  • Awesome experience. It's mind blowing to see the props from movies you love. Although, after having watched all the behind the scenes from all the LOTR and Hobbit DVDs, the actual limited experience at the cave seems a bit underwhelming. We want more!!

  • Excellent tour for the whole family. Our tour was led by Reece, one of the armour makers for various films. He was extremely knowledgeable about the whole enterprise and breadth of topics. We went during the winter (August) so the tour size was very small, leading to an intimate experience. Highly enjoyed the second tour (Thunderbirds Are Go set) as well as the primary cave tour. Neat stuff!

  • Brilliant tour and well worth it plus the Thunderbird tour. Highly recommend this. Worth every penny

  • Not a huge LOTR fan but we dropped by since it was really near the airport. They offer studio tours if you are interested. Otherwise, still a good place to pop by from photo taking or souvenir shopping. There is a little museum within the shop that showcases the other work the studio does too.

  • Fabulous Place! The tour was so Cool!! and the Store has amazing things ♥
