The problem with pre booking is that you can't guarantee the weather but I wouldn't be put off by this as we visited on a cloudy day and the whole experience was outstanding. The loos with a view were amazing too !
Fantastic trip - The Shard is the best tall building I have been up - tops Melbourne, Paris and New York!
We were lucky that there were no queues and we had a lovely sunny day so the views were amazing.
Champagne was tasty too! Staff were friendly.
The only issue I had was trying to book a slot as was indicated in our e mail and on the ticket. It stated that we should call the Shard but they said they did not book 3rd parties and referred us back to Viator. Viator did sort me out but only after holding on for 35 mins for an operator.
Excellent. Go 30 minutes before sunset to appreciate the lights and watch the moon rise over Tower Bridge, if you're lucky like we were. Very professionally run, polite, efficient staff. The gift shop is good too.
It was fabulous, and booking with Viator saved us money. The champagne was delicious.
Best rate I have found online, we had a great time. Thank you Viator!
I could only go on an overcast day. It was still an amazing building to see.

I've been on this tour three times and always enjoy being able to view the London area
We went to a special line and got our tickets. We then went upstairs, had our champagne, and had a marvelous time.
Fantastic! We booked for Monday but we popped in to redeem the ticket on Sunday afternoon... Ended up they allowed us to enter straight away... We enjoyed the view very much, clear sunny day The following day we relax without rushing and took a train to Gatwick Airport from our hotel. Appreciate the flexibility very much. Thank you
Yes..this is a must do tour..
And get the tour before..

Beautiful views and got a great mental map of London after previously struggling to determine which attractions are on which side of the Thames! Lovely quiet atmosphere inside and very friendly staff.
It was great to arrive at the Shard and not have to join a huge line due to our pre booking with Viator. A very enjoyable experience.
We left on a clear sunny day only to find the Shard covered in mist. We went up and couldn't see a thing! but the Shard gave us another voucher to use within the next three months which was very kind of them and we hopefully will appreciate the view at a later day but the service and building itself were great.
The weather did not cooperate the day I went. The visibility was very poor but what I did see was fantastic. So if I return to London next year I will make a return trip to the Shard. This time I will wait for a good day and then buy a ticket.
The View from the Shard is spectacular. We went on Nov 11th and were there for the moment of silence at 11 am. Looking down at the wonderful Poppy Exhibit at the Tower was very special. Don't miss the chance to see the view from both viewing floors at the Shard.

This is an amazing new way to see London - particularly the 'old favorites' like Tower Bridge, The Tower of London, St Pauls and 'the Gherkin'. It's well set up for visitors and lots of information on what you're actually seeing can be provided by the resident Tour Guides.
It was beautiful, weather spoilt quite a bit of the view, very organized, great idea to have champagne at the top, loved it
So glad that I made time for this during my stay in London. The views from the top were absolutely incredible. I was pleasantly surprised when I realized that the top floor had an open-air public viewing platform. I would also recommend everyone to book this ahead of time as it's more expensive to buy tickets at the attraction.
