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.
We enjoyed fabulous views in total comfort. I could have gone round twice.

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.
Great experience, very accommodating for families.
