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!

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!

This was a brilliant tour, it was so great to learn about the history of Dubrovnik in such detail. Jelena really is very knowledgeable and passionate about her subjects, it was great to be able to combine GoT and history in one tour. Thank you very much Jelena!

Must-try experience to know more about the town !!! we’ve participated in a tour guided by Daniel, Jelena co-host! It’s a super interesting, well-travelled guy who was born in Dubronik so he was able to provide great insights about the city and its history. We are not GoT fans but felt in love with the tour anyway. It definitely provided us interesting knowledge abt the city, also abt the TV show

Jelena is responsive as I messaged her with an advanced question and she’s replied straightaway. Very friendly and due to the pandemic, the small number of joiners allowed us to get to know each other better and exchange life experiences. She’s well travelled and full of knowledge. I read the reviews and they are accurate with the great personality, knowledge and service. I highly recommend her tour GoT fans.
