This epic full day experience visits the Glens of Antrim and the dramatic north coast. We take you to the cave where Melisandre gives birth to a dark spirit, Renly’s Camp in the Stormlands, the Iron Islands beach where Theon dedicated his faith to the Drowned God, Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, the mysterious Dark Hedges and the breathtaking Giant’s Causeway.
We carry Iron Born costumes, metal swords, shields and banners in the trunk of the coach which we offer to customers when the tour arrives at the location of Lordsport on Pyke island. Our guides were all extras in Game of Thrones® – Starks, Wildlings and one Iron Born! What is dead may never die!
My husband and I are huge Game of Thrones fans and this experience was amazing. Brian, our tour guide, was incredibly knowledgeable and full of energy. I could not recommend this tour more!
To help stop the spread of Covid-19, we’ve added new safety measures to all our tour experiences. These include:
– The guide will wear a face shield.
– The guide will use a voice amplifier when talking in outdoor locations, allowing customers to maintain a safe distance.
– Compulsory temperature checks before the tour.
– Compulsory wearing of face masks in the coach.
– Hand sanitiser when boarding and alighting from the coach.
– The coach, cloaks and swords are all deep cleaned using an MZYKA atomisation disinfection fogger machine.
– Anti-bacterial soap to wash hands with soap and water after wearing cloaks and holding swords.
With these safety precautions, we can all continue to enjoy the complete Game of Thrones Tours experience – cloaks, swords, banners, etc – that our customers know and love!
