“Great for the kids!”
Reviewed December 21, 2013

I took my 8 year old cousin with me on the duck tour for some school holiday fun and she LOVED it! She kept telling me how cool it was and thoroughly enjoyed 'quacking' at everyone we drove past. Grant, our driver was funny and very knowledgeable and we learnt a lot on the tour. Great way to enjoy the beautiful scenery around the lakes and learn about Rotorua. :-)

“Really Fun and Lots of Historic and Local Facts Too!”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

We weren't really sure what to expect but within minutes felt we had made the RIGHT decision for our one day in Rotorua. The duck itself is an old WW2 boat/vehicle combo and the tour takes you through some of the sights in town and up some steep terrain/volcanoes and plops right into the most beautiful lakes. Our driver, Pauly, was especially lively and was very friendly and fun the entire time. Little duck quacker noise makers are passed out and we were egged on by Pauly to blow those at a lot of people to try and get reactions. What a scream! All ages enjoyed this adventure.

“Great fun”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

Loads of fun for every age group. We were the the only Kiwis ( grandparents with a 13 year old granddaughter ), the others were an older English tour group, and everybody enjoyed the humorous commentary and all the information given by the owner/ driver.

“Duck Tours”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

We took our 4 kids (aged 3-16) on this cruise in the October school holidays, and everyone had a great time. The driver's endless humour really made it a worthwhile Rotorua experience.
