Great tour.. well worth the drive round the bays, and visiting the hobbit's wood. Weta was definately a highlight.

Thank you Phil, for the best-ever experience. With all the uncertainty currently being felt by the tourism industry and the wider community, we found ourselves being the only ones on the tour. As I am (slowly) recovering from surgery and use crutches, we were able to do the tour at my pace. Both my daughter and I were kept entertained by Phil’s enthusiasm, knowledge and sense of humour. This tour has certainly made us want for more. Rest assured we will be doing the full day tour on our next visit to New Zealand This tour was the highlight of our Trip.

Informative. Fun. Would do it again. When out on location, it was great because the guide had a tablet and could show us the exact scene in the movie.

So cool to see the forest location for many of the Lord of the Rings filming sites. Guide showed photos from the movies at each location. The WETA tour was incredible. This is the special effects company for many movies including LOTR.
