About the tour

This tour starts by the western gates of the Old City and it's a combined overview of the most important landmarks, real history of Dubrovnik and its role as King's Landing in Game of Thrones.

First find out how the city, also known as "The Pearl of Adriatic", came to be, how it grew and lived throughout the turbulent centuries.

Then immerse yourselves into the world of "Ice and Fire", that is Game of Thrones, and you will soon realize why the writer of that globally popular series said the following: "The first time we saw Dubrovnik it was a shock because the whole city really looked the way we pictured King's Landing" [David Benioff].

During the tour we avoid crowded streets and instead walk through the hidden alleys, so that we approach main landmarks of the Old City from non-mainstream directions.

You will see:

- Kolorina Cove (Blackwater Bay)

- Saint Lawrence Fortress (without enter)

- Pile Gate (western gates and moat)

- Large Onofrio's fountain

- Jesuite stairs (Walk of Shame stairs)

- the Cathedral (without enter)

- Rector's palace (without enter)

- the Main square

- Orlando’s Column

- Sponza palace

and more...

- the Irone Throne (replica) [optional at the end of the tour!]

IMPORTANT:

Maximum number of participants: 10

I suggest you take a bottle of water.

We had a great time at Victor's tour and time passed so fast. It covers the city's history as well as Game of Thrones filming locations and additional infos. Even though it was a very hot afternoon Victor tried to find a nice spot in the shade. After the tour he was very helpful with restaurant suggestions and other things to do :) We absolutely recommend this tour!

Response from Viktor:

Dear Bettina, thanks a lot for your appreciation. Even though it's hot, as you said, I hope you'll do the hike on Mount Srđ and enjoy the view from up there. That little hill is a piece of cake for our Austrian friends ;) Take care and all the best, Viktor

Viktor is an absolutely amazing guide - trust me, one of the best I’ve ever had and I do a lot of tours in many cities! The tour provides the right mix of information about Dubrovnik WITH in depth GOT stuff. Normally you’d have to book two separate tours if you wanted this kind of experience. You’re really getting two tours for the price of one here! He’s so intelligent, he’s really friendly and approachable, and he’s full of great recommendations on how to spend your time in Dubrovnik. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!
