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.
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.
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.
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
A great way to do the eye as there were only 12 people rather than 25.... Only get one glass of champagne though and could have had another.
A wonderful experience on the London Eye! We skipped a huge queue and sipped lovely glasses of champagne all while getting amazing views of London. Would highly recommend.
What a great experience! It was a sunny day on South Bank, but we got to walk past the really long queues and take the priority queue entrance. The ride is so smooth, and the experience of slowly rotating around and seeing different incredible London sites while sipping a glass of champagne is a real treat. Highly recommended!
Awesome! Sipping champagne while enjoying the beauty of London was a fab experience that I would highly recommend to everyone! And after I saw the queues for the regular tickets, I was so glad to have booked this ticket with Viator. I could just skip the lines with hardly any waiting time at all!
What a wonderful experience! I had been on the London Eye before, and adding champagne to the experience really enhanced the moment. The views from the capsule are very nice; you have the opportunity to appreciate the beauty of the city from many different angles. Moreover, you get to skip the long queues, which is a real treat in itself! To me, this is a must-do for visitors and London residents!
Fantastic views over London! Defiantly worth having priority as the ques in August is really long and champagne makes the ride even better! I would defiantly recommend to anyone!
Great tour!! We didn't have to wait in the long queue with the priority entrance. Our host was very friendly. It was just fantastic! Some champagne while you enjoy the view of London is a great combination. Definitely Must Do!
Great experience! Really enjoyed the great views from the London eye, and having champagne as part of the experience is definitely a big plus! Also it was great skipping the line, as there was a pretty long queue! Definitely recommend it!
A family emergency prevented us from taking this tour, i will rate it tops as we felt so badly to have missed it:-(
This was a beautiful experience! The check in desk is a little bit hard to find, if you are in the plaza in front of the London Eye looking at it, go into the building on your left, you'll see the entrance, after you go in the door go to your right and go all the way down to a desk directly in front of you, and your check in desk will be on your left, right in front of the cafe chairs. They will ask you to meet back in that area 15 minutes before loading time. Your guide will come get you and take you to get on, very easy and quick. Definitely go see the 4D experience film, it is really cool! We got there 30 minutes before our ticket time and it was plenty of time to see it, I actually wanted to see it again it was that good. There were 7 in our group and there were just a few other people in our capsule along with our guide who was great, he poured and served the adults champagne and offered our 10 and 13 yr olds juice or water. He took group pictures for us and answered questions, very sweet guy. The whole experience was extremely gorgeous!! After the loud traffic and heavy tourist crowds you will love this very quiet, cool and relaxing ride! We went at 8 PM, it was perfect! We all loved it!!
great experience, there was only 8 of us in the pod so had a perfect view on a perfect sunny evening with champagne
The London Eye is a must do if you are going to be visiting London. Gorgeous views and a very smooth ride. It does not feel like you are moving at all. The champagne servers were pleasant and helpful. The champagne was a nice touch, although we did not drink much of it as we were too busy enjoying the view! We also appreciated the photos of us on the London Eye that were available for purchase. We highly recommend this tour.
We really enjoyed this experience. No waiting in long lines, guide was wonderful. There were only 8 of us on this tour, so it had a cozy feeling and everybody had a good time. The view is spectacular; and the guide was wonderful. Answered all questions and even some random questions; she knew what she was doing and did it very well.
We enjoyed the whole experience, it was well organised and with no hick ups and on time.
myself and partner loved it on the London Eye would do it again, have told friends about it and they are booking up next year.
Absolutely the best! Great views, great company. Only complaint was that it was over too soon!
This is a terrific experience. If you are ever in London, you have to take it. We shared our capsule with only 4 other persons, so we were very comfortable and could move around without any worries of obstructed views. Even though it was cloudy, it was a beautiful view from all points.
