London Duck Tour – Amphibious Vehicle
The Duck Tours actually got its name from the vehicles themselves, which is an important part of British history. The amphibious craft, originally known as “DUKWS” were first used for the D-Day landings. In their eye-catching yellow livery, today’s vehicles bear little resemblance to their military predecessors.
The vehicles have been extensively refurbished and fitted with the latest environmentally friendly diesel engines. The deluxe refits includes comfortable seating for 30 passengers, a public address system and full safety equipment.
