Ashley RussoUnited States
Tom was amazing! He had so much information, not only about thrones, but history of the city and other film sites as well. It started to rain during our tour and Tom let us stop under shelter until it passed and took extra time out of his day to help us really enjoy the tour. Excellent excellent excellent! I'd recommend this tour and tom to everyone coming to Dubrovnik.
Jennifer SkeelsUnited States
We couldn't have asked for a better tour guide than Tomislav. Being a Game of Thrones enthusiast himself, made the tour that much better.
Kate BradleyUnited Kingdom
The walking tour was the highlight of our teenage children's trip and we would recommend it to anyone who enjoys 'Game of Thrones' as an interesting way to explore the city.

Tomislav was fabulous very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor we couldn't have been happier many thanks for the best guide
Virginia ( Ginger) CasillasUnited States
We thoroughly enjoyed Tomislav's informative tour of Dubrovinik. His fact-filled narration delivered with lots of humorous asides, gave our group lots to discuss after the tour. Tom answered all of our questions and gave suggestions for other activities. It was a privilege to have such an enthusiastic guide!
What a great tour! Tom and Robert were excellent guides to this amazing city. The views provided, as well as the passion they feel for this great city made the tour extra special. Although we didn't book the Game of Thrones tour, when Tom heard we all watched the show, he modified the tour on the fly to combine the history of Dubrovnik with the locations for famous Game of Throne scenes. Truly epic!
Mary JeffersonDundas, ON, Canada
Tom was a terrific tour guide. Relaxed but very informative! He adjusted the tour to meet one of the group members mobility issues. I would highly recommend him. You won't be disappointed!
Irene CatoeraUnited States
Great tour! Highly recommend.
Great tour with Tom as our guide. We really liked that we had a private tour. It was nice that we didn't have to deal with a large group and Tom could gear the tour to what we were interested in. Tom suggested we start early in order to avoid the busy crowds in Dubrovnik. He was great at skirting us around the crowds and of course he took us to the iron throne for photos. His customer service did not end with the tour. He sent me an email with lots of other places to see while we were in Dubrovnik.
Sarah ValentineUnited Kingdom
Tom was a great choice of guide for my husband (GOT fan) & I (who haven't watched it). A really fascinating place which we both enjoyed. Tom went out of his way to make it special and was very informative including information on other local areas to visit.
Ann SkinnerUnited Kingdom
Excellent tour of Dubrovnik Old Town. Tomis had the right balance of recommendations and following our requests. We were able to see the Old Town without feeling too hurried or crowded. An excellent morning and experience.
Darrell WabschallUnited States
Tomislav was a great guide. He helped us to order our tour in such a way that we avoided the heavy crowds. We especially appreciated him bringing us to great sites for taking fabulous pictures of Dubrovnik that we would have never found on our own.
Bruce EvansUnited States
Tom was excellent .... gave great insight to our tour and very patient with our 5 yr old ..thanks Tom
Lindsay MossUnited Kingdom
Very enjoyable tour with a very good tour guide! Tom was very knowledgable and took us to all the locations and provided photos from the show so we could see the scenes, and gave us lots of information (and took lots of photos for us!) Very polite and very friendly, really enjoyed the tour, thanks Tom!
Barbara SchwartzUnited States
This was an excellent tour of Dubrovnik and the surrounding area for our group of 6. Tom is a great guide and historian. He had a lot of patience and modified the walking route to Old Town to accommodate one of us who had difficulty with steps. He also took us to a lovely restaurant in Cavtat for lunch. Tom and our driver, Antonio, made our visit to Dubrovnik memorable! We highly recommend Tom and this tour!
Shirley RuetimannUnited Kingdom
Although this was a short tour, Tomislav was able to inspire us not only with Game of Thrones related information but also the history of Dubrovnik and the Old Town. He has a great sense of humour and outstanding English.
Cheryl KatzUnited States
This is the best tour we have ever taken anywhere that we traveled because of our tour guide Tomislav Matana. We signed up to see the locations and learn about the production of the Game of Thrones. But Mr. Matana's in depth knowledge of the history of Dubrovnik, Croatia and the region and culture made it both in depth and special. And he was able to present all in a way that not only kept our interest, but made us want more! We highly recommend this tour.
Laura DaviesUnited Kingdom
Tom was an excellent guide- very knowledgeable about GOT but also Croatian and European history. The tour was informative and entertaining and I would recommend it as a great way to explore Dubrovnik!
Stella BurchardUnited States
Highly recommend Tom! My husband and I are GOT fans, but two of the other guests have never watched the show. After the tour with Tom, they were both inspired to watch the show based on his knowledge, preparedness, and enthusiasm for his love of Dubrovnik history, as well as Game of Thrones' filming locations and scenes which he incorporated into the tour. Tom also recommended great Croatian wines (he's also a sommelier) and self-guided tours for our drive up to Split. Looking forward to our next visit!
Greg GarrettUnited States
Tom is extremely knowledgeable about his beautiful city. From history to the GOT locations, Tom shared his knowledge and answered questions through engaging conversation. We especially appreciated his first hand accounts of the bombing of Dubrovnik and, of course, his photos of the GOT scenes while pointing out filming locations. I highly recommend Tom for your private tour of Dubrovnik.
Kay BogrenUnited States
Tom was an excellent and informative guide. He tailored our tour to review Croatian history, Interesting Game of Thrones anecdotes and sites, AND a lovely wine tasting. He also was extremely helpful with making accommodations for my current state of low mobility due to a broken ankle. Tom was friendly and engaging. He also brought us for a demo of the handmade beads that date back 400 years when we asked about it. We rate Tom and his tour 5 stars!!
W. Michael HammerUnited States
Tomislav did a "Game of Thrones" tour for us. He teaches history of the area at a local university so our amazing tour had history, culture, local knowledge and we enjoyed seeing where certain scenes from the show were filmed. By starting early in the day we avoided some of the heat and slot of the crowds. His English is amazing and he was a most personable guide. He had great suggestions for things to do on our own. We were completely satisfied with our tour and would recommend Tomislav.
Becky AbbeyUnited Kingdom
I would highly recommend the GOT tour through tours with locals. We got barrels of GOT enthusiasm and knowledge and also some interesting historical facts on the city too. Our tour guide, Tomislav M., made the guided wander through the city very relaxed, humourous and interesting; I would highly recommend Tom as your guide!
Sandra ChristiansonUnited States
It was excellent and Tomislav was excellent
Joan Chamorro IrizarryCongo Democratic Republic
We had a great private tour with Tomislav! He does a great job combining game of thrones filming locations and history of Dubrovnik. We loved it :))
Barbara L.United States
Tom was just fantastic. He knew everything about everything, not just the Game of Thrones. It was a kick to see the various GOT sites but also to learn the history of Dubrovnik. Tom couldn't have been better! Bravo!
Jan BrodmerkelUnited States
Tom did an excellent job on the Dubrovnik Game of Thrones Tour. Excellent value for price. He was very knowledgable about the Game of Thrones filming location and the history of Dubrovnik. He took great care of his guests.
Fun, Fascinating & Fantastic!! This is a "must do" in Dubrovnik. We visited Dubrovnik with our 2 teenagers - all of us GOT fans - and Tom gave us an amazing tour of his city. He happily listened to our many questions and managed a perfect balance of history and fun features of the show. As a university professor he shared his knowledge and insights into aspects of Dubrovnik in an interesting and enjoyable way that brought the city's history to life in a way we would never have discovered on our own.
Kathleen ScottoUnited States
We had a wonderful tour with Tom and the driver Stefan. They picked up us on time, we visited the scenic Trsteno arboretum, toured beautiful country, had our favorite meal - cooked under a bell, sampled wine and two different wineries, enjoyed a sunset view with oysters and beer and wine. Tom gave us a detailed history of the country and was very knowledgeable, entertaining and great with our group. He is a fabulous tour guide and thanks to Tom this was our favorite trip.
Eileen MullarkeyUnited States
Welcoming, friendly, knowledgeable, able to handle our group of 14. We learned so much history told in an enjoyable way and his knowledge of Game of Thrones was amazing. Knew the cool spots to take us and could anticipate our needs. Thanks to Tom we saw the highlights of Dubrovnik including Game of Thrones fliming spots, didn't have to wait in lines for tickets and kids in group loved spot to cliff jump in lokrum. I highly recommend Tom!
Barbara W.United States
We could not have gotten a better tour guide! Tom was perfectly on time for our meet-up, which he generously rescheduled for us last minute due to an unexpected flight delay. He was super friendly, extremely knowledgeable about both local history and Game of Thrones, and very unrushed and patient with us going up all those stairs on a hot, sunny day! The GoT photos he brought along were awesome, and he even followed up with an email after the tour with links and info for the rest of our trip. Thank you!
Kelly HuelsingUnited States
Tom was fantastic, and the tour was really interesting - you learn a lot about Dubrovnik's history as well, which we found to be the most interesting part. Lots of great photo opportunities as well!
Steve KissingerUnited States
Tom and Robbie were both excellent, eager to accommodate our wishes and preferences, and both had a wealth of information they were willing to share. Our first Tours by Locals experience and we were very pleased. Co-traveler says "Make sure you give them a 10 out of 10." Thanks, guys!
Lidia PavlotskyUnited States
The GOT tour with Tomislav was wonderful! He took us to all the important filming sites and talked about so many interesting details that we didn't even know about. I would recommend him to everyone!
Judy S.United Kingdom
Tom is an absolutely brilliant guide and I would highly recommend him. This was our 2nd tour with him and as before, he was entertaining as well as informative and happy to taylor the tour to suit the needs of our group. The island trip to Lokrum was a lovely relaxing way to end the tour after the walk round the walls in the morning.
Tom deserves top marks for his excellence as a guide. We were a group of 7 with varied interests and perspectives. He managed to keep us all enthralled for the full tour and we all felt as though we had a good understanding and insight into Dubrovnik both historically and from a current point of view. Tom has a lovely way of connecting with his audience and dazzled us with his knowledge, good sense of humour and general personability. We felt like we'd won the lottery!
Ronald T.United States
Tomislav gave an excellent tour full of hisorical detail. He also led us to excellent dining and showed good flexibility. I highly recommend him.
Great Tour - thank you very much!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You're welcome, Laura! Keep on watching the show for more familiar Game of Thrones points from Dubrovnik. Valar Morghulis. Tom
Robin BuxtonOrinda, CA, United States
Tom is a terrific tour guide! We had a limited amount of time in Dubrovnik and he managed to cover 1000 years of Croatian/Yugoslav/Ottoman/Habsburg history in a comprehensive but enjoyable fashion in our stroll around the city walls. The Game of Thrones fantasy sites information he provided lightened the sometimes grim synopsis of the area's history. If you have an interest in Marshall Tito, be sure to bring it up with Tom. His research on the Yugoslav leader was fascinating. Great tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robin, Thank you so much for this kind review. As you probably noticed during our tour I really enjoy doing the interactive tours where the traveler is just as much involved in the touring process as is the guide. I believe that traveler's questions and interests are indispensable ingredient that steers the tour and am always willing to adapt the tour to traveler's own preferences. Give my regards to Mark! Tom
Craig FarquharUnited States
Dubrovnik, Croatia was more than I had imagined. The city is truly beautiful and all on the hides gems shown us by Tom our experienced guide made it even better. Tom and his assistant Robert where great guides / driver and they knew all the history as well. We had chosen to to a history / Game of Thrones Tour and Tom had all the inside information as well as photos from the series to compare. I would recommend him highly. If I ever come back I would use his service again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Craig, Thank you so much for this great review. I only hope that the remainder of your cruising holiday continued in the same manner: sunny weather, great guides and a lot of photo opportunities! Best regards, Tom
Steven PassinUnited States
Both the driver and guide were very knowledgeable aboutvthe history of Croatia and the nuances of history. We enjoyed it thoroughly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Steve, I hope to see you again and welcoming you to the Old Town of Dubrovnik. Best regards, Tom
Daniel AruteUnited States
Our day with Tom & Robert was absolutely amazing! My wife & I were enthralled the entire tour. From ancient history to modern-siege of Dubrovnik to GoT all in one place! Even my 9yr old had a hard time pretending she was bored! So much history and culture. Spending the day with Tom & Robert was so comfortable & fun. It was like spending time with old friends showing us around their amazing home town. It is rare to have such outstanding guides. We now want to go back next year and visit with Tom again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Daniel! I am glad that the tour worked out for your daughter as much as for you and your wife. I also had a great time touring with the two of you and Dani and I hope to welcome you again in Dubrovnik Best regards, Tom
Veronica VicenteUnited States
BEST GUIDE EVER!!!! Really wish I could find a guide like Tom in every city I visit. Incredibly knowledgeable, able to think outside the box and rearrange tour to best work with my schedule. Made sure I didn't miss a thing. Even offered to take me on the back of his scouter so as to get a view of the entire city (outside of the old city). Trust me, you will not regret booking your tour with Tom. He really went above and beyond call of duty!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Veronica! I would say that the flexibility is the main reason why I get so many positive reviews. As I mentioned during our tour, each of the travelers that book a tour with me is different and I try to adjust the tour to their own preferences so each tour that I deliver is truly unique. I have also had a great time touring with you and I hope to see you again. Best regards, Tom
Tom's really an awesome tour guide. He is very well versed with local history of the place we visited and is a good story teller. He made me fall in love with the beautiful city of Dubrovnik. In the end of the tour, I felt like I spent few hours with a friend as opposed to a tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Alvina! I must say that I also enjoyed touring with you and that the hours we spent together just flew by. It makes me really proud to see that I assisted in making you fall in love with my hometown. Thanks again for this great review and I hope to see you again in Dubrovnik. Best regards, Tom
Benjamin GriffithMississippi, 38655, United States
Tom with his driver Mike took us high above Dubrovnik to the Mountain of St. Serge with a breathtaking view of old town and the Dalmatian coastal islands. We visited the Arboretum along the coast north of the city and enjoyed several sites that were in Games of Thrones scenes. Tom got us started on the fantastic walk around the wall surrounding the city, even picked up lunch for us. He was a superb guide for our second day in Dubrovnik, capped off with a concert and dinner at the highly recommended Kopun.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ben&Kathy, Thank you so much for this great review. As you booked the two tours with similar itinerary I figured out that we can arrange something different and since you were great Game of Thrones fans I thought that a combination of filming points outside Dubrovnik would work best. I am glad to see that the tour really hit the spot. I hope that you'll enjoy the rest of your Croatian holiday as much as our tours in Dubrovnik and its surroundings. Tom
Benjamin GriffithMississippi, 38655, United States
Tom was an excellent guide for our first visit to Dubrovnik and went the extra mile in introducing us to the fascinating historic sites that were the setting for dozens of scenes from the Game of Thrones HBO series. Tom's knowledge of this gem of the Adriatic was substantial, and we enjoyed his sense of humor and awareness of the many factors that can turn a good tour into a truly memorable one. His command of the English language is outstanding, and we have booked him for another day long tour tomorrow.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Ben. I am so happy that you found my GOT meets history of Dubrovnik tour enjoyable. It is always great to meet fellow Game of Thrones fans and acquaint them with the real history behind the movie set locations and is really rewarding to see that they appreciated the effort, as you did. Give my regards to Kathy, Best regards or better yet Valar Morghulis. Tom
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks!
