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!
What a great tour! Great for LOTR fans, and for those who havent seen the movies can still appreciate the camera angles, attention to detail in the scenes, stories of the actors off screen adventures, and the genius of the Weta Workshop anyway. Its a lovely drive around the Wellington area and includes a beautiful lunch as well. Laura was good fun and a terrific guide. Very highly recommended!!
The guide was very passionate about LOTR. The tour was excellent.
Me and my 2 teenage sons did this tour and we all thought it was fantastic. Our guide Jack was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the tour... we went to some beautiful locations and lunch was great too(we also learnt that Christopher Lee is one of the coolest human beings on the planet!!!.....it's true :) ) Very enjoyable, we would do it all over again.
The tour was terrific. Our tour guide Paul was great fun and very knowledgeable (and drove sensibly!). The tour locations, lunch and whole itinerary were great. And we also learnt heaps about the local area which was a bonus. I would highly recommend this trip. It was also fun to spend the day with other Lord of the Rings fans and muck around taking photos.
Jack our tour guide was fantastic... Very knowledgeable in every thing Lord of the Rings.... Plus some!!!!
Fun tour! Personable tour guide. Enjoyed the behind-the-scenes movie stories and the Weta Studio tour. It ended up being a sunny day and lunch was delicious by the bay.
We had a really great time. Jack, our tour guide really knew his stuff. We had a few extra sites thrown in and a wonderful time at the Weta workshops. Recommend to all.
A great day out seeing the sites of Wellington featured in the LOTR. The weta studios was excellent and the guides are good fun!
