with a genuine LotR movie extra and private guide
A small-group, personalised Tour of the main Lord of the Rings filming sites around Wellington, with an extra from the movies. I worked on the movies over a 4 year period, as a Rohan, Gondorian, Orc, Uruk-Hai, Elf, Easterling and in the Army of the Dead. (I am still involved in the movies here when possible; the most recent film I have worked on is Mortal Engines - due out Dec 2018. )
We will visit Mt Victoria (home of the "Get off the road!" scene), drive by Stone St Studios and go on a behind-the-scenes Weta Workshop tour (price inclusive).
I will meet you at your accommodation or cruise ship and we will firstly head to Mt Victoria to see where some of the earliest scenes for LotR were shot(including the famous "Get off the road!" scene). We will also go to Mt Victoria lookout with it's 360deg views of Wellington city and harbour.
We will drive by Stone St Studios and, time-permitting, possibly visit the Roxy Cinema (refurbished by Peter Jackson), before visiting the Weta Cave where you will go on a behind-the-scenes Workshop tour. After this we will have a quick stop for food at the famous Chocolate Fish Cafe, before I return you to town and/or your accommodation.
The order of the Tour may vary with availability of Workshop tours and time of day.
