London Duck Tours

Hop On Board
a Duck

London Duck Tours is no ordinary tour but an amphibious adventure.


See the capital in a whole new way by taking a guided trip through the historic streets before splashing in the River Thames. That's right, the specialist D-Day vehicles adapt to go from road to river as part of a completely unique experience.

The history of 'The Ducks' is as fascinating as the tour itself - the product of two very impressive parents, the General Motors Corporation (GMC – who provided the automotive components) and the celebrated New York City yacht designers Sparkman & Stephens who gave the new vehicle its sea-going capabilities. The vehicles played a crucial role in the D-Day landings - history buffs. find out all you need to know on the new London Duck Tours website.
