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.

Our tour with Guy was perfect. He did a wonderful job showing our group so many interesting things - and even directed us to a spot where we saw Prince William in the practice for the Platinum Jubilee parade. Would highly recommend Guy and this tour.
