Brilliant for film buffs, these guys are incredible. Very good tour, lots of interesting things to see. From the moment you step off the minibus you are transported through a word of creativity and excellence, the level of detail and creativity is mind boggling. If you are a Lord of the Rings or Hobbit fan look nowhere else for film memorabilia, having been to several outlets in NZ this has far the best collection and nearly all created here, from amazing live action statues of all the characters to armour and swords all exquisitly detailed. The workshop tour shows how things are made from casting to final finish, it also has examples of film sets created and the level of detail again beggars belief. There is even a lifesize Orc statue to be selfied with, that and the 3 lifesize trolls from the Hobbit out the front of the Giftshop. They also have memorabilia and creations from a raft of other film, warcraft, Avatar to name a couple. They are also introducing outher tours, The Thunderbirds tour was also just being launched.
It was great everything we were hoping for. Great tour guide and value for money. Thankyou
Great trip to Weta - staff were great and helpful and our tour guides on the bus and behind the scenes were awesome.
We enjoyed everything, our tour driver was great and the tour guide at the Weta workshop was excellent. A great experience
If you are even a tiny bit interested in the movies that weta workshop are involved in I highly recommend this tour it was awesome and we loved it.
Hard to believe there are such talented people in NZ. Awesome tour ,totally worth going
We enjoyed the video on weta and their other companies also their digital room
This was well organised, was on time and very professional yet friendly. We really enjoyed our tour.
Really great trip, our tour leader was very informative and really friendly, thank you Michael! I am not even a Lord of the Rings fan but found it really interesting, the girl at the studio who showed us around was great too, would thoroughly recommend it, thanks
This again had easy to follow instructions and a great guide was waiting to greet us. Loved the Weta Cave tour so interesting and the people were very friendly and informative we had a great day. thanks Lynette
Excellent tour. Informative driver. All ran to schedule. Driver gave helpful advice about a further tour and even dropped me off so I wouldn't have so far to walk to my next destination . Weta cave and workshop were fantastic...saw all sorts of characters and weapons etc from a wide variety of movies...thrilling.
From the pick up in Central Wellington to the tour to the return trip, my family had the most fantastic experience. The knowledge of all the people the met, driver included, made it fascinating and memorable. A huge thank you to the team for the ease of booking and the experience.
Great experience on the tour with a very knowledgeable and entertaining guide. The pick up and ride to and from the weta cave was super easy, informative and fun. Thanks for a great experience
A really great little tour. I think it's true to say that Weta Cave is still a new baby as a tourist attraction, but it's growing up wonderfully!
A must see place for all Lord of Rings Fans. But we were amazing by the sheer number of other films this little Film Company from NZ has been involved in. The advances in film technology they have pioneered and developed is amazing.
Our bus driver was fab giving us lots of information about the geographical area around the studios and our tour guide at the cave was a technican with real hands on knowledge. All round great tour. Thank you
This tour is well worth doing. It gives one a great insight.
Would totally recommend.
We'd been to Te Papa and seen the WW1 display and it was great to see where they had been made. Also grandkids had seen some of the movies, so seeing the characters was wonderful.
This was well worth the money ...very good value! did not realise half the stuff we were told. .take a lot for granted when watching movies. So proud to be a Kiwi!
The pick up / drop off from i-Site Wellington to and from Weta Cave was excellent and we had a great driver. The Weta Cave documentary was amazing - learnt a lot about early days and the number of films they have been involved in. We had an excellent tour guide around the workshop and were able to handle a number of items. Amazing tour and would thoroughly recommend.
We had an absolutely fantastic time at the weta caves tour. Everyone was really helpful, and our guide was very informative and interesting.
The guide was very informative, so nobody had to ask questions. This was well worth seeing and have told other friends to do the tour
