We enjoyed the overview of some of the top sights of London, and the anecdotes that the guides shared, but it was quick and not very detailed. Going into the river was fun, and it was a good intro to London sights.

I live and work in Central London and have wanted to take a trip on the one of the duck tours for quite a while. It took my daughters insistence for me to get around to it. I wish I hadn't waited so long. Most informative, very funny and at times very exciting. Great energy from Matt, our host, I... More

I took my wife, her parents and my 3 year old on this unforgettable 75-minute trip around London – on the road, and in the River Thames – and everyone had an amazing time. I learned more about London than I have on any other London tour and the duration was just perfect. Dress up warm, though – it's always... More

The London Duck Tour was a big disappointment! The first duck tour we went on was in Miami - that was absolutely fantastic. Everybody cheered, clapped their hands and - of course quacked. We learned a lot in a very entertaining way. The same is true for the San Francisco duck tour. London, however, is very different. Our guide was... More

We went on with my 4 year old daughter who absolutely loved being on the duck esp when it went down the ramp into the water. She thought this was fantastic! The guide ensured she was safe and happy in the boat offered to leave the plastic window down for our comfort but reassured us with it up she would... More

If you fancy sightseeing with a twist then London Duck Tours is a fab and fun way to see some of the great places in London. Our guide was energetic and bubbly which made it all the more fun. After seeing the sights on land you then head down the river for even more. Great day out for all ages... More

Wow! What an utter let down!! They overbooked the boat so to begin with we couldn't even get on our time and boat that we booked so it screwed up the rest of our day. No apologies or anyone trying to make amends, they just told us to come back for one later that day!! Ruined the day, tour wasn't... More

The nearest tube station to the tour is Waterloo. It's just a couple of minutes' walk from there. We got there and reported to the organiser who explained that everyone would board the duck in order of when they arrived. The duck vehicle itself is very interesting and certainly turns heads on its travels! The windows can go up or... More
