Are you ready for a fantastic adventure in Wellington, New Zealand's capital and the home of Middle-earth? Visit some of the most amazing locations from the Lord of the Rings movies and the famous Weta Workshop where the films were made, with our experienced and highly knowledgeable guides with decades of experience between them. 

After picking you up from the Cruise Terminal or one of our several convenient Wellington City locations, you will start your journey by seeing the Embassy Cinema and learning about the extraordinary World Premieres of The Return of the King and An Unexpected Journey. Then, ascend to the Mt Victoria lookout, where you will enjoy a breathtaking view of the city and the harbour.

You will then descend into the forested slopes of the nearby Outer Shire, where our expert guides will explain the process of film making and entertain you with stories of how the Lord of the Rings movies were brought to life. You will follow in the footsteps of Frodo and the Hobbits as they began their quest to destroy the One Ring. You will see the places where they encountered mushrooms and Black Riders before the "get off the road" and flee to the Buckleberry Ferry. You will have the chance to recreate some of the most famous scenes from The Fellowship of the Ring and make your social media streams go crazy!

Next, you head to the Miramar Peninsula and the film-making Mecca of Wellywood. This is the home of the famous Weta Workshop. Here you will discover the secrets behind movie-making magic and learn how the props, costumes, weapons and creatures were brought to life by the talented artists at Weta. You will have the chance to take photos with some of the iconic characters from the middle-Earth movies and pick up a souvenir or two, if desired.

You will then enjoy a scenic coastal drive back to the City before being dropped of back at your pick-up location. This tour is a must-do for any middle-Earth fan short on time and anyone who wants a glimpse into how films are made or wants to make family and friends with an iconic photo.

Book your spot today and join us on this unforgettable journey. However, if you find that you are enjoying yourself on the day of your tour and you want to discover more of middle-Earth, an upgrade to the Full Day tour should be available. Speak to your guide for more information.
