Dubrovnik History And Game Of Thrones

If you know all about the Game of Thrones series, you will jump at this chance to explore King's Landing and other filming locations. And for those that also want to learn about the history of Dubrovnik and the Old Town, this combo tour has it all including incredible sightseeing opportunities!

Dubrovnik History and Game of Thrones Tour

When you only have one day in Dubrovnik it will be very difficult to choose on how you spend your time, seeking out the Game of Thrones filming locations or immersing yourself in the local Dubrovnik history. However, with this combo tour, you don't have to choose just one. Take advantage of the opportunity to learn everything you possibly can about this amazing medieval walled city. Game of Thrones fans won't miss any of the filming locations that a regular Game of Thrones tour would include, and in addition to this, everyone also will get a full history lesson as part of your day in Croatia, truly something for everyone.

After you meet up with your local and knowledgeable tour guide, who will be waiting for you just outside the cruise port gate, take a short transfer ride into the Old Town where you will begin your day in King's Landing, or Dubrovnik Old City.

You will visit various locations and make stops as your guide provides a wealth of information about the history of the area. Visit Onofrio's Fountain, the Franciscan Monastery, St. Blaise, Orlando's Column, the Memorial Room in Sponza Palace and Dubrovnik Cathedral, all combining history with the Game of Thrones stories from filming locations. You will also visit the Red Keep, Blackwater Bay, Walk Of Shame and more locations from the show. Your guide will have a diagram with pictures from actual scenes from the show so you can compare where you are standing and what you are viewing, enabling you to feel even more in touch with your favorite series.

At the end of the tour, your guide will take you to where you will get the chance to have a picture on an exact replica of the Iron Throne. What could be more fitting for a Dubrovnik Game of Thrones tour? Have some free time in the Old Town for more exploration and a chance to pick up a souvenir or two.

This tour concludes at the official Game of Thrones store in Old Town.

Please Note: Entrance fee to Lovrijenac Fortress is included.

About Shore Excursions Group
ABOUT US
Shore Excursions Group was created with one goal in mind: to provide exceptional travel experiences to cruise passengers in the ports they visit around the world. To accomplish this, we have compiled an exceptional array of tours delivered by local experts with decades of experience serving travelers and delivering excellent tours. Our owners and management team are comprised of seasoned travel industry executives who leverage their considerable experience to deliver memories of a lifetime.

We are experts in providing exceptional shore excursions. We understand that in today's fast paced world, vacations have become an increasingly important way to relax, reconnect with family and friends, and experience new and interesting places. With this in mind, we provide the highest quality tours by performing extensive research, and detailed reviews. While other companies also offer excursions, we strongly believe our expertise and approach set us apart. The large cruise lines sell shore excursions - typically in very large groups visiting high traffic sites. We focus on smaller groups visiting more interesting and authentic locations using more personalized local operators. While the cruise lines are experts in delivering cruises, we are experts in delivering shore excursions.

Our Approach
We believe quality service is not only highly valued by customers, but ultimately leads to better experiences and higher satisfaction. Unlike the cruise lines and other tour companies that rely almost entirely on websites, we encourage customers to call us. We want to invest our time answering your questions, providing input, and selecting the excursions that best meet your needs.

Our Tours
Our goal is to provide customers a wide array of exciting, appealing, and enriching tours. For those customers who prefer to travel in smaller groups with more personalized service, we offer a wide variety of small group tours around the world. These tours generally range in size from 2-12 people compared to larger tours which can number up to 50 people. While exploring the destinations and ports on this website, feel free to search for these "Small Group Tours". For those customers interested in private tours, we offer many outstanding excursions that allow you to travel with your party alone and, in many cases, to fully customize your tour. Search for "Private Tours" if you are interested in this experience. Our "Scenic" tours provide up close and personal access to some of the most spectacular natural environments on Earth from majestic glaciers in Alaska to spectacular reefs in the Caribbean. Our "Cultural" tours allow customers to experience local customs, entertainment and culinary delights ranging from tribal dances in Alaska to an outstanding local meal in Santorini, Greece. Our "Active" tours offer a multitude of exciting and adventurous ways to experience our destinations. Our customers can kayak the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, hike to a spectacular waterfall in Hawaii, or bicycle through quaint villages in France. Our "City" tours allow travelers to see the highlights of great cities around the world with unique insights provided by our expert tour guides.

Our People
In our experience, exceptional travel experiences are almost always delivered by exceptional people. With that in mind, we utilize a comprehensive approach to select and employ the leading tour guides and tour providers around the globe. We hold our people to very high standards which we measure by our comprehensive Quality Control process and, most importantly, by our customer feedback, which we will actively seek from each of our customers.
