We show you VFX breakdowns on tablets to reveal how each scene was brought to life. We have Stark cloaks, swords and banners for everybody as part of the tour at no extra cost.

Andrew was an amazing guide! It was so cool seeing the filming sites and talking about the behind the scenes actions and how it was all filmed! Was not expecting an intense hike but it was well worth it!

Went on the winterfell trek today with Andrew as our guide. It was great getting to see the locations where filming took place but what made it was Andrew’s enthusiasm, stories and patter. Would definitely recommend and had an amazing day.
