It is a must do tour if you are a fan of game of thrones. The guide JOSIP was super nice. And I would recommend to have him as your guide as he was super nice and funny.
The tour starts with a short walk to the first filming location, which is known in "King's Landing" as Blackwater Bay. It's one of the major settings where several scenes were shot. Your tour guide will show you screen caps and teach you about the film making process of GoT. Next, climb up the staircase to the "Red Keep“ to enjoy a beautiful view over the Adriatic Sea and Old Town Dubrovnik. Afterward, it's time to enter the gates and stroll the streets of the King’s Landing. Out of many locations, the staircase of the Great Sept of Bailor is a particular highlight. Fans will recall that Cersei’s walk of shame was filmed here, one of the most pivotal moments in the show. For the big finale, you will jump on the ferry to Lokrum island. This beautiful oasis just outside of Old Town was the setting for the city "Qarth". In season two, it was the city Daenerys found shelter in after the d...
Jelena was an excellent tour guide. She's extremely knowledgeable, speaks clear and fluent English, and is a caring person who goes out of her way to capture memories of the experience for you.
Dubrovnik is arguably the most recognizable filming location of the very successful TV series Game of Thrones. Follow in the footsteps of Tyrion, Sansa, Joffrey and many others as you visit the location of King's Landing. Witness how the film crew transformed Dubrovnik’s historical landmarks into places in the capital of Westeros. Let your eyes wander across the bay, where Stannis Baratheon tried to take over King's Landing to sit on the Iron Throne in the epic Battle of Blackwater. Enter the Red Keep and see places where Joffrey is always up to mischief, and take a look at the location where Magaery Tyrell and Joffrey celebrated their Purple Wedding. Or, put yourself in the position of Cersei waiting for her walk of atonement to start. Listen to behind-the-scenes stories of Game of Thrones and find out what some of the main actors experienced during their stay here in Dubrovnik. The...

Follow in the footsteps of your favorite "Game Of Thrones" characters and discover what the real "King's Landing" looks like. Dubrovnik was selected as the location set for the hit HBO TV series in seasons 2 to 5 (and some of season 6). Your guide is licensed by the Croatian Ministry of Tourism, fluent in English, and a big "Game of Thrones" fan. In addition to sites in the walled old town, visit the Fort of St. Lawrence. As you journey to each location, look at a book of photos from the series that explains the scenes and locations where filming took place.
The guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining - so much more information than we expected. Would highly recommend this tour
Explore the walled Old Town of Dubrovnik and learn about the maritime Republic of Ragusa on a guided tour of the monuments of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Admire Renaissance and Baroque architecture within the 2-kilometer long defensive walls and stroll down the central Stradun. See one of the oldest pharmacies in the world at the Franciscan Church and Monastery and visit the Rector's Palace and Fort Lovrijenac. Get ample photo opportunities on the pedestrianized streets, and use your free time to take the cable car to the top of Srđ Hill. Take in the magnificent views of Dubrovnik and the archipelago, or stroll around the Old Town at leisure.
The day trip from Split to Dubrovnik was a joy. Dubrovnik is a gorgeous place, which can easily get overcrowded, due to its small size (the Old Town). Even in mid September, it was hot. The Old Town can be enjoyed from the city walls, but this requires a good shape, since it is quite a hike. The cable car ride is very much worth it also. The view from the mountain is amazing. The road trip from Split is also beautiful, especially the second part, as the Dubrovnik area looks amazing. I found the guided tour part too long (1 hour), as a lot of information is available and can be read by those interested. After that I had to run from one place to another in the remaining 3 hours, and I had not enough time left to enjoy a proper lunch, all the more that most places were crowded. Overall, given the context, the trip with Gray Lines was excellent, well organized, in A/C minivans (participants were split in 2 smaller groups). Border crossing went smoothly.
Not only is Dubrovnik a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it's also the home of King's Landing, the capital of the seven kingdoms, overlooking Blackwater Bay. In Game of Thrones, a series of fantasy novels by George R.R. Martin, adapted from "A Song of Ice and Fire," Dubrovnik was used to represent the King’s Landing. Locations used in the show include: St. Dominic Street, Lokrum Island, the Rector's Palace and Sponza Palace, Fort Lovrijenac, Fort Bokar and the Minčeta Tower. The production also used the nearby Trsteno Arboretum. Join the Karaka ship that was used in the making of Game of Thrones on a cruise around delightful Dubrovnik. Relax while sipping on a Game of Thrones-inspired cocktail and enjoy views of King’s Landing. Major Thrones enthusiasts can take photos in costumes on the ship and on the Iron Throne — a perfect memory of your visit to magical Westeros. Back on shore, walk ...

We visited Dubrovnik during 2020 coronavirus pandemic. The city had much fewer visitors than ever, therefore me and my husband were the only ones joining the tour. Even so, Sonja was very kind and carried on the tour just for us. She was very knowleadgeable about the GoT movie, but also she offered some historic facts about the city, at our request, and even gave us some tips to help us during our stay. Thank you very much for this experience, it was unique! All the best!
Start your tour of Dubrovnik with a visit to the Stradun Promenade for your first impression of one of the Mediterranean’s most beautiful cities and its astonishing stone walls that extend over 1,940 meters (6,500 feet).

Almost entirely pedestrianized, the medieval town is a treasure trove of architectural gems. See columned porticoes and loggias fringing Renaissance squares of marble.
