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.

Takes you to other lakes in the area, with commentary from the tour guide which gives a perspective on how the lakes were formed.

Wonderful tour in Lake Okareka, Lake Tikitapu, and Lake Tarawera. Also a great experience to learn the history. I will definitely choose duck tour again when I come back next time.
