Brilliant experience, our tour guide was very knowledgeable as he works hands on for the company, telling us great little stories. Well worth a visit if you like films.

Good tour around the Weta Workshop. We got to see how they do stuff and prepare for movies. The people there are so talented. Great tour.

Very interesting. Explains how films and accessories are made. Not only for Lord of the Rings fans. Worth its price.

As a huge fan of the Lord of the Rings, I had to go there..... A bit disappointed, as all they do is try to take all your money, very expensive, but still worthy to pay for the guided tour.

No photos are allowed inside this Aladdin's Cave of movie props. You get to hold props from loads of movies and get to learn loads about how they are made and how they are used on set.

We loved gaining insight to the behind-the-scenes of some of our favourite flicks. Our tour guide was awesome.

This tour was brilliant. The guide was full of interesting stories and insight for the making of some of our favourite films.

Interesting tour but not worth the money. Quite short and not insightful in terms of the actual working process (can't be seen), more like walking through a small gallery.

Super team, go there if you like the Lord of the Rings - just expensive.

Was really cool seeing how the props for films were made. The tour guide was full of information and showed a mix of films, not just Lord of the Rings which was refreshing.
