Tell us about yourself and your travel experience.
I was lucky to be exposed to traveling as a child, since my parents love travel. I studied abroad in France during undergrad and since then I’ve been obsessed with travel. Some of the most noteworthy of my trips have been Vietnam and Cambodia, India, Greece, hiking the Inca Trail in Peru and visiting Syria before the war.
Where did you go on your tour and how long was it?
The Game of Thrones tour in Dubrovnik, Croatia was approximately 3 hours long.
What tour company did you use and why?
I chose Dubrovnik Day Tours. It is locally operated and a small company that offers private tours for groups. They are reasonably priced and very friendly and easy to work with.
Why did you choose a tour instead of traveling independently?
I didn’t know enough about where all the specific Game of Thrones scenes had been filmed and I thought a tour of this nature would be fun, especially since I was with a group.
