Just a quick message to say what a great time i had on the LOTRs tour! I was in Wellington for 4 nights and the tour was definitely my favourite day! Thank you.

As an optional extra, purchase the Weta Cave Workshop Tour.  A Weta technician will guide you through a Weta Workshop display area, explaining processes for creating weapons, suits of armour, latex products and other film props.

Passengers on the standard Wellington Movie Tour will instead view the 20-minute behind-the-scenes video and have extra time to browse around the Weta Cave.
