London Duck Tours
Combining the sight-seeing elements and tour guide enthusiasm with an altered view of London, the Duck Tours bolster the city's touring scene perfectly by taking guests down the river in an old WWII amphibious boat-cum-truck.
Departing from behind the London Eye, you'll lurch past Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament and Trafalgar Square before descending as gracefully as this vehicle can into the choppy Thames for the aquatic part of the tour.
Departures are scheduled to leave every fifteen minutes from the Eye, and seat up to thirty passengers. Standard safety equipment is provided in case you fall overboard (highly unlikely), and standard tours last for just over an hour. There's also an on-board commentary courtesy of the knowledgeable, amusing tour guide so you know exactly what you're looking at. The guide will also throw in unusual facts about each highlight.
London's Duck Tours are a sensational way to get around the city, where you'll gain insightful information about its past along the way. Remember those waterproofs and sea-sickness pills for wet and windy weather!
