What you'll do

If you are looking for a tour with a lot of interesting history of Croatia and Dubrovnik, spiced with pop culture, and you are a huge GoT fan as well, than this tour is for you!

On this 3 hour long unforgettable journey you will be taken through the history of Dubrovnik - from its very beginning, to the point where this glorious city, became filming location for Game of Thrones.

From the Ottomans, Napoleon, the Balkan War and now into modern Croatia, you will discover how Dubrovnik has adapted to face difficult challenges throughout its history, surviving between competing empires by practicing the art of religious tolerance, trade, deception and spy-craft! On top of this, you will be provided a real insight into how the globally popular TV show ‘Game of Thrones’ was made and the impact that it had on the city, with GoT trivia that even non-GoT fans can enjoy.

On the tour we hit all of the big sites of Dubrovnik as well as the GoT filming locations within the City Walls and aroud the Old City, including the ones you would never see on other regular GoT tours in Dubrovnik! We'll go from one end of the old town to the other, with water breaks if necessary, well-chosen shaded spaces to get out of the hot sun, and beautiful vistas of the city and it's glorious architecture.

So, prepare your cameras and let the adventure begin!
Other things to note

YOUR HOSTS ON THE TOUR:
JELENA, licenced tour guide for Dubrovnik, and ex-journalist awarded by Croatian Association of Journalists. In love with her new job :) But beware, as wise man once said: You can leave journalism, but journalism never leaves you. Thus, your local tour guide is a history buff, and an expert in recent history of Dubrovnik, Croatia and all Balkan countries, and, of course, die-hard fan of Game of Thrones!
DANIEL (DADO): One could describe Dado as a chronic traveler and a passionate foodie, and both statements are true. Dado has visited more then 50 countries on 5 continents, he can whip up probably the same amount of dishes in about 50 min, and list out at least 50 awesome rock and roll bands. Great to be around, with an in-depth knowledge of Dubrovnik's history; you are in fantastic company to explore the City!

As an avid Game of Thrones fan, this was an amazing experience for me. I am glad I did this, and would recommend any GoT fan to do this. Jelena was phenomenal, and the presentation of historical facts about Dubrovnik along with GoT tidbits really made the entire 3 hours super fun! I plan to binge the entire series again once I get back to the US now that I have had totally different perspective about the show's filming

Great tour. Jelena is very knowledgeable about both the history of Croatia and Game of Thrones. I never realized how many locations had been filmed here! She even had a photo album to better help me visualize the scenes that were filmed. It was really cool to get a little behind the scenes insight from when the crew was actually conducting the filming here. If you love history and GoT, highly recommend this tour.

Do this tour if you would like to learn more about Dubrovnik, its old town, and/or if you’re a Game of Thrones fan (especially if you’re a GoT fan!). I did the tour with Jelena and it was more than worth it. I learned so much about Dubrovnik’s turbulent history, how things came to be what they are, as well as all the filming locations and scenes from GoT (and there’s a lot!). Really liked that Jelena showed me a picture of the scenes and the stories behind each place. You can take pictures in the same spots that your favorite GoT character was at! The views from some of the locations we visited were simply amazing. Jelena was very patient with me enjoying the views and taking pictures along the way (such a tourist I know). It was a really good tour and I highly recommend it!

We were hosted by Daniel. He was a wonderful and human being with a lot of knowledge about Dubrovnik. He explained the history of Dubrovnik and connected us with a lot of his experiences of the city. He gave us really good recommendations especially since we had a really short time to visit the city. He also showed us many sites where GOT was shot and had some really amazing trivia which we wouldn't know otherwise. Great experience overall! I can highly recommend it :)

Guida simpatica e disponibile. È stato un ottimo modo per avere un primo approccio con Dubrovnik, scoprendone la storia e guardandola con gli occhi del fan di Game of Thrones! Daniel ci ha sorpresi con un eccellente italiano

The tour in itself was amazing. It contained everything we wanted to see regarding old town and GOT with amazing views. However, the best part of the tour was our guide Jelena. She made sure to tell us about everything wanted to know and had a lot of fun facts about history of Dubrovnik and GOT. Her love for the town was very apparant through her story telling. Even though 3 hours seems like a lot, it flew by. All in all, would definetly recommend. 😊
