Exactly what you would expect - The London Eye was great but a heads up that even after you book a timeslot, you will still have to wait a while to get on, we waited an hour after our reserved time. The rest is as expected, it was really nice to have drink and snack options on the river cruise!

Easy to use - Everyone made it easy to get on and off of the eye, the boat and the bus. A list of bus stop locations before we started would have made it easier to figure out where to catch a bus to start but once we were on the bus we got the information we needed.

Ricky Gervais on the cruise ship! - The guy on the cruise who gave us funny anecdotes on the buildings we were passing. He had a bit of a Ricky Gervais humour, very funny. Even made my kids laugh.

Don't bother with this one, too stressful! - I found this booking very average, it didn't deliver what it promotes. It's basically just prepaid tickets with no guidance, no organisation, no nothing. When I arrived at start destination noone knew anything about where to go, where to start or where anything ended. As for the cruise, that was just a complete waste of time. No one knew anything about this booking at all, When I asked staff if they could help me I was met with indifference and I was given the run around. Some staff were quite rude and most were disinterested. When I finally found where to go, and joined the very long queue thats where we remained for 3 very long, hot hours!!!! We stood in the heat and waited with no explanation, cruises came and went but we continued to wait, many people left, as they other bookings, some because they couldn't take any more waiting in the sun. Then to top things the cruise stopped with no planned return!!!! 😑 Took me 4 hours!! to find my way back🤦‍♀️

Not worth it - Honestly it’s not worth paying when you can take the public transportation. Plus I had a problem with the London eye ticket and they didn’t help me solve it.

Skip the hop on/hop off bus portion - London Eye and River Thames cruise were great, but I was incredibly disappointed in the hop on/hop off bus part of the tour. The “Big Bus Tours” app was very difficult to navigate and the employees who were not able to answer questions. Busses were not easily accessible or available. I would skip the bus part of this tour - it really was terrible.

Very bad - I couldn’t use this voucher. The bus company wanted a QR code and I couldn’t get it. I was on the bus with my friend showing them the confirmation number and was not allowed because they only accept QR code . I called no one answered. I didn’t get my money back as well! Don’t go buy from here .. it is trip advisor and then Viator and then the bus company and you will be lost with all and no one will take the responsibility.. be aware. Book directly with the companies
