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

Brilliant tour, had to change vehicles from land to water but we were told in detail why and both were Ducks! Tour was informative albeit fast paced and the guide (forget his name but described himself as the ginger one) was knowledgable and hilarious, definitely kept a captive audience! A little on the pricey side but worth it and enjoyed... More

My friend lives in London and had been wanting to do this for a long time and she used my visit as an excuse to finally go along. It was worth the trip, the guide was good fun - light hearted and informative. You get about an hour or so on land whilst passing the usual sights of Buckingham Palace,... More

Just generally great fun, educational & unique! We arrived an hour and a half earlier than our booking time but managed to get on the next available tour. This was around 11am and i will mention that there is traffic at this time for the changing of the guards so i would chose a different time. Everything else was great... More

Good over an hour tour of top spots in London, plus up and down the River Thames, well worth doing and good safety briefing. Would do it again.

One of my sons noted that it was not the best bus tour of London, not the best cruise of the Thames, but it is a great and fun combination of the two. I loved the bus/boat which is army surplus from WWII. Also I thought that the tour guide was great. Not too much not too little. Highly recommended.

My friend, her 5 year old son and I booked to go on the Duck Tour. We had a very knowledgeable guide Ali who gave us lots of fun and interesting facts about the sights we were seeing. I would definitely recommend this tour as a different way of seeing London. The website recommends that you take something warm to... More

Was a spur of the moment decision to do this tour. Staff were friendly and the tour was enjoyable. Only downside was that we had to keep pace with traffic so went past the sights quite quickly. The portion of your on the river was also good. The ticket price was perhaps a little high but not too much so

We went on this tour with our children aged 15 and 6, it was a great way to see the sights around London. The only slight downside is when you travelling on the road it obviously has to keep up with the traffic so sometimes you don't get long to see things but it tries to slow down where possible...

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!!
