What people are saying about County Down

As a Game of Thrones fan, I cannot express how incredible this experience was! Our tour guide was not only incredibly knowledgeable about the sights we were seeing but also made the entire experience feel incredibly immersive and fun. The Stark cloaks were also a really fun touch and actually quite warm. Plenty of opportunities to take photos in all these incredible locations but be warned that the pace needed to keep up and see everything is a brisk walk so be prepared to get in your steps! Even without the extra bonus of the filming locations, seeing the architecture and scenic landscapes makes it more than worth it

From start to finish lot of laughs. I loved Lar. He was so funny! I appreciated his knowledge of the movies, and enthusiasm for making the tour upbeat and energetic. Lar did a great job interacting with not only the quiet people in our group but also the more energetic talkative people like myself. He has a tremendous amount of patience needless to say. Hahaha I’d almost consider taking the tour again to socialize further with him the next visit to Dublin.

Great experience, super cool guide who was always up for a joke. And since he was an extra, he had a lot to say about the shooting. The weather cooperated, the long bus ride was an opportunity to see a big make-off from Got.

Spectacular experience, a fantastic adventure to places that make you feel part of history. Lar's, the guide, has solid knowledge and is undoubtedly a plus that adds value to the experience

Great tour. I loved the visual media at each stop along the way. And of course, Lar is a fantastic tour guide!
