The Game of Thrones Tour, Dubrovnik, Croatia

let me show you around. : D

Hi Everyone, 🙂
These are the photos from Day 2 of our trip in Dubrovnik Croatia. We did the Game of thrones Tour. We are not the real fans because we have not watched the series but still did the tour because you know..why not. 🙂 It was the most amazing day of our trip. During the first half of the day we did the tour and during the second half we did sunset kayaking. Honestly, both were magical in their own rights.The GOT Tour made us see the gorgeous locations of the old town and the prettiest hidden alleys that we might have missed out ourselves. And the second half was the sunset kayaking tour. We started at around 5pm and were sailing on the ocean, catching the waves, and just being in the middle of nowhere. There were no sounds except the sounds of the waves. We got to close to seeing the gorgeous neon crimson sun go down. Fitness wise, it was quite tasking because you are literally rowing the boat for 3 hours sometimes with the waves and sometimes against it. You may opt for a smaller tour but our whole group wanted to do the longer one. So we did and I would do it all over again. We reached the bank around 8 pm when it got a little dark and the big ships has started showing up. Finished off the day with a bunch of lovely people. Had some champagne. Headed back to the hotel and ordered in the dinner. I hope you like the photos. I have one more post from Croatia to share with you all. I would do that soon. 🙂

PS : You can book the tours at the old town or from your hotel itself.

meet our guide, nicola 🙂

some prisoner’s scene was shot here. A 5 minute scene took some 15 hours to shoot because of the water and slippery rocks at the bottom

Pile Gate in Dubrovnik. They literally closed the whole area to shoot..even from the top. They shotthe riot scene in The Game of Thrones Season 2.And it’s one of the busiest areas of the old town. The locals were not happy. 😛  (Rector’s palace)

    I am a total GOT fan and so your pictures, I feel, are oh so magical!! I can totally recognize the places and what was shot where. And you got to sit on the Iron Throne! And it’s all so picturesque and beautiful. On the risk of sounding greedy, can’t wait for you to travel again so that we get some more pretty pictures like these.
    P.S.- The pictures of you and Sir together are still the cutest.

    • Rati says:

      sohela, can you tell where can i watch GOT. I dont think it is on netflix. I would love to now that I have seen the actual locations. 🙂 haha! I still have more posts coming up sohela. So hang in there. I love posting on fauxpas myself. 🙂 thank you 🙂

      • Daman says:

        Hi you can watch it on Hotstar.
        Can you give an idea how many days are ideal for a trip to Croatia and estimated budget

        • Sanjeev says:

          Hi Daman,

          Although we covered only Dubrovnik, your ideal itinerary should be – Dubrovnik (4 days), Montenegro (2 days), Split (2 days). You can cover some other towns near split also if you have time. Remember that Montenegro is a different country from Croatia.

          Dubrovnik was very expensive, especially the restaurants in the old town. A single meal can cost from 4k- 5k INR. There’s not much shopping in Dubrovnik (please carry swim suits, shorts, sandals etc beforehand as it would be costly to buy them there) so that is a relief. Most of the tours, you can do on your own and no need for a guide. Since you would like to stay near the Old Town, the hotels in the area are costly too. Try booking in advance and see what deals you can find. The two big components of cost are accommodation and food. We normally choose Fine Hotel & Resorts (FHR) properties through my American Express travel booking so they are costly. However, you have lots of options if you go through booking sites.

        Hi Rati. U can watch GoT on Hotstar. ?Amazing pics.. I’m so jealous.. hehe

      • Sohela says:

        Ma’am, you could watch the entire series on Hotstar but I would suggest waiting for another week. Let the 7th season get over then watch it at your pace. Or if you start now you will want to rush through it so you are caught up till season 7 episode 6 so that you can watch the finale of season 7 on the 28th. So once that is done you can watch the entire series slowly and by the time season 8 airs you could also finish reading the books.
        P.S. the GOT fan in me could not help but give you all this information.

    That last pic of food is making me hungry! Love all the pictures and I so wanna go there someday! I hope soon. Rati mam we need a post on how do you manage to look so good even when you travel!

    • Rati says:

      i hope you do get to go there soon mansi. Thank you so much for the compliment. But esp for this trip, I was so unprepared because I was way too busy with work before going. This dress and hat I literally bought from croatia and then kind of put it together with the accessories i had. 😀 But most trips, I do plan. I’d put together an outfit and basic shoes and bags that i keep mixing and matching. I feel you always have to make a bit of effort while travelling because those are the those you look back and see so you know… 🙂

    lovely pics…..god bless…..

  10. Madhur says:

    I love all the pics. Not a GOT fan but those scenic water pics & little alleys are so beautiful. I have seen all those tiny & adorable European alley scenes in movies, and I have always wanted to go there. And pic titled ‘ These little lamps ‘ somehow reminds of Harry potter’s diagon alley. 😀

  11. aruna says:

    am so so so jealous. just the most favourite show of mine EVER..:) but thanks for bringing them to us..pretty pics Ms Queen on the Iron Throne!!!!

  12. Reena says:

    Are those slides comfortable to walk in for long distances? Thinking of buying them.

  13. Sindhu says:

    Beautiful pictures! Loved the way you put together your outfits and accessories. Shopping goals… Yes, entire Europe is one that. You’ve to walk walk and keep walking. From my past few visits to Europe, even I’ve learnt that heels are a big no no except for special dinner or indoor /on site shoot only. I carry only one pair of heels to wear in the evenings and rest of the time it’ll be either sneakers or flats.

  14. Malu Krishnan says:

    Amaaaaazing pics!! I am a huuuuuuuge GoT fan and you guys gave me major travel inspiration. Hopefully I save enough to visit here sometime!

    Would you please post the details of the striped top and denim shorts, too?

    On a different note, I love how you keep your shoes stylish, even when you are traveling/sighseeing without wearing 4-inch heels all the time. So many fashion bloggers were impossibly high heels with outfits, and it’s definitely not possible while traveling. I think you’re unique in that aspect. Would you consider doing a post of what shoes you carry while traveling and how you decide?
