The first stop is at a location from season six where Arya falls in the water after being stabbed. You will then head off to the caves where Red Priestess Melisandre of Asshai gave birth to her murderous shadow assassin. Remember that the night is dark and full of terrors.
A crucial part of any trip to Northern Ireland is to see the UNESCOlisted Giants Causeway. Although it hasnt been featured in Game of Thrones, the spectacular site is a must see, and you'll have roughly 1.5 hours to explore.
Following this youll have time for a quick photo stop at Dunluce Castle, the 17th century ruins that were used as the exterior of the House of Greyjoy on the show.

Your journey continues with a visit to the camp of Renly Baratheon of Storms End, and gives you the chance to cross the famous Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge.

    Tour guide, Andrew, was wonderful! Enjoyed the tour, but would have enjoyed seeing the quarry more than the Carnlough harbor.

    This tour was a perfect blend wit, inside info on Game of Thrones, the locations (of course), and the natural beauty of the Antrim Coast. Tour guide Sharlene and driver Seamus were a perfect team.

    Knowledgeable staff and excellent driver- jam packed with stops which enabled us to see a lot but not a lot of time at each stop. We did feel a little rushed. Having so many people on a large bus didn’t help. Lunch was passable. But it was a good tour for the price.

    This tour was great! The driver was a great driver, thank god because some of the roads were narrow, felt safe. The guy doing the talking was very informative. He knew a lot about the show and all the places we stopped at. It is a long day but it was fun.

    A nice tour that GoT fans must go, those gossips shared by our guide was just something I was eager for.
    The weather was bad when we arrived the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, so we stayed in the cafe rather than got on the bridge. But then drivers and guides from other tours came to talk to us, and they were the extra in GoT and shared a lot of funny trivia and stupid gossips with us, it was quite an experience.
    When we arrived the Dark Hedge, props were prepared so that we could dress / disguise ourselves as Stark and took photos, it was wonderful!
