Wonderful experience. The staff at the reception were sensitive to our requests regarding the tour and Gaby - the Gabatron - alias the mad girl from Melbourne - was an absolute gem and the perfect tour guide!!! We don’t usually post on any form of technology but we just had to make an exception to the rule in order to heap our praises on this great Auckland tourist attraction. Congratulations to everyone involved in the project.

This is an amazing experience. So well thought out and constructed the Weta experience is brilliant. Our guide Gabatron was outstanding and enhanced the whole tour with her wit and humour. Thoroughly recommend this for anyone remotely interested in what goes on behind the scenes at Weta workshops
