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.
To reflect their amphibious nature they have been renamed 'Ducks' for the London adventure. Departing from Chicheley St. Waterloo (behind the London Eye), the 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 London Ducktours own slipway at Vauxhall for the waterborne part of the 75 minute tour of London.
The excitement of seeing London in this novel way is enhanced by an entertaining, action packed commentary by tour guides providing an alternative view of London's history, plus fascinating facts and figures about the DUKW vehicles themselves. Today's vehicles bear little resemblance to their military predecessors in their eye catching yellow livery.
An initial fleet of five vehicles have been totally rebuilt to meet the stringent safety regulations set by the D.E.T.R. and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (M.C.A). The vehicles have been extensively refurbished and fitted with the latest environmentally friendly 4.0L diesel engines, seating for 30 passengers, a public address system and regulatory safety equipment.
London Duck Tours have created an exciting adventure for visitors to London taking in the sights by road and river. No one has ever seen anything like it before on the streets of London, let alone the river!
