London Eye Review
The walk up line to get on was probably a mile long. The Fastrack tickets are worth it to not wait in line that was well over an hour and probably closer to 2. We had a guide who took us to the Fastrack line and joined our small group of about 16 people on the Eye. He gave good information and facts on what were looking at and city information. Ride takes about 30 minutes to go around. The area where the Eye is located is very crowded and touristy.
Vintage Bus Tour
All the bus companies follow the same basic route as there are numerous companies doing the same thing. The Vintage bus tour was an "old school" looking double decker bus. Only complaint is sitting up top with the open top, the speaker is hard to hear the guide talking. I can tell you this bus was way less crowded as some of the other "Bigger Name Companies". We sat up top with a bench to our self the entire loop around. Other buses we saw were packed and noticed several stops the people waiting could not get on. Bus comes around to each stop about every 30 minutes. Go overview and main highlights of the city and worth it. We did not get off and just rode around the entire loop for the 2 hours. We found it easier to just get on the tube and go were you wanted when you were done faster than waiting for the bus or just walking there. Was about 18 stops total I think and hits all the main places in London you can think of.
Overall was a solid B+ to A-.
