Itinerary

When does my tour start? This tour has a set departure time of 8:15 am or 1:30 pm depending on your ship's time of arrival. When do I return to port after my tour/excursion? The tour is 4 hours in length so you will be returned in plenty of time for your cruise ship departure. All tour times are based on Shore time (i.e. local time, - not ship time)

This half day tour brings out the best locations in Wellington City and is the best way to see Wellington’s Lord of the Ring locations with a knowledgeable specialist guide. Around the city the tour takes in Courtenay Place and the Embassy Movie theatre where the world premiere of some of the movies, including the Hobbit have been held.

Then it up to Mt Victoria for some magnificent views of the city and harbour, on the drive down a stop will be made at ‘Green Belt’ a forest location where several of the movie scenes were shot. It is then off to ‘Wellywood’ the Wellington film studios and post production facilities, including the Weta Workshop.

You will visit the brand new ‘Windows into Workshop’ exhibition. This is a guided tour of the physical prop-making and makeup side of the studio. 

Basic Itinerary:

- Depart from the Port

- Arrive at the Lord of the Rings set 

- Spend approximately 2.5 Hours at the Lord of the Rings Set
