More to Explore
Listed below are just a few of the optional tours that may be available to you depending on the time of year and numbers interested. Prices should be used as a guideline only, as these could vary, depending on numbers, as these trips may run as private trips or you may be joined by other holidaymakers. All tours can be paid for in local currency (kunas) or Euros but in cash only. The exact amount will be given at your Information Meeting. Your Tour Leader will help arrange these for you but may not necessarily accompany you.

  • Jeep Safari to Lovcen National Park
  • Boat ride along Budva coast

Gratuities
There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below.

Your Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual. We suggest a group collection to cover drivers, porters and hotel staff of €30.00. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate add on.

A reasonable level of fitness/mobility is required as we include plenty of sightseeing/travelling, sometimes with early starts.

Temperature (Average Daily Maximum ºC)
Budva 18°C Apr 26°C Sep
Dubrovnik 16°C Apr 24°C Sep

Dress Code
Casual daytime wear is recommended. Comfortable shoes are a “must” for sightseeing. Smart casual clothes will be ideal for the evenings - the emphasis throughout being informality.
