We had nice weather since we had booked an 11 am appointment. The views were breath taking and clear. It's about a half hour ride and the kids had loads of fun. The process was easy and highly recommend purchasing tickets ahead of time since it's the same price.

A wonderful experience! But one thing could have been clearer, the time we booked by telephone for our fast track flight turned out not to be binding. Had we known this, we would have boarded even earlier than we did.
This is a must-do! Even though it was somewhat overcast on the day of our flight, the experience was amazing!
This was a great ride with wonderful views of the city. We were scheduled for 2pm and we got there at about 1. The queue to pick up your actual ticket took about 15 minutes and then we got in line for the ride. The lines look long but they move rather quickly. Unless maybe its a weekend or holiday, I wouldn't think you need to pay the extra to skip the lines.
Our kids totally loved it, we both thought it was an experience not to be missed. You haven't seen London until you've seen it from the London Eye.
The London Eye offers incredible views of the city. I'd highly recommend it!
We booked for 10.30am and arrived 40 minutes early, there was no queue so they let us on. It was a great experience and we are going to do it again sometime.
We turned up 30 minutes early but were let on early. I advise to go early before 10:30 am as there were no lines. Great way to see London of where you have been and where you are heading to.
We all loved the London Eye. Luckily the weather was perfect.
We did the last revolution of 2007 with a glass of champaign to celebrate. This was a very special occasion. Well worth doing.
Gave a completely different angle to London - the views are stunning and, as someone who does not like heights and was rather afraid, it banished all of that. I felt perfectly safe and just loved finding out what the different buildings were. I would not hesitate to do it again! I was very pleased to have chosen the fast track when I saw the queues, even though they move quickly.
Discovery is much better than regular admission! With the Discovery admission you get a personal host that will talk to you about each site you can see from the London Eye. Also, Discovery flights have very few people so you will have much more room in your capsule!
It was wonderful. Our flight was at dusk. The view was absolutely gorgeous.

Well organized and great views. Attendants are polite and helpful. Be sure to read your online confirmation as you don't have a specific time reserved. You have to call to actually reserve a time. Person on phone very helpful. Recommend you take the Eye river cruise - very worthwhile.
I have been on it in the day but at night it was fantastic.

I thought I had messed up badly as I didn't see the part on the voucher about calling 48 hours in advance to schedule a time for the ride. I called the reservations desk in the morning and was able to get a ride that afternoon. The staff were very nice and helpful. The London Eye was very, very cool! The views and the engineering of the structure are amazing. We took the Thames River cruise combo. The cruise was so-so; it ended up being shortened because of the tide, so we couldn't make it under the bridge to Parliament. But overall, it's not a bad combo as the dock is literally right next the the Eye, which is very convenient.
It was absolutely worth every cent we spent! Do it, do it, do it!
We had limited time in London, so we thought the fast track was well worthwhile. We were taken straight on, avoiding a very long queue, and had only eight people in our capsule. The views were fantastic - so good we all wanted to go around again.
Brilliant choice, fantastic flight. A must-do in London.
