The tour was fantastic! We had a blast with the others in our small group and Paul was such a great guide and full of knowledge about Wellington and all the movie goss :) highly recommend this tour. Naomi and Harley
Great!!! pity I should've get the full day tour which includes a tour to Rivendell.
Our tour guide Emma,was wonderful. Although our ship was late docking, Viator provided us with our own tour. We had an excellent time and Emma was very knowledgable and helpful. We would definitely use Viator again and would recommend them to our friends.
From pickup at the ship to the return trip the half day tour was full of facts and information from out knowledgeable tour guide. Visiting sites where the Lord of the Rings was filmed was amazing and our tour guide showed us film clips of the actual sites. Wetta Studios was also a very impressive place to visit.
A fun 1/2 day tour, pickup from cruise ship easy, tour guide very entertaining
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.
Great tour. Our guide Emma was very informative. Weta Caves was amazing. Highly recommend to any LOTR fans.
Great tour and tour guide. Really enjoyed the view from Mt. Victoria of bird-view of Wellington, film location of Lord of the Ring, and also the Weta Cave trip. Awesome.
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.
Great tour. Very interesting. Beautiful contryside. Outstanding guide.
AWESOME!!! Todd was a great guide. Loved every minute -- rain was the only downer.
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.
