Once my friend and I found the GoT Karaka we expected lots of drama however we didn’t sense any enthusiasm from the organizers welcoming us on board. We also felt a little confused when the cruise started and there was no announcement as to what was going on. People started trying on the GoT costumes and posing for pictures / again we were left wondering if there would be an announcement or we should just go. Finally the lady started talking over the mic and our official tour started. While our guide gave some good information - I found the karaka part of the tour very disorganized. My friend and I quickly scurried to try on our GoT costumes, however the “king” helping kept ignoring me and seemed annoyed when we persistently asked to be dressed up in the same Daenerys costume (they had 2 of them so we were willing to wait) Once we got to the city walls and were split into two groups, the tour went by much more smoothly. We continued with the same tour guide from the boat and she was quite cheerful and informative. Overall I would have to give it 3 stars only because the karaka part of it (the part I expected to be the most fun!) was disorganized and needs to be improved.
As HUGE Game of Thrones fans, we had a really fun time on the tour, from the Karaka Cruise to walking through Old Town. The best part was trying on the costumes, which led to a super fun photo sash. We got some really fun tidbits from our guide about cool production and talent/character stories. The only things I think need a little work are the specialty drinks on board too sweet and the Iron Throne photo ops. The latter we had to come back after the tour to take the pic, which was fine, but I would have preferred to have done it during the tour. Otherwise, super great experience!
les enfants ont adoré et nous aussi. Départ à 18h. 45 mn sur le bateau de Daenerys depuis le nouveau port de Dubronvik vers le vieux port. Nous étions 35 visiteurs. D'habitude, ils en ont 70.
Pendant la croisière, photos déguisés avec des vêtements de GOT.
Arrivés à quai, séparation du groupe en 2 : 1 guide chacun. Notre guide avait des photos des scènes de GOT pour nous montrer les lieux de tournages. Plus d'1h30 de visite. Cela nous a permis d'avoir un avant gout de la ville avant la visite que nous projetions de faire le lendemain.
Pour finir photo sur le trone de fer dans un magasin de souvenirs GOT. PS : il y a aussi un trone de fer sur l'ile de Lokrum.
The boat tour was a little boring, and I had a little trouble understanding the tour guide. The single drink was a nice touch, but an option to purchase additional drinks would have been appreciated. The scenery on the boat tour was wonderful! Highly recommend a boat tour around the coast and the islands.
There was a little confusion transitioning from the boat tour to the walking tour. The walking tour almost left us, and the guides on the boats didn't seem sure about where to send us once we disembarked. The walking tour guide was really funny and cool. The walking tour was very detailed and interesting. Recommend one or the other, maybe not both.
