The Ancient Olives of Montenegro Tour

Start your day being picked up by your friendly local guide who will take you to the Lustica Peninsula, the still relatively-untouched haven of secluded beaches and idyllic villages nestled between the Adriatic Sea and Boka Bay.

Enjoy traversing the green, rolling hills and passing charming hamlets in a culturally rich area dotted with 20 churches as you make your way to one of the many family-run farms to learn all there is to know about olive oil production.

Upon arrival, you will be met with a welcome drink and the opportunity to taste a sampling of traditional organic delights such as smoked prosciutto, different cheeses, olives, olive oil, and local wine. Take some time to wander through the olive groves and take photos before your return ride to the port.

This formerly isolated area has recently been discovered by tourists and developers alike, book now for a chance to experience Lustica's simple, unspoiled beauty while you still can.

This was really enjoyable to visit people where they live especially with such an excellent guide. The only downside was the time of the excersion as it was too dark to actually see the olive groves or the garden. Earlier scheduling in autumn/winter months would be better.

Wonderful experience!

My friend and I selected this tour as we wanted to see more of the country of Montenegro from real folks. Well we were pleasantly surprised by the wonderful folks who showed us their beautiful country and a beautiful Olive plantation! Jovana was so knowledgeable about the area and answered all our questions and our host at the olive farm was so gracious and generous of her time! We can’t wait to go back! Our driver was excellent and we felt safe and comfortable, he showed us some beautiful views while Jovana told us of the history! Such a wonderful experience! We highly recommend!!

The hosts welcomed us with a traditional spirit and/or juice. I learned a lot about how olive oil is produced and toured their property. We then sat down for some yummy cheese, meat & of course olives. I really enjoyed this excursion.

This was a fantastic excursion. Fun trip through the hills to get to destination. The hosts were welcoming and you got to see how they used to make olive oil. They served a delicious ample snack of their olives and olive oil, cheese, bread and wine. We asked many questions and the hosts spoke good English so we could communicate well. Highly recommend this tour.

Couldn't have been better

I was the only one to select this tour and they still put out all the welcome mats. Sanja as guide was just wonderful as we traveled to be greeted by the most charming family you could imagine. I was then treated to a variety of cheeses, meats, olives, drinks, and oils while having the most pleasant of conversations where I learned that, despite vast distances, many of the values people hold are essentially universal. Highly recommended!

Unexpectedly Pleased

I was beyond surprised by this tour. We get on the van and we take off. We drove out of Kotor into the country. We got a real look into the areas where the residents live. The views were breathtaking. You could see the ocean and all the mountains from high up and words cannot describe how great they were. We arrive at our destination and we were welcomed by the kindest family. They were so happy to welcome us into their home and tell us the history of it, how olive is made for their community. They provided us with delicious food and wine! The interaction with the family was so special that we dare to say this was easily one of the top tours we took during our 14-day vacation. Now, we have to give a special shootout to our tour guide Sanja. She truly cared about giving us a great experience. She accompanied us the whole trip, she made sure to take breathtaking pictures of us with amazing views in the background and we learned so much about Montenegro thanks to her.
