Adorned with towering mountains, ancient villages and a narrow strip of sun kissed beaches along its Adriatic coastline, the southeastern European country of Montenegro is an excellent destination for travellers looking for some fun in the sun.
Its popular Bay of Kotor, which shares a resemblance to a fjord is home to a host of coastal churches and fortified towns such as Kotor and Herceg Novi. Boasting over 290 kilometres of unspoilt coastline, Montenegro almost always has ideal weather conditions for a day at the beach, offering more than 250 days of sunshine annually and typical Mediterranean wind conditions.

Montenegro has a reputation for being a safe and friendly country to visit.
Montenegro does not have a currency of its own, but the euro is accepted throughout the country.
The shoulder season (May-June & September-October) is the best time of the year to visit, as the waters are warm and there is plenty of sunshine.
In Montenegrin restaurants, a service charge is generally not included in the bill so a 10-15% gratuity is appreciated.
The tap water is drinkable in Montenegro, but if you are by the seaside you should drink bottled water.
I had an amazing time on the trip. Everything was incredibly well organized and planned out to a tee. Our tour guide, Big Mo, was amazing and super knowledgeable. I couldn't have imagined a better trip to Egypt!
Anthony has been a pleasure to work with and when he is not available, other members of the team respond in a timely manner. I have booked a total of 6 trips since December 2013 and plan to book more to fill my bucket list.
Everything about the trip was thought through, fine-tuned , and marvelous. From Ant Horribin helping us arrange the trip, to rep Waled Ali, and our guide Big Mo, we could not have asked for a better team. Our sincere thanks to them.
Trip booked through Groupon at a Great offer price - Encounters was nothing but professional from the start. I even purchased insurance - extra days and got the best flights from my local airport- Great experience
Conscientious in early communication; knowledgeable, humorous and caring tour guides; an exemplary itinerary that was well organized yet flexible; an overall extraordinary experience. I'd recommend them enthusiastically.