Mark G HannaUnited States
Tom was the kind of guide you'd wish every teacher you ever had had been like. His knowledge is amazing but to it, he added humor and personality that made ending the tour the only part you won't like. I've used many guides through Tours By Locals in many cities, all impressive, but Tom has been one of the best.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Mark. I hope that our introductory tour has also given you some ideas on what to do in the next couple of days while in Dubrovnik. Should you have any questions, feel free to contact me. Best regards, Tom
Darryn WolffSan Francisco, CA, United States
Very attentive and informative. He was super amazing when handling our large group and we appreciate everything we learned and saw today. We had an amazing time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Darryn, Thank you. I am happy that my services have contributed to yours overall experience of Dubrovnik, especially since your cruise ship schedule featured so many interesting ports. Give my regards to the rest of the group. Tom
Tom was a great guide. He was enthusiastic, very knowledgable, and the highlight of our trip. We were a group of 6 with 4 of us being fans of the show. The tour however included historical information about Dubrovnic which kept the rest of our group intrigued. I'd highly recommend Tom and his tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Kerstin. I am glad that the tour worked out for both GOT fans and non-fans. The Game of Thrones themed tour is designed as a fun way to learn the amazing history of Dubrovnik while visiting the familiar panoramic locations from the TV-show. Give my regards to the rest of the group. Tom
Juan G.United States
Tom was a superb guide, very knowledgeable and very responsive to our requests. Much better than any guides provided by group tours purchased from cruise ships
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks. Usually, the group tours offered aboard the cruise ships feature guides that are contracted by the handling agents which are largely driven by the pricing factor (meaning: the lowest rate will get you more tours). The mass in nubers doesn't necessarily yield the satisfactory result both for guide or the traveler and I'm glad that you noticed the difference. Just as other ToursByLocals guides, I aim to provide the personalized touring experience and am always glad to see that I suceeded. Tom
Norman BrickmanUnited States
Tomislav is an excellent guide and we appreciated his in-depth knowledge of local history. We are happy to give him a well-deserved five star rating for this tour. We will definitely be recommending him to any of our friends that are planning a visit to Dubrovnik.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Norman. Give my regards to your wife and your Canadian friends. Best regards, Tom
Tom, speaking in perfect English, gave us history of Dubrovnik plus Game of Thrones film locations. He carried with him a photo album of Dubrovnik Game of Thrones scenes ---very helpful in making us remember GoT scenes. It was a very rainy day but Tom made the tour so interesting that we didnt mind the rain much.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Aurora, Thank you so much for this kind review. I am happy that the tour made your day in spite to really awful weather that we experienced. I hope that the weather will be better during the rest of your Croatian holiday. Give my regards to your family. Tom
Tom gave us a great tour of Dubrovnik. Many from my group commented that this was the highlight of their cruise !!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Danielle, I am glad that the tour worked out for your group especially because your cruise included the stops at many renowned European tourist destinations. Give my regards to the rest of the group. Tom
Tom was superb, very flexible with a lot of knowledge of GOT.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Hanne, I hope that your grandson Jonas will fondly remember this birthday tour. Even though, the tour was designed to cater to his fandom, I am glad that you also enjoyed it. Give my regards to the rest of the family. Tom
Daniel DehnUnited States
Top notch tour. Best GOTSites and good info on history and culture. Would love to come back and do it again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Daniel, Thanks. In case you're back in Dubrovnik, give me a shout as I'll be privileged to show you more of this amazing city and its surroundings. Best regards, Tom
Sami BosworthUnited States
I can't say enough how much I loved our Game of Thrones tour! Tom was our tour guide and I DEFINITELY recommend him. He was incredibly knowledgeable about Game of Thrones as well as the history of Dubrovnik which was great. He really customized the tour around our personal preferences which was what made the tour so awesome. I also want to point out that he gave us recommendations for the rest of our stay in Dubrovnik and I'm so glad he did. Great tour, even better guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sami, What is there else left to say, but THANK YOU for this great review! I am pleased to see that you liked the tour as well as the suggestions I gave you for the rest of your stay in Dubrovnik. Should you ever come back, let me know as there are several other amazing places that can easily reached in a form of a half day trip from Dubrovnik. Best regards, Tom
A great tour! Tom met 4 of us on time as arranged and walked us around the old town including the walls. Tom was very knowledgeable and has a pleasant easygoing manner...and a good sense of humour. Our tour took about 3 hours which was perfect. We all would strongly recommend Tomislav (Tom) to anyone coming to this region.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Mark, I also enjoyed touring with you. Give my regards to the rest of the group. Tom
Susan GerardUnited States
Despite some unexpected cold, rainy weather, our tour with Tom was delightful and fun. He is very entertaining and considerate -- not to mention a treasure trove of information! When we saw the local weather conditions, we expected a dull, boring morning tour and a welcome return to the ship. We got anything but that. Tom provided a delightful, fun filled few hours and we could not have been more pleased. All of us were sad to see it end. He is an extraordinarily good guide! We appreciated his services.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Susan! Best regards, Tom
Ellen FieldsUnited States
We had an amazing day with Tom in Dubrovnik. He has deep knowledge and passion and we saw the beauty and history of Dubrovnik through his eyes. Tom was generous with his time, very friendly and a pleasure to spend the day with. We will remember this tour forever and I recommend Tom to anyone who wants to really enjoy and understand this amazing city. Tom is a great!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ellen, The itinerary and the pace of my tours is hardly ever set in stone. Providing that I'm not booked up later in the day, the tour can easily end up lasting longer than the original itinerary envisioned. You were a great group to tour with and I'm really happy that the touring arrangement worked out for you as it did for me. Best regards, Tom
Great guide, great day, great fun! Tomislav is such a knowledgeable, animated guide. We had a great overview of Dubrovnik with a good balance of Game of Thrones sites and "inside stories" for the GOT junkies and fascinating non GOT information for the rest of us. It was particularly poignant to view the war museum with someone who was a child during that time - very balanced and personal but not a "downer" on the rest of the day. Itinerary adjusted to inside sites during brief bouts of rain. FABULOUS DAY,
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Cheers Ramona, You were a great crowd to tour with and I'm happy that everything worked out just fine in spite of rain. My tours are always adapted to the particular interests of each traveler and it's always nice to hear that the entire group enjoyed my cocktail of information about the contemporary life, GOT and close and distant history of Dubrovnik. Tom
Theresa SheffieldUnited States
We had a wonderful day with Tomislav. Old Town Dubrovnik is so interesting and he knows everything historical and related to Game of Thrones. It was a wonderful day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Theresa, Give my regards to the rest of the group. Valar Morghulis ;-) Tom
Theresa SheffieldUnited States
We truly enjoyed our tour of Trsteno and Ston. This scenery is beautiful, the history rich, and their is just enough "Game of Thrones" to make it fun!!! Tomislav is very knowledgeable and gives a unique experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Theresa, Thanks. You were a great crowd to tour with and our 2-day tour was perhaps the most fun tour I had in a while. I am happy that you shared my enthusiasm with the GOT and the magical scenery of Southern Croatia. Best regards, Tom
Maria del CastilloUnited States
Thank you Tomislav (Tom) of Tours by Locals in Dubrovnik for the best personalized city tour ever! From exchanging emails, to meeting him and finally doing the city tour, everything was done without a glitch. Tom is very professional and easy to talk to. He asked what our interests were through our email exchanges before we met him, so he could create a perfect tour for my family. During the tour, Tom made sure we were all comfortable and that we learned a lot about Dubrovnik. Great tour! Great guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Maria, What is there else to say apart from a big THANKS for this kind review! All my tours are adapted and arranged in concert with traveler's personal interests and preferences so none of them is ever delivered in a same way and is a unique touring experience. Judging from your extensive review, I have correctly prepared the homework and the tour was a resounding success! Give my regards to the rest of the family. Tom
Jill MargolickUnited States
We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 hours spent touring the city of Dubrovnik with our guide, Tom. Tom is the perfect guide--he has a wonderful and endearing personality and a thorough knowledge of his city and its history. He is so easy to be with and totally responsive to any and all questions asked. His energy is contagious--we climbed and toured and nobody even got tired--we were too enthralled with both our guide and his charming city! Tom's command of the English language is first rate, too!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jill, I am so happy to see that you enjoyed the tour so much. I will make sure to let you know if the road takes me to 'Motor City' as I'd love to see all of you again. Give my regards to the rest of the group. Tom
Todd ThorsonUnited States
We took a private GOT tour with Tomislav "Tom" and were not disappointed. We read many reviews about different tours and guides, but one guide stood out with consistently great reviews - and that was Tom. We were interested in combining a little history of Dubrovnik along with GOT sites. We shared that desire with Tom, and he was able to provide a customized tour for us. Tom's background in teaching history was very apparent and made the tour both educational and entertaining.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Todd. All of my tours are always carefully arranged to the specific requirements of each traveler and I'm always happy to see that the outcome was satisfactory. You were a great group to tour with and I hope that you enjoyed the rest of your holiday as much as the time we spent together touring Dubrovnik. Best regards, Tom
Carol WhiteUnited States
Tom was a great guide - knowledgeable, helpful and great at getting us around the crowds - it helps to know the "back alleys!" He stopped frequently for pictures and rest on a hot day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Carol, Your ship pulled in during the one of the busiest days in Dubrovnik (with around 10.000 cruise ship visitors and a great deal of day-trippers from the surrounding area) so I tried my best to avoid the crowds and adapt the tour to your pace without missing any of the most important Dubrovnik landmarks. Your great review is a proof that I succeeded in this task and I thank you for it once again. Best regards, Tom
David BerryUnited States
Absolutely fantastic guide with a great command of the English language and so knowledgeable of the Croatian history. One of the best guides we have ever had.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David. It really means a lot to me to hear that you found me 'one of the best guides you ever had'. I gave my best during our tour and I am happy that the effort was appreciated. I am looking forward to seeing you again in Dubrovnik Tom
Wonderful tour by a friendly, knowledgeable and flexible local named Tomislav. Tom answered every email within 24 hours. He was flexible with his timing, willing to delay the start of the tour when our Game of Thrones pre-tour lunch was delayed by a very busy restaurant. He paced the tour to our needs and walking abilities and frequently checked that he was meeting our requirements. His knowledge of both GoT and Dubrovnik was impressive and did I mention he is funny? I highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Laura, I also had a great time touring with you. What more can I say? Your review says it all - flexibility and timely response is actually what makes the difference between a good and great guide. Thanks you for this wonderful review! Tom
Joe GardinerUnited Kingdom
This is an excellent, well presented tour. Tom is very well versed and completely up to date with the series. He has a very large book of photographs showing where certain scenes were filmed and I did notice that some other guides didn't have anywhere like the photographic back up he has. Tom will also email a link for all the photos in his album. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour and also the Pizza restaurant he recommended to us, cannot praise high enough.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Joe, I am glad that all the group members enjoyed the tour as well as the recommendations regarding the eating venue. Best regards or better yet Valar Morghulis. Tom
William LeakeUnited States
Tom met us on time and guided us - at the pace we requested - to the locations we wanted after fully explaining our options. A major rain storm caused us to cut the tour short - this was our choice. Tom very carefully walked us back to the tender boat area. We found him to be very open and informative about Dubrovnik.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear William, Thank you for your kind review. I regret if the weather has affected the quality of your tour, but as you stated, I did my best to deliver you safely to your tender boat area. I hope that the weather worked out fine for the rest of your cruising holiday. Tom
Cheryl AltmanUnited States
Our tour of Dubruvnick with Tom was wonderful. He is so knowledgeable of the area in history, culture, and georgraphy. He made the cites we visited alive because of his passion and love of the own. My whole group would recommend him highly - we, also, had a fun time seeing the sighs around town and Lockrum where Game of Thrones has been filmed. Thank you Tomislav!!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Cheryl, Believe me the pleasure was all mine. I really enjoyed our time together and I'm truly honored by your kind review. Give my regards to the rest of the group. Tom
Martha Rosas acostaMexico

Marva WestonAntigua and Barbuda
Tomislav is a wonderful tour guide, on time, knowledgeable, really warm person. We met exactly where he said we would. At first I was worried that my time was too short but Tomislav made sure I left quite happy. He was quite helpful with my picture taking obsession and patient when I needed to slow down. Lol. Overall it was a wonderful tour and I would gladly recommend Tom again and again. He is wonderful. Kind regards Marva Weston
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marva, Thank you. It means a lot to me to hear praises about our tour, especially because of your limited time in Dubrovnik. Give my regards to the girls1 Tom
Kristie WilsonUnited States
Tomislav was an excellent guide and we very much enjoyed his personality and knowledge of the history of Dubrovnick. He also gave very good suggestions for things to see and do. We are very happy we booked him for our first day as we have many good ideas for the rest of our stay.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kristie, Thank you. I had a great time touring with you and your family and I hope that you found my suggestions on what to see, do and eat while in Dubrovnik useful. Best regards, Tom
Cathy DrewUnited States
Tom provided an excellent experience for my 17 yr old niece, who is a huge GoT fan as well as the rest of us who had never watched GoT. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Dubrovnik as well as the plot and production of GoT. Tom brought me to a local jewelers so I could see how jewelry...
