What Are People Saying
I have been using the Duck Tours with my Geography classes for the past five years. I have been continually impressed by their professionalism and attention to detail. The Duck Boat guides have the perfect blend of humor combined accurate water quality statistics which is an absolute necessity for our assessment.
– Rotorua Lakes High School
We took 4 year 2 classes on the Duck as an end of year school trip. The trip was well organised and fabulous. All of the children loved it. The children learned some information about the Duck Boat itself and our surrounding area. It was a great way to end the year together.
