What people are saying about The London Eye

Be sure to book online beforehand, everything worked perfectly. An insider tip: Pay attention to high and low tide when booking, this is not mentioned anywhere, but can be very relevant, because at high tide you can see the sights better. Small drawback, we had booked German, but it was ultimately in English. Otherwise really great.

This was a great activity, loved all the high speed twists and turns . They staff were all very friendly and helpful. I sat at the back of the boat and at times it was hard to Hear the recorded commentary of the London landmarks we past . But I didn’t mind

It was very organised and good clear understanding of what to expect staff were lovely
