What You Can Expect

'Game of Thrones' Filming Locations Tour in Malta

See famous 'Game of Thrones' filming locations

Following pickup from your Malta hotel, you’ll travel by climate-controlled vehicle to an area known as the ‘three villages.’ On route, your guides, two actors who appeared in Game of Thrones, will share stories about their time on set.

Visit the Presidential Palace and stretch your legs on an amble through the King’s Landing gardens. Take a look at the Tower of the Hand, where the so-called Hand of the King resides, and have your camera ready for Maegor's Holdfast, a fortress used during the filming of the Battle of the Blackwater.

Back in the comfort of your vehicle, you’ll meander along backcountry roads to the Shadow Cliffs to gaze out over the desert-like terrain of Red Waste. After hearing tales of dragons that were born there, venture northward to an interesting hamlet better known as Lhazar village. Continue to the medieval city of Mdina to enjoy lunch.

In the afternoon, your Game of Thrones tour of Mdina begins. Here, you’ll discover key locations such as the yard of Tobho Mott, the Baelish Brothel, King’s Gate, and Coppersmith’s Wynd Cobbler's Square.

From Mdina, travel to Rabat and check out a monastery there—just one of the settings of the famous Red Keep fortress. You full-day tour then finishes with a hotel drop-off in the early evening.

Perfect way to see and visit the historical places out of the city centres. Be prepare for a long and various day and some short walks. The tour leader Malcolm Ellul let us know in a comfortable bus many hidden places and secrets of the GOT. Great! For GOT fans not to miss.

I thought I would be a tagalong to my daughter who is a big GoT fan on this tour but it was marvelous for me as well. We were taken all over the island, enjoying the wide variety of scenery and historical architecture, learned of the multitude of movies I had no idea were filmed there, hearing interesting background on the making of GoT and other hit movies, all presented by our excellent and entertaining guide Malcolm. Of course my daughter was over the moon with all the iconic GoT sites in front of her. We scheduled our visit to Malta around this tour and it was a great decision!!

Malcom was the best guide to have on this tour that was super comprehensive and fabulous.
This is a must-do for all GoT fans, but the ones who are not into the series will be equally pleased with how organised this tour was.
The places are gorgeous and the tour company employed thorough professionals. Loved it.

Malcolm was excellent. Pick up was on time and the whole tour from beginning to end was exciting and very interesting. Behind the scenes stories were great as were going to places familiar to anyone who watches the series. Being with an actor and a busload of GoT geeks was a wonderful way to spend a day in Malta!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2018

Amazing tour not to be missed while in Malta!!! Saw everything that the island has to offer, not just Game of Thrones. Also got to meet the President of Malta on the tour. Having actual actors from Game of Thrones as your guide was unbelievable and very informative. Best ever!!!

I cannot recommend this tour highly enough, it was by far the best thing we did during our time in Malta. Malcolm was an amazing tour guide with so much info and great backstage stories of GoT! We also got to see Popeye’s Village which was a great surprise. Thank you Malcolm for a brilliant day!

This was the best tour of all the tours I took. Even people who are not GOT fans would enjoy it. Using the GOT filming sites Malcolm explained a lot about how filming sites are organized, how they use various techniques to alter the sites to create different effects, how cgi is integrated into a scene and interesting stories about the inevitable mishaps and things that can happen during filming.

He explained how sites present themselves to a film company in a bid to bring them there. Told us about the many films that have used Malta and all the while integrated aspects of Maltas fascinating into the sites.

From pickup, through traveling to sites all over Malta, arranging a good place for lunch and drop off everything run smoothly and efficiently. You know a lot of planning and work goes into making something with complex logistics run so well.

Malcom was the best tour guide we have ever had - incredibly knowledgable and informed and a communicated everything in an entertaining manner. Saw a host of locations and sites and learned so much about not just GOT but making movies in general. Well, well worth the time and money.

Whether or not you are a fan of GoT this is a great trip. Malcolm the guide generously shared his knowledge about the film making business. He brought us to many of the locations used in the hit TV series.
The tour is well organised and informative. Malcolm was the star of the show, he kept all engaged and entertained for the whole day


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2018

We went on this tour on Saturday 20th January 2018. The best tour ever ! Guided by Malcolm and Elizabeth Ellul, two local actors who have between them worked in/on over 100 productions including Gladiator, Troy, Munich, Game of Thrones, By the Sea, WWZ, Risen, Sinbad, The Cut, Roman Mysteries, Eichmann, U-900, Adrift, When Pigs have Wings, Simshar, ... We enjoyed every minute of it. In GOT Malcolm played a dothraki, a goldcloak and a knight of the kings guard. Malcolm told us a lot about the game of thrones sites, a lot about the tricks used in low budget productions but also a lot of information on other movies made in Malta. He included also a lot of historical facts so it became a nice mixture. I recommend the tour to anyone interested in GOT or Movie Making, even if you're not a Game of Thrones fan, this tour is still worth it as you see a lot of Malta and its lovely history. This tour is raked N 1 in Tripadvisor with a Certificate of Excellence 2017.See you next time Malcolm !