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Cathy. Give my regards to your niece and the rest of your family. Tom
Keri CharlesUnited States
Tom was a fantastic guide! He has a great deal of historical knowledge and explained it very well to us. He catered the tour to our needs and it was a true pleasure. Wonderful!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Keri, Thanks. I am happy that the tour appealed both to you and your uncle. Please give my regards to your mum and tell her that I'm sorry for not being able to do the tour with her. Also, please tell her that I'll be at her disposal in case she decides to visit Dubrovnik when she gets better. Tom
Alissa FordUnited States
We had a wonderful tour of the old city with Tom. He was kind enough to change the day of our tour last minute and accommodate us during his very busy schedule. The tour was extremely informative (he is a history professor!) but fun for my teenagers. He was fantastic with the Game of Thrones references. We highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Alissa, I was happy to rearrange my schedule for you as I know how frustrating can it be to lose your luggage (it happened to me more than once). I hope that the rest of your Dubrovnik holiday worked out well and that it developed as nicely as our tour. Give my regards to your family. Tom
We did a GAME OF THROWNES TOUR with Tom on 3/8/16. He was brilliant, his local knowledge & hystory was fantastic he did it at a perfect pace, he gave us valuable advice on our further adventures in Croatia, as well as personal experiences of his life. We highly recommend Tom to future clients & would go as far to say he was our best guide through Croatia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Vicki, Thank you. I am privileged to see that our tour has left such an impact that you found me your best guide through Croatia. Best regards, Tom
Louise ColquhounUnited Kingdom
Tomislav was an excellent guide! He explained a lot about the heritage and history of the city including all of the Games of Thrones information which made the tour much more interesting!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Louise, I hope that you also had a great time during the wedding party in Dubrovnik. And that your quest for buttered shrimps has been completed ;-) Tom
Natalia BealerGreenwood Village, CO, United States
We just completed a 12 day cruise and out of the 10 tour guides we hired, Tom was hands down the BEST! We traveled with our 3 adults children (18, 23 and 25), and he kept all of us engaged and interested in the beauty and history of Dubrovnik. He is also a teacher at the college and knew how to deal with kids that age. Our tour ended at a very nice local restaurant, where we listened to musicians from a wedding at the church across the plaza. So fun! We highly recommend Tomislav!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What can I say? Thanks a lot! Having in mind that you chose several top guides that are featured on ToursByLocals during your cruise this review is more than flattering. It was a pleasure to welcome you and your family in Dubrovnik and I hope that we'll have a chance to meet again. Best regards, Tom
Traci DoyleUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Traci!
Tom is a lecturer in medieval regional history at the local university so certainly knew his stuff. Very friendly and appreciative of our needs. His driver Robert was also outstanding for out excursion up to the old fort on the hill. Definitely recommend both.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Maurice, I have enjoyed touring with you too and I hope that the rest of the cruising holiday was equally enjoyable. Best regards, Tom
Damien MurrayUnited States
Tom gave us a wonderful tour that demonstrated his impressive knowledge of both GOT [Game of Thrones] and the history of Dubrovnik. We would highly recommend him as a tour guide. We especially liked how he used his knowledge of both GOT and Dubrovnik to give us a break walking up the city's many steps.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Damien, Thank you! I am happy to hear that you were thrilled with my performance. As I often mention, the tour is designed to cater to traveler's own preferences so the tour always includes the snippets about the Dubrovnik history and contemporary life in Croatia as well as the proposals on what to do during your stay in Dubrovnik. Best regards, Tom
Debra LundUnited States
Tomislav is a fantastic guide.. if you are a Game of Thrones fan like we are then this is an absolute must do tour. It is strenuous as other reviews have stated but Tomislav takes his time and is accommodating of everyone in the group. This was so much more enjoyable with just the 6 of us, we saw other tours with groups of 25 - 50 people and they looked bored or couldn't see what they were supposed to be looking at, you won't have that issue on this tour. Also walk the city walls, you won't regret it!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Debra! You have perfectly explained the reasons why to book the private Game of Thrones tour with me. Most of the GOT-themed tours on offer around Dubrovnik now are depersonalized massive group tours with uninterested guides (some of which aren't even Dubrovnik natives). I am trying to make a difference and I aim to provide a customized tour so you can fully enjoy both facts (Dubrovnik history) and fiction (GOT element) in magnificent settings of my hometown. Give my regards to your family. Tom
Paul SimmonsUnited Kingdom
We went on the 2.5 hour Game of Thrones tour in Dubrovnik. A family of four including two teenage boys who are big GOT fans. We are so glad we went on this tour with the local guide Tom who took us to a very large number of the scenes from the series and provided valuable added insights to the show. He also gave us great information on the city and its history and also helped us with our plans for the evening and the next day. Thank you very much for an enjoyable and educational tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Paul! Give my regards to your lovely family. Tom
Tim BradyUnited States
Tom was fantastic - extremely knowledgable and fun. We have two kids, 13 and 12 yrs old. He did a wonderful job including them in his tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Tim, I had a great time touring with your family. Give my regards to your kids. Tom
Jason HumphriesUnited Kingdom
This was a great way to start our holiday in Dubrovnik. Tom is able to impart his vast historical knowledge of the city in a clear and entertaining way. It's well worth the money to have a private tour rather than to be part of a large group. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jason, I am glad that you enjoyed my personal contribution to your first encounter to Dubrovnik. I hope that my suggestions on what to do and see while here will come in handy. Best regards, Tom
Kenna RicheyUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Kenna!
Rachel GoldrichUnited States
My wife (Rachel Goldrich) and I did a tour with Tomislav M and absolutely loved it! He was incredibly knowledgeable and engaging and we had a delightful time! Would would highly recommend him and the tour to our friends! -- Ariel Ennis
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rachel&Ariel, Thank you so much for this kind review. Valar Morghulis. Tom
Jeffrey HansenUnited States
Tom was great!! Very fun for any Game of Thrones fans. Tom also taught us a great deal about the real history of Dubrovnik and of Croatia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jeff! I had a great time touring with you and your family. I hope that the rest of your Croatian/Slovenian holiday was equally fun and informative. Best regards or better yet Valar Morghulis, Tom
Kathleen KortzUnited States
Tomislav was a fabulous guide, full of information and stories about Dubrovnik. It is clear he loves his country and its history, and he is funny and friendly!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kathleen, I am pleased that everything worked out for you and that you were happy with my services. I have also enjoyed touring with you and was extremely pleased to see that you appreciated my input on Croatian and Dubrovnik history. Give my regards to the rest of the group. Tom
Jim HirschingerUnited States
I don't think anyone could have given us a better tour of Dubrovnik than Tomislav. He is very personable. He is a fount of information on history, and he tailored and paced the tour to our desires and questions. We came away from our time with him feeling that we had gained an understanding of the city's layered past and present.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jim, Thank you so much for this kind review. I have also enjoyed our tour and I hope that the rest of your sailing holiday will continue to be as rewarding as our tour in Dubrovnik. Best regards, Tom
Stephen B.United States
Tom went to wonderful lengths to make sure we got to see and enjoy Dubrovnik. He seemed to take special enjoyment in making sure we understood both the old town and the connection to current events. When we visited the top of the cable car he took the time to climb up on a landing to take our picture, and cared enough about helping tourists he took pictures of several other people as well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Steve, Thank you for this wonderful review. The best way to explore the city is to arrange the tour in a leisurely pace that would allow you to take in all that Dubrovnik has to offer. Since you had a full day at your disposal, I realized that the best thing to do is to split the tour in two so you could rest and avoid the crowds. Thanks again and best regards, Tom
Amanda BattmanUnited Kingdom
Tom is just great. Our group of 8 were captivated by him throughout our tour. Dispite never having seen an pisode of Game of Thrones we all vowed to watch at least one episode. Dubrovnik was a complete surpise to us all and we loved it! Tom made the history of the city come alive. He totally deserves his Tours by Locals awards.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Amanda! I have thoroughly enjoyed touring with your group as well. I was happy to share my knowledge about my hometown and was thrilled to see that my enthusiasm with Dubrovnik was contagious. It is also nice to hear that your visit to Dubrovnik has affected your decision to start watching my favorite show, the Game of Thrones. I hope that watching the show will remind you of the good times we shared during this tour. Best regards, Tom
Frederick KirchnerShreveport,, LA, United States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Fred, Thanks! Best regards, Tom
Margaret CollinsUnited States
Tom's tour was informative, tailored to our wishes, and humor filled. I'd recommend him highly to anyone interested in a tour of Dubronik.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Peggy, Thank you. It is great to hear that Dwight and you enjoyed the time in Dubrovnik, in spite of the weather (which could have been much better). I hope that your tour to Montenegro and Bosnia on following day was equally interesting and humor filled. Best regards, Tom
Had an Old Town and Game of Thrones tour all mixed into one tour. Realy super tour as we are big fans of GOT so my wife and I got to experience the history of Old town, walked the walls, and took in all the film locations of GOT. Tom had all the scenes in a file so it made it very easy to see and rember where and when in the series these sites were used, plus she could quote the series and episode number which was impressive. Do yourself a favour, just book Tom, he's terrific friendly and knowledgable
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear John, Thank you. I hope that you will have equally great time in Split and in Italy. Give my regards to Deb. All the best. Tom
Patrick SalonyUnited States
A fantastic experience. Not only does Tom teach a university-level history course on Dubrovnik, but he also has a background in international relations that allowed him to discuss the past history and current affairs of Dubrovnik and Croatia. My wife and I love to walk and to learn; Tom provided the perfect tour for us. We have used Tours by Locals several times and the guides keep getting better!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Chris&Pat, Thank you. I tried to squeeze in as much as possible in the short time that we were together and I hope that I succeeded. Enjoy Budapest and rest assure that my ToursByLocals colleagues from there will be up to the task. Regards, Tom
Karin LehotskyUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Karin!
Anthony CohenUnited States
Tom was a superb guide. His knowledge of Dubrovnik and GOT tours was fantastic. Our 22 year old son said the tour "exceeded his expectations". Tom is always happy and adjusting the schedule if necessary to meet everyone's needs. His recommendations were excellent. We recommend Tom to anyone that wants to tour Dubronik for any type of tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Anthony, Thank you so much for this kind review. Please extend my regards to your lovely family. Tom
Stacie CarnettUnited States
We arrived in the down season for Croatia and weren't sure if we'd be able to go on any tours. We found toursbylocals.com and booked the Game of Thrones tour in Dubrovnik. We received a quick response from the company and a response from our tour guide, Tomislav immediately after. He helped us find the right bus to get on and where to meet him. The tour was extremely thorough and we left feeling like we definitely got our money's worth. We greatly appreciate Tomislav taking us on a once in a lifetime tour
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Stacie, I am really glad that everything worked out just fine, considering the fact that you arrived in the low season and that the weather was a bit moody. On the other hand, you have had a unique opportunity to see Dubrovnik/King's Landing without the usual tourist hustle&bustle as we had the Old Town literally to ourselves. I am happy to hear that my services also helped in enhancing the overall experience of Dubrovnik. Tom P.S. Keep on watching the show for more exciting Dubrovnik locations!
Julia KirschUnited Kingdom
My husband and I had an absolutely wonderful Game of Thrones tour with Tom on New Years' Eve! We experienced so many sights and locations used in the TV show - Tom was prepared with a self-made photo book and knowledge of exact seasons/episodes/scenes to really put us "in the show." Additionally, his experiences living in Dubrovnik gave us some great stories about the cast and crew and what the city is like when they are in town. Highly recommended!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Julia! I hope that you found the New Year's party in Dubrovnik just as memorable and fun as our tour. Keep on watching the show for more great Dubrovnik locations! Valar Morghulis. Tom
Carola De JongNetherlands
It was a beautiful sunny day on our GOT tour.We were 6 persons, some very interested by GOT, others not so interested. We had all a great time.Tomislav took us to the fortress and into the city. He showed us many places where scenes of GOT has been filmed. He provided us with lots of information and pictures. He was kind, knowledgeable and I highly recommend him as tourguide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Carola. The tour is designed to combine the best of both worlds: facts (Dubrovnik's history, traditions, contemporary life...) and fiction (GOT element). The ratio really depends on the travelers and I enjoy catering to diverse types of clientele. Best regards, Tom
Marty CalihanUnited States
Tom is very highly recommended for the Dubrovnik Experience Tour. He was knowledgeable and interesting regarding every topic we brought up. He was willing to go totally "off script" as much as we wanted him to (which was most of the time) and talk about Balkan/Yugoslavian/Croatian/Dubrovnik history. His education in history is clear, but he was unusually good in describing how economic forces had driven a lot of historical developments.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for these kind words Marty. I doubt that I have ever delivered the same tour twice in my entire career as a tour guide as the story about Dubrovnik/Croatia/ex-Yugoslavia can be told from several different perspectives depending on which topic is most interesting for the traveler. I must say that your questions and have helped to steer the tour and I'm glad that the outcome was more than satisfactory. Best regards, Tom
Lisa ConnerUnited States
Tomislav gave a 5 out of 5 tour to our family group of 8 in Dubrovnik. He was so competent and his English so superb that his humor translated perfectly. When we walked past a restaurant at the end of our tour a group stood and clapped for him and shouted adulation - it was his morning tour J. Best guide we ever had and we spoke fondly of him the rest of the week we were in Europe. Lisa Conner.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this great review Lisa! You were a fun crowd to tour with and it was a pleasure to meet you. Give my regards to the rest of the family. Tom
Heidi CanarelliHenderson, NV, United States
Tom was fantastic. He was extremely knowledgable and interesting. We left Croatia with a new understanding and appreciation for this beautiful country. I would highly recommend him as a guide for this area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Heidi. Best regards, Tom
Ward EnglishUnited States
Three of the five of us have trouble walking. Tom did a GREAT job customizing the tour to fit our needs. He "parked" the older folks at a nice restaurant with nearby shopping while two of us walked the wall with him. So much fun. Totally pleased with our tour and our guide! Would ask for him again, for sure.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ward, Thank you for these kind words. Moving around the Old Town of Dubrovnik can be a bit challenging for the persons with limited mobility so I'm glad that the ladies found the tour as enjoyable as much as you did. Please extend my regards to the ladies and tell them that it was a pleasure to tour with them. Tom
Janet ClarkUnited States
Tomislav was very well informed and a lot of fun. Great time was had by all!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Cheers Jinny! Give my regards to the rest of the group. Tom
Elizabeth NortonNew Zealand
Tom was entertaining and informative. We never felt rushed. He has a great command of the English language and has a feel for explaining history that included humour and facts and kept us all engaged for the 5 hours we were with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Elizabeth, Thank you very much for this wonderful review. I hope that the drive back to Podgora went smoothly as our Dubrovnik tour. Enjoy the rest of your Croatian holiday and give my regards to the rest of the group. Tom
Ciara ColemanUnited Kingdom
We were met at the cruise port and the van was very comfortable. Tom was a fantastic guide and tailored a tour for us especially, taking all our requests (e.g. trying local wines and oysters) and wishes into account and creating a custom tour for us. He was also happy to take photos and videos for us so we would all be included (there were 6 in the group!). He was so friendly and easy to chat to and knew SO much about the history of Dubrovnik and also Game of Thrones trivia and locations about the city.
