Ever since Season 2 of the HBO TV-series 'Game of Thrones' aired in 2012, I have been met with a fair share of requests in which the clients wanted to see the places where the crew filmed and were recognizable from the series.

Being a huge fan of the series (and the book) myself, I have decided to create a specialized tour which would cover the sites in the Old Town of Dubrovnik (and its surroundings) that were used for the scenes in this celebrated HBO TV-series. Apart from the King's Landing, you will also be able to recognize some other locations from the series, such as the magical town of Qarth.

This unique tour that I personally created turned out to be a great success in 2013. Although few similar tours are now offered by other guides, the many positive reviews of true GoT fans that had the chance to take this tour prove that the Dubrovnik Game of Thrones Tour has become my personal trademark.

- Joffrey's name day tourney

- Daenerys, Jorah and Kovarro arrive to the House of Undying
- Tyrion, Bronn and Podrick meet after the battle of Blackwater
- Jaime's return to King's Landing
  Where and When:
Meet up location: Meeting location is usually at the large plateau by the Pile Gate, the western entrance to the city, which is also the main bus stop for local public buses and cruise passengers shuttle buses coming from the port of Gruz. You can find me by the fountain right next to a large video wall (impossible to miss), where I will be holding a sign with your name.

It is also possible to arrange another meeting location in the vicinity of the Old Town, such as at the eastern entrance called Ploce Gate or by the Large Onofrio Fountain within the walls of Dubrovnik, depending on what is the most convenient for you. If necessary, I can also meet you at your hotel or at the Gruz port, where most of the cruise ships are moored and organize the transport to the Old Town for an extra charge.
End location: Once the tour finishes I will be happy to accompany you to the place where we originally met or to the other location of your interest within the Old Town of Dubrovnik
Duration: 2 hours 30 min.

TOUR PRICE:  (duration 2 hours 30 min.)
140 USD (for up to 8 people)
deposit ?
  Estimated Local Cash Needed:
100 HRK - Admission fees per person for Dubrovnik City Walls & Fortress of St. Lawrence (discounted price of HRK 30 per person is available for students with valid student ID).

OPTIONAL COSTS: Entrance ticket for Trsteno Arboretum is 40 HRK per person, Lokrum Island boat ticket is 70 HRK per person (student discounts not available).
  What's Included:
The tour would approximately last 2.5 hours and would include the tour around the locations within and around the Old Town of Dubrovnik (conducted by a licensed tourist guide and a great fan of the 'Game of Thrones' TV series).

Within this period we would need to climb one part of the Dubrovnik City Walls, visit the fortress of St. Lawrence and perhaps pay a visit to Rector's palace.

IMPORTANT: Please note that the rate quoted is a GROUP PRICE for a PRIVATE TOUR. The price is valid for GROUPS up to max. 8 persons. Once you book the tour, you book the time slot and it is up to you to find other companions. This is actually what some of my clients do, they book the tour and then try to find the other GoT enthusiasts to join so they can split the cost.
  What's Extra:
The entrance tickets, transport, meals and drinks are not included in the price.

Although some of the scenes from Qarth were filmed in Dubrovnik, the actual setting for 'greatest city there was and will be' is the exotic island of Lokrum, which can easily be visited by a regular line departing from the Old Town. If clients have more time at their disposal it is possible to extend a tour to include the visit to the island of Lokrum and visit all the locations from the Season 2.

Apart from Lokrum the extended tour can include the visit to Trsteno Arboretum (about 30-minute drive from Dubrovnik) which was also used as one of the settings from the show in Seasons 3&4. This former 15th-century aristocratic estate is best known from the iconic scenes that involve the house Tyrell.

The extended tour would last between 5 and 6 hours and the price would depend on whether you wish to venture 'across the Narrow Sea' to Lokrum or visit the 'Tyrell garden' (Trsteno) Feel free to contact me for further explanations.
