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.

We took a half day Lord Of The Rings tour and Seal Colony tour. Both were very cool, had a lot of fun. Guides very friendly and active, told us a lot of interesting stuff. Really loved wind turbines farm on the second tour, it looks amazing.

I have to admit, when I saw the price and that it was a full day tour, I was a bit skeptical... but, thank you, Craig (our guide), I was blown away. I found the brochure in our i-Site here in Wanganui where I'm staying and decided to give it a try. There weren't really many people in town or... More

We selected the half day tour as we had visited Rivendell on a previous holiday and regretted not booking the whole day tour. Laura was an excellent guide and had lots of amusing stories to tell about the LOTR Movies and stars. Weta Workshop tour and video gave us a great insight to behind the scenes in the movies.

We did the full day Lord of the Rings tour. If you are a fan this is not to miss and to see the local area is beautiful. Even our non Lord of the ring fan enjoyed the day.

I did the full day Lord of the Rings trip and loved it. I wouldn't recommend the full day if you aren't a fan of the films, but that should be pretty obvious anyway. Also, don't go if you are expecting to see huge film sets, etc. This is a tour of Wellington and the surrounding areas. They take you... More
