London Duck Tours offer more than just a sightseeing tour; it's an exciting road and river adventure appealing to visitors of all ages! The amphibious craft, originally known as 'DUKWS', were first used for the D-Day landings when more than 21,000 were built to take the troops ashore.
The concept of using original DUKW as a sightseeing vehicle originated from Boston Duck Tours and was transferred to London for the new millennium. The successful business which you see today was rebranded as London Duck Tours in acknowledgement of the vehicles themselves and the concept flowing from America. London Duck Tours became fully established in July 2003.
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 Vauxhall for the waterborne part of the tour.
The standard tour lasts about 75 minutes and is enhanced by an entertaining, action packed commentary by the Duck Tour guides who provide an alternative and insightful view of London's history, plus fascinating facts and figures about the original D-Day vehicles themselves.
With the launch of the enhanced ‘Pirate Falls-Dynamite Drench’ London Duck Tours were the perfect partners for this hugely popular ride. Both adventures start with a little sightseeing before you will experience the awesome splash down.
With both you can also expect fellow explorers and adventures to partake in your excitement as with a London Duck Tour feel like a celebrity as people wave at you as you pass by whilst on ‘Pirate Falls-Dynamite Drench’ you get soaked by fellow explorers with the water cannons from the sidelines!!!
Both are unforgettable and exciting adventures and don’t forget to go and see London Duck Tours in Miniland London whilst in LEGOLAND
