Description

10:00AM You will meet Your personal English-speaking driver at the Lobby of Your Hotel for Your transfer to the city center. There You will meet with Your private guide for Your sightseeing tour.

On this tour, You will see the Dubrovnik locations used in the hit TV series ‘Game of Thrones’. You will climb the city walls, picturing the bloody battles from the TV series, and visit Lovrijenac Fortress to learn about the evil exploits of King Joffrey. Follow in the footsteps of Arya Stark and hear insider gossip galore about the popular series. See the sights of King’s Landing, the capital of the Seven Kingdoms.

Your day will start with visiting the Arboretum early in the morning. This magical botanical garden doubles up as the beautiful gardens of King’s landing and is one of the major filming locations of the Game of Thrones TV show. These are the gardens where main protagonists weave their plots and exchange secrets at King's Landing. Next step is return to the city, on Pile gate for tour of the city. Several scenes have been filmed at Pile Bay. This is where the Lannisters bid farewell to Myrcella and that is also where Sansa Stark and Shae watch the ships before Lord Baelish discusses escape plans with Sansa at the end of the jetty. One of the most disturbing scenes from season two also occurred at Pile Bay, the killing of Robert Baratheon’s bastards.

The base of Minceta Tower was used as the exterior of House of Undying in the town of Qarth. It is the place where Daenerys Targaryen walks around trying to find the entrance into the House of Undying looking for her stolen dragons in season two.

Fort Lovrijenac doubles as the Red Keep in King’s Landing, the capital of the Seven Kingdoms. Lots of the scenes are filmed at this Fort including the tournament thrown in honor of King Joffrey’s name day in season two. In old town roofs with orange terracotta tiles, impressive stone and wild seas, it seemed perfect posing as King's Landing with high-rising cliffs and a stunning ancient city wall overlooking the Adriatic sea (ie. Blackwater Bay in the series).

The outer walls of Dubrovnik look as if they were built for this TV show. After visiting Lovrijenac fortress and city tour (including the walls) You will continue towards Lokrum with a public boat. The Game of Thrones production team used the island of Lokrum as a stand-in for the city of Qarth near the Jade Sea, which is visited by Daenerys Targaryen in season two. Some of the garden scenes were filmed in the botanical gardens on Lokrum and in the Former Benedictine monastery.

Thanks to our Travel Advisor, Cate Caruso, we had the pleasure of working with an amazing team at Leonidas Travel Ltd. during our trip to Montenegro and Croatia in April/May 2018. Every personal driver, guide, and skipper was beyond friendly, knowledgeable, and very customer oriented. Throughout our stay we were well cared for - and we learned so much about the beautiful places we visited. The hand offs from one locale to the next were seamless - and recommendations were perfect. We highly recommend Leonidas Travel - and are so very thankful to Cate for partnering with such a wonderful and caring team of people!!

Leonidas Travel worked effortlessly with our travel agent to help plan the most incredible honeymoon for me and my husband. I knew very little about Croatia before we decided to honeymoon there and now I am telling everyone it should be on the shortlist of "places to visit" for everyone... and I think Leonidas is to thank in large part. They helped put together a itinerary full of unique and educational culinary experiences and awe inspiring excursions. Every person we came into contact through via Leonidas, from hotel staff to tour providers to transportation and everything in between. Our entire trip was well planned, executed and communicated. It made our experience extremely enjoyable and we always felt well taken care of

Travel review Leonidas

We had a terrific experience with Leonidas. They worked with us along with our Calgary travel agent and they were excellent. We had one hiccup on our trip and the team went over the top to have things sorted very very quickly and brilliantly. The service was excellent as were recommendations for tours, dining experiences and accomodations. Someone from the team is immediate to respond to emails or calls during the course of the vacation. Would use them again in an instant!!
