Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your exclusive 'Game of Thrones' tour of Dubrovnik starts as you meet your guide at Pile Square in Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Take off on your walking tour along the historic streets, stopping to check out locations used in the filming of the uber-popular HBO television show, adapted from George R.R. Martin's 'A Song of Ice and Fire' epic novel series that spans many years of brutal fighting between the noble families of fictional Westeros.

The show is shot in locations throughout Europe, but Dubrovnik, with its red rooftops and stunning coastal location on the Adriatic Sea, is one of the most recognizable as King’s Landing, the capital of the realm’s seven kingdoms. Trace Ayra Stark's footsteps to see where she hid from the Lannisters on the streets; walk up the city walls that were attacked by the Baratheons; and check out Lovrijenac Fortress, an 11th-century castle perched high above the sea, aka Blackwater Bay, which is featured in battle scenes, most prominently the Battle of Blackwater.

You also see a softer side of things as you visit parks and other open spaces used to film scenes set in the countryside. Throughout your tour, listen to commentary from your guide about the various characters who have come in and out of King's Landing, including the three main families—Targaryens, Baratheons, and Starks. Your tour ends when you return to your start point in Old Town.

Trsteno Arboretum Upgrade: To enhance your 'Game of Thrones' experience, select the upgrade option to visit Trsteno Arboretum, one of the oldest arboretums in Croatia. Travel to the park by minibus at the end of your walking tour to discover this additional filming location, used as King's Landing's palace gardens during the show's third season. Explore thousands of trees and exotic plants, and admire Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque details while you hear more about the War of the Five Kings. Your tour ends with drop-off at the original starting point in Old Town.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Pile Gate
Meeting our licensed tour guide by the 'Dubravka 1836' restaurant at Pile Square marks the start of your exclusive 'Game of Thrones' tour. Placed right outside the Old Town city walls, this spot is just perfect not only for providing you with introductory details about the tour, but also for drawing your attention to some of the city attractions you will hear more about later on the tour: the Pile Gate, the Old Town city walls, the Lovrijenac fort.
Duration: 5 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Fort Lovrijenac
Nicknamed 'the Dubrovnik Gibraltar', but also known as the Red Keep among the Game of Thrones fans, the Lovrijenac fortress rises on a cliff outside the Old Town city walls, 37 m (121 ft) above sea level. Built in the 11th century within just three months' time, this fort symbolizes the resistance to the Venetian Republic. Visiting the Lovrijenac fortress on this walking tour is a chance for you to enjoy many impressive views of the capital of the Seven Kingdoms.
Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At:  
Old Town
Passing through the Pile Gate, the western entrance to the Old Town, you will reach the historical core of Dubrovnik.

Duration: 2 hours 
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Walls of Dubrovnik
A part of this exclusive experience is a walk along the city walls. The city walls of Dubrovnik are a series of defensive stone walls surrounding the Old Town. Built from the 13th to the 17th century and almost 2 km (1,24 mi) long, these walls represent one of the most beautiful fortification systems in Europe. At some points, their height reaches 25 m (82 ft), so a walk along the walls is a must if you want to see those red rooftops of King's Landing or simply look out over Blackwater Bay.
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Trsteno Arboretum
Upgrade to include a trip to Trsteno Arboretum and after just a short drive in a comfortable vehicle you will find yourself in one of the oldest arboretums in Croatia.

Just amazing!

We had Dubrovna and she was simply amazing. Had a ton of knowledge surrounding the show and books and was very into it, which made it extremely enjoyable for us. Shared a plethora of knowledge about the filming and other great local insights about the filming in Dubrovnik. Could not recommend high enough for any GOT enthusiast.

This was my first time to Dubrovnik & I'm so glad I did this tour! Our guide, Ivanna, was so brilliant, she had great stories & a real passion for her city. I'd 100% recommend anyone to take this tour.

Small group but expensive

Tour was only 2 hours (listed as 3 hours). Hit a couple of the cool Game of Thrones filming spots but quite expensive for such a short tour. Would have liked more information about Dubrovnik and other facts.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Dear Isabella, we assure you that you haven't hit just a couple of the cool filming spots. You saw all the best filming locations and the most important ones. As you can see from the previous comments here and on TripAdvisor, we receive nothing but compliments for this tour. Also, please note that the price includes entrance fees!

Great 1st Stop for GoT lovers in Dubrovnik

We loved this experience. Our guide Mina (sp?) was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. It was clear that she enjoyed the show as much as those who took the walking tour. Her English was fanstastic. We loved how she would walk us to an area then have us guess what took place in that exact spot, and then show us with a framed picture what it looked like during the taping. She even knew which scenes looked like they might have been in Dubrovnik, but were actually filmed in other locations. This was a great way to start our three days in Dubrovnik as we got to explore the entire Old Town and get acclimated with its intricacies. What was even more special was her ability to weave in Dubrovnik's rich history and day-to-day life which really brought it alive. Thank you and Bravo!

Me and my group of friends totally loved this experience!! The Guide was very funny, kind and clear with the story telling. Everyone understood perfectly what was said. We believe that the GOT Tour experience brings much value to a stay in Dubrovnik, not only to visit the well known filming spots, but specially to get to know backstage cusiosities and how it was for the locals to have the show running in their town. We really recommend the tour!!

Top notch. Wish Ivana was able to talk more about Dubrovnik’s history but she reminded us we booked the GoT exclusive and her hands were tied. She was great. Had an awesome personality and an edge that we really appreciated.

A great tour for any Game of Thrones fans. My wife and I watched the series, but do not consider ourselves mega-fans. We enjoyed seeing the filming locations and even sprung for the extended version of the tour to see the garden - would recommend doing the extended version as the garden tour may have been the best part of the tour. While it’s a lot of walking and steps, it’s very much worth it. Doing this tour also buys your entry to your the wall, which you can visit later in the day or the days after.
