Great tour even if you aren't a Lord of the Rings fan as the lookout was great. We had mist covering Wellington the first time we went to the lookout so we went back later when the fog had lifted. Great tour guide and really enjoyed the Weta workshop.

I enjoyed this tour. It was divided up into a trip into the woods behind Wellington with pictures and descriptions of what happened in the Lord of The Rings. The other part was taken by a trip to the animation/film effects studios, I found it a real insight into the cinema industry in New Zealand, but also an eye opener because a lot of work is done internationally on very well known films.
