Complete King’s Landing Tour
(Dubrovnik + Trsteno Arboretum Tour)
Duration: around 5 hours
This extended Game of Thrones tour is designed for travelers that have more time at their disposal. Apart from King’s Landing locations in the Old Town of Dubrovnik, this tour introduces another point largely used in Season 3&4, the Trsteno Arboretum.
Although it also poses as another part of King’s Landing, this lovely Mediterranean park is probably most associated with the powerful family from the Reach, the Tyrells of the Highgarden, as this is where the iconic scenes involving Lady Margaery, SerLoras and their witty grandmother Lady Olenna Tyrell (aka ‘the Queen of Thorns’) take place. During this tour you will learn that the Tyrells were not the only characters that appeared in the wonderful settings of the Arboretum as you’ll recognize other scenes involving Tyrion, Tywin, Joffrey, Jaime, Brienne, Cersei, Oberyn, Bronn, Varys and Littlefinger.
Aside from seeing the places from the show, you will also have the chance to learn something about the picturesque ‘Tyrell’s garden’ which is a 15th-century estate that used to belong to a (now extinct) Dubrovnik aristocratic family.
This vast complex of terrace gardens that stretches over 70 acres was turned into a public park in 1948 and is now the biggest and oldest monument of garden architecture in Croatia. The Arboretum, which houses more than 450 species of diverse plant life, has retained its unique single-axis composition (composed of the summer manor, pavilion, chapel, aqueduct and fountain) evoking the renaissance ideal of the symbiosis of man and nature. On top of all that, the garden terraces offer magnificent panoramic views of the Adriatic sea and the nearby Elaphiti archipelago.
Find out why Lady Olenna Tyrell enjoys this garden that much!

Great guide, great day, great fun!
Great guide, great day, great fun! Tomislav is such a knowledgeable, animated guide. We had a great overview of Dubrovnik with a good balance of Game of Thrones sites and "inside stories" for the GOT junkies and fascinating non GOT information for the rest of us. It was particularly poignant to view the war museum with someone who was a child during that time - very balanced and personal but not a "downer" on the rest of the day. Itinerary adjusted to inside sites during brief bouts of rain. FABULOUS DAY,
