The driver/host was awesome, an American dude who knew alot about Rotorua and was very witty in his hosting. Took my 4 year old with me on this, as well as my siblings and mother. It really is a fantastic... More

Booked online for the duck tours for my family and I from Auckland. Learnt some interesting myths/facts about rotorua. Best part was swimming through the lakes, and using our "quackers". My 4yr nephew loved it but got tired close to the end of the tour. Unless u have an energetic child, I'd recommend the 90 min tour if you've got... More

loved everything and going out on the lakes was great, our guide was great and worked hard to keep everyone engaged and involved, personally I hated the duck call whistle, but they did make a cool memento.

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
