Home to the famous Lord of the Rings movie and the award winning Weta Studio, Wellington is a place that is bustling with things to do, especially for a Lord of the Rings fan and an avid movie goer. With this tour, you can embark on a full or half day tour and explore the film sets all over Wellington city, including some of the iconic film locations from the Lord of the Rings trilogy. With the full day tour, walk the forests of Lord of the Rings and visit the beautiful Shire, Rivendell, Isengard, and the Great River Anduin. You will also be taken behind the scenes to Weta Studios to see how some of the award winning props and special effects for various movies were made, as well as get a chance to drop by their museum cave and souvenir shop. The cherry on top? An orc-sized, Lord of the Rings themed lunch will be served at the Scorch-O-Rama cafe. If you opt for the half day tour, you get a little taste of everything. This includes a quick tour of the city to see some famous film locations, and the theater where The Hobbit and The Return of the King were premiered, a short walking tour of the forests of Mount Victoria and “Greenbelt” (better known as the Outer Shire), and finally a tour of the Weta Studios, Museum and souvenir shop. This is the perfect tour for anyone who loves movies, and of course, the Lord of the Rings!
