Driving and walking combo


Witness firsthand why Dubrovnik was chosen to take a major role in 'Game of Thrones' and which locations were used for the unforgettable part which you will visit on this tour.

Year 2011 was important in Dubrovnik because that was when HBO decided Dubrovnik will get another alter ego - King's Landing, the capital city of the Seven Kingdoms. Just before the filming started in Dubrovnik, 'Game of Thrones' was already well-known and popular and the entire show definitely contributed to the overall destination reputation. It was only a matter of time when other big filming companies were to film in Dubrovnik - Star Wars came along, Robin Hood, Knightfall, Bollywood, and probably many more in the future.
See the Walk of Shame, King's Landing, Red Keep, Iron Throne and the gardens of King's Landing.
Visit one of the oldest arboretums in this part of Europe.
Have the best view of King's Landing at Mount Srdj.

Itinerary

Our tour will start in Trsteno Arboretum, the oldest arboretum in this part of the world. Located north of Dubrovnik, in Trsteno, here you will walk through the palace gardens of King's Landing, where gossip and intrigue foreshadowed battles.

Then we will go to King's Landing, Dubrovnik, latest and official capital of Seven Kingdoms. This is where the kings of Westeros plotted against their own blood and other enemies. Dubrovnik is one of Croatia's top tourist destinations, 'The Pearl of the Adriatic', known for its spectacular seafront location on the Dalmatian coast and breathtaking beauty. You will walk on Stradun, Dubrovnik's main street and see the Walk of shame stairs.

Lovrijenac Fortress was the Red Keep, It is located outside Dubrovnik on a 40 m high rock on the shore. The bay right in front of the fortress was used for the climatic scenes during the Battle of Blackwater.

A Recent Review of this tour

This was a fantastic tour. Our guide, Matija was a delight. He was funny, relatable, and energetic. We were a private tour of 20 for the day (10 adults, 10 children ranging from 8yr - 19yr old). He arranged transport to the old city, a Game of Thrones themed tour (even though we learned about everything else as well which was important because we did have some folks that did not watch the show) and even had time at the end to explore on our own. I highly recommend this tour and Matija.
