Quack quack

Quack quack. The duck experience is a great way to learn about Rotorua. We learnt about local history from the awesome ConDucktor Josh with his wicked sense of humour. Was amazing to see the beautiful lakes and then be in it. Highly recommend this tour.

Awesome experience

We’ve always thought about doing one of these tours, but didn’t get around to booking. Wish we had of done sooner. Josh was fantastic. He really knew his stuff - so knowledgeable, fun, oh and modest! Thanks Josh for such a great tour
