Full description
Take this tour to learn about the history of Dubrovnik and see the filming locations of scenes from the hit show, Game of Thrones. The first stop of this tour is Pile Bay. Have a beautiful view of Fort Lawrence which was depicted as the Red Keep in the show. From Pile Bay, head to the main entrance gate of the old town, Pile Gate. Used as a filming location for riots, this area was closed off to the public during its use. Fortunately, it's now open and you'll be able to walk through it as your guide tells you important details and historical facts about how it's changed over the centuries.  Enter the main street and walk past monuments in which your guide will explain their significance and origins. See the Franciscan Monastery, Onofrio Fountain, and St. Saviors Church. Get off the beaten track and see the hidden corners locals frequent and see the town from a different perspective.  Walk down a side street that hides many interesting stories from the past that will make you feel like you're living in the history of old Ragusa. Stumble upon Gothic Rector's Palace and gaze at what is arguably the most beautiful building in Dubrovnik with its Venetian details. Finally head to the location of one of the show's most iconic scenes. See the walk of shame steps that appear much smaller than they are in the show. Hear from your guide about details of filming and difficulties experienced to gain a much deeper knowledge of the show's production.

Really liked the walk. Jelena was a enthousiastic judge. She knew a lot of dubrovnik and game of thrones. She is actually a local who used to live in the old city and she took part in the filming of GOT as a figurant. She tells you a lot of intereseting facts about the city's history and she is also a real GOT fan and shows/tells al the details of Dubrovnik as a filming set (scènes, camera angles, behind the scène stories, ...) I would really recommend this walk

Really good informative tour with our guide Jelena! She was clearly very enthusiastic which came across in the tour. We saw lots of Game of Thrones filming sites with a great mix of filming stories and information about the history of Dubrovnik Old Town. We had all questions answered well by Jelena, including great restaurant recommendations!

It was such a great experience!! Ms. Jelena, who was my guide, shared so much about the history of the city, Game of Thrones and local community. She put everything in a witty and interesting way, it was pure joy to just listen to her. I can't even tell when 1,5 hour passed, really! My tour also turned out to be a private tour, as the other people rescheduled last minute. I appreciate was able to join it anyway, it was super amuzing to be the only person, and with Ms. Jelena I felt I was havng a walk with a friend :D I booked this tour on my last day in Dubrovnik, but I wish I had done at the beginning of my stay. Thanks to Ms. Jelena, I was able to look at the city with a different approach and started paying attention to details which I had not noticed before. I feel I learned a lot, about the city, local community and the show's production. For me, it was a perfect blend of history and GoT anecdotes. I would say it's a must-do!!
