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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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!
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!
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!
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
Martha Rosas acostaMexico
We are big fans of the series and Tomislav Gave us a great tour with lots of information. Really enjoyed the tour

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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Gordon, I hope that your drive back to Budva wasn't too tiresome. Give my regards to the rest of the group. Tom
Michael HwangUnited States
Great guide, took pictures for us and showed us a lot of places.

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
Graham WalkerUnited Kingdom
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!
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
Louis ThompsonUnited States
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
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)
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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:-)
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
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.
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
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.
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

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 ;-)

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
