Perfect for all ages, it's the only way to experience the sights and sounds of central London on land and river without leaving the comfort of your seat. Departing from Chicheley Street SE1 (just behind the London Eye) our amphibious vehicles drive past famous London landmarks such as Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and Trafalgar Square before a dramatic launch into the River Thames from our slipway at MI6. All this on vehicles used for the D-Day landings in 1944. « less

We went on with our two children 4 & 7. They loved it especially our 7 year old boy who retained a lot of stats from the commentary. The only shame was having to change "ducks" to go into the water, I assume there was something wrong with ours but it beats sinking!!

We had waited several months to book the Ducktours online for a birthday treat for my 9 year daughter in July, as we especially wanted to experience both the road and river aspect, which had temporarily ceased due to health and safety updates. I was glad we waited as the water ride completed the experience. Our guide was jolly and... More

It is a fun way to get your bearings in London. Not only do you drive by the major sites, but you splash into the Thames River as well. The guide was excellent. Really glad we started out our first trip to London with this activity. My teenager and my 10 year old loved this ride.

This fell short of what I expected. It is a road and river trip but you just don't get near to the sights at all - that all rather pass by very quickly. Not much opportunity for photos

Me and my friends went to London on Saturday 16/08/2014. We decided to go on a London Duck Tour as it seemed like a fun and exciting way of seeing all of the landmarks. We couldn't see anything on the website about wheelchair access but assumed it would be fine as it is a main tourist attraction and we are... More

Thank you for your feedback and having looked into this, there seems to have been a miscommunication by a member of our staff. We would never expect a wheelchair user to have to walk to our shop to collect their chair. We're sorry that this prevented your group from travelling but we will use this experience to improve our customer... More

Great fun, felt very personal as vehicles only take 30 people. Fantastic guide, so learnt lots of interesting facts and made us laugh! Very exciting driving into Thames - loved it!

We had a family day out with friends and had others recommend the Duck Tour. How right they were! Our guide Mark was simply brilliant! Funny and very knowledgable and I think this made the tour even better! If you want a different view of London and people to take your photo as well, this is for you! If there... More

It's a school holiday must do! There is nothing else like it. Bright yellow amphibious landing craft - photograph it before you get on it because you won't quite believe what you are about to do! You drive off for a mini City tour basically passing Westminster etc on route to the river Thames. You are enjoying the sites and... More

Did this tour with the grandkids, and must say we're so glad we booked it. Looked at lots of info on many of the London tours but decided on this one because we thought the kids would like it but turns out we all loved it. We had a very informative and really funny guide called Graham from Yorkshire, well!... More

We went on the London Duck Tour as my son had birthday money to spend. We had a fab time, I learnt lots about the history of the Westminster area and my son loved the bit on the Thames :-)
