Davor was knowledgeable, hilarious and charming all in one. The tour was mainly booked for my boyfriend who’s a GoT fan but by the end of the tour it made me want to watch the show as well! Very fun tour, gorgeous views, epic photo opportunities and a host who has you laughing from start to finish. Highly recommend!

We had an amazing and unforgettable experience with Davor. So many interesting facts from behind the scenes of the Game of Thrones. A lot of other historical moments around the city. He is a good actor himself :) we had so much fun.

Mario was a great guide! Funny, professional, and gave a well-rounded tour about Game of Thrones and how it fit into the wider picture of European history and the impact it had on Dubrovnik.

My husband was a Game of Thrones fan and enjoyed Davor's quizzes. I enjoyed learning about Dubrovnik's history and location production information. Davor was a great tour guide.
