We thoroughly enjoyed the duck tour. Lots of interesting facts and information about the area and Maori culture and legends. Our driver was brilliant, kept the tone and jokes appropriate for everyone on board, he had a great sense of humour! And the splash downs were great fun

Best part was listening to Shaun telling us about the history of rotorua. Well done for a white guy. Mean that in a nice way. Too much guys keep up the good work kids loved the water part.

We did the 2 hour Lake Tarawera tour. It was extremely good. The driver was excellent and took us out on 2 different lakes. We even did a bit of sightseeing around the city centre

Went on this trip with my family doing the lake tour (covered 5 different lakes in Rotorua). Austin was a great tour guide had lots of interesting facts. Would certainly recommend this tour.

A great way to see some of the sights of Rotorua, with my highlight being able to get on the Blue Lake. The driver Sean was really good and very passionate about what he does. He kept us entertained for the full 90 minutes with his knowledge of Rotorua, the surrounding districts and his humour

We had the greatest time on the Duck - splashing down in 3 lakes. The weather was miserable but the experience was still awesome. The driver was great fun with lots of Maori stories and history. Highly recommend taking the time to do the long tour - beautiful part of the world.

When we seen this we decided we would love to go for a trip in it, but time was behind us so had to give it a miss. They are used for tours around and they also go onto lake. This would be a wonderful experience for all ages.
