Die-hard fans of Game Of Thrones will soon have the chance to visit the locations featured in the epic TV series, thanks to a U.S. travel company. Bosses at California firm Viator are launching summer (13) tours in the walled city of Dubrovnik, Croatia; and Belfast, Northern Ireland, which serve as two settings for the fictional locations in Game of Thrones. The three-hour walking tour of Dubrovnik will include a stop at the 11th century Lovrijenac Fortress, where two crucial battle scenes were shot, while the nine-hour Belfast trek will explore the Dark Hedges, where teen actress Maisie Williams' character Arya Stark reinvented herself as a boy. A spokesperson for Viator promises that all guides will be well versed in the popular series, based on the fantasy novels by George R. R. Martin.
