Because we knew nothing about Montenegro we decided it was best not to go it alone on this leg of the trip. We were able to find an excellent day tour by Atlas Tours that left Dubrovnik at 8:30 AM and returned back at the Pile gate before sundown. It was called the ‘Montenegro blue’ tour. The Tour company bus arrived promptly at the Pile gate to find our crew of 7, and other tourists from various parts of the world.
We drove south stopping at two other resort towns like Orjen to pick up other passengers then we were on our way. The drive was pleasant, but very curvy. The terrain was essentially the same rocky coastline and high mountains. We passed through Ledenice and Risan until we could begin to see the incredible Fjord’s of the bay of Kotor, which is a huge inlet of the Adriatic ocean. We passed through Orahovac and onto Kotor.
