Everything about this trip was great. Our guide Mike was incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He had a wealth of information to help us relate the scenery we were seeing to its part in the films. We had great fun hiding in the hobbit hole and wearing swords and cloaks in Rivendell for some great pictures. Lunch at Scorchorama was very tasty and the end of the trip finished nicely with coffee and cakes. The Weta cave tour was also very good. Overall, great value for money and a great day out. Ask for Mike and you won't be disappointed.
It was the first day of our 2 week New Zealand tour, and only full day in Wellington. I thought we could see,learn and do everything related to lotr in Wellington and have a good look around the city, wasnt mistaken. Our guide was obviously very experienced, he showed and explained all the locations and told really cool stories. He was helpful, attentive and very funny! To all lotr fans: we had an amazing time, dont hesitate go for it! Totally worth the money and time. Id do it again if i had the chance, thanks for the tour!
Our tour was nicknamed Laura of the Rings and it was very appropriate. We had an amazing tour guide, Laura, who definitely had a passion for the books and movies. She was able to share so much information about the filming and we had a ton of fun scouting out the film locations and doing some scene reenactments! My 15 year old son said this was his favorite tour and we had even visited Hobbiton!
Very good value for money. We had a great guide with a lot of passion and knowledge of the Lord of the Rings and the movies in general, it made a huge difference to the tour. Request someone who is a Lotr fan for the best experience.
Loved this tour! Great value, fun and informed guide. Highly recommended.
Tour guide Jack was excellent. Loved all of his insider knowledge about LOTR. The day couldn't have been more perfect. Lunch was at such a fun place and tasted really great.
Weta Workshop was amazing, tour sites were well organized and interesting.
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.
