Dubrovnik History and Game of Thrones
Dubrovnik History and Game of Thrones
When you only have one day in Dubrovnik it will be very difficult to choose on how you spend your time, seeking out the Game of Thrones filming locations or immersing yourself in the local history. But, with this combo tour you don't have to choose just one, take advantage of the opportunity to learn everything you possibly can about this amazing medieval walled city. Game of Thrones fans won't miss any of the filming locations that a regular tour would include, but in addition to this everyone also will get a full history lesson as part of your day in Croatia, truly something for everyone.
After you meet up with your local and knowledgeable tour guide, who will be waiting for you just outside the cruise port gate, take a short transfer ride into the Old Town where you will begin your day in King's Landing, or Dubrovnik Old City.
You will visit various locations and make stops as your guide provides a wealth of information about the history of the area. Visit Onofrio's fountain, the Franciscan monastery, St. Blaise, Orlando's column, the Memorial room in Sponza palace and Dubrovnik cathedral all combining history with the Game of Thrones stories from filming locations. You will also visit, the Red Keep, Blackwater Bay, walk of shame and more locations from the show. Your guide will have a diagram with pictures from actual scenes from the show so you can compare where you are standing and what you are viewing, enabling you to feel even more in touch with your favorite series.
At the end of the tour, your guide will take you to where you will get the chance to have a picture on an exact replica of the Iron Throne. What could be more fitting for a GOT complete tour. Have some free time in the Old Town for more exploration and a chance to pick up a souvenir or two.
This tour concludes at the official Game of Thrones store in Old Town.
Please Note: Entrance fee to Lovrijenac Fortress is included.

As a Game of Thrones fan, this was a wonderful tour. The ironic thing was some in the group had never seen the show but still enjoyed it. Ana was super. She had photos taken from the show that she could use to compare against the back ground. That made it even more interesting. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone. It is a bit of an uphill climb and I have hip issues but Ana did stop enough that I had no issues making it.

This excursion was worth every cent! Our tour guide (Goran?) was very knowledgeable about both GOT and Dubrovnik and surrounding areas. It was a small group and we had time to have a good look around and ask as many questions as we wanted. I would recommend this excursion to anyone who is a fan.

The place is very fascinating and beautiful, a must see and we wished our ship spend more hours on that place. I would love to climb up and walk around to see the whole city. We have the best tour guide. She was very knowledgeable anout the place and proud of her heritage.

Very fun to hear the actual history of places in Dubrovnik and then to see where scenes from Gamr of Thrones were filmed.
If you're a Game of Thrones fan, this is the tour for you! I book this excursion because it was going to be the best of both worlds, however there wasn't much Dubrovnik history covered. We spent about 5 minutes talking about the town's history and the remaining few hours talking about Game of Thrones. Our guide was wonderful and very knowledgable. We finished the tour with a picture on the Iron Throne (replica). Also, upon booking this excursion, the detailed description indicated that I would be picked up and dropped off at the cruise ship port. After printing out the confirmation ticket, it indicated that there was optional shuttle transportation at an additional fee, so beware.
