Tour The Game of Thrones Tour Guide

The ins and outs of hiring a tour guide for your next trip


Planning the perfect vacation involves making a lot of choices. You can make your travel a lot easier by outsourcing it to a tour group. Take out the hassle of having to pinpoint exactly where you will go, what you will see and what your schedule will be like. When you come to Dubrovnik and Tour the Game of Thrones, we take the guesswork out of all your sightseeing options. We plan it for you.

If you still aren’t sure, read on to decide if this is the best approach for you.

  1. Tour guides can offer a safer experience, as was as a way to help you navigate. In some countries where no one speaks much English, this makes ordering food and finding places much easier.
  2. You get your own translator who can help you communicate both in terms of language and cultural practices. With their assistance, you will be able to avoid getting into sticky situations.
  3. With a great guide, you will have an easier time learning about complex or overwhelming attractions.
  4. You have a certain level of comfort with a guided tour. This applies to accommodations as well as how you feel. If you are with a tour guide, at least you can embrace the experience with others there to support you.
  5. If you don’t have a ton of time to see the sights, using a tour guide will help you get the most out of your trip. For more control over your schedule, hire a private tour guide instead of going with a pre-set tour.

Think about what kind of experience you want from your trip before you jump into searching for a guided tour. Then, if you decide to use a tour company or guide touring your trip, make sure you are using someone legitimate. Check out reviews for the service on their website and third party sites. Confirm the cost, including taxes and fees. You want to get your money’s worth so don’t be afraid to ask for an exact breakdown of the planned schedule of activities.

Guided tours have their pros and cons, but you don’t have to be a camera-toting tourist or a loner in a strange land. Choose the experience that sounds good to you, and will make you feel comfortable wherever you may roam. At Tour the Game of Thrones, we are a company that specializes in showing you where all the amazing scenes of the beloved television show were shot but we also know Croatia. We are happy to take you on a customized tour that will give you facts and information about the show but also show you this amazing country and all it has to offer.

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.
