What To Expect

Your exclusive 'Game of Thrones' tour of Dubrovnik starts as you meet your guide at Pile Square in Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Take off on your walking tour along the historic streets, stopping to check out locations used in the filming of the uber-popular HBO television show, adapted from George R.R. Martin's 'A Song of Ice and Fire' epic novel series that spans many years of brutal fighting between the noble families of fictional Westeros.

The show is shot in locations throughout Europe, but Dubrovnik, with its red rooftops and stunning coastal location on the Adriatic Sea, is one of the most recognizable as King’s Landing, the capital of the realm’s seven kingdoms. Trace Ayra Stark's footsteps to see where she hid from the Lannisters on the streets; walk up the city walls that were attacked by the Baratheons; and check out Lovrijenac Fortress, an 11th-century castle perched high above the sea, aka Blackwater Bay, which is featured in battle scenes, most prominently the Battle of Blackwater.

You also see a softer side of things as you visit parks and other open spaces used to film scenes set in the countryside. Throughout your tour, listen to commentary from your guide about the various characters who have come in and out of King's Landing, including the three main families—Targaryens, Baratheons, and Starks. Your tour ends when you return to your start point in Old Town.

Trsteno Arboretum Upgrade: To enhance your 'Game of Thrones' experience, select the upgrade option to visit Trsteno Arboretum, one of the oldest arboretums in Croatia. Travel to the park by minibus at the end of your walking tour to discover this additional filming location, used as King's Landing's palace gardens during the show's third season. Explore thousands of trees and exotic plants, and admire Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque details while you hear more about the War of the Five Kings. Your tour ends with drop-off at the original starting point in Old Town.

Pile Gate

Meeting our licensed tour guide by the 'Dubravka 1836' restaurant at Pile Square marks the start of your exclusive 'Game of Thrones' tour. Placed right outside the Old Town city walls, this spot is just perfect not only for providing you with introductory details about the tour, but also for drawing your attention to some of the city attractions you will hear more about later on the tour: the Pile Gate, the Old Town city walls, the Lovrijenac fort.

5 minutesAdmission Ticket Free

Fort Lovrijenac

Nicknamed 'the Dubrovnik Gibraltar', but also known as the Red Keep among the Game of Thrones fans, the Lovrijenac fortress rises on a cliff outside the Old Town city walls, 37 m (121 ft) above sea level. Built in the 11th century within just three months' time, this fort symbolizes the resistance to the Venetian Republic. Visiting the Lovrijenac fortress on this walking tour is a chance for you to enjoy many impressive views of the capital of the Seven Kingdoms.

Traveler Tips


Make sure to wear comfy shoes and bring water, there will be times you have to climb lots of steps (just like anywhere in Dubrovnik
Also, if you have mobility issues it will be difficult to do the Tour, there is a lot of climbing up stairs.
The tour also included admission to the city walls, which was advantageous to use later on in the day to see more of the city on your own.

Thoroughly enjoyable.
Haleema_A, May 2022
I booked this tour for a trined and myself. The group size was 6 which was the perfect size to be able to clearly hear the guide and adjust the pace if needed. Our tour guide was Katarina who was absolutely fantastic. She was clear, detailed and informative and we liked the way she included the history of Dubrovnik and anecdotes of the actors during the tour itself. The 4.5 hours went so quickly because of her enthusiasm, energy & sense of humour. She takes great photos too. Will definitely recommend this tour and if you get Katarina you are lucky. Thank you.

Great guide, great tour!
Kira_D, May 2022
I was hugely looking forward to this tour and was not disappointed! Lana was a very informed and helpful guide. Be prepared for an intense walk, but you get a lot out of the experience including a very personable guide who does her best to help you! She was very easy going and knowledgeable about both GoT and the history of Dubrovnik, had some interesting conversations. Would highly recommend if you’re looking for a thorough tour with a local guide!

Tea was expert in her knowledge of dubrovnik and game of Thrones. the tour was very informative. It starts at the castle/Fort then moves to the old town. The tour includes a ticket to the walls but you do that yourself within 72 hours.

Lisa_G, Apr 2022
Barbara was an excellent tour guide. She took us to the fortress, the walk of shame steps, showed us various filming locations at the boat dock, and then we went to the arboretum a short van ride away. You get a ticket to walk the city walls included but you do that by yourself later. And of course, pictures in a souvenir shop on the " Iron Throne".

Just amazing!
Corey_B, Oct 2021
We had Dubrovna and she was simply amazing. Had a ton of knowledge surrounding the show and books and was very into it, which made it extremely enjoyable for us. Shared a plethora of knowledge about the filming and other great local insights about the filming in Dubrovnik. Could not recommend high enough for any GOT enthusiast.
Amazing tour of a beautiful city with a fabulous tour guide!
Stephanie_C, Sep 2021
This was my first time to Dubrovnik & I'm so glad I did this tour! Our guide, Ivanna, was so brilliant, she had great stories & a real passion for her city. I'd 100% recommend anyone to take this tour.
Small group but expensive
Isabella_J, Sep 2021
Tour was only 2 hours (listed as 3 hours). Hit a couple of the cool Game of Thrones filming spots but quite expensive for such a short tour. Would have liked more information about Dubrovnik and other facts.
Response from Host, Oct 2021
Dear Isabella, we assure you that you haven't hit just a couple of the cool filming spots. You saw all the best filming locations and the most important ones. As you can see from the previous comments here and on TripAdvisor, we receive nothing but compliments for this tour. Also, please note that the price includes entrance fees!

Great 1st Stop for GoT lovers in Dubrovnik
David_R, Sep 2021
We loved this experience. Our guide Mina (sp?) was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. It was clear that she enjoyed the show as much as those who took the walking tour. Her English was fanstastic. We loved how she would walk us to an area then have us guess what took place in that exact spot, and then show us with a framed picture what it looked like during the taping. She even knew which scenes looked like they might have been in Dubrovnik, but were actually filmed in other locations. This was a great way to start our three days in Dubrovnik as we got to explore the entire Old Town and get acclimated with its intricacies. What was even more special was her ability to weave in Dubrovnik's rich history and day-to-day life which really brought it alive. Thank you and Bravo!
Great Tour
Randall_S, Sep 2021
This was fantastic tour for all GOT fans. Our tour guide was Yvonne who is also a huge fan of GOT. I would highly recommend this tour.
