Loved being able to skip the line especially when it was very long.
The London Eye is a definite must-do. The staff are pleasant and professional. We had purchased tickets for the 3:00 pm tour but had problems with the holiday transit schedules and arrived late. We anticipated having to pay again for a later tour but the attraction staff were very accommodating and booked us on the next available tour. That gave us time to explore the nearby area a bit, which was quite enjoyable with all the Christmas lights and activities. The Champagne upgrade was definitely worthwhile as we had a very hospitable guide take us directly from the building to our pod (avoiding the line ups in the rain), serve us a nice glass of bubbly during the tour, and patiently offer to take pictures of each group of tourist. Beware of the selfie-sticks though – our pod seemed full of them!
This tour was exactly as advertised. Tour personnel were very punctual. At the exact time promised we were moving toward the Eye and entering our pod. Our tour guide stayed with us for the entire trip. She was knowledgeable answering questions. It was not too crowded. The views were amazing and the champagne was delicious. The staff made this a very enjoyable experience. Would highly recommend.
This was great! Skipped the queues. A private 'bubble' on the eye for our group and a glass of Champagne! Our guide was great, very knowledgable. We were 2 adults and 3 kids. We had a great time. Well worth it!
Brilliant experience. Great way to beat the queues and enjoy the view.
very nice set up, short line to get there, gteat veiw
compare to average gondola you will have very few people which makes it so nice for pictures
I have been on the London Eye before, but this is the way to do it! Only 10 people which was lovely. Just be sure to buy the extra glass of chanpagne at the desk before you go up because you can't do it from the server.
I will comment on a bit of mix up. We arrived on time for the day we booked. But, our names were not on the list. They accepted the Viatour voucher but we had to reserve a different day and time which confused our tour scheduling since we had so much else booked.
