We had Laura as our guide and she was excellent. She provided us with a lot of behind the scenes information in relation to the LOTR Movies. We got to see several places were the movie scenes were filmed. We had morning tea near the place that was used for Rivendell. We also got a great view of the city from Mt Victoria.

First and foremost you need to do this tour before going to Hobbiton.

We got picked up from the Hotel by a lovely gentleman called Jack Machiela.
We picked up another couple and headed off on our amazing tour.
At each stop, we were told about the filming location having pictures and video clips showing us from the movies. Jack would then add stories about the filming, then back in the van he would tell fun stories about behind the scenes
At one stop and no I am not going to tell you which one. Jack will produce a sword to show you, it is lovely but go with it, have fun with what happens next.
Lunch was amazing, you will not need dinner that night.
Jack's passion for the stories and movies is amazing.
Towards the end you end up at the Wetta workshop (Wetta cave) it was amazing.
After that Jack was suppose to take us back to the hotel, but he offered to take us to one more filming location. we said yes, at which stage he rang his wife to say he was going to be late as the phone was ringing, he saying to us she is getting use to this phone call. He did say that he did meet his wife on the flat earth tours.

Definitely worth every cent and more.
Thank you Jack it was amazing.
We will be back.

We signed up for a full day tour and ended up having a private tour for the two of us. "Laura of the Rings" was an amazing guide, she knew lots of cool stories about the cast and filming and was lots of fun to spend the day with. We got to see lots of exciting sites like Lothlorian, had lunch at a nice restaurant, and got to visit Weta Workshop. I highly recommend this tour, it was definitely a highlight of our recent honeymoon.

We had a fantastic half day city tour on Saturday. Our tour guide, Laura, was exceptional - her knowledge of the city and all the places we visited was very informative. Laura was very friendly and chatted throughout the tour on a mixture of subjects. Morning coffee and a cake included was a nice touch. Would thoroughly recommend this tour - very good value. Thank you. Christine & Graham

Our guide, Lesley, was incredibly well informed and took us to a great number of filming locations. Her knowledge was astounding and the quality of the accommodations (lunch spot, van) were tremendous.
