London
Embark on London's only land and water vehicle—the Duck—and experience the city from a truly unique perspective. Take to the streets and view Big Ben, Trafalgar Square, and Hyde Park Corner before your Duck makes a dramatic "splashdown" into the River Thames for the waterborne leg of your tour.
