Wellington Movie Tour (including Weta Cave Workshop Tour option)
- Duration: 240 Minutes (approx.)
- Product code: WMT
As part of our film location tour, we go for a walk in the trees where the “Hobbiton Woods” was all filmed. This includes where the very first day of filming Lord of the Rings was completed on October 11, 1999.
We will show you where the production studios are situated and give you some idea as to what is happening inside. Another big highlight for this tour is our 70-minute visit to the Weta Cave. The shop/museum opened by special fx company Weta Workshop displays many props and miniatures from the films they have been involved in over the years. You will also have the chance to enjoy their popular behind-the-scenes video before making any purchases if you choose.
Our standard tour will allow you to enjoy the Weta behind-the-scenes video. Those on our Wellington Movie Tour plus+ will replace the video with the Weta Cave Workshop Tour.Please note a moderate to good level of fitness is recommended for this tour as we will be walking up and down bush tracks. The tracks are slippery in places so we recommend passengers wear suitable footwear as they feel necessary.
NOTE: Our tours do require a minimum of 2 passengers for departure. If this minimum is not met, passengers will be contacted the day of departure using your provided details and alternative dates offered or cancellation accepted. If you are in Wellington for a few days, especially during the quieter winter and shoulder periods, we STRONGLY suggest not leaving your chosen booking day until your last day in Wellington.
