This is an awesome tour and our tour guide Sean was fab. The tour takes you around rotorua then oyt to the lakes where this amphibious vehicle comes into its own. Had a great time.

We did the small 90 minute tour, this was very good and took us around the main sites in the town plus 2 other lakes. The driver was very knowledgable and and kept the youngsters amused all the time. Well worth doing.
