“Conference Pre-Dinner Tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

I took approximately 70 people on the wheel for a pre-dinner tour before a conference. What a fantastic way to show people the city centre and surrounding areas. It was a clear night and the we could see all the landmarks mentioned in the commentary including the welsh mountains.

“Amazing views of Liverpool-interesting thing to do”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Decided to do the Echo wheel with the girls on our day out. Last minute decided for the £20 bottle of champers to split between the 4 of us. Nice, clear sunny day so perfect weather for great view. I have to say was scared to death as not a great fan of heights. Felt the price was high for the time you get to spend. I think it was £8.50 pp and we were only on it for about 5-8 mins.
The pod was cozy and clean and afforded amazing views. The champers was nice and help eased the nerves. There is a voice led tour you can listen to but we chose not to.
Once off the ride, we were shown the picture which was taken preride and the packages were very high but we split it 4 ways and got the highest package £20!! We decided to embrace the moment as it was a special girls day out but if I came with my family, I wouldn't pay for any of that.
I felt it was a worthy experience, if not too short.

“All of a Spin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

We went on the wheel as part of a social occasion, and how enjoyable it was. Although not quite of the grandeur of the London Eye, its more compact size makes for a more intimate and enjoyable experience, affording spectacular views over Liverpool, especially at night. It's not hugely expensive, I think we had two revolutions which was quite adequate, and would strongly recommend it to any visitor to the city.