Steven ScharkssUnited States
Tom was great! We loved our tour with him and found him quite knowledgeable. Afterward we found out first hand that he is also quite a wine connoisseur ��
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Steve, If you enjoyed the tour as much as the Croatian wine, than it means that I did everything well :-) Give my regards to your lovely wife. Cheers! Tom
John M.Plymouth, MN, United States
Our group of 8 was very fortunate to be on a cruise that spent 2 days in Dubrovnik so Tomislav created a custom two day tour for us. Tomislav was EXCELLENT in every aspect and is very highly recommended by all of us. He is very enjoyable to be with, very accommodating and has incredible knowledge of his country and it's history. He took us to several special spots to understand better life in Croatia away from the tourist. We visited local restaurants and really enjoyed the local cuisine - very fun!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jack! We have literally had 'a lot on our plate' and I'm really happy to hear that you equally enjoyed and appreciated all that the South Croatia has to offer: rich history, interesting traditions, Mediterranean climate and above all our cuisine and wines! I must say that I enjoyed touring with you just as much and I hope that the rest of your European vacation is going to be as nice and exciting as our tour on 25&26 Sep. Happy trails! Tom
Kayleigh FishUnited Kingdom
Very knowledgeable, fun tour guide. Had an excellent knowledge of both Dubrovnik history and also the GOT. Happy to spend extra time with customers and added a few additional quirks to the tour "shame" "shame" was funny.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kayleigh&Marc, Thank you. I must say that I have also enjoyed the "Game of Shame" as much as you. I do hope that the weather will be much better tomorrow so you can enjoy your last day in Dubrovnik as it should be. Best regards, Tom
Gary MurphyUnited Kingdom
What a man! What Tomislav doesn't know about Dubrovnik is not worth knowing! This was a fantastic time spent in his company and we feel we really know a lot more about this wonderful city and its history. He conducted tour in a very friendly way and was open on anything we wanted to do and wether it was worth looking at etc. He was very professional and a credit to your company. Although we toured on worst weather possible with rain and hail, we managed to complete walls prior to it getting too bad!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Gary. I am glad that I managed to make up for the lousy weather that we've been experiencing during our tour. However, thanks to weather we were fully able to explore the full potential of Dubrovnik museums which gave you the perfect insight in rich history of Dubrovnik. Give my regards to your lovely wife. Tom
What can we say about Tomislav. He is the BEST. We were 6 friends on a cruise. His emails to organize were spot on. From the minute we met we knew it was going to be great and it turned out to be the best day. His knowledge, passion and explanation of his country was excellent. I had been to Dubrovnik before but Tom showed us places we should have seen the first time, and explained the history in a way that we could all understand. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in a tour in Croatia
Joseph JakackyUnited States
Tomislav provides a great and in depth experience. The tour he gave us allowed us to see everything we wanted to see in the time allowed. He was very insightful with the history of Dubrovnik I throughly enjoyed the entire tour. He also did allow time to enjoy the sites. Our tour was at a relaxed and comfortable pace.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Joe, Thank you for this kind review. I hope that I will have a chance to organize another amazing holiday for you and your wife once you return to Croatia. All the best. Tom
Amanda DavidUnited Kingdom
Great tour - Tom was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, the still pics from the GOT series were a bonus as they showed clearly which scenes had been shot in each location. Definitely worth paying for a private tour, will recommend him to everyone!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Amanda! Valar Morghulis. Tom
Robert ZerdenUnited States
Tomislav is that perfect combination of very fun and incredibly informative. We saw Dubrovnik from an insiders perspective and left our tour with both a real love of the town, and an in-depth understanding of their tumultuous history. Highly, highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robert, Thank you. I must say that I also enjoyed your company and am extremely glad to hear that my services helped you to fully experience what Dubrovnik stands for and what it really has to offer. It is, as we all agreed, the place which one leaves with a firm decision to return again. Give my regards to your lovely wife. Tom
Ginny van HespenUnited States
I had wanted to visit Dubrovnik for years. Tom helped me realize a visit that exceeded my great expectations. He communicated ahead of time to help plan our time schedule. He is eminently qualified to give a historical tour of Dubrovnik, but he is creative enough to make lively and interesting commentary on the long-ago past and the present. He gave us a great recommendation on a local's lunch venue after our tour, where we could get Sporki Makaruli. I give 5 stars to Tom and to the city of Dubrovnik.
Wayne YoshigaiUnited States
Tomislav gave us an excellent overview walking tour of Dubrovnik that included highlights of several museums. He also showed us sights of the city that we would never have found on our own. And he gave us an very interesting explanation of the role of the city throughout history and his personal perspective of the recent war. We wanted to get a local's perspective of the city and its history and got that and much more. We highly recommend Tomislav!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Wayne! I hope that you found my suggestions on what to do while in Dubrovnik area useful. Best regards, Tom
We had an amazing day with Tomislav, he was friendly, knowledgeable and very kind. We felt very comfortable with him and he looked after our small group of 8 very well. We would highly recommend your company and this particular guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Glenda, I hope that the rest of your holiday was as enjoyable as the two days we spent in Dubrovnik together. Best regards, Tom
Stephanie ReedUnited States
Tom was prepared, informative and enthusiastic about the tour. He also was willing to work with us and gave us the historical perspective on Dubrovnik as well as Game of Thrones sites. He also set us up with a wonderful restaurant. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Stephanie, Thank you for this great review. It was a pleasure to know you and to work with you. Give my regards to the rest of the group. Tom
Frode JurnhartUnited States
Tom was great! On time and very friendly and full of knowledge both about Game of Thrones and Dubrovnik. You will not regret booking this tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Frode! I hope that you'll enjoy Qarth as much as you did King's Landing. Valar Morghulis. Tom
Elaine BarrettUnited States
Tom was fantastic. It was very hot that day and he made sure we found a little shade and had water while we were walking on the wall. He knows all the history of Dubrovnik. Knew a great place to buy replicas of the famous buttons of ancient class system. He found a great place for lunch too. So thoughtful and even got us on the right but to make it back to our ship. Elaine Barrett September, 2015
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Elaine. Give my regards to the rest of the group. Tom
Dean GanzhornUnited States
Tom was great, really new the show and has a book he takes along with actual pictures of the filming shot and puts you right in the same place. If you are a GOT viewer this is a must do with him!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Dean, Valar Morghulis. Tom
Katherine CollinsUnited States
Tom gave us a great Game of Thrones tour in Dubrovnik! He is a college history professor and provided lots of information about the history of the city along with all the GOT trivia and filming locations. If you are in Dubrovnik take a tour with Tom!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this wonderful review Katie. I hope that you enjoyed the rest of your holiday in Croatia as much as our tour. Warmest regards, Tom
Tomislav was a fabulous guide. He tailored the tour to our interests and showed us all the areas that he thought would interest us. He took the time to find interesting sights for us to photograph and helped us with other suggestions on how to spend our time in Dubrovik. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would highly recommend Tom for your tour guide around Dubrovnik.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Liesel & Scott, Thank you for this kind review. I am glad that our special interest tour worked out fine for you and that the rest of your Croatian holiday will be equally enjoyable. I wish you happy trails and more breathtaking photo opportunities (for which Croatia is well known for). Best regards, Tom
Hilary MackintoshUnited Kingdom
Tomislav was very friendly and knowledgable. We had a difficult start as we were nearly an hour late due to circumstances beyond our control, and he changed the meeting point and order of the tour in order to fit everything in and work around the difficulties. He made the tour a fun experience and we would totally recommend his services.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Hilary, I am glad that everything worked out well in the end. The downpour that we experienced on that day caused a standstill in the traffic and although our tour was a bit delayed, I will definitely always remember our lunch break - a traditional meal at the 17th-century fortress which also served as the major Game of Thrones filming location! Valar Morghulis Tom
Christine SmithUnited Kingdom
Excellent! We really enjoyed our tour with Tom, this was the best tour of our holiday. Highly recommended if you are a GoT fan; you will love seeing the filming sites and hearing the stories behind them. Tom is very knowledgable about the series (and the books) and also about local history, making for a varied and very interesting couple of hours.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Chrissie, Thanks for a great review. I have had fun touring with you as well, in spite to the fact that the downpour has somewhat limited our mobility. Give my regards to Barry and Harry. Tom
John C.United Kingdom
Wonderful tour, covering the Game of Thrones sets, but also background and history of Dubrovnik. We really enjoyed ourselves.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Cheers John! Valar Morghulis Tom
Julie KitchemanUnited Kingdom

Sam SotoodehUnited States
Very professional, flexible and accommodating. Went above and beyond. Will definitely use him again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Sam, It will be a privilege to arrange another unforgettable Dubrovnik holiday for you. I just hope that you'll have a chance to stay a bit longer next time so you can fully enjoy what Dubrovnik region has to offer. Tom
Theodore HoskinsonUnited States
Tom was very knowledgeable and informative. He was more than willing to tailor our tour to our specific desires. We were able to get a real sense of the town. I would highly recommend him as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Ted!
Eric SukumarUnited States
Tomislav was incredible on our tour, showing us so many GoT sites and explaining the history behind everything. He even took us on a side tour to the gladiator arena where Prince Oberyn fought The Mountain!! I was very happy with my experience and would recommend Tom to anyone looking for a comprehensive and enjoyable Game of Thrones tour in Dubrovnik.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Well, what else I could do for a true fan that came dressed up as Oberyn? Although the hotel Belvedere has been sold to private proprietors, there is still a way to get there ;-) Either way, I am glad that you enjoyed the tour. Give my regards to the rest of the guys. Valar Morghulis. Tom
Gordon CessfordHong Kong
Excellent guide and tour. Great knowledge of GOT as well as historical and political events. Would highly recommend this Guide!

Rose EdwardsNew South Wales, 2795, Australia
Tomislav was one of the best guides we have ever encountered, he was prompt, professional , knowledgeable , kind and considerate. We loved his enthusiasm and was so well prepared for our Game of Thrones and old city tour. it was an absolute pleasure to be guided by Tomislav, its an experience we will remember for a long long time. If you are considering booking a tour in Dubrovnik dont look past Tomislav, you will have the best guide ever. Thank you Tomislav, you have made our memories very special
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this kind comment Rose. Best regards, or better yet Valar Morghulis :-) Tom
Rosemary MadiaUnited States
Tom was outstanding! Not only did we see the sights of Dubrovnik, but his Game of Thrones knowledge was staggering! We saw so much in a short amount of time, enjoyed a picnic lunch by the waterfront, climbed up to the fortress, saw where scenes of GoT were filmed and he filled our minds with the history of the town. He also made a reservation at a restaurant that two in our party enjoyed immensely. We highly recommend Tom for any tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Rosemary, I am glad that everything worked out fine. Give my regards to the boys. All the best! Tom
Sue J.United Kingdom
We had a fantastic tour with Tom. He gave a great blend of information to suit everyone's interests. His Historical/ political/ cultural / local knowledge of Dubrovnik is outstanding. We thoroughly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Sue, Give my regards to Shane, Jemma&Ella. Tom
Marcus EllingtonUnited States
Excellent tour guide. Super friendly. Very knowledgable of the show as well as the historical background of Dubrovnik. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Marcus. I am glad that you enjoyed the tour. Please extend my regards to your wife. Tom
Margo WheelerUnited States
Tomis was an outstanding guide. He was right on time and right where we could find him. His English is perfect and his background photos of the locations we visited was wonderful. We only made the reservation the night before, so even if you think you may be too late, try anyway. It is definitely worth it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for these kind words Margo. I hope that your Dubrovnik/King's Landing Experience will enable you to enjoy the next season of the Game of Thrones even more. Valar Morghulis. Tom
Tom took us on a GoT tour, the ship arrived 2hrs late so our tour was a little rushed but Tom did a great job within the time frame & still return to the ship on time, we wanted to purchase a treasure typical of the region, he took us to TEDI Tadej Civljak to buy an age old craft of a Silver Ball necklace for our daughters 21st, it is beautiful and I believe authentic unlike the imitations offered elsewhere. Darko Simunovic was our driver,he was excellent company, we are very happy to have met him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Rona, Darko&Tedi extend their regards. All the best Tom
Clare DowningUnited Kingdom
Tom was extremely helpful in stepping in for EvoC who cancelled our trip due to another commitment. We were delighted with the preparation and thought that went into the tour which was customised to appeal to our 2 teenage sons. What was particularly interesting was Tom's knowledge of Balkan history which he explained and brought to life as we toured the old city walls. A very memorable experience. Tom also with the driver Daniel gave us lots of ideas for places to see and eat at including Izvor.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Clare, Thank you for this kind comment. Taking over tours from colleagues can pose a challenge as it is difficult to know what has previously been agreed with the guide and the traveler. However, judging from your praises I can rest assure that the job was well done:-) Give my regards to Colin, Joe and Harry. Tom
William GarlandUnited States
My partner and I toured the Old Town of Dubrovnik with Tom on July 2, 2015. He is an exceptional guide with a wealth of information about the landmarks and history of the Town. Our tour was distinguished by the depth and breadth of his knowledge which he generously shared, especially the historical, political & cultural background of Dubrovnik, the country of Croatia and the region. His English is flawless, his personality well suited for a guide. Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Bill, I hope that the rest of your Croatian holiday will be equally enjoyable and that the information I provided during our tour will help you in understanding and appreciating the country and its people. Happy trails! Tom

Tomislav is a fantastic guide. He is interesting and funny on both the fictional (GoT) and real history of Dubrovnik, and he is extremely knowledgeable on both. It was a real pleasure to be shown around by someone who knows the town so well. Can't recommend him highly enough.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Graham, It makes me really happy to hear praises about my tour, especially because of the recent proliferation of GOT-themed tours by other tour guides. As you probably noticed, there is a subtle difference in the type of tour that I offer and the rest of the touring market. Keep on watching the show for more cool locations! Valar Morghulis. Tom
Ardice HartryUnited States
Tomislav was a great tour guide -- the information he provided was interesting, he was flexible, and he had a great sense of humor. The tour was perfect for our family, as we wanted to learn a lot about the history of Dubrovnik ... but it was also fun to see where different scenes of Game of Thrones were shot. It was a good mix of "fact and fiction", and Tom was the perfect guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Ardice, I hope that you'll have great time touring through Montenegro and Albania. Give my regards to the rest of the family. Tom
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Per!
