The maps aren't all that great. We got AWFULLY lost in Niksic. According to the map we 'should' have parked in exactly the same place as we did on our way up to Zabljak, but clearly didn't and ended up wondering around in the dry heat having an argument on the neccesity of getting lunch and needing the loo. The book doesn't mention a bustling central street with outdoor cafes (OK, yes, mostly pizza and ice-cream, but still...) that we very fortunately stumbled across. I wish I could tell you where it was, but based on the map, I couldn't put the two together. That said, the maps are not terrible - generally you can get around, we used it in Cetinje and Podgorica without much problem (but didn't spend all that long there). If you have a smartphone, it's probably worth downloading a map - especially if you're driving round Montenegro and can't be bothered to pay for a satnav or the cost of downloading maps for satnavs.
She covers a lot of the country, even the tiny towns with about 3 houses along the main road get a half-page, but I would have liked a lot more detail on the main towns/cities.Read more ›
Coverage of accomodation option was often poor, especially lacking the budget options - and for some towns listing no places to stay at all! Even worse is the complete lack of information on public transport. The author very obviously toured the country by car and couldn't be bothered to check out the existence and fares of buses and trains that are used to get around by most independant travellers!
While coverage of sights was mostly OK, it also proved pretty bad about, of all places, the nation's capital, Podgorica!
Without exception all those people whom I personally met using this guide were quite unhappy with it.
One can only hope that the publisher will eventually take note and either get a new author to rewrite the book, or provide some strong guidelines to the current author on what practical details are needed to bring this book in line with the quality of Bradt guides to the neighbouring countries: the ones covering Albania, Serbia and Hungary are all very good and could serve as a model.
Until that happens, you have a choice of buying this book just to plan WHERE you want to go (but not HOW!), or simply wait till you reach Montenegro and visit the tourist offices there that will provide you with just as many useful ideas on places to visit, and more heplful info on transport and accomodation!

Combined with the map it was very useful. We saw a lot of the country using the guide.
We planed our journeys the night before so it was really easy to find on the day.
