We visited Wellington in July and ended up having Mike as our guide for a full day tour of the city. As it was only my wife and I who had signed up, Mike custom tailored the itinerary for us. We thoroughly enjoyed the day and had a great experience visiting a number of different sights. I highly recommend Flat... More

We did the extended tour, and boy was it worth it. Our guide Jack, who also happens to be a founder of the NZ chapter of the Tolkien Society, was chock full of knowledge about the different sites, and even managed to impress a selfprofessed fanatic on the subject. Through nine hours of touring we were thoroughly satisfied with our... More

My sister and I had an amazing time! Our guide, Nathan, was really fun and very knowledgeable. It was just the three of us, but I felt like he went above and beyond to make sure we had an amazing time. He could tell I was a big fan and I really loved that he gave me the chance to... More

We booked the extended LOTR tour after reading all of the excellent reviews, and couldn't have been more pleased. Our guide, "Laura of the Rings", had a great depth and breadth of LOTR and general Wellington/NZ knowledge that she was eager to share. Getting to visit all of the film locations (River Anduin, Rivendell, Gardens of Isenguard, Lothlorien, Shire) and... More

Prebooked tour in Wellington during New Zealand cruise on Celebrity. Connections to guide and timing of tour were perfect. There were only 4 of us, and we got to spend significant time asking questions, taking photos and enjoying the locations. Mount Victoria boasts several scenes in the woods; wear comfortable shoes as the path is uneven and at times steep.... More

Took the half day tour with a friend this week and had such a great time! Our tour guide Paul was so fun and friendly and his knowledge of the movies and all things to do with them, was incredible. Even during the drives we were entertained with trivia and facts, and we got loads of great photos throughout the... More

Great day. Taken to film locations inaccessible to the general public. We had found some other sites further north by ourselves but heaps of interesting additional facts were provided by Laura of the Rings that really added value. Even between sites Laura provide stories and information about LOR, Peter Jackson, Weta cave, production of the film, the casting process, impacts... More

We chose Flat Earth for our Lord of the Rings tour in Wellington. The tour was tailor-made to suit our family of 4, and not be part of the herd on the larger tour organised by the cruise ship. Scott provided all our options and prices promptly, including what happened if the ship was late or couldn't make it in... More

Half day (afternoon) Lord of the Rings Tour, booked mainly for my LOTR obsessed teenage son. We both had a great day with our guide Laura. The little bits of trivia were an added bonus to the beautiful scenery we saw on location. I decided to go with Flat Earth after receiving a super quick (less than 30mins) response to... More
