What a great experience! Absolutely loved it. Our lovely guide (Sorry, I'm terrible with names) was super knowledgeable and charismatic. I would love for her to pause instead of UM, though. She had been involved with the workshop for quite some years and you could tell she had a real passion for the things involved in the tour, and more. Thank you so much to Weta for making this a thing! I will be sure to tour the Auckland workshop, also, when I'm up there next.

An incredible workshop! The level of detail on everything is absurd. And our tour guide Sol was a fantastic guide - very knowledgeable and just as excited about everything as we were.

Very good. Staff were friendly and our tour guide knew his stuff. Gift shop was slightly expensive but it reflects the quality of work.

Great place to visit especially Hobbit/Lord of the rings fans see items actually used on set . Very informative guide lots of fun .

Easy to find location, heaps of parking and very good tour guide (i think her name was Lana)
