This tour was amazing!
This tour was perfect and was so interesting handled with great professionally
I enjoyed the tour. The tour guide was knowledgeable and the WETA workshop amazing.
We changed from a half day to the full day as there was so much more to see in the afternoon. The WETA studios visit was brilliant, and our guide Laura knew so much about the films, Peter Jackson, the other cast members and the places we visited, however be prepared to see sites where filming took place, that now seem so out of sync since filming has long since ceased. We did not see the Shire, which is elsewhere near Auckland and of course no Orcs.
Very informative and a must for Tolkien fans.
The Wetta tour was fantastic. And to see where some of the Lord of the Rings was filmed was also really amazing. Great for any movie fan, especially for the Lord of the Rings fans.
This was our favorite shore excursion out of three, taken while cruising from Australia to New Zealand last month. Grant was our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and informative. He took us on a scenic drive around the area. Wellington is a beautiful town located on the hills with stunning views. We visited Weta Cave where we saw some of the original props for LOTR, Hobbit and other movies. Took pictures with some of the movie characters. Grant also took us to a couple of locations where some of the scenes for the LOTR were filmed. Finally, we stopped on the top of mt Victoria with stunning 360 degree views of the area before returning to the ship. Well worth the money!
Best tour I have been on. If you like the Lord of the Rings it is must. If you love the Lord of the Rings it is the reason to go to New Zealand. You visit a couple of the filming sites, plus get a tour of Wellington. It wasn't only the background and history of the Lord of the Rings, which was AWESOME but the history and background of the people like Peter Jackson and others that made the films possible. Where they found extras to be in the movies, and sound effects who would have guessed 10,000 New Zealand cricket fans sound like 10,000 orcs. You don't see orcs in costume, but you see full size orcs, and trolls around the site. I would take the tour again, to get stuff I might have missed the first time.
Had a fabulous time!
We all enjoyed this trip being LOTR fans. Our guide was great as he knew the scenes inside out having been in the film.
Weta was an added bonus pity it was not a bit more hands on but great day
