After struggling to find a UK based tour operator who could put together a tailor-made, two week holiday to Montenegro, I stumbled across MEA on the internet.
As we discussed our various holiday options over the telephone, I was immediately impressed by their friendliness, enthusiasm and knowledge. I have never before used a non-UK based company to plan and book a holiday and was initially a little apprehensive about paying the balance by Bank transfer to a foreign country. I really needn’t have worried, MEA were efficient and totally professional throughout our entire holiday experience. Nikola kept in contact throughout our stay, checking that we were ok and really couldn’t have done any more for us.
Our two week holiday was based upon the mountain-lake-sea package which meant that we stayed in five different places, taking in four of the five National Parks within Montenegro. We chose not to hire a car so MEA took care of all our transfers as well as our tours and accommodation. We visited places, saw things and learnt things that we never would have been able to organise on our own. To name but a few, the two of us enjoyed hiking in the Durmitor and Lovcen National Parks with private guides, we received a blessing at Ostrog Monastery, we had an excellent, informative winery tour followed by wine tasting at a local, award winning private estate, we kayaked to Beska Island where a nun gave us a private tour of the two monasteries located there, we visited the home of a local bee keeper and enjoyed a fabulous lunch prepared by his wife, we ate wild water chestnuts on Lake Skadar and we enjoyed a private boat tour to the Blue Cave followed by a fabulous seafood lunch at the remote Dobrec Beach.
Montenegro is a stunningly beautiful country and the warmth and hospitality of the Montenegrin people is second to none. The food, whilst pretty basic, is locally sourced, mostly organic and totally delicious. MEA allowed us to see the real Montenegro, not a sanitised tourist version. The holiday was exactly what I was hoping for and I would go back in a heartbeat. Although I would love to keep this stunning little country a secret, I haven’t stopped telling my friends, family and clients just how amazing it is. MEA are doing a brilliant job in keeping everything local and ‘real’ and they really do deserve to succeed.

We had a really great time discovering this wonderful country. It has everything: beaches, fortified coastal towns, hiking, skiing, mountains, history, abandoned forts and villages to explore and fantastic food and wine. The best part is that it is small enough that you only spend a short amount of time on the road.
Montenegro Eco adventures were great at showing us around and at taking us to places where tourists really don’t visit. Well worth a visit and we’ll be going back to do some more hiking in the future.

Montenegro Eco Adventures ist absolut empfehlenswert, wenn man keinen Massentourismus mag, sondern nachhaltigen Tourismus, Natur pur und wahnsinnig nette Menschen. Milica im Büro der Agentur war sehr flexibel und geduldig mit mir kompliziertem Gast.
Nikola als mein Tourguide weiss alles über Geschichte und das Land und war wirklich engagiert. Jelena und ihr schönes altes Boot machten möglich, dass ich drei Pelikane sah, viele Kormorane und ein entzückendes kleines Kloster auf einer Insel besichtigte. Marko Djurisic zeigte mir Godinje , er ist ein Vorreiter des Agrotourismus in Montenegro. Ein ökologischer Winzer, der den Lake Skadar kennt wie seine Westentasche. Wundervolle Leute, wundervolle Natur. Unbedingt empfehlenswert!

Nik has been great! I luved, luved, Goran and what he does. Drago’s history lessons helped fit all the different nuggets of facts for me into more meaning info. So really pleased with that. Marko’s grandpa’s wine cellar lounge was a nice surprise: lots of potential with that place and what he’s offering! You are good with sussing out these ‘gems’. Hats off to Nik & you guys for crossing paths with such lovely people!

Just ended a two-day trip in Montenegro with Montenegro Eco Adventures. Had the pleasure of meeting three of the guides (Marko, Nikola and Jasmina), and all of them are good fun, intelligent, outspoken and very passionate and enthusiastic about their work and country. It was an amazing experience and my only regret is, that it didn’t last longer.

I joined a writers expedition organized by MEA at Klinci Village. Our group was spoiled with attention at personal and professional level. Beautiful apartments, all meals even in outside restaurants were perfectly arranged and delicious. We had excellent coaching from an established Dutch author and one evening even a local publisher shared his views with us. In between we made lovely trips in the surroundings and had a memorable boat trip in the Bay. Everybody was so friendly. I can wholeheartedly recommend MEA.
“Best holidays I have been on in Europe”
Visited June 2016
Scott made it possible to have one of the best holidays I have been on in Europe. We covered a lot… Budva, Kotor, Prokletije National Park, Podgorica to name a few places. I can’t fault this country. .. where to start. … the people, the weather, the unbelievable fresh food, the scenery, the activities, the prices, the positivity, the vineyards, the unspoilt land. Am going back in February to ski. Please visit this country but see it in the right way… support the locals, go off the beaten track. It’s an experience of a lifetime!
