Overview of your Wellington tour:

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 Avatar 2 - released Dec 2022. ) 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 Wētā Workshop tour (price inclusive). In the afternoon we will head up to the Hutt Valley where we will visit Rivendell and Isengard.

Your Wellington tour itinerary

I will meet you at your accommodation or cruise ship and we will first 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 its 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 Wētā 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 we head out to the Hutt Valley for Rivendell and Isengard locations. The order of the Tour may vary with the availability of Workshop tours.
