The YellowDuckMarine (Liverpool) Reviews
Newest Review: ... to show you the Liverpool Pierhead, the Cunard and Liver Buildings which Liverpool is so famously known for. You then go into the centre of Liverpool and see some of the other famous sights like the Cavern Club, the 2 cathedrals in the city, the Railway buildings, and the Chinese quarter featuring a big gate. This was accompanied by lots of explanation of what we were seeing by the tour guide, who peppered his description with lots of silly stories and jokes. As well as being a good way to get your bearings in a strange to us City, you got a good idea of the history and had a lot of fun. It was a really pleasant trip and we had a very am... more

Last week we had a 2 night vacation in Liverpool without the kids, which was really delightful. One of the highlights is a trip we took on the Yellow Duckmarine. As we got off, we were told 'If you liked it tell everyone, and if you didn't don't bother,' and i immediately thought of sharing on Dooyoo. What is a Yellow Duckmarine? It is an amphibious vehicle that can travel on land or water. It was designed originally for use by the military in World War 2 by Roderic Stephens, an American who worked for Sparkman and Stephens in New York.

This year was my 40th Birthday, and my family were thinking what to buy me. I'm quite a simplistic person really, and most things I want, I have already purchased or resigned myself that it is not just going to happen. So the speed boat I saw in Earls Court Boat Show back in the 1980's, will sadly be just a dream. However my daughters and my wife thought of the next best thing.It was a trip on the yellow duck. Until recently I used to work in the Albert Dock in Liverpool and I would see all the tourists queuing up to go on this. I would see them on land and in the water on the way to (and from) work. So what is it all about? The ducks (or DUCWS) ... Read the complete review

I honestly think this bus/boat is the funniest looking think I've ever seen. When I first came to Liverpool I decided to go sightseeing to get my barings, and immediately came across this little beauty! It's a big yellow bus, which doubles as a boat, and is cleverly titled the 'yellow duckmarine' (in homage to the beatles' 'yellow submarine', geddit?). Seeing this thing trundling around the streets of Liverpool is funny enough, but actually being on it...so, so funny! The tour starts on the Albert Docks, a beautiful area of Liverpool, and proceeds to visit many of the beautiful landmarks in Liverpool, such as the Museum of Liverpool Life, the Tate gallery, and ...
