Me and my friend did the London Eye for our 50th Birthday's and we absolutely loved it. Fantastic experience to view London. Would highly recommend fast track to avoid the big queues. Will definately be back but next time with my husband! Thanks for the wonderful experience!
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.
This was great and view was wonderful. Guide was friendly and knowledgable. Luckily for us we had a clear day. Worth doing.
Tour is wonderful. But one problem. We had tickets for 31 december. I' ve bought them as present for my girlfriend. And I wished to ask her to be my wife. Unfortunatly when we call a day beore and then came to London Eye, manager told us, that they dont have reservation on this date and never had. Viator didnt send them confirmation of booking. Thanx to manager, he found a place for us at January 2, but my holiday and idea were broken. Thanx to Viator.
Wonderful experience. No waiting and no issues . Had to change day and time of the experience.
Sorted with one phone call.
Thank you for a wonderful experience.
A wonderful experience. From entering the hall and being welcomed by our attendant and the vip express pass to the Eye it all just fell into place. The attendant was wonderful and joined in with all the passengers engaging and being very helpful with photos etc It was something we will never forget and we have a photo for a keepsake. Booking online was great and have recommended Viator to many friends Thankyou
Worth paying a little extra to do the champagne experience. There were only 6 people in our pod, which made it easier to get pictures. However, Viator has you pick a time, this time is not reserved, we had to reserve a time and did not get the sunset ride time we wanted (the one we picked on Viator). If you buy this, call in advance to reserve a time slot.
Cool experience. We skip an huge line and enjoy the great view of London with a glass of champagne. Our host was super friendly and we all enjoyed. Definitely a Must Do!
A brilliant experience! It's definitely worth having the priority access to avoid waiting in the long queues. Once we were in the capsule, it was wonderful to be able to enjoy a glass of champagne while admiring the glorious views of London in the sunshine. Our host was able to answer our questions and it's an experience I would thoroughly recommend to anyone visiting London.
We lucked out and had this entire capsule to ourselves. Magnus was our guide/server and was an incredibly pleasant person. He talked to us about some of the sites to be seen as well as recommendations on what to do with the time we had there. With some guides it can possibly get weird when it is a 1:1 but he was great.
