As a Game of Thrones fan, I cannot express how incredible this experience was! Our tour guide was not only incredibly knowledgeable about the sights we were seeing but also made the entire experience feel incredibly immersive and fun. The Stark cloaks were also a really fun touch and actually quite warm. Plenty of opportunities to take photos in all these incredible locations but be warned that the pace needed to keep up and see everything is a brisk walk so be prepared to get in your steps! Even without the extra bonus of the filming locations, seeing the architecture and scenic landscapes makes it more than worth it

At first I was skeptical because the guide and the bus were late to the agreed meeting point. But the way the guide tuned in was just world class. Too bad the day ended so quickly. At the beginning I was skeptical because the guide and the bus were late for the agreed meeting point. But the way the guide simply got us into the mood was world class. It was a pity that the day ended so quickly.

For game of thrones fans it's an amazing experience! Lar takes you on a real experience among the places that inspired the sets of the TV series, and walking in cloaks in the forest.. wow! I'll never forget it! Thanks for everything, super recommended!

Great experience, super cool guide who was always up for a joke. And since he was an extra, he had a lot to say about the shooting. The weather cooperated, the long bus ride was an opportunity to see a big make-off from Got.

Spectacular experience, a fantastic adventure to places that make you feel part of history. Lar's, the guide, has solid knowledge and is undoubtedly a plus that adds value to the experience
