Very impressive. Excellently organised we got a table in the window as it was my husbands 60th birthday and the taff were very accommodating. Tea was lovely and the time spent was also excellent really enjoyed the whole experience

It was very easy to get our tickets scanned and board. The views from the eye were spectacular, you could see so mich of the city.

Ask for a window seat and prey for good weather - excellent trip! We loved it!

Best way to see sights in comfort with lunch provided. Great value
