What to Expect

Experience the many faces of London – the grand architecture, royalty, parliament, and pageantry – from an amphibious WWII Duck truck! 

Start the sightseeing tour next to the London Eye. From here, hop on the mighty Duck, the kooky vehicle that’s a splash of fun among the capital’s black cabs and traditional red double-deckers.

Swing past the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, and the Prime Minister’s home at number 10 Downing Street. Next stop in London is Trafalgar Square, with your guide providing action-packed commentary along the way. You will drive past the following Palaces; Buckingham, Lambeth, and St. James's.

Pass by the Tate Britain and continue on through Westminster. The Duck might look a little incongruous among the capital's most exclusive streets, famous hotels, and fancy stores, but that’s all part of the Duck's charm.

The Duck is quite the British institution too. Invented in 1942, 21,000 of these real-life Duck transformers were used during D-Day to bring supplies from ships to Normandy's beaches. In fact, in 1944, Ducks brought 18 million tons of supplies ashore to France over 4 months, saving countless lives. 

After all that sightseeing, it’s time to take the Duck off the road and into the River Thames! At a water ramp right next to the MI5 headquarters, the Duck truck will zoom into the muddy waters and become a boat in a dramatic river landing. Enjoy a 30-minute voyage hearing about London and its famous sights.

Tour guides - good, Ducks going through London traffic - Not Good

I was pretty disappointed with the tour. The tour guides did their jobs, but using the ducks to provide an enjoyable tour is difficult when you are traveling in London traffic. Obviously, they cannot stop at any landmarks they just have to move with traffic. So it was not so great seeing Buckingham Palace from the side as you are moving by. And if you wanted to take any pictures, it was pretty much out of the question. If you were fast enough and timed it right you might get a shot, but it would be obstructed by the canopy that covers the duck. When i read the reviews, the biggest complaint was that you had to change ducks before getting into the water. We did have to change, but that was probably a much smaller nuisance. All in all, the ducks really aren't conducive to a good tour if you want to take photos and admire the landmarks. My daughter and i needed to walk back to each landmark.
