We had such a lovely and very funny 'American' guide with more knowledge than most Kiwis' Lol. A great activity for all kinds of weather. Love the 'duck' whistles, the views, the history and simply taking it all in while you sit back and relax. Thank you!

Our tour leader Austin was funny, friendly and a wealth of information. The Tour was just outstanding and we plan to do it again the next time we visit Rotovegas. Top job Duck Tours. Austin was a good investment. Keep up the good work.

Thanks to the whole team, from booking, to driving and commentary. We absolutely enjoyed it. Our daughter especially loved driving the Duck on the Blue Lake and I managed to get a cool photo of her. We've had an awesome stay in Rotorua and will be back again. Kingi whanau, Napier ;)

We had a great time on the duck even though it was wet outside. It was a great tour around the city with fun informative commentary. Our Driver (Grant) was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable and kept everyone entertained. My 5yo son loved it when we drove off the side of the lake into the water... and the quacker whistle... More

Our driver/host was Austin. This experience was extremely informative and our driver was confident, knowledgeable and competent. Not only do you experience and learn about this magnificent bus/boat, but u learn about Rotorua and its history, Rotorua attractions, Maori legends, Good places to eat and how the bus/boat originated. This attraction was excellent from beginning to end. Highly recommend!

We enjoyed the visit up to a point. However we only went to one lake because there was a triathalon that closed a road which led to one of the lakes we were going to visit. The commentary was really great and we did learn a lot even though we have visited Rotorua many times. It would have been good... More
