    Those in London have likely seen those yellow aqua buses about, I was wondering if anyone has actually ever been on one and what it was like? They look like they are aimed more for kids but noticed on their website they have different themed tours in addition to the classic sightseeing tour and also seem to target a corporate market too.

    Being local a tourist sight seeing thing isn’t likely to appeal but does this go in to a bit more depth with unusual sights, have a bit more novelty and fun about it or is the sub aqua thing just a bit of a gimmick on an otherwise standard tour?

    Thanks.

    Did it earlier in the year, it was raining but still fun, there isn't much to the 'duck' bit, but the tour guide was good, informative fun facts etc and tries to get everyone to quack at people on that way around, so fun for kids.

    Did one in Boston; enjoyed it. You get a different view of the city.