Janet HayesUnited States
I am so happy I booked Tom for our tour of Dubrovnik! He is so knowledgeable in so many areas. I don't think there was a question he couldn't answer! We learned so much from him - but in such an enjoyable way. I had never used Tours by Locals before, and although I'm sure Tom is one of the best, I will definitely look for them in other locations. Thanks Tom for a wonderful tour!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Janet. It is always nice to hear such praises about the quality of my tours. I assure you that you won't go wrong if you continue using ToursByLocals in the future as most of my colleagues are skilled professionals whose performance is evaluated regularly. Best regards, Tom
I recently did a tour with Tom in Dubrovinik. He was amazing. He had us in stitches with his stories and in awe with his knowledge of all thing GOT. It really made our trip. Thank you so much Tom. I would highly recommend him to all. Sue
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sue, Thanks for a great review! Give my regards to the rest of the group. Valar Morghulis. Tom
Nancy WangUnited States
Based on the the other feedback I decided to go with this tour instead of the other Game of Thrones tours. I'm so glad I did. I paid for a private tour so it was just me, and while being with a group meant we could have shared costs, I ended up loving that it was just me. It was then just a conversation between me and the guide, and he happily took pictures of me posing at each scene he pointed out. Being by myself meant he was able to take me around on his scooter. The best scenes are outside the wall!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nancy, Since the price for this tour might have been a bit high for a single traveler, I aimed to deliver a personalized custom-made tour (with few extra stops&services) in order to achieve the value for money. Judging from your kind comment, I believe that my mission was a success:-) I am glad that you enjoyed the scooter ride too. I hope that your Croatian holiday will be as memorable as our GOT tour of Dubrovnik
Ann PersonUnited States
Tom was very knowledgeable and informative. We enjoyed this tour very much.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ann, I am glad that you found my services satisfactory. I hope that you'll enjoy the rest of your cruise as much as our tour around Dubrovnik Tom
Alexandra BeasleyUnited States
Just back from shore excursion tour in Dubrovnik with Tomislav. He was on time and flexible about sights to see and how much of the wall to walk. Knowledgeable about facts and history - spent some museum time and as he's a sommelier we did some wine tasting on a beautiful outdoor restaurant patio - restaurant owned by a friend of his. A church wedding and music was just across from us making for many wonderful memories! Thank you, Tomislav!! Alexandra
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Alexandra, The wine tasting and the wedding party provided a perfect ending of a perfect tour. I hope that the rest of your cruising holiday was as enjoyable as our tour that day. I raise my glass until we meet again. Cheers! Tom
Louis ThompsonUnited States
Randall W.United States
Tomislav made our trip to Dubrovnik and Cavtat a wonderful experience. Our group consisted of 7 adults and he was able to maintain a dialogue with all of us as we toured. Tomislav was prepared for all the areas we toured and covered everything we asked him to. I have no reservations in recommending him to other tourists.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Randy, Give my regards to the rest of the family. Tom
Kathleen Gaile BaliliUnited Kingdom
We had a rainy GoT tour but our guide made it a point to still visit as many filming locations despite the limitations due to the weather. We loved the tour. We could not have done the tour ourselves as most of the locations look so different from the TV version.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kathleen, Thank you for this kind review. I hope that the rainy weather that we experienced over the weekend didn't affect your holiday that much. Keep on watching the show for more interesting Game of Thrones locations! Valar Morghulis. Tom
Elinor G.United States
Tom was wonderful. Fluent in English and a real expert in the very interesting history of Dubrovnik. We learned a lot from him that we would not have known if we had toured around on our own. He was flexible with our special needs and preferences. His driver was also terrific. Highly recommended.
Robert BouffardUnited States
Tomislav was great! Showed us all the great sites from Game of Thrones! He also made sure not to spoil the show as we were still a few episodes behind but also let us know what to look for in upcoming episodes. He also talked a lot about the history of the city which made the tour more then just Game of Thrones, which I really enjoyed. Def recommend this to fans of the show and who want to know more about the beautiful city of Dubrovnik!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robert, Thank you for this kind review. I hope that you'll enjoy Qarth, Meereen and Braavos as much as you did King's Landing. Valar Morghulis. Tom(men)
John KadorWinfield, PA, United States
Tomislav is clearly one of the best tour guides out there. Not only does he know his stuff, but he enjoys being a tour guide. Tom went out of his way to make our experience relaxing, enjoyable, educational, and entertaining. He knows when to speak and he knows when to let the experience speak for itself. We felt we were in excellent hands. We can offer Tomislav a total recommendation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you John, It means really a lot to me to hear that everything worked out fine for you and your group, especially because of different preferences of each group member. I must say that I also enjoyed your company and that touring with you was a rewarding experience. Thanks again for a great review.
Geraldine AlpertUnited States
The tour was excellent and Tomas was extremely knowledgeable, charming and considerate. Wonderful experience.
Theresa EmigACWORTH, GA, United States
Game of Thrones tour was fabulous.Tom went above & beyond to make sure we had a great time. I highly recommend Tom & this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Theresa, Give my regards to Lisa and Denise. I hope that your upcoming trip to Meereen will be as exciting as the tour in King's Landing. Valar Morghulis Tom
Paul BirnbaumUnited States
Tom is probably the best day-tour guide we ever spent time with. Enthusiastic, knowledgeable, engaging, easy-going, and fun. He went out of his way to be sure that we had the best possible time. He even took some extra time to show us an out-of-the-way site in the town. AND he helped us book a reasonably priced ride to the airport. Way to go Tom! Wish they were all like you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Paul, I'm really glad to hear praises for my services, especially since they're coming from such well-traveled group of people. I also had great fun touring with you so the pleasure was mutual. Give my regards to Karen and the rest of the group. Tom
Bonnie AdamsUnited States
Tomislav is wonderful! knowledgeable and thorough, he toured us through the city. And what fun! Best tour ever!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Bonnie, Thank you! I am glad that the tour was equally interesting for book readers as well as for the TV show fans. Enjoy the rest of your cruising holiday and keep on watching the Game of Thrones for other familiar Dubrovnik locations. Valar Morghulis Tom
Thomas GusdorffUnited States
Tomislav was truly amazing. He met us the night before to go over our plans and our day tour emcompassed so many of our interests. The three of us are history buffs and Tomislav greatly added to our knowledge. He is so passionte about what he does! We cannot wait to be back in Croatia. Our lunch wss truly amazing as well as the wine tastings and oyster tastings. He rates 10 stars! Tom, John and Ed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks guys! When such praises come from such experienced and well traveled gentlemen then I can rest assure that the job was well done. As I said, it is only a pity that your stay in Croatia wasn't longer as there are plenty of other interesting points that are just waiting to be discovered. Well, this probably means that we might see each other again in near future :-) Tom
Joseph BickweatUnited States
Tom is a great guide, he has a passion for the history of his city and country and is excellent at expressing it. I traveled with my mother that had some physical limitations and he was able to design a tour that limited the number of steps (not easy to do in a medieval city) and paced in a way that allowed her to fully enjoy her time without it being too exhausting while. After the official tour he found a nice café for my mother and walked with me for 30 extra mins and showed be where to walk the wall.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joe, Thank you for this wonderful review. Please extend my regards to your mother. All the best, Tom
Virginia MigliettaSouth Africa
Tomislav is very knowledgeable and also a pleasant young man We enjoyed a walking tour of Dubrovnik with him and rate him 5 out of 5 .We recommend him highly
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Virginia, I hope that you and Ugo will have a great time in Italy. Best regards, Tom
We enjoyed the Game of throne and Dubrovnik tour very much . He had a book with images and took us to the places where key scenes were shot. We also learnt about the history of Dubrovnik and how various empires ruled Dubrovnik. We took an extra tour to Lokum islands with Tom as the ferry was running - but Lokum does not have many GOT spots . its worth doing this part only if the weather is warm and you will stay longer at the beautiful Lokum island post tour ( the ferry costs 100 kn pp )
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sangeeta, Thank you for this kind review. I am sorry to hear that the island of Lokrum wasn't appealing enough for you, but that is the question of preference. Please extend my warmest regards to your family. Tom
Kensi NobandaSouth Africa
I'm a massive GOT fan and was so impressed with Tom's knowledge of the show. He really mad the tour even more interesting for me with so much new information. I was also with a friend who's never watched any episode of the show - and she also enjoyed the tour because it's such an interesting way of touring the Old City of Dubrovnik. And then I also loved the previews into new locations for Season 5! Seriously - this is THE guy to do a GOT tour with in Dubrovnik! Thanks for an awesome time!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kensi, Thank you so much for this wonderful review. Competition is getting tougher every day as the other tour guides included the GOT tour in their offer, so I'm really glad to get such feedback from a true GOT fan such as yourself. Give my regards to Lindy and keep on watching the show for more magical Dubrovnik locations. Valar Morghulis. Tom
Christopher SimkinsUnited Kingdom
Tom's tour was fantastic. He's a walking encyclopaedia when it comes to the history of Dubrovnik, Croatia and The Balkans (and probably beyond!) and we learned so much in the hours we spent with him. He also seems to know quite a bit about football! As someone who has an obvious love for the City and was there with his family at the age of 11 when it was being shelled during the war of independence he also brings a particular and personal perspective. We can't recommend him highly enough.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lyn & Chris, Thank you so much for these kind words. I am happy to hear that my tour has upgraded your experience of Dubrovnik and I hope to see you again in near future. Best regards, Tom
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Susan, I hope that you and Mario enjoyed the rest of your Croatian holiday and that you found my instructions on how to reach the other GoT locations on the way to Split helpful. All the best, Tom
Jan HeinekenUnited States
Rated Tom as 5 stars. He is definitely a star!! My husband and I were met at the dock, walked the City walls with him, and had an excellent fact filled tour with this delightful and knowledgeable guide. Tom is a part time professor and excellent communicator. You won't be disappointed!! His tour was the best we took in 23 days of traveling the Dalmatian Coast!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jen, Thank you for these kind words. I am extremely happy to hear that my Dubrovnik tour had been the highlight of your 23-day long cruise. Please give my regards to Ken. Tom
Marcie StockUnited States
Tom met us as he said he would. Took us on a great tour of the city of Dubrovnek. He has great knowledge of the history of his city. His English is perfect and he even arranged a kyacking tour for us. It was a magical day in the beautiful city of Dubrovnek.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Marcie, Give my regards to Cliff. All the best, Tom
Carson SchroederUnited States
Tom was great, a very fun and informative combination of real Dubrovnik history and not-so-real Game of Thrones history. Some really cool insight into various filming locations, both older and more recent, as well as a few local anecdotes about the filming process and cast. We were able to pack a lot of locations into the tour timing without ever being rushed. Tom was friendly, communicative, and helpful at every step. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Carson, I am glad to hear that you and Claudia enjoyed the tour. Keep on watching the show for more exciting Dubrovnik locations. Best regards, Tom
Louise ChrispinUnited Kingdom
The tour was very interesting and Tom is an excellent guide - very friendly and knowledgable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Louise, Give my regards to your daughter and your husband. Best regards, Tom
Maria J WrightUnited States
Tom gave us a great tour of Dubrovnik and the G of Thrones sites. We saw them filming and even got a picture with some Lannister soldiers. Tom was great about maneuvering a very crowded Dubrovnik so we could find some quiet places and enjoy this lovely place. After the tour he sent us clips from the show that showed where we had been. It was a great tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Maria, Give my regards to Fred. Best regards, Tom
Matthew JonesUnited States
Tom is an awesome tour guide! This tour was the highlight of our recent cruise. We highly recommend Tom whether you are a GoT fan or not. -Matt & Paige
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Paige&Matt, Thank you for this wonderful review. I hope that the rest of your cruising holiday was as enjoyable as the tour in Dubrovnik. Keep on watching the GoT for more exciting Dubrovnik locations! Tom
Jake JanzenUnited States
We really enjoyed our tour. He was helpful and informative and very excited about Game of Thrones which made the tour really enjoyable. We didn't feel rushed and he willingly took pictures for us based off of scenes from the show. We would highly recommend this tour to others interested in Game of Thrones.
Ren ProvoUnited States
It was a pleasure to learn about so many scenes from the Game of Thrones series while roaming the Old City. Tom has such a positive attitude towards history-focused travel. I highly recommend him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ren. I hope that you enjoyed your trip to Lokrum island. Tom
Jane OlingerUnited States
Thomas treated us like visiting family members, navigated us through crowds which enabled time to see even more, very knowledgeable, catered to our group so that we all got to see/experience what was important to us, Good grasp on history of his city and great communicator. He has a great sense of humor and fun to be around. Outstanding! Thomas was very full of info about Croatia, interesting facts. Love the walking tour of the walled city. Would definitely recommend him to friends and family 5+
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jane, Thank you for these kind comments. I hope that the rest of your cruising holiday was equally enjoyable as the tour in Dubrovnik. Give my regards to the rest of the group. Tom
Absolutely loved Dubrovnik, what a spectacular city!! Loved our walk along the city wall, Tom was very informative and friendly! Tom took us to a wonderful little wine bar for a wine tasting & some snacks. He also took us to a jeweller who demonstrated how to make hand made silver jewellery; explaining the history of the buttons, what they represented and that they were offered to the bride to be when proposing marriage!! Excellent day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ann, Thank you for this great review. I am glad to hear that my tour (along with tasting the local wines and the demonstration of traditional local crafts) has made your visit to Dubrovnik a memorable experience. I hope to see you again soon. Best regards, Tom
Excellent tour! Tomislav told us not only about the series but also the history of Duvronik. It was also obius that he had followed the series and had a also great deal of information about the filshootings. Would deffinetly recommend.
