You then travel to the Lakes where you go into the Lakes, more sights and history along the way, but most of all laughter the whole way! Everyone on board gets a 'duck' whistle/blower, hysterical. I loved... More

We really had a good time on the tour, able to experience the sights in a different way. Special mention to Grant, we enjoyed the duck out of his tour!

Such a cool and informative way to see some of the sights of Rotorua and the lakes. Our guide Paul was awesome! We had a nice small group so lots of space to move around and the kids got to drive the Duck on the lakes! Highly recommend it!

We all got duck whistles on boarding. Duck was full. We took in a few sights of the area and two water entrances in local lakes. Was good value and about 100 minutes. Kids love it. Guide added lots of comedy, so much so it was hard to differentiate between fact and fiction. History of the Duck was also very... More

We had a great tour on this historic vehicle maintained and repurposed from WW2. Our tour guide tok us to two very different lakes, right in and around them, sprinkling interesting facts and highlights.

A wonderful way to experience the beautiful lakes in Rotorua, learn its history an Maori Myths, Our Father Duck was most entertaining, he even encouraged the Trout to jump beside the duck ! The chance for a hot coffee at Tarawera left us time to gaze on its beautiful Lake. We found it money well spent, Thanks for a great... More
