I went as a class for the NZST and loved the tour. Matt, our tour guide was enthusiastic, creative and personalised our tour and made it engaging to everyone! So cool to see everything and it was really interactive, great for families. Highly recommend!

The whole experience was awesome! Our tour guide Paige was excellent - you couldn't have asked for a better tour guide. It was a very interactive experience and good value as we spent about 2 hours there. Everything it clearly well thought out, dripping in creativity and really fun. If you are in AKL cbd definitely check it out. Suitable for kids and adults. My partner and I in our early 30's thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks!

We were stuck in Auckland due to travel delays and decided to do this tour. We had previously been to the actual workshop in Wellington - which was great - so had high expectations. Unfortunately this just did not live up to it. It’s waaaay too long and drawn out. We were actually bored walking around in each section after about 5mins. It would be cool if they went through actual movies they have made but seems these were just made up for the tour…

Our tour guide Rory was fantastic, incredibly informative, high energy, and showcased a great passion for his work. The displays were incredible, the large scale pieces were mind blowing, the quality and quantity of work on display was enormous, ample time to look around experience all the creativity.
