When the US production company behind the Game of Thrones series picked Dubrovnik as the setting for the capital city of Westeros, King’s Landing, they could not have chosen better.
The Old Town is so striking that it seems to have leapt directly from the pages of George R. R Martin’s addictive series of novels and it is no coincidence that Dubrovnik was also a capital city in its own right – of the now extinct Republic of Ragusa.
On this guided walking tour, you will be taken through all the parts of the Old City where some of the most memorable scenes from the ongoing cultural phenomenon were filmed, including: The Pile Gate where King Joffrey was faced with a citizens’ riot and pelted with dung, the Lovrijenac fort (menacing Red Keep), and the place where the unsuccessful attack on King's Landing - the Battle of Blackwater - took place. The seemingly endless fortified walls will be seen from Lovrijenac fort where Tyrion Lannister and Varys took a stroll, with Tyrion uttering the immortal words: ''Where is the god of tits and wine'' and the views of the location of the shocking Purple Wedding that set in motion so many plot twists. Jesuit Stairs is the place of the infamous Walk of Shame where you will almost certainly hear someone yelling “Shame” when you get there. The only thing missing would be scandalously naked queen Cersei.
All filming locations, including ones from the final 8th season, are accompanied with commentary from a local guide with detailed scene descriptions and actual stills and images of scenes from the exact episodes they made an appearance on. Throughout the tour, you can also hear fascinating stories of Dubrovnik history and interesting tidbits and gossip from behind the scenes about sets and actors as some of our guides were Game of Thrones extras, stand-ins and members of the production crew. No do it yourself self-tour of the GOT locations can beat hearing insider stories and hilarious first-hand anecdotes from the people that worked on the show.
Have a blast recollecting the best moments of the show and take home some unique memories with you! If you have watched the series and you are passionate about GOT this is a perfect thing to do while visiting Dubrovnik.
We are Game of Throne fans. Not the die hard, know every detail, live and breathe fans. But we love watching the show. What better opportunity to take a Game of Throne tour hen when actually in King's Landing (Dubrovnik).
The tour is two hours and 150 kuna, which I was worried would be too long especially since we walked the entire wall that morning. However, it was a great tour and time flew by. There is a lot of walking but the guide was fantastic very informative. She is a repeat extra on the show so she gave us behind the scenes info. She had a flip book with pictures from the various scenes in show to remind us of the specific scene and background. This was super helpful.
One thing to note is all Game of Throne tours take you to St. Lawrence Fort, which has separate entrance fee. If you have your City Walls ticket with you, this gets you the entrance to the fort.
Would definitely recommend this tour!

What an awesome tour! My partner and I did an afternoon tour after arriving in Dubrovnik earlier that day. We messed up by waiting outside of old town at the wrong fountain (you need to go inside the walls FYI to the BIG fountain! Was pretty obvious once we realized), unfortunately this meant we missed our pre-booked timeslot of 4 pm however the staff were great and let us use the same ticket to join the 5 pm tour.
Our tour guide was fun, friendly and enthusiastic about the tour. He provided comparisons of the GOT sets and scenes to actual locations, as well as plenty of local knowledge and history of the city itself. He ended the tour by leading us to the official HBO GOT gift shop which has an iron throne replica for photos. All up the tour was probably just over 2 hours, to wear comfortable walking shoes and bring some water as it is hot. My partner had not watched the show however he thoroughly enjoyed the tour, especially walking inside the city walls. Worth it and a great way to explore the city.
