Planning Your Visit

  • What should you know before you arrive in Westeros?

    Westeros is a continent located in the west of the known world. The majority of the continent, excluding the lands beyond the Wall, falls under the Seven Kingdoms and is ruled by the King of the Andals and the First Men. Although the continent is in open civil war, Queen Cersei currently sits on the Iron Throne in the capital city of King’s Landing.

    The name of the realm dates back to the time prior to the War of Conquest, during which seven independent kingdoms existed on the continent. The realm currently consists of nine distinct regions, the remaining two being formally established after the Targaryen conquest. Regardless, all nine provinces are subject to the rule of the Iron Throne.

  • Planning Your Trip to Westeros - King's Landing

    The nine regions of Westeros offer a diverse range of incredible experiences guaranteed to help every traveller love where they’re going. If you crave the excitement and nightlife of cities, visit King’s Landing and walk the streets, shop in the markets, and chant in the temples of this bustling capital city. Sail around the city and marvel at the formidable Red Keep where the Lannister family rules as well as the infamous Blackwater Bay. Make sure to check for neon liquid before lighting any candles.

  • Planning Your Trip to Westeros - Winterfell

    If you prefer a winter wonderland, grab your fur pelts and head north on the King’s Road to the largest region in Westeros. The Kingdom of the North is ruled by the strong and benevolent Stark family. Spend the night at Winterfell, where the castle is gearing up for the great battle against the Army of the Dead. Every man, woman, boy and girl is training to defend Westeros, so expect to learn some valuable new skills during your stay.

  • Dangers to Be Aware Of in Westeros

    Dragons: There are three dragons currently residing in Westeros. Do not attempt to touch or ride a dragon unless you are a Targaryen (or the Night King). If you see one overhead, and find yourself near delicious livestock, seek shelter immediately. If you hear the word, “drakarys” don’t bother running because you are already toasted.
    White Walkers: The Long Summer has ended, and winter is coming, which means the Army of the Dead is coming for you. Only dragonglass and fire kills White Walkers; so order your dragonglass from Dragonstone prior to your trip (not included in Prime shipping) and befriend a dragon upon arrival.

We had a great time on this tour. Our host, Dora, worked with GoT as a stand-in for Cersei, so she had tons of interesting stories to share about the cast and filming process. The tour was also surprisingly educational about the history of Dubrovnik and how the presence of GoT affected its culture and economy. I had tons of fun, learned some stuff, and would recommend this tour to anyone, even those who aren't die-hard GoT fans.

Josip was our tour guide. He did a fantastic job! He told stories about GOT and Dubrovnik with a lot of humor. It was a real pleasure to listen to his stories!

Josip was a great tour guide, very informative and fun. He had a lot of stories to tell, would highly recommend.

Learned a lot not only about the GOT but also the history of the Castle and it's surroundings.

It was fantastic. Really knowledgeable guide and great locations.
