Our guide was Natasha and she was brilliant. Not only was the audio tour for the Game of Thrones superb she supplemented this with photographs of actual scenes as we went from location to location.
We also had a Croatia history lesson at the St Lawrence tower, which to me was very important.
Arrived in the morning at the appointed time but there were only three of us so the tour could not go ahead. I don't think we understood that there had to be a minimum of four people before the tour would start. That said we were advised to comeback at another time and were told that no matter how many people turned up we would go on the tour. A little bit of a waste of time but in the end we went on the tour later in the day. A local guide who was very knowledgeable providing us with good history about all the areas of the town. Although there were lots of steps the tour was very manageable with frequent stops for photos and information. We were also advised that we could use our tickets to visit the St Lawrence fort and again well worth the walk. A very good tour and one that we would certainly recommend as a must.
I booked this tour because I am a big GoT fan, and I was not disappointed. We did the long tour including Trsteno Arboretum, which all in all took about 5 hours. Our guide Natasha was very nice and knowledgeable both about the series and about the city itself. The tour is a mixture of regular city tour which is also very interesting and visiting locations where they filmed for the series, including Fort Lovrijenac and the city walls. The guide has a lot of photos of the scenes from the series, and it is cool to compare them to the real scenery. I enjoyed the tour very much, but I have to deduct one star from the rating because of the following reasons:
We climbed the city walls, where there is almost no shade, in the middle of the day when the sun was very hot. It would have been nicer to do this first thing in the morning, when it's not that hot and also fewer people on the walls.
I can understand that the GoT specifics make up most of the tour, since it is literally named GoT tour, but in my opinion some more information about the city in general would have been great.
The Trsteno Arboretum was very nice, but since it's almost a half an hour to drive there, we would have liked to stay a little longer. The stay there seemed quite short, and we would have liked to explore the gardens some more.
For Game of Thrones fans this is a fantastic tour and a great way to see the old town Dubrovnik and the city walls while also learning about the filming locations. Ana was a great guide and clearly very knowledgeable about the show. We were lucky that filming for Season 4 was taking place and we managed to spot a couple of actors from Fort Lawrence.
