Wellington Lord of the Rings Walking Tour Excursion Reviews
BE CAREFUL OF THIS TOUR! Royal Caribbean's tour page showed people photographing Hobbit homes. The ad said that guests would be taken to film locations. What we got was a 2 mile walk in muck and mud of a public forest park. No Hobbit homes. We were taken to the backstage lot called The Cave where the film was made, but no tour! We could visit the sales area of Hobbit items, but no tour. Others from the ship paid for a taxi, paid the tour price and got a full stage lot tour. We were left holding the bag!
Good tour of filming sites with views of the city from a lookout. Good knowledge of the filming process/activities shown by the guides who were drawing on personal experience. Would have liked a more extensive look into the workings of the Weta Cave. Like most cruise company organised tours, perhaps a little expensive for what is delivered.
