What You Can Expect
Our guide was Emma and she was very interesting and informative. I very much enjoyed this tour. As we drove through Wellington to get to our first stop, Emma gave us interesting info about the city. We visited the area where the first part of the Lord of the Rings was filmed and Emma talked about how special effects were filmed and created. Very informative. We visited the studios where not only the Lord of the Rings special effects were created, but also where other special effects, props and studios are used for filming. An interesting tour.
A must for any LotRs and Hobbit fans. Great value for money.
fantastic knowledgeable friendly staff, beautiful locations and a great price. Highly recommended!
This was a great tour. Nathan our guide was perfect in every way. I posted a much more detailed review but the site asked me to login again and I lost it so this time I will be brief!
It was awesome! Would love to go back!
Wear appropriate footwear for short trek up Mt. Victoria.
Cameras are not allowed inside the Weta studio itself.
Absolutely loved every minute of this tour. Weta studios was fantastic.
Our guide, Laura, was very knowledgeable and a true LOTR fan. She had lots of inside information about the filming of the movies and has inspiredf me to come back home and watch them all over again so that I can see the places we visited. Thank you for a fabulous day.
Great to see some of the places where fixing occurred. The Weta Workshop tour was also fabulous. Craig was really knowledgeable, friendly and a expert guide.
This is one of the best tours I ever have done. Craig our guide was really well informed and loved his subject. The staff at Weta Studios who truly love their job were amazing, a very talented group.
