We took the full day wine tour on our last day in New Zealand. A big thank you to our guide Laura, who took my wife and I on a great trip to some great wineries in the Martinborough area. Her choice of stops for morning tea and lunch were outstanding, places we would never found on our own. I had the best coffee in NZ. We learnt a great deal about the area, the wines, and about New Zealand in general.

We even modified the tour a bit to stop at a great chocolate shop and drive up to Mt Victoria for a great view of the city.

Thank you again Laura for a great day.

Thank William B

Having checked out what would interest a family of 50 somethings travelling with a limited mobility 80 something I thought this trip looked good and it paid off big time.

I had called ahead to check if the Lord of the Rings tour would be OK for limited mobility and being told not so good for wheel chairs we went for the city tour.

Our fabulous luck was that Ray was in the office when I called so knew we were interested in the film locations. As a result he put together a tour that covered the sites and included film locations and the terrific Weta Cave.

I cannot speak highly enough of this thoughtful, professional, friendly and knowledgeable company. Ray certainly knew everything about Wellington and answered all our questions about this that and the other thing that we passed. He gave us a great tour pointing out all the notable places and telling us fascinating stories.

If you come to Wellington for the first time then this tour is a fabulous way to introduce yourself. It is also the perfect way to get the most out of a short visit as you get to see so much. Not cheap but worth every single cent!

My wife and I had a lovely day visiting some of the filming sites for lord of the rings. Our guide (a woman whose name I'm ashamed I can't remember) was extremely knowledgeable and offered previously unknown insights into the entire process of making the films.

We went on the half day lord of the rings tour another thoroughly enjoyed it. Our guide was informative and good fun to chat alongwith being really knowledgeable about the sites. Overall we've now done several of the Lord of the rings tour through new Zealand and this was definitely one of the good ones would recommend to everyone whose a movie fan.

We did the whole day Extended edition Middle Earth and had a fantastic time. We were picked up from the city at 9 and dropped back at 5. Went to several filming locations in and around Wellington driven by our well informed tour guide, Laura. She answered all of our questions very well, including a lot of New Zealand oriented questions unrelated to LOTR. The filming locations were amazing to see, but just beware that there really aren't any obvious signs left that filming was done there, certainly not sets or props, etc as The filming crew/director intended to leave everything as they found it. Nonetheless, visit the locations with an informed guide who was able to point out the sites with movie stills to compare was perfect. On the extended trip we were able to see parts of the Lothlorien forest and additional shooting sites. The WETA cave was great for fans as well as anyone interested in film. Would highly recommend!
