“conDucktor is a hoot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

It's a great day out on the Duck, very funny and educational at the same time. The windows can flap down when it's too cold and there are blankets over the colder months. It's very exciting to splash down into 3 or 4 lakes, depending on which tour you choose. I've been twice with my children and they loved it!

“Great fun and very interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

This tour is a "must do" if visiting Rotorua. The driver/guide took us around Rotorua on the road before heading off to the lakes where the amphibious vehicle took to the lakes for a tour around them. We were all given "duck" whistles which we were encouraged to blow whenever passing groups of people and the children loved it.

“Fun afternoon out!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

We did the Tarawera Lakes 2hr tour. It was relaxed, fun and enjoyable. Our driver was in good humour and knowledgeable about the area. A great way to see the lakes without getting your feet wet! Ideal for all ages.

“Great fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

Did this tour on the morning of my birthday and it really was hilarious! We were just 4 adults ( we didnt know the other two), when a party of 12 school children joined us and I am so glad they did as they really did make it extra funny.
We picked up the tour outside the information centre in Rotorua, We were taken on a road trip around Rotorua and then driven into the Blue Lake...I loved it, it was so exciting . Add to this our quackers...some people waved others looked in disdain..that made it even funnier. (you really do have to get into the spirit of it).
We were taken all around the town, it is really pretty and the driver was very knowledgeable about it. I have seen these tours in other cities but this is the first I have ever done. Well worth the money.

Each year we visit Rotorua for a weekend away with Friends, this year we took a tour with Rotorua Duck Tours, I would recommend this to all who visit Rotorua.
The Driver/Host was excellent the scenery magnificent it was well worth every cent we paid for the 90 minutes we spent on the tour.
