My daughter and I did the 5 hour extended tour of Game of Thrones in Dubrovnik and it was amazing. Michaela was the guide for the walking tour part of the tour and she was lovely, friendly and, had lots of good stories to tell us. We had a lot of fun with her. Mario was our guide for the afternoon part which included a drive to the arboretum amongst other places. He too was very friendly, gave us great insight into the filming of GOT sights and, he was exceptionally well informed on the history of Yugoslavia and Croatia. We learned so much about the former Yugoslavia and Croatia. I was thoroughly impressed. I would highly recommend this tour for those who want to learn more about the filming of GOT in Croatia and acquire a much better understanding of Croatia. It was well worth the money!

Absolutely fantastic tour. Mario and Katja were extremely knowledgeable and made the tour very entertaining. We travelled with friends who have never seen GOT and despite this, they thoroughly enjoyed the tour too. Highly recommend this tour for fans and non fans alike. Thank you for the highlight of our holiday to Dubrovnik!
