Take to the streets of London on the quirky yellow Duck truck and see the capital's most famous sites, including Houses of Parliament and Downing Street. The Duck then transforms into a boat, taking you off on a 30-minute adventure down the River Thames!
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.
