      Top day out!!! Rebecca you rock!!!
      What a fun experience!!! We were both really excited but also very nervous. Our guide Rebecca was absolutely brilliant!! Such a lovely lady and even humoured us when we called her teacher!! Haha. For us she made the experience, we chatted and joked all throughout the climb. Would definitely recommend this experience and I look forward to coming back with my children. Thanks Rebecca you rock!!!! Keeley & Georgia xxxx

      Exhilarating London climb
      We had a great time climbing over the o2. It was a beautiful sunny morning to see all the sights. Our guide Scarlet was fantastic, she was knowledgable and had an infectious enthusiastic personality ensuring we had fun all the way. It is very well organised activity, and we had the opportunity to borrow jackets, shoes and gloves. We definitely needed the shoes as it was slippery on the way down. I would highly recommend this for a fun 90 minutes in East London.

      Great experience
      Excellent visit. Friendly and fun staff. Karl (with a K) was brilliant, knowledgeable and patient making the experience a really good one. It doesn’t feel high as you have the dome underneath you (if that makes sense). Please reduce the cost of one of your photos if you can!

      Birthday surprise with family - lovely experience! It’s a bit more strenuous than I expected but worth it! Shoes and jackets provided that are clean. Your guide Robin was lovely and knowledgeable!

      Lots of fun!
      Would 100% a climb up at the O2 the staff were very friendly and accommodating especially as we were running late thanks to lots of underground closures. They were very understanding and put us at ease. The climb was lots of fun and the instructors are all an asset to the company. Freya on our climb was brilliant and had us smiling.

      Best experience will definitely be going again!!
      Our climb guide was Karl and he made our experience 1000x better! We climbed the o2 yesterday and it was such a fun and memorable experience that we will definitely do again. The weather wasn’t on our side but if anything it actually made it more funny and memorable. Karl was absolutely amazing at leading us up to climb the o2, what a funny and genuine person. His customer service was top notch! He started by going through the safety with us and then helped us get into our harnesses ready to climb. Not only did he explain everything perfectly to us he also just went the extra mile to make sure we enjoyed the experience even with the weather circumstances not being what we hoped for. I really do recommend this experiment and when we go back to climb the o2 in nicer weather I am asking for Karl to be our climb leader again.

      Climb to see London lit up
      Something different! Dress for the weather, although items are provided if needed. Good safety gear and a friendly instructor who was willing to take pics at the top for us. We undertook the twilight climb, great to see London lit up. Underestimated the steep bit at the start and end but it wasn't a problem. Took about 90 mins with the safety talk and kitting out, etc.

      Birthday climb
      Me and my daughter took the climb for her 10th birthday and our guides were Karl (with a K, he’s very passionate about it) and Scarlett. They put everyone at ease and were patient right from the beginning, they made my daughter feel so special as it was her birthday and went the extra mile to get everyone to sing happy birthday to her whilst we were at the top. Thank you so much for everything

      Great experience!
      Came here recently with friends for this experience. Karl and Karim were great guides - positive and funny throughout, and helpful to those in the group that needed more support. A great view of London awaits at the top, perfect for some photo opportunities! Overall, we had a great experience, would recommend!

    Incredible experience thanks to Karl!! We did the sunset climb on a wet and windy evening and it didn’t spoil the experience at all. Karl was so patient with my youngest child and kept us entertained and safe all the way up and down the O2. We couldn’t have asked for more from our guide. Great birthday experience for our 12 year old!

    Came as a member of staff supervising a school trip and we went on our climb with Karl (with a K) who was absolutely fantastic. We had some very nervous students and he was so accommodating and patient with them. An absolute asset to the company.
    Thanks again Karl!

    Max our guide was great - energetic, knowledgeable, humorous, took photos for us etc. Bit of a steep climb but there were some retired people on the same tour as us who all made it up, no one’s in a rush. The views are great although a little hampered now by some of the boring developments and hotels that have been built around the O2. Definitely worth a visit though

    I bought this a birthday gift for a good friend and we went last weekend

    This is good and I recommend it but it’s dependent on the weather and clearly had we traveled from Manchester especially only for it to be cancelled it would be disappointing and I’m not sure that their cancellation policy is good enough

    The experience was really good, the guide helpful and informative

    On a negative note there’s seems to be an issue with the harnesses and shoes they provide not being returned to the staff and there were a number of announcements that seemed to imply that nobody would get there own shoes and values back from safe keeping until every harness had been returned. This concerned me and I doubt it’s legal - why am I responsible for others not returning harnesses? Maybe it was an awkward choice of words or maybe I misinterpreted those words but it needs work…

    The whole experience was amazing with wonderful views and think we experienced every weather possible but with our instructor Karl, he made the whole thing enjoyable. He was very knowledgeable, talkative and gave clear safety guidance. He was so funny and is such a credit to the team!!

    Our experience with Up at The O2 Climb was nothing short of incredible! We were fortunate that the storm ended just in time for our climb, allowing us to enjoy clear skies and breathtaking views. The climb itself was exhilarating, and our guide Johnny was friendly and knowledgeable, adding to the enjoyment. Highly recommend this adventure, especially if luck is on your side with the weather!

    P.S. Despite the new buildings, the classic charm of London's skyline remains breathtaking from atop The O2!
