London Duck Tours
London Duck Tours (previously Frog Tours) start in a conventional fashion from the rear of County Hall, crossing the river via Westminster Bridge to travel round Parliament Square, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly, Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey. Then they cross Vauxhall Bridge and take a slipway down the side of the MI6 Building – into the Thames. The final half hour of the 80-minute tour is a boat trip along the river to the London Eye and back. The tour 'buses' are four adapted DUKWs developed by General Motors during WWII. The D-Day Duck Tour features character tour guides revealing important WWII sites, in authentic vehicles built for D-Day.

I'm glad I got to go on a duck tour just before it closed in London for good. The tour was fun, taking in all the big sights (Westminster, Queen's Horse Guard, Downing Street etc) with a few facts here and there, but nothing thoroughly explained. The splashdown into the river near Vauxhall was a novelty, however the part of the Thames you actually sail on is quite boring. We only went up to the London eye and then came back. The tour guide stopped talking at this point (probably because there isn't much to say) and spent the whole time on his phone. A novel experience but if you want something more in depth I'd suggest a tour on foot.
