We had Marcus as our tour guide for this trip & he was hilarious! Told us all about history on the volcanos & the area with a humorous approach. Beautiful scenery! The duwk truck/boat was awesome! Make sure to take along your singing voices if you are lucky enough to have Marcus!!

We had a 2 hour tour of the lakes. Didn’t see much of Rotorua but plenty of the surrounding area. Great entertainment with interesting stories and don't forget the duck whistles! On reflection I thought it was pricey though it is definitely a unique tour.

Great way to spend a fun afternoon. The driver was a barrel of laughs and full of fun facts (some not so factual). The experience of driving out into the water was amazing.

I done this trip 3 times in Seattle, so knew what to expect in NZ. But this was MORE than I expected as we went into water so many times. Our guide, Austin, was very knowledgeable and fun to be with. Don't miss this - put it on your to-do list!

You load downtown and then get a mini tour of Rotorura. Then it's off to a couple of beautiful lakes with a cruise on each. If you've never been in a "Duck" it's a lot of fun.

We had a great time on this tour. Beautiful lakes, good information on local history told with a good amount of humor thrown in. I highly recommend the two-hour tour, since the additional lakes and views are spectacular. Austin was our guide and did a fabulous job!

A great bunch of people who obviously enjoy their work,and why wouldn't they. This is a beautiful place. We saw more on the tour than we could ever have found for ourselves. For a 74 year old vehicle the duck made for an interesting ride particularly at top speed on the lakes. Austin engaged and informed and was a lot... More

I did this by myself and actually had a really good time. The guide was very knowledgable but also quite funny, making the tour very enjoyable. The views are awesome and you experience the beauty of New Zealand a completely different way. Definitely recommend paying the bit extra for the longer tour
