  • The tour itself was in the main informative and about the right length of time at an hour but the two guides showed a complete lack of respect to their customers with inappropriate personal remarks and swearing on their microphone headsets, upsetting and embarrassing my party which included two young children and I would expect a number of other customers. In fairness I did write to complain and the Company apologised, advised that they had investigated the matter and taken appropriate action. Lets hope It works!

  • This was enjoyable and the operators very knowledgeable about the area and the marina. Seeing the tallest single mastered ship was awesome. The twilight cruise was great. :

  • Been on a few Ducks Singapore, Ketchikan, Seattle and they ALL had lively Drivers and Narrators with music playing and really got everyone involved. Unfortunately the Auckland Duck lacked the WOW factor and was a little lame. The route was OK, it was the experience that was flat. Sorry

  • A fun way to view downtown Auckland by road and the marina area by water - most enjoyable.
