Amazing view
Jul 2021 • Family
Beautiful place to visit, especially with the family and it’s so cheap that it only cost you £4 one way. Amazing staff particularly Philip was very helpful and went even extra miles to help my parents, he also help us a lot of place to visit thanks you.

Interesting attraction, fun for the kids
Jun 2021 • Family
We had a go for a ride while we were visiting London. We reached Greenwich by boat ( combined our trip with a boat trip and cable car lift) Be aware the boat stops in Greenwich Pier, so you need to take a bus to North Greenwich station. Then 5 min walk to the cable car lift. There was a queue as the staff do not allow mixing with other people in one cabin. So even if there is one person, he/she takes the whole cabin for themselves. The price for a single ride for a child is £2 and adults can pay by using their Oyster card. Make sure you tap when you board and then again on your arrival! The journey takes about 10min. I liked the view towards O2, the rest is just a construction and residential area. It’s nice for one off.

Breathtaking experience at Greenwich Emirates Air Line
Jun 2021 • Friends
All started when the customer assistant, a middle aged man with curly hair if I am not wrong, put a big smile on our faces by trying to speak with us in our own language and overall giving off the holiday vibe. That is what we wish to see everywhere. Thank you for this unforgettable and experience where it seemed to have happened in a second due to being so thrilled.
The scenery don’t do justice to it.😍
Mulțumim!!!!🇲🇩

Brilliant experience

Brilliant views across London-an exhilerating experience but possibly not for those who don't like heights. Well organised.

Went to the emirates cable car after it went viral on tiktok and despite it being a short ride, Marc who was working there made it a lovely experience. Very friendly and put a big smile on all of our faces. Deserves pay rise!

FANTASTIC

I arrived without proof of my pre booked tickets. The manager who was named Sandra was amazing and although she did her utmost to help me find the confirmation of my booking on my phone still processed tickets for my father and I without charge. I can not express how brilliant she was, so trusting as I had no proof of my purchase. We thanked her for giving such amazing service. I tried to give her a tip but she said she couldn’t possibly accept and was more than happy to help. What a professional and great girl to have working within your company. Thanks for a great experience on your cable car. I would highly recommend the attraction and also if you are lucky you may get to meet the lovely Sandra.

Sadly today we arrived to hopeful to travel for the first time on the cable car...unfortunately it wasn't working due to a fault...nobodys fault..just technical...but we hadn't seen any warning on the website...otherwise we would never have travelled all the way to London especially..really, really disappointed..maybe a large warning on their website next time its closed??

More hype than reality
Jun 2021
The good: the ride was smooth and the views were good.
The not so good: organisation at the ticket office was non existant. Even though there were plenty of staff around none were directing people or assisting the long queue for tickets, nor did any bother to open any other sales window to speed things through. There was a rubimentary queing system but the ropes and post had gaps in them so people were queing in all directions. Information posted was confusing and misleading with signs prominent 'selling' premium tickets for packaged experiences that were really pretty expensive. It took some persuasion at the window to actually get a simple return flight ticket at £8. That's all it should cost you.
It's quick. Didn't time it but having got in the air and taken a couple of photos we were dropping back to the ground. I'd guess 3 to 4 minutes max.
Unless you are really bored and stuck for things to do, wouldn't really recommend it.

Great Views of London for a Great Price
Jun 2021 • Family
We visited as 2 adults, 1 teenager and 2 pre teens. Service on the ticket desk was great. The view of London was incredible and it was a great price too. Would definitely recommend this over the London Eye which was about 4 times the cost!!!!!
