Game of Thrones Tourism
Since the filming in Dubrovnik only started from the Season 2 in 2011 I realized that the “GoT effect” could potentially be measured only from that year onward. According to the official figures by the Croatian Tourist Board, the overall growth of tourist arrivals didn’t… Continue reading

TOURISTS ARE COMING…
I always wondered how many Dubrovnik visitors actually decided to come here primarily because of the Game of Thrones. In past two years I toured The Game of Thrones locations with many travelers that hailed from all over the world, even from… Continue reading
Great touring company: flexible and professional
We were visiting Dubrovnik for a day on the cruise ship P&O Aurora and whilst it had been quite a while since we last visited we wanted to do something a bit different than just walk around the walls. After looking at all the various options available and considering a few tour companies we decided that this company would offer a great tour and our pre tour correspondence with them helped to convince us that we'd made a correct decision. even when we had fairly late notice that our cruise itinerary had changed which meant arriving 3 days earlier than originally planned they were able to accomodate this change. We also changed our meeting place as the ship was tendering us in to the Old Harbour so our guide, Karmen, met us there instead of us needing to walk through to the Pile Gate. There were 10 of us in our tour group, some familiar with GoT and others less so but the tour was fascinating to all the people in our group regardless of their familiarity with the story. Karmen was excellent and took her time in showing us around Dubrovnik with, of course, a special emphasis on the places where particular scenes from GoT were filmed and showing us the contrast between the actual site and the TV version. We enjoyed a good walk around the City and never felt crowded as Karmen mainly kept us away from the very busy centre (there were about 3 other large cruise ships in that day) and after we'd finished our tour here we caught the ferry across to Lokrum Island where there was more GoT things including the opportunity to sit on the Iron Throne. All of us were absolutely delighted with our tour here and would strongly recommend this company to anyone visiting Dubrovnik.
