pass, which is a scenic road where we will make the photo stop above the Bay of Kotor. The old town of Kotor is located hidden at the end of Boka Bay surrounded by two mountains Lovcen and Vrmac, which give it exceptional uniqueness. Everyone who visits Kotor is left breathless due to the beauty and splendid surroundings of this city.
We will have 10 minutes for a photo stop and then we will descend a few kilometers to the cable car. The route of the cable car starts from the locality of Dub, in the municipality of Kotor, in the immediate vicinity of the entrance to the road tunnel that connects Kotor with Tivat. The route leads to the locality of Kuk on the Lovćen mountain.
The location of Dub terminal is located within Grbaljsko polje, 200 meters from the Budva and Tivat road and 500 meters from Tivat airport. The location of the Kuk terminal is on the Kuk plateau on the Lovćen mountain, at 1,348 meters above sea level. The height difference between the starting and ending stations will be 1316 meters. The cable car is about 4 km long. Its capacity is 1,000 passengers per hour. The cable car is served by 40 gondolas. Travel time from Dub station to Kuk station is 10 minutes.
Guests can take a cable car ride if they wish. The driver will wait for them during the ride in both directions and with a photo stop at the top of the mountain, which is approximately 45 minutes, after which the guests continue the short journey to the old town of Budva, where the guide will wait.
Guests will have a guided tour of the old town of Budvaand learn about its impressive history from ancient times to the present day. Budva was completely destroyed after the 1979 earthquake. After 7 years of renovation, the city got its present appearance. About 200 permanent families live in it, and there are 6 churches, many small squares, shops, restaurants, and cafes in a network of narrow streets, some of which are no wider than a meter.
Around the old town of Budva, the rapid urbanization of the city in the last 15 years has transformed this Mediterranean town into a city with 20,000 permanent residents, whose number is constantly growing. In order to avoid traffic jams, we decided to take a tourist boat to continue the tour to St.Stefan (Sveti Stefan).
ST. STEFAN (SVETI STEFAN)
St.Stefan is one of the most beautiful places on the Montenegrin coast. This miniature island is dotted with stone houses and joined with the mainland by a sandy isthmus that the sea currents have built during the ages. The old village has been transformed is an exclusive tourist resort, with each house serving as a separate luxurious apartment.
Due to the arbitration dispute between the management of the Sveti Stefan Hotel and the government of Montenegro, the hotel has been closed for 3 years and we do not know when it will be opened. Visits to the island are also not possible, so we decided to get to the island by boat. Guests will be able to walk from Miločerski Park to St.Stefan.
The first cove to the north of Sveti Stefan is the famous Miločer Park. There is a nice villa built-in 1934 in the style of local stone houses. It was a royal mansion, which was transformed into a luxury hotel in the middle of the 20th century. The royal park is sheltered by thick groves, Mediterranean plants, especially cypresses, and olives. The ex-royal property has two beautiful pebble beaches, 300 meters long King's Beach, and 150 meters long Queen's Beach.
When the hotel is open again and visits to the island are possible, we will adjust the tour to the visit dates so that guests can see the inside. Sveti Stefan has about 40 houses of different sizes, 4 churches (all Orthodox), and one central square where there is a well. Here, residents of the Paštrovici clan lived in harmony for 400 years. After World War II, the communist regime nationalized the island and turned it into a hotel.
After visiting St.Stefan, and Milocer we will go back by boat to Budva, and then by car to Kotor. In the case of waves that the boat ride is not recommended, we will go to Sveti Stefan and Milocer by car.
The tour is organized by middle-class air-conditioned cars or minibusses. The price of the private tour is per car, not per person. The maximum number of guests in the car is 4.
Private tour costs €160(max. 4 pax)
