Boat ride on Lake Skadar

Disembark at a private beach - a small bay on the lake which is one of the few beaches in this National park. Have a swim here or just enjoy the leisure time on the beach.

A family prepares coastal signature delights such as prosciutto from Lustica peninsula, cheese in olive oil, local olives and some coastal gastronomic rarities such as Paštrovački handmade pasta, prepared from inherited recipes. These dishes are perfectly matched by wines produced by the family.

Take a walk through the amazing olive yard and visit an attraction of great historic and ethnographic value – well preserved ancient olive mill - and step back in time when olives were milled by manpower.

Learn how to taste flavours of extra virgin olive oil produced by home-grown olives. Spend a time with your host olive producer and learn about how he managed to combine olive oil production with tourism before returning to Budva.

I am a regular cycle visitor to the Adriatic coast but had little knowledge of Montenegro. I found 3e on the internet and was glad I did. I told them our dates, number or riders and ability and they did the rest. They came up with an excellent itinerary, sorted accommodation and bikes and supported us on the ride. Without their local knowledge we could not have discovered the fantastic rides and places without 3e. Angelika was just fantastic. Hope to get back for some trail rides soon.

WOOOOW Just finished 6 magical cycling days in Montenegro. The riding was as a self guided tour- grand tour Montenegro. 3etravel organized everything. Starting from sending the route as a gpx file, reserved hotels, transferring my luggage from hotel to hotel, emergency phone, bicycle and a side bag, and 2 transportation. The tour was amazing!!! Avoiding the main roads, using beautiful side roads which leads to the most beautiful points in Montenegro. Thank you for your professionalism and concern.

We had an outstanding experience. While planning the trip, communications with the owner, Borislav, were timely and effective whether by email, Skype or WhatsApp. Borislav was accommodating in customising the trip to my specific requests. He coordinated airport transfers to/from Dubrovnik to Montenegro and arranged COVID testing so we would re-enter Croatia on the return. Our driver was outstanding in all regards: friendly, bend-over-backwards helpful and safe. Of the accommodations, 5 of the 7 were very good-to-excellent. I provided feedback on all of them. I plan on additional Balkan travel and, when I do, I will return to 3e Travel.

I wanted to organise a trip for 40 friends to Montenegro to celebrate my partner's 50th birthday. Everything about the organisation could not have been smoother - the communication back and forth was fast, the 3e team successfully greeted our guests arriving at 3 different airports on multiple different days, all of our guides and drivers were excellent, the accommodation in each part of the country was local and authentic as requested, and most importantly we got exactly the amazing set of experiences that we were looking for: skiing and show-shoeing, long hikes, stunning views, historical tours, private tours and tastings at vineyards, bee-farms, olive farms and herb farms, boat-rides, oyster tasting, and many excellent meals and wine-tastings. 40 people left Montenegro as ambassadors of the country, and we all hope to return again. If anyone is planning a trip to Montenegro or any of the neighbouring countries, I will always recommend the 3e team.
