Lord of the rings full day tour

I loved my tour! I am a fan of lord of the rings, learning about different film locations and how the camera angles happened was great. Our guide was fill of information and was able to answer many of our questions. We were lucky to be with a small group as we were out of season so I was quite personalized. The weta workshop tour was awesome. See all the props and the weight of some of the costumes surprised me.

Amazing Tour

If you‘re a fan of LOTR and find yourself in Wellington, this tour is an absolute must-do. From the moment we set foot on the tour bus, our guide, Nathan’s passion for all things Middle-earth was palpable. His knowledge of the films and behind-the-scenes anectodes, was nothing short of impressive. Throughout the tour, Nathan expertly navigated us through the breathtaking landscapes of the filming locations. The tour is completed with an immersive experience through the Weta workshop, where we got a firsthand look at the incredible craftsmanship that brought Middle earth to life. Overall, Nathan‘s entertaining story-telling kept us engaged throughout the day.
