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.

Even the safety drill was conducted so well, the children and adults had a short stint at the wheel in the lakes, made them feel really special. The tour operators choice of music was excellent too. Not a moment was wasted on this lovely journey!”
