We did the extended tour, and boy was it worth it. Our guide Jack, who also happens to be a founder of the NZ chapter of the Tolkien Society, was chock full of knowledge about the different sites, and even managed to impress a selfprofessed fanatic on the subject. Through nine hours of touring we were thoroughly satisfied with our Lord of the Rings experience. Would recommend to all fans of the films, and the books aswell. Worth every penny!

My sister and I had an amazing time! Our guide, Nathan, was really fun and very knowledgeable. It was just the three of us, but I felt like he went above and beyond to make sure we had an amazing time. He could tell I was a big fan and I really loved that he gave me the chance to recreate some of my favorite scenes from the movie. A great tour!!

We booked the extended LOTR tour after reading all of the excellent reviews, and couldn't have been more pleased. Our guide, "Laura of the Rings", had a great depth and breadth of LOTR and general Wellington/NZ knowledge that she was eager to share. Getting to visit all of the film locations (River Anduin, Rivendell, Gardens of Isenguard, Lothlorien, Shire) and the Weta Cave was one of the highlights of our two-week NZ trip. There was a mom and son also on our same tour, and while their knowledge of LOTR was much less than ours, Laura was able to cater to both. The included lunch was filling and delicious, and even between the sites, Laura was able to tell us fun facts and answer any questions. I can't recommend this tour highly enough - every LOTR fan should do it!

Prebooked tour in Wellington during New Zealand cruise on Celebrity. Connections to guide and timing of tour were perfect. There were only 4 of us, and we got to spend significant time asking questions, taking photos and enjoying the locations. Mount Victoria boasts several scenes in the woods; wear comfortable shoes as the path is uneven and at times steep. Views of Wellington are worth the tour alone! We opted to be dropped off in the CBD and walked back to the ship via the Te Papa Museum and waterfront. Beautiful day.

Took the half day tour with a friend this week and had such a great time! Our tour guide Paul was so fun and friendly and his knowledge of the movies and all things to do with them, was incredible. Even during the drives we were entertained with trivia and facts, and we got loads of great photos throughout the day. If you're a die hard fan of the movies, this trip is an absolute must :)
