We were picked up from our hotel in Wellington and met up with our guide, who took us to a range of locations in Wellington and around Wellington. Grant, our guide, knew a lot of interesting facts about the making of the movie and had a... More

Highly recommend this tour. Our driver, Alf, was so passionate about the places, history and people of Wellington. There were plenty of stops for viewing and photos. We learnt so much and had fun along the way.

The locations are nothing but amazing, the guide was fantastic. had lots and lots of fun, discovering Wellington through the eyes of a very passionate guide. When I got home, I watched the LODR DVDs straight away.

Seeing all those filming locations was amazing and the Weta tour was really insightful. Middle-Earth themed lunch was delicious! Plus we got heaps of tips about what else there was to do and see...

This was a cool tour. I did a whole day. The first part was at Weta and they showed some of the special effects that they did for LOTR and Hobbit as well as other movies such as Avatar. The second part, we got to see other places where Peter Jackson shot the movies. Rivendell was my favorite!

It was a good tour but a but expensive for what you get. We did the hobbit village as well and it was way better value for money.

Me and my partner went on the full day tour that is offered. Our tour guide Laura - 'Laura of the rings' was a great guide and had outstanding knowledge and experience of the area and movies. The day started with a bit of sightseeing in Wellington and went to the first film location from the fellowship. There were opportunities... More
