One of the more reasonably priced attractions around the South Bank (but still no giveaway!) and in some ways quite personal as opposed to the cattle markets of The London Eye The London Dungeon and the Sea Life centre. I was born in London and lived in the City but this tour gave me some insights that I wasn't aware... More

Had the pleasure of attending this tour on sat 21/2/15. Our guide Michael was absolutely fantastic, his knowledge of London and the history with London was brilliant. I cannot wait to come again with the rest of my family for them to experience this wonderful tour. It is definitely for all ages, and the children will love the experience of... More

Best bit was the guide (Michael) and all his facts. He was incredibly knowledgable and as a Londoner I learnt a hell of a lot about the city. It was freezing, but we expected that and wore lots of layers. Funny going around in a giant yellow amphibious vehicle.

This 75 min tour (45 min on the road, 30 min on the water) was a fun way to see the sites. My 7 year loved the novelty of the duck although the commentary didn't hold his attention. I on the hand thought the commentary was brilliant! There were toddlers on board enjoying themselves too so definitely one for the... More

Nick (not Brendan of Golden Tours) was a fantastic tour guide... and Mark's driving was beautiful (like being sung to sleep by mermaids). We took a trip from Aylesford School in Warwick to London and this tour was a particular highlight due to the knowledge and entertainment of our tour guide. We have done this trip previously but this one... More

What a great experience this is. Forget the open top bus, this baby does that and goes down the slipway into the Thames for a grand cruise alongside a number of fine buildings! Certainly worth it for the river part in particular!

We were lucky as the weather was beautiful and sunny. Our kids (9 and 6) thoroughly enjoyed it and thought the drive into the water, like 007, was awesome. The tour guide had a dry sense of humour and told us some funny and interesting facts as we drove and floated around London. It isn't cheap but worth it for... More

Went on a sunny Sunday in February having booked a few months earlier. This was our 2nd time on the Duck tour and exceeded the first. Not only is it the experience of being in these vehicles and going onto the water without leaving your seat it was just how good the guide was. Ben was ours and I want... More

A knowledgable guide took our family on a road tour of Westminster with great information, fascinating facts and funny quips. Knew the WWII amphibious vehicle went from road to water, but as an over controlling mother was nervous on the slipway and on the Thames, but all was good. My 2 & 5 year old loved it. Great alternative to... More
