This was such a fun tour. Our guide, Ted, was knowledgeable and fun. If you want to experience Lord of the Rings up close, this is the tour for you. Learn things you did not know about the film. And visitng Weta Cave is terrific

Alice was fun and knowledgeable about LOTR. Interesting sites, props and funny pictures. Weta Cave was great with a lovely employee tour guide

I really enjoyed my 8 hour guided tour with Ted and felt greatly entertained throughout the day. Having said that, you should propably also be a bit of a passionate feinschmecker about the LOTR trivia in order to enjoy this to the max. It is very detailed and the inside knowledge they share is fantastic! I left my wife and kid in the city to do this one alone, which was a good idea. As they are not really fans of this universe, they would not have enjoyed it...

I only did the afternoon part of the tour which at $45 was great value and certainly a damned side cheaper than any of the other tour operators in the area. The guide Alice was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The time spent recreating scenes in the forests around Wellington was a bit of fun. I would certainly recommend upgrading your tour to include the Windows on the Workshop Tour at the Weta Cave as this was probably the highlight.

We booked this not knowing how our 19-month old would manage the full 8 hour trip but he was made to feel very welcome by Ted and Alice. We all had a great time, despite the wintry wet weather (tip: don't forget to wrap up warm), and were fascinated by the insider facts about LOTR, and all the various stories and anecdotes. The film clips that you see on board are great too for putting all the locations into context. We did the deluxe tour (up north in the morning, around the city in the afternoon) and thought it was very good value for money.
