We did the half day tour. We visited Mount Victoria, a film location trail nearby that didnt resemble the scenes much and then the Weta caves for the last 2 hours. All locations are open to the public to visit without being on a tour. For almost $300 for 2 adults and 2 children I didn't see the value and... More

A full day Lord of the Rings tour is an absolute delight for any people who are interested in the LOTR. A good tour of the Wellington city, visit to Weta Workshops and then a great lunch. In the afternoon, you travel north to a couple of filming sites. In places it is easy to envisage the filming locations. At... More

This is seriously a must do for LOTR fans or those curious about the making of the movies. It's incredible to see the exact location scenes were filmed in, and Jack our extremely knowledgeable tour guide was fantastic to go with, very friendly and had excellent customer service, lunch and afternoon tea were delicious, and Rivendell location holds some amazing...

Friendly staff with plenty of local knowledge on Wellington. Taken to a lookout with views of Wellington then off to a hill side around the corner where a few scenes of lord of the ring where filmed. Then off to the Weta Worksop to a behind the scenes tour which was good. The highlight for me was the memorabilia available... More

We took the full day tour and what a fabulous time we had! Just like every other review on here says, thus is a great tour with spectacular scenery and knowledgeable guides. Food was great also. Could not recommend highly enough. Thanks Craig for a great trip!

As part of our Hobbit Adventure we joined the Full day LOTR tour today and had a terrific day. It ticked all our boxes, relaxed, informative, beautiful scenery, yummy lunch and lots and lots of LOTR. Chewie, our guide was very knowledgeable and a wonderful LOTR nerd, the Weta Cave was amazing. In a word 'Awesome'

This day tour is a full on, LOTR experience. I had a great time! It was exciting to see the places where various movie scenes were shot and to hear the great stories and info our cheerful and personable guide, 'Chewy' had to tell us. This made the whole experience so much more interesting. As most of us were die... More

Nice tour that started with a drive to a scenic overlook of Wellington the on to the forest where some scenes from one of the movies were shot. We then went to the WETA studios for a personalized tour of the studio where a knowledgeable guide showed us many props from the movies.
