What to expect
This half day tour brings out the best locations in Wellington City and is the best way to see Wellington’s Lord of the Ring locations. Around the city the tour takes in Courtenay Place and the Embassy Movie theatre where they had the world premier of LOTR: Return of the King and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.  Then it up to Mt Victoria for some magnificent views of the city and harbour, on the drive down a stop will be made at ‘Green Belt’ a forest location where you will walk through the forest to where several of the movie scenes were shot. It is then off to ‘Wellywood’ the Wellington film studios and post production facilities, including the Weta Workshop. You will visit the brand new ‘Windows into Workshop’ exhibition. This is a guided tour of the physical prop-making and makeup side of the Weta studio. There will be time to see the mini-museum & souvenir shop before being returned to the City or back to the Ship.

LOTR Fans Must Do
Mar 2019 • Couples
Really enjoyed this tour as I am a big movie fan and of course a fan of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. Our guide was Laura (of the RIngs!) and I highly recommend her. Very knowledgeable and shared lots of inside stories of the filming. Wish we could have spent more time at the Weta Workshop and wish we could have seen more of Peter Jackson's studio - but still worth the trip. Nice to have a small group and also enjoyed eating at one of the favorite restaurants where the cast dined.

Thanks for the great review. It's awesome to hear that you enjoyed yourself on this tour. The guides for this tour are really passionate and knowledgeable when it comes to their work and it can really add to the experience. I'll be sure to pass on your kind words to Laura. And yes, it really is a must do for any Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit fans, this and of course the Hobbiton tour in Matamata. Thanks again for the awesome review and I hope you get to visit New Zealand again sometime soon!
