So after Xmas and new years how are those waistlines feeling?  Tight by any chance?  Even worse, how are those purse strings?  Even tighter?  Fear not my friends, whilst January is always a shocker for having no cash and needing to stay in all the time, I offer you the chance of an escape from left over chocolate and TV boxed sets, I offer you something to look forward to in the not so distant future.  Hurrah!

This new year I’ve teamed up with the awesome peeps at www.Getyourguide.com and am pleased to be able to offer your good selves a new competition on backpacksandbunkbeds.co.uk, the prize of 2 x London Duck Tour tickets awaits the winner of this very competition.  Fear not if you do not dwell in the nations capital full time, the winning vouchers you will receive have a life span of 12 months.  So even if you are just visiting in 2013 there’s no reason you cant be a winner.

Anyway, tour info, link and terms etc are below …

London Duck Tour

Experience London both on water and land with a London Duck Tour.  Over 75 minutes and accompanied by a fun and knowledgeable guide, your tour will take you on a whirlwind tour of the English capital.  Though it may look a little odd, the duck was once an essential mode of transport.  This WWII vehicle was once used to transport all manner of essential supplies to Normandy during D-Day, it is an historically significant vehicle and a great method of transport to see London from.

Some of what you’ll see on the tour …

  • Houses of Parliament
  • 10 Downing Street
  • Buckingham Palace
  • Westminster
  • MI5
  • The River Thames (30 mins of 75 total spent on the river)
