Hire A Tour Guide On Vacation

Is it worth it to hire a tour guide on vacation?


If you have never gone on vacation and hired a private tour guide, you may be missing out on some truly amazing experiences. Maybe you read guidebooks, consult the Internet and read reviews about where to go. That’s a great start but shouldn’t be your determining factors on what to see when you get where you are going. There are large group tours for those who want to sightsee and develop friendships and there are those knowledgeable, private tours that help you sort through the must-sees and the maybes. These are the people that live where you are going and can help you see a place like you’ve never seen before.

On your vacation, every minute counts. So plan your trip wisely. If you have decided to vacation in Croatia, there are some interesting tours you can take, depending on what you want to see and where you want to go. Of course, if you are reading this article, you are interested in taking a tour of the Game of Thrones and you want to visit all the filming locations that made this show so epic. We get it, we are fans too. And that’s what makes us more qualified than most.

At Tour the Game of Thrones, we are tour guides who live and work in and around Dubrovnik. We obviously know the ins and outs of the city and its surroundings. This is great so that you can not only see where the Game of Thrones was filmed but you will learn some history about the city as well. But what we offer is so much more. We are fans of the amazing show and so when you tour the places where it was filmed, you are gaining knowledge from fans that are geeked out as you are! We think that really says something.

There are plenty of people who will approach you on the streets telling you that you can pay them to get you into a museum or attraction with no waiting in line. These are not certified guides and it will end up costing you more money than it is worth. If you are going to use a private guide, like Tour the Game of Thrones, plan ahead and talk via email with a guide before you even get to your destination. They are a wealth of knowledge and will help you get the most from your visit.

All in all, a certified private guide will be worth the money. When you take into consideration the investment you make in your vacation, adding a few hundred dollars to complete the experience is a small price to pay. Having the ability to ask questions as you go and engage in a dialog with the guide makes it all worthwhile. Tour guides arrange reservations so you don’t have to wait in most lines to enter popular attractions.

When you come to Dubrovnik, Tour the Game of Thrones and get the most out of your Croatian vacation.


Tailor made GOT tour of Dubrovnik

We were met at the cruise port and the van was very comfortable. Tom was a fantastic guide and tailored a tour for us especially, taking all our requests (e.g. trying local wines and oysters) and wishes into account and creating a custom tour for us. He was also happy to take photos and videos for us so we would all be included (there were 6 in the group!). He was so friendly and easy to chat to and knew SO much about the history of Dubrovnik and also Game of Thrones trivia and locations about the city.
