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.
Upon completion of the tour you will be transferred back to your ship and the pier area.
Please Note: Entrance fee to Lovrijenac Fortress is included.
During the GOT tour we learned about the real history of the town. That was even more interesting than the GOT parts. Standing in the same places as the characters did was still amazing. Croatia is a beautiful plave, one I can not wait to return to.

We enjoyed our excursion very much. Our tour guide was very nice and extremely knowledgeable about the Dubrovnik and the Game of Thrones locations. We have already recommended your company to a friend who is taking an Oceana Cruise in July.

We were a little concerned taking a shore excursion not provided by the cruise line, however the company met us right on time right outside the ship terminal gate (only a 4-5 minute walk from where the ship docked in Dubrovnik). We ended up being the only ones on this tour, so the coordinator at the port had arranged a taxi to take us to our tour guide in old town. The driver was very talkative and interesting making it a very enjoyable ride. The guide was excellent and very accommodating to my physical needs. She was willing to spend whatever time we needed to answer questions and share her many stories and allow as much time as we wanted for pictures. At the completion of the tour she was very helpful making sure we knew how to catch the bus back to the port after we finished shopping, etc. My daughter is a big Game of Thrones fan while I am not, and we both really enjoyed the tour. We would highly recommend this tour.

A very interesting and fun tour, especially if you are a Games of Thrones fan. The guide was very enthusiastic and prepared with area by area photos of scenes from the show, in the exact spots we were seeing and standing in.

Although I've not seen one episode of GOT, we booked this tour for my husband because he is a fan. We took a short ride in a private van to the site where we met our guide Paola. She was very delightful, informative and knowledgeable, couldn't have asked for a better guide. Dubrovnik is absolutely beautiful, the history of this region is compelling. I'm interested in going back and seeing more.