Julie SpragueUnited States
We enjoyed a great tour thanks to Tom our guide. We really enjoyed that Tom showed us what they looked like in the show vs seeing the actual filming locations for Game of Thrones. In addition to taking us through the fort and on the wall, Tom provided lots of history on Dubrovnik and Croatia too.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thaks Julie. I am glad that you found Dubrovnik's own history equally interesting as the info on the filming locations. Keep on watching GoT for more exciting Dubrovnik locations! Valar Morghulis. Tom
Tracy MitznerUnited States
Tom was a wonderful guide for our visit to Dubrovnik! His knowledge of historical facts and details was truly impressive. He did a great job of gearing the tour around our interests. I highly recommend him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Tracy. It was a pleasure touring with you. Give my regards to your husband. Tom
Jennifer GoodmanUnited States
Tom was excellent! Interesting, knowledgeable, entertaining, and easy to interact with. He made us fans of Dubrovnik, it's beauty and history. We hope to go back. - C & J Goodman
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jennifer, Give my regards to Charles. Tom
Marcella De RoseCanada
Tom was a great tour guide with a lot of information both on the show and the city itself. It was a rainy day, but he was still up for showing us around. He even spent a little more time with us as we wanted to stop for a coffee and his next group had cancelled. I would definitely recommend it!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Marcella, I hope that the wedding party on the next day had been as memorable as our tour. Give my regards to the rest of the group. Tom
Tom's knowledge of the Game of Thrones within the City Walls, the Fortress and Lockrum Island was outstanding so too was his general knowledge of the history of Dubrovnik and it's history and culture. It was like having 2 private tour guides rolled into one. Tom even suggested that the extended Game of Thrones tour be split into 2 day to allow us to explore Lokrum Island further on our own. I would highly recommend Tom to prospective Game of Throne enthusiasts. His overall knowledge Is outstanding.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Luciano, I hope that you will enjoy your forthcoming holidays in Barcelona as much as the ones in Croatia. I also hope that the weather will serve you better there. Valar Morghulis, Tom
Emina CholichUnited States
Fantastic tour! Tomislav is very knowledgable about GoT and Dubrovnik history which he skillfully combines into a fun and educational experience. He also takes very good photos.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Emina, Thank you very much. I hope that you enjoyed your stay in Dubrovnik and Slano. Give my regards to Nedim and your friends. Tom
Michael FriedlanderUnited States
Excellent tour with a very knowledgeable and pleasant guide. Highly recommended
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Michael, I hope that your tour in Montenegro (as well as the rest of the cruising holiday) had been equally enjoyable. Give my regards to the rest of the group. Tom
Norman GrimesUnited States
Tom was a wonderful tour guide. He immediately made us feel welcome. It started to pour down rain toward the end of our tour. Tom went beyond the call of duty to see us safely back to our ship. He even rode on the bus back with us to assure we got back safely and on time. He took us to a great local restaurant for a delicious taste of the local cuisine. We also were given the opportunity to taste some of the local wines and beer. We would highly recommend this tour with Tom. The wall was amazing!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Norman, Thank you for this nice review. Trust me, the downpour that we experienced on that day was not something you can see here often so I had to make sure that you get back on the ship in the most orderly fashion. Anyway, I am pleased to hear that the lousy weather hasn't affected your experience of my hometown. Give my regards to the rest of the group. Tom
Gillian WallaceUnited Kingdom
Wonerful, informative tour by very friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. Great introduction to Dubrovnik. Couldn't have been better!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Gillian, I have also very much enjoyed touring with you and your friends and I'm glad that Hayley's surprise tour was a success. Give my warmest regards to her and Duncan for their wedding. Tim
Paul SturmUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Paul!
It was a very nice trip. He was very nice, kind and also honest.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Arnaldo, I hope that the rest of your trip through the Balkans was as enjoyable as our tour. Give my regards to Arianna. Tom
Bryan GreenUnited States
Tomislav was amazing on our tour. He was extremely knowledgeable, courteous and kind. He helped us find our hotel room with our rent a car. I would recommend him to anyone!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Brian, Believe me, pleasure was all mine. It was a wonderful day in a wine country and we had a great time together. Give my regards to the rest of the group. Tom
We had the pleasure of having Tom as our GOT guide for a whole day. He showed us places we had never found on our own. We recommend Tom if you want to experience the best of GOT and Dubrovnik history. Thank you for a wonderfull day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Solveig, The pleasure was all mine. Say hello to Marie for me. Best regards, Tom
Sarah MackenzieUnited Kingdom
Fantastic tour - my daughter, Hannah, is a massive GoT fan and rated the tour as best part of our holiday in Croatia. The other two of us do not watch the programme but Tom also told us about history in Dubrovnic and made my son want to come home and watch the programme!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sarah, Thanks. Give my regards to Hannah and Sam. Tom
Dorothy M.United States
Tom met us on time as planned and everything went smoothy. He is extremely knowledgeable about social and political history. We had a great tour and he is a very enjoyable person with whom to spend the time. The four of us highly enjoyed his tour and we learned so much!! Dorothy
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dorothy, Thank you for this wonderful review. Give my regards to the rest of the group. Tom
Kira RamdasUnited States
Extremely historical and educational- all the things we didn't even know we wanted to know! For GOT he's read them all and watched every episode with the depth of viewing more than once! I was very impressed and even with two non fans everyone enjoyed the tour and lunch suggestions.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Kira, I am glad that you realize that this kind of service makes a difference, as there are other guides that are offering similar tours, but have very limited knowledge of ASOIAF (or the GoT show for that matter). Anyway, the general info on Dubrovnik and Croatia is usually part of the package which I always aim to tie with the travelers' personal interests. I hope that the rest of the holidays in Croatia will be as enjoyable as our tour. Best regards, Tom
Tomislav is one the best tour guides I've ever had the pleasure to meet. He is very informative and never boring. He lead us to discover corners of the city we would never have found on our own. He has a thorough knowledge of both the city and the show and the almost three hours we spent with him flew by way too fast.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Monica, Thank you for this great review. It is nice to hear that you enjoyed the factual bits that I combined with GoT content. I also hope that you found the tips on what to do in next few days useful. Best regards, Tom
Sheila SchwartzUnited States
Tom was wonderful, very knowledgable and professional!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Sheila. I hope that Matthew and you will have a great time on your cruise and a trip to Paris and Belfast. Kindest regards, Tom
Joseph LahiffUnited States
I can't say enough about how great Tom was. My gf and I had a tour with him on August 6th. He first asked if we were caught up on GOT, and if we had read the books. Very considerate of him. The tour was fun, thorough, and covered the history of Dubrovnik, along with GOT. Tom was very friendly and considerate, making sure we took adequate rests and got plenty of water for all of the walking we did. He also brought pictures on his phone of the show scenes to help orient us to what we were looking at.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joe, Thanks so much for this great review. Keep on watching the show for more great Dubrovnik locations. Tom
Roberta WeilUnited States
What a wonderful day we had with Tomislav! He is extremely knowledgeable and informative. He also sat down with us before we began and discussed our options and addressed our mobility issues. He adjusted the tour to meet our needs and interests. When we expressed an interest in getting out of the city into the countryside, he called a driver, Petar and together they took us to the countryside..a bonus. We rate Tomislav as one of the top guides we have had and recommend him highly
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Roberta&Paul, Thanks so much for this kind comment. I am extremely satisfied that everything worked out according to your expectations considering the fact that the day was extremely hot and that you had some mobility issues. Petar extends his regards, Tom
The tour was really exciting. Tomislav is very competent and interested in GoT. He was friendly with us and he spoke italian all the time very well. He showed us a lot of locations (also of season 4) and we enjoyed taking many photos like the characters of the show. We recommend this tour so much (it's also the cheaper) and we want to thank again the great Tomislav. A group of italian Dubrovnik (king's landing) lovers.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie Liliana! Tom
Beverly KeitzUnited States
By the end of our tour with Tom we had a thorough knowledge of the history of Dubrovnik and an appreciation of the influence of the various conquering cultures on the City. Coming from the U.S. we are awed by the site of an ancient city that is, for the most part, as it has been for thousands of years. Tom identified important sites and seamlessly interwove history with practical life through the centuries leaving us with a vision of what life must have been like for those who lived there.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Beverly, Thank you for your kind comment. I am glad to hear that my tour helped you truly experience the medieval Dubrovnik and I hope that I will be seeing you again in Dubrovnik in near future. Best regards, Tom
Julia WallaceNew Zealand
The tour with Tom was fantastic. It was just the three if us and felt relaxed and friendly. Tom took us to the fort where a lot of the filming took place, had picture from the series to explain exactly where each scene took place. He was also very informative about the history of Dubrovnik then we all went over to the Island of Lokrum. Can't praise tours by locals enough, forget the large impersonal tours with scripts and large price tags. Wonderful day out, highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Julia. I hope that the rest of your holiday in Croatia was as enjoyable and relaxing as our tour around Lokrum and Dubrovnik. Best regards, Tom
Matthew H.United States
Tomislav was outstanding. He met us on time. He started the tour early and ended late. I gave him a good tip for his extra time, and I was happy to give it. He had excellent knowledge and an excellent attitude. We appreciated the diversity of his knowledge.We even called him after the tours to ask for restaurant recommendations, and he was very forthcoming.He satisfied all of my family members,and they're not always easy to please.I would definitely recommend Tomislav.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Matt, Thank you for this kind review (as well as for a generous tip). I have had a great time touring with your family and I am extremely pleased to hear that you found the tour as well as the restaurant recommendations satisfactory. Give my regards to the rest of the family. Tom
Lisa TaggartUnited Kingdom
A truly unforgettable experience, Tom made the tour exciting and his knowledge is second to none. He was able to show us many of the settings for Game of Thrones and pictures of the scenes when we were at them. I would not hesitate to recommend Tom to other fans of the TV program, as he is able to make the tour personal and extremely special- something which you would not get in a larger tour group. We both feel it was a day that will remain with us forever, thank you very much Tom!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lisa&Chris, I would like to thank you for this wonderful review. The other tour guides and touring companies started offering GoT-themed tours of Dubrovnik lately, but your review says it all - booking my personalized GoT tour makes a difference. I hope that you will have a great time in Kolocep and other Elaphiti islands. Kindest regards, Tom
Tom is an energetic guide. Very knowledgable about the show and fhe history of the city. It was an awesome experience for us as Tom guided us through the city and the locations where the show was filmed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Jerry, Give my regards to the girls. Valar Morghulis. Tom
Tom was very knowledgable and answered all out questions. He made the tour enjoyable and took us to very beautiful places. I strongly recommend this tour for all game of thrones fans, it was truly a great day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Denana, Thank you very much. It was extremely nice to hear that in the sea of alternative Dubrovnik Game of Thrones tours that started springing up lately you opted for the original (and the best rated one :-). Give my regards to Mirela, Max, Malik and, of course, Aidan!
Great tour. Good knowledge of game of thrones and other history of Dubrovnik. Really good value for the money.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Anders, Kind regards, Tom
Linda NorredUnited States
Tom is an excellent guide. He is very knowledgeable about Croatian history and Game of Thrones. Despite being his third tour of the day, he was excited to show us around Dubrovnik like it was his first time. He is very pleasant and speaks perfect English. I would recommend Tom for this exciting tour of the Game of Thrones locations and for his knowledge of the history of Croatia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Linda, Believe me, the pleasure was all mine. Clayton and you were a nice couple to spend the time with and I'm glad that you liked my tour. All the best, Tom
Alicia L.United States
We had an absolutely wonderful time! We were excited to see so many Game of Thrones locations. It was amazing to look at the actual scene on Tom's phone. My husband loved talking to him about so many different Game of Thrones topics. We would definitely recommend this tour to all Game of Thrones fans!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Alicia, I am delighted to hear praises about my Dubrovnik Game of Thrones tour, especially since they're coming from such great GoT fans such as Ivan and you. Keep on watching the show for more breathtaking Dubrovnik locations! Valar Morghulis. Tom
Carla SantucciUnited States
Tomislav was so great! We had very limited time in Dubrovnik because of our cruise schedule. Tom was so fantastic. He got us to all the awesome Game of Thrones sites as quick as he could, despite our tight schedule. He was polite, insightful, and spoke in English, which was so helpful. We wish we could have spent more time with him, as he was very knowledgeable about Dubrovnik and Game of Thrones. Thank you, Tom!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Carla, Thank you very much. I am glad that to have helped with the time allocation so you could fully enjoy Dubrovnik in a very short time that you had on your disposal. There are other interesting sides of Dubrovnik that you missed, but we'll make up for this once you visit my hometown next time :-) Best regards, Tom
Michele ZambieUnited States
Tomislav is a rating of 5, outstanding. There were 4 in our group and everyone said he was the best of our entire cruise. We had 5 ports and "Tom" made our stop in Dubravnik the best of all. His sense of humor and knowledge of the city was top notch. I would recommend him for anyone wanting an exceptional guide. Thank you Tom! Best regards, Michele Zambie
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Michele, Give my regards to the rest of the group. Tom
Aleksandra RybakToronto, Canada
First tour we ever went on and this has been one of the highlights of the entire trip! Highly recommend. Tom is an awesome guide who knows everything about GOT, Dubrovnik and Croatia. This was a full day of various places and totally worth it for GOT fans. Even if you are not a fan of the show I highly recommend booking a private city tour. Thanks Tom!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Aleksandra, I am more than delighted with such a great review considering the fact that your honeymoon lasted around 6 weeks. All the best, Tom
Sandy SchovanecUnited States
Our guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Sandy, Give my regards to the rest of the family. Tom
Fantastic tour. Lots of fun and very informative. The guide was great.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, I am glad to hear that your group enjoyed the tour this much. Valar Morghulis. Tom
Ira ShermanUnited States
Tom was an excellent tour guide. He not only knew the sites that everyone wants to see, he knew interesting facts that made spending the day with him an unusually memorable experience. Additionally, Tom was thoroughly engaging and pleasant. I highly recommend Tom as a tour guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ira, Thank you for this kind review. Best regards, Tom
Paul MorrisUnited Kingdom
Tomas was great! He made the tour interesting to all three of us - our daughter who is a big Game of Thrones fan, and us as adults who found the history and politics of Croatia as he related them surprisingly interesting. And all of this despite having severely sprained his ankle just a few days before! He struggled up and down the steep steps and alleyways with no complaint - good one Tomas!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Paul, Thank you for this kind review. I tried to do my best in spite of the injury and am glad to hear that I succeeded. Give my regards to your wife and daughter. Tom
Robert Hubbardlakeland, MINNESOTA, United States
Excellent. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Robert.
