Select the day you wish to take both tours when you book. Then, when the time comes, collect your tickets and make your own way to both the London Eye and the cruise departure jetty.
London Eye Flight: Travel independently to the London Eye, one of London’s most iconic landmarks, on the south bank of the Thames River, and gaze up at the gigantic structure. Rising 442 feet (135 meters) high, the Eye is one of Europe’s tallest observation wheels and has welcomed an average 3.5 million people a year since opening in 2000.
Marvel at the panoramas over London’s skyline and admire landmarks such as Big Ben, St Paul’s Cathedral and more. On a clear day, the views can stretch up to 25 miles (40 kilometers) in each direction, so you’re in for a treat!
Thames River Sightseeing Cruise: Step onto your comfortable sightseeing boat. Find a spot on the outer, upper deck or the spacious lower saloon, and settle in for your cruise.
Have your camera ready as you sail by some of London’s best-known sights, and drink in the wonderful views of the river, its bridges and the north and south banks.
As you sail, listen to the interesting live commentary from the onboard guide. Learn the stories of the landmarks as they roll by.

Good value

Loved the Eye. Wish the cruise explained more sights, they seem to treat it like public transport with a few random sights pointed out.

The cruise and London Eye are magical, but I recommend doing this at the end of your trip, as opposed to day 1 like we did. It would have been nice to try and find all sites we'd seen from both the river and above London.
