We also provide Iron Born costumes, banners, swords and shields for when the tour arrives in 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!
