  • I am so grateful to Craig for the wonderful afternoon tour.  It was the highlight of my entire stay in Wellington.  I am actually not a big fan of the movie and I have not read the book.  I remember having Rivendell screensavers in my computer back in college but that was it.  The tour with Craig surely changed this.  I am now a big fan of the LOTR phenomenon.  My friend, Jim, who knows zero about LOTR, truly enjoyed the experience as well.  We were actually very lucky to have found a half day tour which suits our busy schedule.  Thanks to you guys.  More power to Wellington Rover. Thanks!

  • G’day, I am not a hard core Lord of the Rings fan but did the full day tour and had a great time. I would recommend the tour to anyone who just wants to see a lot of the Wellington area in a short time. Your tour guide had extensive knowledge, I really enjoyed the Weta Cave. Also thanks for finding my lost camera and returning it so quickly. Great to know there are still companies that can provide excellent customer service.

  • Just wanted to give you a big thanks for your tour for our short visit to Wellington. We had a fantastic ride and next time we will allow for a longer trip, we want to experience more of Welly as well as those hills! Coming back to Newcastle, Australia is not quite the same. We will definately spread the word!
