We were a group of eleven ladies travelling together on a work adventure. We were aged 20-64, various shapes and sizes and this tour suited the lot of us. Austin was hugely entertaining and we enjoyed his humour as well as the very interesting facts he shared about the local area. It was pouring down but we had choices to... More

Today we went on Rotorua Duck Tours & found Sean our driver to have the best sense of humour & gave us so much interesting information. As there were only 4 of us, Sean treated us like family & we had the best time. Would highly recommend this tour to anybody.

Took our bigger kids on this - had a total blast and loved every second. Lots of history and some good laughs from the driver. Suggest that they get that runway extended as seems a bit short for take off!

The guide makes it fun and has plenty of interesting facts about the area in both history and geology. Being a local I even learnt things I... More
