Watching the show is one thing, but actually visiting Dubrovnik, or should we say King's Landing, is really something else! Are you dying to know where all the most famous GoT scenes in Dubrovnik were filmed? Instead of walking around the city trying to find the filming locations by yourself, join our small-group Game of Thrones walking tour and together with your local guide and fellow Thronies discover the capital of the Seven Kingdoms!
WHAT WILL YOU SEE AND DO ON THIS TOUR?
We’ll start our exploration at Pile square and after a short introduction we’ll take you right where the action was, down by the sea at Blackwater Bay to really start the tour with a bang! Your guide will tell you about the background to filming Game of Thrones in Dubrovnik, how it all started with season 2 back in 2011 and also show you how and where the epic Battle of the Blackwater scenes were filmed.
Next, get ready to dive deeper into the action as we take you all the way up to the Red Keep, or in reality the beautiful fort Lovrijenac, nestled atop a huge cliff overlooking the Old town of Dubrovnik. Your tour guide will show you the epic scenes from season 2, including the legendary discussion over the true nature of power between queen Cersei and Littlefinger. Guess what? If you’re up for it, you can do a little reenactment, directed by your tour guide and with the help from your friends and fellow travellers on the tour!
We’ll show you the scenes with Joffrey, Tyrion and the Hound and explain how the production team managed to turn the beautiful 14th century fortress into a place of epic fantasy. Your guide will make sure to mention some of the filming locations that you can visit later on your own, in your free time, and explain how to get there. The first half of this two-hour Game of Thrones tour will take place up on the fort, one of the most important filming locations, offering picture-perfect views of the Old town and the blue Adriatic sea.
We’ll have a group photo near the huge 16th century cannon before we head towards the Old town. Just inside Pile gate your guide will show you how they shot the massive Riot of King’s Landing scene for which they had to shut the whole area down! Relive the memorable scenes like the ones when Joffrey was pelted with dung or when Sansa escaped, but also the return of Jaime Lannister at the end of season 3.
Then it’s time to climb the stairs to get to Littlefinger’s brothel and afterwards, we’ll show you the filming locations where Tyrion met with the Red Viper of Dorne, Oberyn Martell, and you’ll hear from your tour guide how the crew organized the set and the actual shooting. Together we’ll compare the fantasy and the reality, by looking for the CGI graphics on the screenshots and looking at the real-life filming locations!
The grand finale of the tour is the Walk of Shame! Follow Cersei on her walk through the town and learn how the most memorable and demanding scene of season 5 was filmed! The tour ends at Ploče gate bridge, but don’t think it’s all over – if you want, you can join your tour guide and have your picture taken on the Iron Throne. Yes, you read that right – it’s a truly unique way to complete your Game of Thrones tour!
This tour is the one you want – two hours packed with entertainment and information on the filming of the world’s most popular TV show, led by a local guide accompanied by a dedicated GoT book with hi-res screenshots, in a small-group setting with like-minded travellers!
