We really enjoyed this tour. Ted is an excellent guide, charming, amusing with fun anecdotes, great local knowledge and was happy to tailor our tour to better suit our needs. The addition of the Weta Workshop tour was great preparation for our visit to the Gallipoli exhibition

If you're in any way shape or form a Lord of the Rings fan this tour is an absolute must. If you're not then you should probably take a long hard look in the mirror and figure out where your life went wrong. Locations, charming tour guide, and the downright brilliant Weta

I did the Weta Studio tour on my own and my guide recommended this movie tour to see LOTR sights. I spoke with Ted on the phone and had Kate as a guide. They are huge fans and have so much knowledge of the movies, back-stories, and of the cast and crew. Even questions we

Hi Lisa! Thanks so much for taking the time to write. We avoid using big buses because everyone enjoys being part of a small group so much more. And those movie clips do help. Kate is great. Being such a fan and experienced as a hobbit filming extra makes her perfect as a guide. Cheers!

To be honest, we were initially going to do most of this itinerary ourselves as I've been to Wellington before and THOUGHT I knew many of the stops. After quite a few days on the road we decided to just grab a tour. I'm SO glad we did! The guide, Ted was fantastic. He was
