joined a 1/2 day tour. its very interesting even though i have not watched the movie before. But a pity that i could not fully enjoy it as im travelling with a toddler. thus my hub finished the tour alone while i have to leave the room as my 2yr old son is a bit too active to participate. recommend not to bring young kids . visited some places thats we could have drove ourselves thus a bit time wasting. prefer to have the whole tour covering the making of movies and exploring lord of the ring scenes. nevertheless, it was still a good experience.
This is an absolute trip everyone should attend. The tour guy, Grant, was very friendly and 100% full of knowlegge of the scenes. We were surprised about how Weta workshop has been working and what they had achieved in film products and computer special effects. We do recommend people to join this trip.
I always love a trip on a cable car and the Wellington funicular was a great way to get up to the Gardens. It's only a short, five minute journey and is very reasonably priced. The views from the top are stunning so it's well worth the trip. #wintergetaway
[Face Travel] Amazing Wellington, beyond our expectations!
probably only need a beam of light to fall in love with a city, and Wellington has given us a lot of regret!
It's like Dunedin, but it's more refined! The beautiful bay is full of buildings, and people can sing and dance at any time on the street. At night, sipping beer everywhere, I cant help but wonder if its the capital!
There are very beautiful sunsets here, such as Mt.Victoria, which can be reached by bus 20!
There are also beautiful bays and cable cars here. In Wellington, the best way is to walk and bus!