Dale MorganUnited States
Tom was terrific! Our entire family not only received a thorough tour concerning Game of Thrones, but we also were given an extensive explanation of Dubrovnik history as well. Tom was very generous with his time and set a pace that was comfortable for all. We never felt rushed. In fact, we were able to alter our plans to take in extra opportunities that came our way during the entire day. I would highly recommend this tour and Tom as it's guide. It was an awesome experience!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Dale, I had wonderful time touring with you as well. Give my regards to the rest of the family. Tom
Calvin LamUnited States
Tom is very knowledgeable on history and facts. Pleasant personality. We definitely recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Enrique, I hope that you and your family enjoyed their holidays in Dubrovnik, Bosnia and Montenegro. Give my regards to the rest of the group. Tom
Neil ColecloughUnited Kingdom
What a brilliant tour! Tom is incredibly knowledgable about Game of Thrones as well as Dubrovnik's history in general. He is enthusiastic, speaks great English, and made sure we saw all the important sites. He recommended a brilliant restaurant for lunch too ensuring our day in Dubrovnik was as enjoyable as possible. Thanks Tom, other tour guides could learn a lot from you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Neil, Thanks! I also had a great time touring with you and your family. Please make sure to send me the picture of us doing 'sword fight' scene at the Fortress of St Lawrence. Say hello to your family for me! Tom
Julian HoyleUnited Kingdom
Tom is a very friendly, enthusiastic and approachable guide. His knowledgable of the history of Dubrovnik and Croatia is unprecedented. He has clearly spent significant time and effort to combine his local knowledge with his excellent level of insight into the Game of Thrones series (both the HBO series and literature) into a fascinating tour. Tom is a true scholar and a gentleman and it was a privilege to spend a day with him in Dubrovnik. I could not recommend this tour more highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Aoisha&Jules, Thank you very much for this kind review. Enjoy the rest of your honeymoon in Croatia and give my regards to Ben if you have a chance. Best regards, Tom
Scott MarkstromUnited States
Tomislav was able to give a long and detailed tour, even with a bum ankle. He truly gave us a great tour, even though he thought his ankle was slowing us down. No need to rush through Dubrovnik, a slower pace allowed us to enjoy this great city even more. From sharing history to Game of Thrones tidbits, we have been convinced to come back to Dubrovnik again. Book Tomislav with confidence. If you are getting off a cruise ship, trust me, the video wall to meet is easy to find. Tomislav, Thank-you!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Scott, Thank you very much for this kind review. I am glad that everything worked out fine considering the fact that my injury slowed the pace of the tour. You were fun crowd to tour with and I would be happy to welcome you in my city again in the future. Tom
We loved it Tomislav was excellent and very knowledgeable he knew the history of the city as well as the game of thrones show highly recommend it!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Anna, Give my regards to Vlad. Valar Morhulis. Tom
Outstanding tour. Detailed historical knowledge. All put in context. Friendly and enthusiastic !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Samir, I must say that I had a great time touring with you and Orla and I hope that the rest of your Croatian holiday will be as peaceful and enjoyable as our afternoon in Dubrovnik. Please say hello to Orla for me. Kindest regards, Tom
Peter FilmerUnited Kingdom
Tom was an excellent guide with very good knowledge of Dubrovnik and its history and also excellent English. He was very easy to understand and gave us a very clear and enlightened guide to this lovely city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sarah and Peter, Thank you for your kind comment. I sincerely hope that the rest of your Croatian holiday was equally enjoyable. Give my regards to the rest of the family. Best regards, Tom
Margaret GradwellUnited Kingdom
Booked this tour for 3 people (2 fans of GoT) & 1 person who had never seen the show! We emailed each other before we arrived in Croatia agreeing on meeting point.Tom was charming, knowledgeable & entertaining & gave us an enlightened tour which not only included GoT locations but he engaged us with local history,customs & pointed out sights and places we would never have found by ourselves!For the GoT fans he brought the locations to life with photograps and stories of filming.He answered all questions
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Margaret, I am very happy to hear that the tour was equally enjoyable for GoT fans and that other person that hasn't seen the show ;-) All the best! Tom
Ruth MacKinnonUnited States
Tomas was a great guide. He showed us pictures of the movie at various locations and took pictures of us at some of these. It was a very enjoyable half day. Thank you Tomas.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ruth, Thank you. Give my regards to Ron. I hope to see you again in near future. Tom
Donna SamsUnited States
5 star rating. Excellent guide and very knowledgable
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Donna, It was a pleasure touring with you. Give my regards to the rest of the group. Tom
I am an absolutely massive Game of Thrones fan and Tom's tour exceeded my high expectations! Tom is knowledgeable, friendly, and simply a good guy. His tour is a great mix of all the best locations where scenes were filmed and he shapes the level of walking and detail to his group. Cannot recommend highly enough - thanks again Tom!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Joel, Don't mention it. It am happy to hear that Yuki and you enjoyed the tour as well as the rest of your honeymoon in Croatia. All the best!! Tom
Theresa AnemaNew Zealand
All credit to Tom, he was informative, great communication before actually meeting him and then just the loveliest guy. We would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to do the same tour. AAA+++
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Theresa, Your comment is music to my ears:-) Give my regards to Tom, Sherry and the rest of my favorite Kiwis:-)
William GangiUnited States
Tomislav deserves 5 stars on all counts. He is knowledgeable, not only about Dubrovnik but general knowledge, culture and politics, European and in the United States. He is personal with a great sense of humor. And he is patient and very aware of his clients' needs. My wife and I highly recommend his services when one visits Dubrovnik.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Pat&Bill, Thank you for this kind comment. It was a real treat having you as my clients for these two days. Give my regards to Frank, Marie and the rest of your friends that toured with me a year ago. Best regards, Tom
Very knowledgeable of both Game of Thrones and Dubrovnik history. Tom was very flexible and arranged a tour that fit our interests nicely. We were shown about a dozen places where GoT was filmed, and were also given info about more GoT-related places to see and other places of interests as well. Higly recommended if you're going to Dubrovnik and have seen Game of Thrones!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Johan, Thank you. I am glad that you found this tour satisfactory, considering the fact that the weather wasn't really cooperative (however it created more gloomy atmosphere which was also reminiscent for the show). Best regards, Tom
Leslie MichaelsCarmichael, CA, United States
Well-organized, enthusiastic and animated to show us his country. Knowledgable about history, culture, cuisine (including local Peka meal) and especially local wines! Honest responses to my serious questions; laughed at my jokes & made a few himself. Highly recommended to create a personalized tour of Dubrovnik area (jaw-dropping, beautiful scenery; wine-tasting; "Game of Thrones"; historical sites; etc.); provided driver an added bonus!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Les, It has been a pleasure organizing this 3-day tour for Susan and you and I'm glad to hear that everything worked out fine. Best regards from Tom, Matt and Jake P.S. It might interest you that we're all studying hard in getting to know local and regional wine sorts :-)
Tom, our guide was fabulous, with his knowledge of the area, history and relevant information for the locations we visited. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip. All in all, it was totally worth the time and price.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Marli, Thank you. I also had a great time touring with you and your husband. Give my regards to him and keep an eye on Dubrovnik locations used in the upcoming Season 4 of our favorite show.
Chie Li EeUnited States
When I first booked this tour, the driver guide was someone recommended in Rick Steve's book. After having Tom as our guide, I can confidently say he surpassed all our expectations and went over and beyond to make it a great experience. Being a history major, Tom is very knowledgeable about the history and culture of this region and of the world. And as a bonus, he also showed us the spots where different scenes from Game of Thrones was shot. My family had a great time thanks to Tom.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Chie Li, I am happy to hear that you had been happy with the entire arrangement, since you originally booked a different tour with different guide (and the awful weather has additionally complicated my task). I also had a great time touring with you. Give my regards to the rest of your family. Tom
Beverly JohnsonUnited States
Tomislov was fun and knowledgeable. "Tom" was raised in Dubrovnik and, as a former history teacher, he explained the complicated history of the region and took us on a tour of the old town. My husband uses a wheelchair but wouldn't let him help. When he sensed that my husband was tired he suggested that we stop for some wine tasting. He seems to know everyone in town and we receive the royal treatment from the proprietor. We had so much fun. Bev Johnson, So. Lake Tahoe, CA
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Bev! Give my regards to Chuck! Happy holidays!
William FrazierUnited States
Tom was very friendly, knowledgeable, and organized while being flexible to ensure that the tour met our needs. We saw and learned so much about both the past and more recent history of Dubrovnik in the two hours. For those wanting informative detail along with a great visual tour, Tom is your guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear William, Thank you very much for this kind comment. Give my regards to your lovely wife. Tom
Frank BracciaUnited States
Tom..Excellent guide...Very knowledgeable individual who provided our group with an in depth perspective of each historical and cultural point of interest visited....Tour intinerary selected gives the visitor good overview of the country and the customs/traditions of the local people...Would highly recommend Tom as a guide without any reservations.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Frank, Thank you so much for this positive review. Please extend my regards to the rest of the group. Cordiali saluti! Tom
We decided on this tour shortly before our date of arrival but it didn't make the tour less interesting or less well-prepared. Tom sent to us detailed information where to meet and how to get there from the pier (line of the bus, price for the tickets!). Tour (extended version with Lokrum island) lasted 5h and was full of Dubrovnik & Croatia historic news with a lot of Game of Thrones inclusions. Amazing! I would recommend to anybody visiting Dubrovnik, as you will NOT regret:)!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marta and Mariusz, Thank you very much for these kind comments. I wish you all the best! Tom
Carlos RiondaUnited States
Tom was an outstanding guide for our group of 14. We arrive on Celebrity Equinox. Tom gave us tour of Cavtat, Scenic Kovanie valley, Ljuta river water mill and Dubrovnik. He was punctual, knowledgeable and extremely pleasant to everyone. He made for all of usa day to remember. We highly recommend him. He is a star guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Carlos, Thank you very much. I am glad that you enjoyed the tour and that the time we spent touring enabled you to learn something about my hometown and the surrounding region. Please send my warmest regards to the other members of your group. Our driver Ado (the 'kamikaze') extends his greetings as well :-) Tom
Kimberly KalupaUnited States
We loved our time with Tom. We arranged this at the last minute to maximize our time in the wonderful city of Dubrovnik. Tomislav exceeded our expectations in every way. He was very laid back, flexible, ridiculously patient with our 6 year old's many questions, and super knowledgeable about the area. We loved our time in the Old City and on Lokrum. He adapted our plan as the day unfolded based on our needs and circumstances like weather, crowds, etc. Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kimberly, Thank you. I would just like to add that I personally enjoyed the tour as well, including Maya's numerous questions (I was actually amazed how intelligent and well thought these questions were, given the fact that she's only 6). I had a great time touring with your lovely family. Give my regards to the girls and your husband.
Kathy BudgeUnited States
Tom is a fantastic tour guide! We did the Game of Thrones Tour with him and it was amazing! His knowledge of both the show and the filming areas are great. He is accomodating and we never felt rushed! He provided a car and a driver for us to go to Ston in addition to the GoT tour, and the car was very comfortable and clean and the driver was professional and friendly. We really loved Drubovnik and our time with Tom! I would highly recommend him if you are visiting Drubovnik!! Thanks, Tom!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kathy, Thanks. I am glad that everything worked out fine for you, given the fact that the weather was awful. My only regret was that we needed to skip the visit to the island of Lokrum (as you probably recall, the boat was cancelled due to weather conditions), however I am pleased to hear that the rest of locations (Dubrovnik, Trsteno and Ston) exceeded your expectations. I wish you all the best and hope to see you some time in the future. Tom
Robert AdelmanUnited States
Tomislav gave us not only a wonderful G.O.T. tour but also shared his vast knowledge of Dubrovnik & Croatian history. We thoroughly enjoyed his friendly & warm personality. Highly recommend taking his tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Robert, Thank you very much for your kind comment. I hope that the rest of your cruising holiday was equally enjoyable. Best regards, Tom
We were very happy with our tour of Dubrovnik with Tom. He was very knowledgeable and explained the history, politics, economics - everything! very well. He answered all our questions. He was very accommodating and made helpful suggestions for our friend who was feeling unwell. It was a delightful experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lloyd, I am extremely satisfied that everything worked out fine for you, given the fact that I actually needed to perform the tour as a substitute for a tour that you booked with the other TBL guide. I wish all the best to you and your friends. Tom
Marla ReidUnited States
Tom was our guide yesterday. We found him very personable, knowledgeable, helpful and funny at times. These are all things we look for in a guide. We give him high marks. Sent from my iPad
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Marla, I hope that the rest of your trip through Croatia will be as enjoyable as the tour around Dubrovnik. Please say hello to the rest of the group for me. Best regards, Tom
Tammy TenagliaUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Tammy, Say hello to your husband for me. Tom
Mike EwingUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: THANKS!
