Before you come to Dubrovnik for your Game of Thrones tour, why not learn a few basic words of Croatian? It will help you understand the locals better and they would appreciate it. When you visit a foreign country it’s common courtesy to understand a small amount of the language that is spoken in that country. Although most Croatians understand English very well, it is very considerate when you try to adapt to their language. Trust us, it is very much appreciated!

Even if you speak absolutely no Croatian, it’s worth learning a few words before you go. If you make the effort, even just to say thank you or goodbye in the local language, you might just make someone’s day! Croatian is a relatively easy language to learn and there are so many outlets these days in which to learn before you go. Below are just a few words, phrases and sentences that may help you no matter where you are in Croatia. We can’t wait to hear you speak our language!

Knowing just of few of these keywords and phrases will earn you a lot of points with the locals. You may even begin to enjoy learning the language to better understand the culture.

We think learning just a few words in any language of a country you are visiting is a good thing. When foreigners visit your homeland, don’t you like it better when they understand your language? You appreciate the effort and even find yourself wanting to learn more about that person and their language. It’s a great way to unite different cultures. We can all use some unity in this world.

When you Tour the Game of Thrones, we can communicate to you in English but you may just catch us saying a few things in Croatian as well. It is beneficial to you to learn a few words. It will truly enhance your vacation experience in Dubrovnik. When you tour with us, we show you not just places that the Game of Thrones was filmed, but we are showing you our culture and explain to you why this television show filmed here. Croatia is a magical place so get ready to explore!

Great GOT tour for non-fans

Tom is just great. Our group of 8 were captivated by him throughout our tour. Despite never having seen an episode of Game of Thrones we still decided to book this tour because of the great reviews. Dubrovnik was a complete surprise to us and and we loved it, thanks to his expertise! Tom made the history of the city come alive. On top of all that, he has sparked the interest in the GOT and we all vowed to watch at least one episode.
