Met at the cruise terminal with no problem. Really enjoyable and interesting tour with an enthusiastic guide. In a group that was a fraction of the cost and size of the one organised by the cruise line we were visiting Wellington with.

We were greeted by very friendly guide named Mike, although it was a rainy morning his enthusiam for the subject of the Lord of the rings tour was great. Being in a small group was also good, as at each site visited we could gather around Mike as he showed us vision on his ipad of the location as it was in the movie. There was also no other crowds at any of the locations. We enjoyed the morning tea supplied and fresh muffins. I would recommend this tour to anyone else visiting Wellington, as you got to see some lovely parks and a trip to the top of wellington's lookout, great views.

We had a very knowledgeable and an excellent personality. The tour itself was just amazing, it gives you a behind the scenes look at how creative ideas made the movie. Planning on doing Hobbitown and South New Zealand LOTR tours in the near future.

Very good tour guide. I was a little disappointed that the sites used were far from what was depicted in the movie, but that is not the tour's fault at all. Overall a nice and relaxing tour that highlights scenes and places where LOTR was filmed on North Island.

If you are a fan of Lord of the Rings, this is the best tour for you. We were taken to different scence to expose the locations of the movie and how they were used for the movie. We were also told some interesting stories on movie stars.

Our tour guide was GREAT! He was really into the film, the locations, the camera tricks, information galore! Our 4 hour tour lasted 5.5 hours because he was so excited which we didn't mind at all. Unfortunately, I don't remember his name but he is married to a Japanese woman.
