On a warm Saturday afternoon in July, I decided to take my family on London Duck Bus to have a tour of London and explore the most talked about sights with a live commentary, before splashing into River Thames to see London’s biggest attraction. Although our bus was running late, there was time to enjoy ourselves at the park nearby, where there had lush grass to sit on and a little play area for kids so the little ones can play on the swings and slides.
This London Duck Tour tends to last up to 75 minutes and probably one the most recommending activity in London to explore with either friends or family.
As my nephew and niece wanted to play in the kid’s playground, we decided to let them play until our bus arrived later on. As our bus arrived with our names being called out to board the bus, so from there on our scenery tour started off by crossing the bridge overseeing St Pauls and other architectures.
Then we headed towards Westminster Abbey, however, as there was a demonstration going on this day, we could not visit the whole of parliament area. After some time being stuck in traffic, we got to our stop as drivers changed around we headed down to the river. This was probably the most fun part as everyone enjoyed being in the river and seeing some fab sights around.
As the bus drove across the river, we got to see few tall buildings including MI6, back of the Westminster Parliament and the London Eye as we crossed the River Thames and the bridge.
If you enjoy a bit of sightseeing and a bit of boat cruise then I would recommend checking this Duck Tour out at least once. I would suggest visiting as a couple or with family. If you tend to bring kids under 5 there may get bored at the start, especially if there are lots of traffic ahead. Otherwise, there will enjoy when it comes to going into the river as that usually makes them cheered up and happy.

Overall, I thought this sightseeing tour activity is a worthwhile experience if you’re new to London or just enjoy all the huge sights of London town. However, having my niece and nephew with me was fun as we all loved splashdown and having spent Saturday altogether.

I have to say it was one long afternoon, but a very good day out spent with the family as we decided to have a little explore around and make the most out of the sun around the South Bank. After heading off to eat at a Burger place in Covent Garden.
