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

That's a lot of money to be taken round the streets of London .. oh and then finally onto the Thames. Not all of the tour is on water, so for the road part I could have taken a standard bus tour - the boat is their unique selling points after all? The guides were then poor, they come across... More

I booked this land & water attraction for myself, daughter & two grandsons ( 7 & 4 ). The land tour was very informative & our tour guide was really lovely, answering everyone's questions & not forgetting to quack at the appropriate times. After the land tour we stopped for lunch then hopped on the river cruise which was equally... More

I took my 3 year old for his birthday - I grew up in London, but he has grown up in the country. And we both loved it! It makes London come alive. They have had a rough ride, but these vehicles are 65 years old about !!!!! You have to do this it should be on the bucket list... More

This tour was supposed to be the highlight of our stay with my 9 years old-son. DON'T TRUST THE PICTURES ON THE WEBSITE !!! you will never sail the river with the same vehicule. Due to safety reasons, the tour on the Thames is on board an ordinary cruise boat ( no fun at all). The tour on the road... More

The duck tour was a present to us from our friends, couldn't be a better gift! Our guide Matthew was the best guide ever, wish our tour with him was much longer! Knowledgeable, intelligent and sarcastically funny he made this short tour to remember After city tour we had a river cruise which was good as well

Very disappointed! We took our family of 9 people on the london duck tour the 1st May and this tour was definetly not worth the name 'duck tour'. We did several in the US , but this one wasn't ' fun'. The tour guide (Dave) was boring and uninterested and not interacting at all.There is no added value to hop... More

We took family guests to London and hoped for a unique experience. This turned out to be a waste of our time and money when we were informed that the duck us not going into the water this month due to alterations.. On the booking there is a mentioning of the boat cruise which unless you are familiar with the... More

Very disappointing. Spent over £50 to take my mum and young son on this London tour. My son wanted to experience going from road to water on one vehicle. It was confusing to book and when we arrived I discovered that the Duck was currently unable to transfer from road to water so we were given 2 separate tours: Duck... More

This was booked as a 'let's do something different today' idea and what a good one it turned out to be. The guide (Ruth) and the driver (Bill) were excellent and even though I work in London, some of the facts that we learnt about various places were real 'ooooh I didn't know that'. It's a great way to travel... More
