The all-day LoTR tour was fun and good value for $190 (compared to Hobbiton, which is $75 for about an hour) and includes lunch and afternoon tea/coffee. We visited locations where they shot scenes from Rivendell, Minas Tirith/Helm's Deep (the same quarry), the River Anduin, and Gardens of Isengard, and then toured Weta Workshop and the Weta Cave / souvenir...

Just arrived back from my half day Wind Farm and Seal Colony tour, which was fantastic. My guide Paul was great fun, friendly and enthusiastic. I was the only person on this tour, which would normally have made me a bit uncomfortable (in terms of making conversation etc) but it wasn't an issue in the slightest as Paul was really... More

This tour was the highlight of our trip to Wellington. Our guide, Jack, was incredibly knowledgeable- about Wellington, LotR and geeky things in general. The tour started on Mt Victoria, looking at various filming locations, then we travelled out to Weta studios, where we got to tour around the workshop, watch a film about Weta's involvement in various projects, and...

I can't say enough good things about this tour. We did the full day Lord of the Rings tour with Emma as our guide. She was very informative, friendly and enthusiastic - I feel like she did a great job setting the tone for the whole group! It was a great group of people, full of other Lord of the... More

This was our favourite part of our trip and the absolute highlight of our honeymoon!!! We chose to do the full day Lord of the Rings tour. For this first half, we were part of a group of 12, including our guide Emma who was fantastic! The views from Mount Victoria were incredible and it was so interesting to see... More

Took a 1/2 day Lord of the Rings tour. Emma was great and Matt at the Weta Caves was so much fun - really enjoys his job!

I truly believed that I was triple lucky in this tour. 1st luck: I was the only person booked for the tour so I got the private tour service but paid the normal price. I thoroughly enjoyed the Wellington city tour and Nathan is the man! He is the best guide I have ever met. I was pleasantly surprised when... More

the experienced guides took us in 9 seater all wheel drive buses along the ridge top to see the wind turbines, we were amazed at how big they are and the noise, well we did not hear any thing out of the ordinary, after the wind farm we made our way down the ridge to the coast line to see... More

This tour stands for a great day! Matt - who did the Weta Cave Workshop tour - is hilarious and our Rover guide Emma is the sweetest person - thanks for this (maybe life-changing) experience!

Had booked the Seal Colony & Wind Farm Tour online but due to a mixup I was not able to take the morning one chosen. However the tour company honoured the booking and offered an afternoon tour. To my surprise it turned out to be just me and the guide, Paul. (Their brochure does say no minimum numbers!). Paul was... More
