The day starts with a journey through the outer shire, spending an hour walking through Wellington's greenbelt tracking the many scenes filmed there (including 'get off the road' and 'race to the ferry'). Take a drive through the South Coast to Wellywood, home to the actors whilst filming and the studios. After morning tea at the legendary Chocolate Fish Cafe (not included), drive north of Wellington to spend time amongst forests, mountains and rivers. The famous picnic lunch will be in Rivendell before you cross the swingbridge for a short native bush walk.
The tour includes a free souvenir map, elf ears for photos and a hobbit like storytelling guide for the day. Come explore Middle Earth for yourself.

Excellent tour especially for the film "geek". The tour guide was excellent and entertained us the whole way. We stopped at so many filming locations plus Weta Cave.
Great lunch as well. Totally recommended !

It's great that you not only get to see the lord of the rings locations but also a lot of Wellington itself. We had a great guide who knew everything there is to know about the movies and was very passionate about them. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and have nothing to complain about. I furthermore would highly recommend this tour to anyone going to Wellington. It's definitely worth the money.
