Brilliant kayaking experience on the Dubrovnik coast! Our guide was very patient and lovely. He explained everything so well and made even the nervous kayakers feel at ease. We got a bag full of fruit and water which was appreciated! They have barrels to take your bags and photos in etc, so you don’t have to worry about your stuff getting wet. My favourite part was kayaking close to Lokrum island and then stopping at the hidden beach cave. We had a swim there and it was insanely beautiful! It can only be reached by kayak or boat so this was a special treat. Turquoise and warm waters. I just wish we could have had more time there! Definitely recommend this activity, you’ll have so much fun.

10/10 would recommend. Doris was an incredible tour guide/photographer/comedian, she was so knowledgeable about Dubrovniks history and Game of Thrones and beautifully intertwined them both throughout the tour. The tour brought us to the filming sites for Blackwater bay, the red keep and the shame steps as well as the gardens of Qarth finishing with the Iron throne. Though the tour is 3 hours, if you get the boat to Lokrum to see the gardens and throne, you can actually make a full day out of the Island of Lokrum with lovely Restaurants, beautiful gardens and really nice swimming spots. 100% worth a go if you’re into GoT and want to see/learn more about Dubrovnik!

Tour was amazing and the tour guide, Doris, was very friendly, informative and helpful. We included Lokrum in our tour where you sit on the only throne in Dubrovik made by HBO. Would definitely recommend doing the full tour. Lots of opportunities for photos. You have to pay extra for the boat trip to Lokrum and entrance to the Fort - if you buy a ticket to the city walls, or purchase a Dubrovnik card, you get the fort entrance included. We did the city walls the day before and kept our ticket for entrance to the fort during this tour. Take sea shoes to Lokrum and the beach!!!

If you love GOT then this is the tour for you! our tour guide Doris was amazing & very knowledgeable. she told us many facts about GOT & Dubrovnik alike. It was very interesting to hear how the scenes were filmed, how it went down with the local people & how the economy was affected due to filming. The places we visited were amazing & you could actually invisage the scene's being shot! we moved onto Lokrum Island, what a magical place to see full of wonder & beauty! From start to finish so worth it. Thanks for an excellent experience Doris!

Our guide was very friendly and helpful. We were also told some interesting insight into the history and caves of Dubrovnik.