Jeffrey P.Chicago, IL, United States
Tomislav was prompt, informative and entertaining. The tour was interesting from a perspective of both the history of Dubrovnik as we followed the shoot sites of the Game of Thrones show. It included a full tour of the Old Town and fortress, Lokrum Island, and the city wall tour. Our tour went long but we never felt rushed. I would recommend Tomislav with no reservations.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jeffrey, I am pleased to hear that you found this custom-made tour satisfactory. I hope that Dijon also enjoyed the tour and that he has few interesting snaps to show to his friends now :-)
I especially liked Tomislav's sprinkling of recent Dubrovnik history throughout his Game of Thrones tour. It made for a much livelier walk than if it had been only about Game of Thrones. I was also thankful that Tomislav shared his own pictures with us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Luis, I am glad that you enjoyed my "historic" contribution to GoT tour. Apart from being an ideal location for GoT, the Old Town of Dubrovnik hides many interesting stories and anecdotes from both close and distant past that could easily be compared with the famous HBO TV series. I hope that the rest of your holiday in Italy was equally enjoyable. Tom
Kenneth A.Fairview, 16415, United States
Tom is extremely knowledgable about Croatia and the Game of Thrones. Visited many filming sites from GOT. Had a chance even to swim off the Buza. Highly recommend Tomislaw as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ken, Thank you for your feedback. It was my pleasure showing you around and I hope that you took some great snaps as well. Say hello to your family for me. Tom
Jose Antonio SilvaPortugal
Excelent. Simply the best tour! Tomislav was a great guide, flexible, available to anwser about many other facts from the city's amazing history! This is an excelente tour and I recommend it to any Game of Thtrones fan!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jose Antonio, Thank you very much. Give my regards to your wife and daughter. Best regards, Tom
Ted EichelbergerUnited States
This tour was fantastic. We had a group of six for Tom's Game of Thrones tour of Dubrovnik. Tom is very knowledgeable and personable. If you are a GoT fan and you are in Dubrovnik, do not miss this tour. But even if you just want the normal tour of Dubrovnik, Tom is your man. We learned plenty about Dubrovnik and Croatia that had nothing to do with GoT--the GoT element just adds another element of fun. Just a great tour all around. Everyone in our group had a blast.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ted, Thank you for your kind comment. I hope that the rest of your cruising holiday would be as nice as in Dubrovnik. Also, make sure to visit Diocletian's cellars once you get to Split as you will be in for a treat (GoT Season 4 future location)! Give my regards to the rest of your group members, Tom
Had a wonderful time on this tour. Our guide Tomislav was very friendly, knowledgeable, and displayed an incredible amount of passion for the subject matter of the tour, which was the Game of Thrones content. The day was well paced and included all the main sites that we hoped to see, accompanied by Tomi's helpful and humorous commentary. Definitely worth the money spent and would highly recommend this tour and Tomi to our family and friends.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Kristina, Thank you very much for your kind comments. I must say that touring with you and Rafael felt like touring with old friends and I enjoyed every minute of it. Feel free to contact me if you happen to be passing through Dubrovnik or the area again (Bol on Brac island is not that far away) as there are many interesting sites which you missed this time. Best regards, Tom
Kai ChangHong Kong
Tom was fantastic - very knowledgeable, engaging and professional. Highly recommended! Kai.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Kai, Give my regards to rest of the group. Tom
Julie NusbaumUnited States
Tom was a fantastic guide- incredibly knowledgeable and engaging! We had two game of thrones fans and his descriptions, photos, and trivia did not disappoint! For the non- GOT fan, Tom still brought the show and the history of Dubrovnik and Croatia to life. We highly recommend his tour and thoroughly enjoyed our time with him. Thanks Tom!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Julie, Thank you. I have personally enjoyed touring with you in Dubrovnik and I hope that you will have fun scouting the future GoT locations in Split. Best regards, Tom
Howard FriedbergUnited States
Tomislav was an outstanding guide, an expert on many aspects of Dubrovnik and a GoT enthusiast. He gave us just what we wanted and more. Very personable and pleasant, he made our visit to Dubrovnik a wonderful experience that our family will never forget. I would recommend him without hesitation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Howard, I hope that the rest of your holiday around Croatia would be as enjoyable as the tour we had today. Say hello to the rest of the family for me. Best regards Tom
Ben ChanUnited Kingdom
We were a group of 12 doing the GOT 5hr tour. Tomislav was a great guide. He took us around Dubrovnik, including Lokrum Island, showing us all the filming locations from S2. As well as providing us with some history about Dubrovnik, and pointing out other places of note in the city, such as cliff bars, good gelato and restaurants, and even recommended a club to go to if we wanted to party (which we did, and it was awesome). He was very knowledgeable and nice. Thank you!! I can recommend Tom and his tours
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Ben. I am happy to hear that you found my insider tips helpful and that I assisted in making your one-day stay in Dubrovnik memorable. I had a great time touring with you as well. Best regards, Tom
Graham StoreyUnited Kingdom
As a family of four with two boys aged 17 and 13 we really enjoyed our tour with Tom. As two of us don't watch Game of Thrones, Tom also incorporated general Dubrovnik History in our tour. It was excellent, really informative, the GOT side was fascinating, seeing the spots where scenes were filmed. We loved the city, our walk around the walls and having Tom give us such a personal insight was great. (He also recommended a great place for lunch!). Thankyou. The Storey Family
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Graham, I hope that the rest of your holiday in Croatia will be as enjoyable as the tour we had today. Give my regards to your family. Tom
Exceptional tour by an exceptional guide. He adjusted the tour according to the needs of the participants (we are a little older and the weather was extremely hot) and the information and insights he provided were outstanding. We would book this tour again in a heartbeat. You couldn't do true justice to Dubrovnik without a guide (and his Game of Thrones knowledge was fabulous and appreciated by our group).
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Anita, I am pleased to hear that the tour was satisfactory. I admit that it was a bit difficult to move around the city walls in this heat, but the experience of the Dubrovnik would not be the same without the visit to its ancient ramparts. Anyway, I would like to congratulate you for this effort and I hope that you had enough time to rest. Give my regards to Paul, Joe and Becky
Matthew Z.United States
How do you provide a tour for 3 adults, 1 teen, 2 children, 2 in their 70's, and 1 GOT fan? I don't know how but Tom did and kept everyone happy. From the tour through town, to walking the walls, to video clips of GOT he kept everyone engaged for over 3 hours. He even arranged lunch at a wonderful local ethnic restaurant by the Spanish steps. Dubrovnik sells itself but Tom made this port the unanimous favorite of the cruise. This was my first time working with this website and I highly recommend it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Matt, Thank you. Believe it or not, you were an easy crowd to work with and I have had a great time touring with you. Say hello to your family for me, All the best, Tom
Su Ann LeongUnited Kingdom
We had an amazing time with Tom today. He was very knowledgable with facts and info of Dubrovnik. The activity was pitched at just the right level and Tom really went out of his way to cater to the needs of each individual in the tour. He also went above and beyond what he was supposed to do. He even stayed late to ensure we have seen everything as we took longer than expected climbing the walls in Dubrovnik. This is the first time I've used toursbylocal and it certainly wouldn't be the last after today.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Su Ann, Thank you very much. I am glad to hear that my tour has influenced your decision to use ToursByLocals in the future. Trust me, you will not be disappointed. Give my regards to Su May and your dad. Tom
The tour was very good. My group were all pleased with the information shared and time Tom spent with us. Tom's perspective was very moving, having lived within the city during the 1990 seige.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Al, Thank you for your kind comment. Please give my regards to your wife and the rest of the group. I wish you all the best, Tom
Deena D.United States
Ine De MeystBelgium
Tomislav was a great guide, who not only knew a lot about game of thrones but also about the real history of the city. As a family, his tour was interesting both for the Game of Thrones fans under us as for the non-watchers. Also very interesting were the pictures he made to compare the actual place with a scene from the series. A lot of these were things you would never notice on your own. An interesting tour, with a friendly, energetic guide :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ine, Thank you very much. I am happy to hear that all members of your family found the tour equally enjoyable, regardless of their own preferences (GoT, history, architecture, cultural heritage...). Kind regards, Tom
Linda DuncanUnited States
This tour was perfect. Our guide Tomislav was excellent. He was very informative with a great personality. I wanted to take him with us on the rest of our visit to Croatia. I give it the highest rating possible. Thanks for the excellent tour of Dubrovnik/Island of Lokrum.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Linda, Believe me, the pleasure was all mine. You were a great crowd to spend an afternoon with and I really enjoyed our tour. Say hello to Kristin, Robin and the mayor Rex for me. Tom
Inna DolinskyUnited States
Excellent tour! We had great time hanging out with Tomislav in King's Landing and Qarth. But even more amazing was to see the real Dubrovnik (and Lokrum) and hear its stories. Tomislav did a wonderful job taking us around the city and showing its best. Somehow, we even managed to avoid the crowds in most places. Knowing that we were planning a trip down the Peljesac Penninsula, Tom gave us excellent tips on wine tasting and places to visit. Very memorable experience! Thank you, Tom!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Inna, I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour and that the tips that I gave you were useful. Give my regards to Adam and Dmitry. All the best! Tom
This is a great tour, with a wonderful theme, in a great city, and by a great guide! Tom is both very knowledgable of the history and sites of Dubrovnik, and an avid fan of the show. We had a great time and would recommend it highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Eric, Thank you very much. As you mentioned, Dubrovnik is a great city and is hard not to be impressed by its glorious history and its cultural and natural attractions, which has obviously made my task much simpler :-) All in all, Dubrovnik provides ideal settings for a great show like GoT and I'm glad that you found my contribution to the tour to be satisfactory. Best regards, Tom
Kathleen LangevoortUnited States
The tour was fantastic- our guide Tomislav knew what he was talking about. We got a sense of Dubrovnik both as a historical city and a location for the shooting of the show, and we managed to do everything we wanted to within the allotted time. Absolutely loved it, and would recommend Tours by Locals to anyone traveling. Thanks!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kathy, Thank you very much. I am glad that you managed to enjoy Dubrovnik and see all GoT locations in spite of the limited time frame of the tour. Say hello to your brother for me. Best regards, Tom
Isabel ChuapocoUnited States
My kids and i really enjoyed our time with Tom. He is highly commendable and really took very good care of the details of the tour. I personally learned a lot about your beautiful city and it's rich culture. He is truly an asset your company. Send my families regards to him too....
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Isabel, Thank you. I hope that you and your family found the rest of your cruising holiday to be equally enjoyable and memorable. Best regards. Tom
Shelley BorovinskyUnited States
Tom was what we were looking for ! Someone with a lot of energy that could keep our kids awake. It was a very warm day in Dubrovnik and he met our expectations perfectly. He showed us places where we could go after the tour too and one was a beach area. We went to that beach and had one of the best times of our trip there ! So thank you Tom !!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Shelley, Thank you. I enjoyed doing the tour with you and the kids and I must say that it wasn't really that tiresome as you described. I had a great time touring with you and I am glad that you and the kids felt the same. Say hello to the kids for me. Tom
Brady HamedUnited States
Tomislav was an excellent guide. He knows the show inside and out, customized it to what we had already seen, and also gave us a great history of Dubrovnik. We hear about his personal stories during the war and his own relationship with Game of Thrones. He was funny, smart, and his English was excellent. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in the show. It was the perfect way to spend a morning getting to know Dubrovnik.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Brady, Thank you. My aim was to create the tour with just the right amount of facts (about the Dubrovnik history) and fiction (GoT) and I hope that I've succeeded. It was a fun tour and I'm glad that all of you enjoyed it, including your mum who hasn't seen the show (well, at least not YET). Best regards, Tom
Amazing tour. Very interesting guide and knows good english. He loves his City :) You are litterally in the scenes of GoT. I recommand this tour to everybody. Anthony Antwerp Belgium
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Anthony, Thank you for your kind comments. I am glad that you found the tour satisfactory and that it managed to spark the interest in GoT for the other members of your family that still haven't seen the show. May the best team win on 11 Oct ;-)
My 15yr old son who is a huge fan of Games of Thrones had a great time with Tom. He was friendly and went out of his way to help us with money changing etc. Well done Tom - James thought you where fantatic!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Liz, I am glad that James found the tour interesting and enjoyable. He is a true GoT fan and I have to admit that I also had a great time discussing GoT theories and further developments with him. I also hope that he also found Dubrovnik's own turbulent history as interesting as the GoT. Say hello to him on my behalf.
Judy BatesUnited States
I believe Tom to be the best guide I've ever had. He was so knowledgable about Dubrovnik and made its history come alive. I walk with a cane and Tom was always patient and helpful. My daughter, granddaughter and I had a wonderful day and have many wonderful memories of our tour and tour guide, Tom.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Judy, Thank you very much for your kind comment. The pleasure was actually all mine as I spent a great afternoon with three charming ladies. Please give my regards to your daughter and granddaughter.
Excellent tour. Tomislav was passionate about the city and the subject. He was interesting and engaging to be with and even flexed the tour to ensure we got to sample some local wine which we were keen to do. He was sensitive to my asthma and walked up the steep walls at a pace that I could cope with and also took some great snaps!!! Pleasure to spend 5 hours with and would recommend highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Alison. Again, it was my pleasure doing the tour with you and your husband (and a wine tasting break seemed to be just a right thing to do after a bit tiresome walk around the walls of King's Landing, sorry, Dubrovnik). I wish you all the best and, who knows, maybe our paths will cross again some time in the future.
Earle ComptonUnited States
"Tom" was an excellent tour guide, highly educated about the history surrounding Dubrovnik, and extremely personable. The Dubrovnik story is fascinating and the tour above the city on its walls as well as along its streets and alleys was spectacular. Tom's stories kept us spellbound, from ancient tales of the struggles to keep the Venetians at bay, to more modern events with his boyhood account of living in Dubrovnik during the Serbian siege in 1991/92. He was also helpful in setting up transportation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Earle, Thank you. I hope that the rest of your cruising holiday was as nice and pleasant as the tour in Dubrovnik. Best regards Tom
Tom was an excellent guide and we really appreciated our time with him. In addition to showing us all the Game of Thrones locations, he was extremely knowledgeable about the history and culture of the Dubrovnik region. He really took his time with us and went above and beyond in all ways!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tami, Thank you for your kind comment. I hope that you are having a great time on your Croatia/Slovenia/Hungary tour. Say hello to the guys for me. Kind regards, Tom
Marie Louise SmithAustralia
My tour of Dubrovnik Old Town with Tom was excellent. Tom's English was very good, he is a friendly and approachable guy. The tour was really informative without being a lecture. Thank you Tom for a great day. Louise xxx
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marie Louise, I am happy that you found this tour satisfactory. Thank you for your kind comments. Kind regards, Tom
Jason DonUnited States
Great tour. Tom (Tomislav) was very knowledgeable about Dubrovnik both in terms of its history and the various locations used for the filming of Game of Thrones. He himself is a huge fan and would join is in our excitement as he pointed out e various spots used for filming. Overall, amazing tour and tour guide who was really able to bring Game of Thrones to life for us. A must do for any GoT fans who make it to King's Landing..ahem..Dubrovnik.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jason, Thank you. I am glad that you found my custom-made tour of King's Landing/Dubrovnik fun and informative. Give my regards to the rest of the group and I hope that your upcoming trip to Istanbul will be equally fun. Cheers, or better yet, Valar Morghulis ;-)
Ben HaleUnited Kingdom
This was an amazing tour that I would recommend to anyone interested in GoT and interested in seeing Dubrovnik. Tom was amazingly knowledgable about both GoT and both the distant and recent history of Dubrovnik itself. He was also quite accommodating when we requested that we travel to Lokrum Island to see the sites for the House of the Undying.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ben, Thank you. I must say that I greatly enjoyed touring with the two true GoT fans like Jill and you. Best regards Tom

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello José, I am glad to hear that you and your friends enjoyed the tour. It was also nice to see you again in Ston few days after, while I was touring with Japanese group. I hope that the rest of your biking/sailing holiday was equally enjoyable. I wish you all the best, Tom
Excellent tour guide for Dubrovnik! We thoroughly enjoyed Tom's tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Shirley, Thank you. I tried to make up for lousy weather that we've been experiencing during the tour and I hope that I succeeded ;-) Anyway, I must say that I also enjoyed your company. All the best, Tom
