Good overall introduction
June 20, 2022
Pretty good informational tour for such a short time in port. We wasted a lot of time at the beginning waiting for others to join our group. I'm of the opinion that if you can't be on time, you should expect to get left behind. Otherwise, you inconvenience all those who were on time and paid good money for the full experience. We got shortchanged by those folks.

Budva and Kotor excursion
November 11, 2019
Over all we were very satisfied with our tour excursion to Budva and Kotor. The guide spoke fluent English and was very knowledgeable and informative. She met us in the designated spot at the designated time. Unfortunately 2 people didn’t show up and we were left waiting over 20 minutes which took from our tour time.

Tour operator was waiting for us exactly where you could see her. We had a small van only 17 people which was nice. Took a nice drive along coast to go to Kotor. City very interesting with alleys and buildings. Free time we decide to have lunch in a beach side restaurant. Food was very good. We were supposed to go to a fashion show but everyone voted and decide to skipped show and go to local market. Tour guide handled the vote and called company they had no problem with are vote. Tour guide was excellent.

May 24, 2019
Very knowledgeable and delightful guide named Anna. We enjoyed the scenic ride and history of the cities. Although I read about the stop at the leather factory and how pricey it was, I couldn't resist. Knowing or rather hoping that it's one of a kind and cant get anywhere else, I indulged in one reversible jacket. I'd never seen anything like it before. There were no high pressure sales tactics, we didnt have enough time, or rather it was enough.

Very Good Tour
December 04, 2018
Was a very good tour. Guide was really proud of her country and enjoyed showing it. One thing about SEG tours is they always have a vendor stop set up where you have to go through a high pressure sales pitch and have to fight your way out the door without buying anything. Wasn't planning on buying a $1800 jacket before tour, so why should I be forced to buy one?

This tour went perfectly. Their was ample time to tender to the pier and easy to find the tour group. The tour was well organized, we always felt at ease. The small group made it easy to find a good spot on the bus, next to my wife, without stress or rush. The tour leader was outstanding and the itinerary was interesting. The experience was personable due to the smaller size. Excellent value. I would recommend this tour

We were very satisfied with our tour. The guide was punctual, met us just outside the ship debarkation area and proved interesting and informative throughout the tour. We felt there was a nice balance between the time spent with the guide and allotted free time.While both Budva and Kotor are interesting cities worth a visit, we particularly enjoyed the size, architecture and shops of Kotor.

Beautiful locale. Tour guide offered a certain charm but this was not my favorite tour, though we were able see beautiful views in Montenegro. Tour guide spoke of many negative aspects of Montenegro which one may interpret as her “being real” but someone else may see it as negative. Nevertheless, I appreciated her perspective of her home but she seemed a little “rough around the edges.” But this is an absolutely beautiful country.

Beautiful walled cities
August 06, 2018
First time in Montenegro with an enjoyable tour made all the more memorable by our wonderful guide, Norman. We first drove out from Kotor for a photo opportunity and then visited the old walled city of Budva with its narrow streets. We came back and toured the old town of Kotor. Norman really made this tour for us. He is from Germany, married to a local and was passionate about his adopted country. We never felt rushed, and Norman actually was with us longer than the stated time - after checking with the group that it was okay. Highly recommended and don’t forget to ask for Norman.
