Select the day you wish to take both tours when you book. Then, when the time comes, collect your tickets and make your own way to both the London Eye and the cruise departure jetty.

London Eye Flight: Travel independently to the London Eye, one of London’s most iconic landmarks, on the south bank of the Thames River, and gaze up at the gigantic structure. Rising 442 feet (135 meters) high, the Eye is one of Europe’s tallest observation wheels and has welcomed an average 3.5 million people a year since opening in 2000.

Marvel at the panoramas over London’s skyline and admire landmarks such as Big Ben, St. Paul’s Cathedral and more. On a clear day, the views can stretch up to 25 miles (40 kilometers) in each direction, so you’re in for a treat!

Thames River Sightseeing Cruise: Step onto your comfortable sightseeing boat. Find a spot on the outer, upper deck or the spacious lower saloon, and settle in for your cruise.

Have your camera ready as you sail by some of London’s best-known sights, and drink in the wonderful views of the river, its bridges, and the north and south banks.

As you sail, listen to the interesting live commentary from the onboard guide. Learn the stories of the landmarks as they roll by.

Experiencing the London Eye with Family

This was a great experience visiting the London Eye. The only hassle about visiting was the back and forth of where to get the tickets for the sightseeing. Other than that my family and I enjoyed ourselves.

Slowly ascending the London Eye gives you a very unique perspective of London and it’s various boroughs. Fantastic views from all sides of the unexpectedly large, pill-shaped Lexan pods. Don’t miss the experience!

Loved the Eye. Wish the cruise explained more sights, they seem to treat it like public transport with a few random sights pointed out.

The cruise and London Eye are magical, but I recommend doing this at the end of your trip, as opposed to day 1 like we did. It would have been nice to try and find all sites we'd seen from both the river and above London.

We had seen the ques days before so we arrived early and We waited for hours in a que we were told to form. Waited from 8am until opening at 11am only for the que to be opened up 30 people behind us. The tour organisers where not sympathy or understanding at all. We were mislead by staff and so disappointed by the attitude of staff we left the ride after it broke down before our turn. Will not return

Had an excellent weekend in London with friends. The highlight was the London Eye and the Boat trip to Greenwich, you see so much of the beautiful city. We were very lucky with our weather which I am sure adds to the pleasure. I would highly recommend doing both of these trips if visiting London.

Cruising down the Thames River enabled us to see London in a unique way. The tour guides have a sense of humor. We were able to get at one stop, see the sites and then get back on for the ride back. This was nice. The London Eye I could have lived without. I felt it was overrated.

Awesome, highly recommend! I loved the fact that you just pick up your tickets then you're on your own. The only downside was that I thought the London Eye ticket was skip the line but that was totally my misunderstanding. The line wasn't too bad though. The ride on the Eye is smooth and the views are spectacular. The Thames river cruise was awesome too. We were able to use the cruise all day to go back and forth between Tower, Westminster and London Eye Piers, very convenient!
