DUCK Tours

You will never tour Singapore in anything that comes close to Singapore DUCK tours. The fun begins as soon as you board your “DUCK”, an authentic, newly converted Vietnam War amphibious craft, at Suntec City. You will see the Historic Civic District of Singapore. Watch out for the “Splashdown” when the wacky Captain & Duck trainer reminds you as the DUCK plunges into the water, and you are off for the second part of the tour – the scenic harbour tour.
