What are people saying about London Eye

Worthwhile experience for views above London
Excellent experience. Lots of space at reception. Clean toilets in the main building and plenty of them thereby avoiding any queuing. For a small fee we were able to use left luggage for our suitcase. Although downloading from the Viator app to Apple Wallet clearly states 2 adults the people admitting is on the London Eye requested to see two individual tickets. Downloading the pdf of the different views helped us pinpoint local landmarks.

Highly recommended tour!
Great visit of Westminster Abby with our very knowledgeable tour guide Lucy! Lots of valuable explanations provided. Ample time to see the church and take photos. We were accompanied safely to the London Eye, which was also memorable.
