Lord of the Rings - Half Day Tour

Envelope yourself in the magic of Lord of the Rings!

Highlights

  • Fully guided half day tour
  • Visit a variety of exciting locations
  • See the prop-making and make up studios

Join the expert guides at Wellington Rover Tours for a half day LOTR extravaganza, bringing together the best locations in Wellington City, remote film locations and amazing visual feast at Weta.

The first part of your day will be an exploration of the city. See the Embassy Theatre where the world premieres of LOTR and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey were held, venture up Mt Victoria to soak up breathtaking views of the city, then on to the Green Belt to walk through the forest and stand right where the LOTR actors did while filming those famous scenes.

Part two of your tour encompasses the best that SPFX has to offer. Visit Wellywood and the Weta Cave, where you will take in the Windows into Workshop exhibition. A guided tour of the prop-making and make up studios and a short film about the digital executions will give you all you need to know about production. You’ll then have time to wander the mini-museum and gift shop before being transported back to the city.

For LOTR enthusiasts with a limited schedule, this is a brilliant way to get the best insights in a short time frame.

Well worth the time and money

We had booked for the half day tour . We got a very cheerful, witty and well informed Tour Guide Ray R Meadows. The bus was comfortable, pickup outside our hotel and the trip was great. Ray would take care of everything specially useful as the weather was rainy that day. The trip to Victoria Mountain followed by Miramar and finally the icing on the cake Weta Studio was brilliant. If you don’t have time to travel to the original LORs locations, this tour is for you...you get a sense of some locations and the studio visit takes care of the rest.
