All I can say is awesome! This was so worth the money. Not just for the view and the ride, but we did not have to wait on a queue which was up to 2 hours long!!! Even the Fast Track lines were an hour long! We cut all the lines and went on right away, only about 12 people in the pod with us, had champagne and my 8 year old daughter had delicious orange juice as we enjoyed the wheel. My husband who is deathly afraid of heights went on anxiously and nervously, but he was totally not affected by this ride. Even if you are afraid of heights, you can totally do this. Our personal guide, Ali, was a pleasure to have on board. He was an adorable university student so full of life and all smiles and so pleasant. We will definitely do this ride again the next time we are back in London next summer.
This option is great to have a good time on the London Eye, which is usually hectic, but with the champagne experience you get a really special treatment.
It was such a great experience and our tour guide Rae was fabulous! Although I was surprised that they let kids go on the Champagne experience that was a little strange.
Terrific experience, nice to have appointed time and champagne to enjoy the views!
Beautiful way to see London!!! Champagne was good, staff was very helpful and efficient and the views were incredible.
I would highly recommend booking the London Eye: Champagne Experience. The line were particularly long on the day we visited, however we were able to go right into the ticket office, confirm our booking, and head to the Champagne lounge to wait for our scheduled time. The small group in the tour meant a much more comfortable experience once aboard the ride. This is a must do.
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.
