My boyfriend & I took this tour on our last day in Dubrovnik, May 2014 - If you only have one day in the city, we would highly recommend doing this tour!
Ivana our guide was full of information - She had been an extra in the show, was a historian, and an avid fan of Game of Thrones - She really brought it all to life for us, as well as providing screen shots of the places that were filmed in the show, and linking the history of the city with plot lines in the show itself.
There are A LOT of steps in Dubrovnik - This tour was well paced despite the climbs up/down steps, and our guide made a point of resting frequently, finding shade while she spoke to us, and making sure we had water & refilled regularly, all while avoiding the swarms of tourists.
We paid extra for the tour of the Arboretum, which is where all the garden scenes for the show were filmed, and another couple joined us - It was well worth it - Ivana herself had a passionate interest in all things Game of Thrones & seemed just as excited as us to be there and experience the beauty - It was essentially like having a private tour
While the cost seems steep initially (approx. €100) we started on time at 10.15am, finished just before 1.30pm for the first half of the tour - and then around 4pm after the gardens - the cost included entrance to Fortress Lovrijenac (30kn/€4), The city walls (100kn/€13) & The Trsteno Arboretum (40kn/€5), as well as the transfer to the gardens outside of the city, and they offered to drop us off at our hotel on the way back.
Ivana was knowledgeable, polite, her English was impeccable, she was able to pace the tour depending on the participants needs (one lady had mobility issues) and it was an amazing tour overall
