It was a romantic cruise. Essentially around Lokrum Island in the bay of Dubrovnik. The sunset was spectacular. The wooden boat, a Karaka, was a replica of historical ships used for trading. It has sails unfurled in the photos, but not on the cruise, only diesel powered. The food was a seafood buffet was extensive and sufficient. Dessert was also scrumptious. The price tag was, compared with restaurant food in Dubrovnik on the high side. The staff went the extra mile to contact us. Overall an enjoyable evening.

Mario took us to the shooting locations, discussed interesting aspects of the production of the show, and shared some gossip about the show's actors. He also included a nice touch of Dubrovnik's history to make the tour more meaningful. Personally, I loved his engaging and friendly style. Highly recommend!

Mario was a great guide! Funny, professional, and gave a well-rounded tour about Game of Thrones and how it fit into the wider picture of European history and the impact it had on Dubrovnik.

Great tour from Mario, informative and funny - thanks for being flexible and for answering all my burning questions!

Interesting tour. The tour guide adapted the tour to what we were interested in which was really great.
