Enjoyed this trip very much, a superb day out if your time in Auckland is limited and you want to see as many things as possible in a short time. The picnic lunch was lovely, very good quality which is not always the case on tours!.
Good mixture of outdoor and indoor with the Weta workshop visit and the outdoor locations. Would recommend it to fans of the film series, or anybody who is in Aucland for a couple of days and would like to see the nice surrounding scenery.
This tour is well organized, thoughtfully presented, not hurried and FUN!!
Our guide not only presented the movie locations but told many related anecdotal stories as well as general information about the toured areas. Very worthwhile!!
Great tour. Chewie, our guide, was very knowledgable and entertaining. Saw many great LOTR sites, as well as great scenery. I would recommend the full day you, much more to see.
Excellent Tour! Worth doing the full day tour as you go to several major location! Also Leslie was a great tour guide :
We had a fabulous day in and around Wellington. Jack was such a knowledgeable and amusing guide resulting in a great day for all.
Excellent tour guide. Excellent knowledge of the movies and history
We loved every minute of it. The weather was wonderful. Our tour guide was hilarious, energetic, enthusiastic, well informed. Came home and immediately bought the extended versions of the trilogy. It is a must tour for LOTR fans. The full day tour was well worth the time and price.
Jack the tour guide makes this trip what it is. You can buy a book telling you the locations, but it is the stories behind it provided by Jack that makes this tour worth going on.
Excellent tour guide Jack who was very passionate and knowledgable about Lord of the Rings. I thoroughly enjoyed tour but maybe it would only get a 4 star rating if you weren't a Lord of the Rings fan
This tour is superb! Our tour guide Chewie was very informative. The views at some of the stops were amazing. Would definitely recommend this tour :)
Our tour guide Jack knew everything Lord of the Rings related! He was really informative and funny, we also had the good luck to meet some of the team from Weta at the Rivendell site and as our guide knew them they told us stories too!
Really great day!
It was great! Our tour-guide, Jack, was super informative and friendly. He made really good lame jokes too. And I liked that it all felt really informal, not so much like an official tour but hanging out with friends all excited about the same thing - Lord of the Rings. Definitely one of the highlights of my trip.
This tour was great. The crew were very friendly and helpful. The first location is was supposed to be self snorkeling, but one of the crew jumped in the water with me and one other girl. He pointed out many things I wouldn't have known and brought some up to touch. Made it a fantastic day!
I am a pretty hardcore LotR fan and I really enjoyed this tour. I learned a lot and you get to see multiple locations. I would even go on that tour again. It's a nice tour even if you haven't seen the movies. Good meal! A lot of photo oportunities. Make sure your guide is waiting for you if you plan to do a lot of shopping at the Weta Cave. ;)
Emma did an excellent job of informing and entertaining us during the fascinating tour of both the LOTR settings and the city and environs of Wellington. She helped our tour group gel and then enabled us to have fun together. She explained some of the processes of film-making, helped us to know a bit more about Peter Jackson and some of the LOTR cast, and through in extra info about various places we passed in Wellington. The lunch was fine, the drive was comfortable, and the logistics all worked well. I'd say it's a must for anyone who goes to Wellington.
What an amazing tour! The guide was so friendly and informative and we saw so much. The lunch was great too-a great chance to sit down and meet new people from all over the world!
