Meet your experienced climbing guide and group of fellow thrill seekers.

Don’t be put off by the height!
, Sep 2021
Fantastic experience! Arrived at “Base Camp” 15 mins before ascent time, where the staff were very helpful and friendly. There was a lovely enthusiasm which made it more exciting. Once into the shoes and climbing harness you start the “climb”. The very first and last parts are steep but not too difficult, I am in recovery from a badly smashed ankle and I managed it ok. There is never really any sensation that you are very high, so if you’re afraid of heights, don’t worry! Ozzy our guide was amazing, helping a lady who had a panic about the height etc, he encouraged her every inch of the way and she would not have done it without him. His knowledge of the O2 and surrounding landmarks made the tour all the more interesting. The views from the top of the O2 were amazing, with plenty of time for photos and sightseeing. I recommend 100%!
Great trip over the O2

Nathan, our guide, was absolutely brilliant. We enjoyed our experience so much more because of his enthusiasm and knowledge. We have recommended this to our friends as it was so good. Nathan deserves a medal for his ability to join the whole group together and have fun. We will do it again. Many thanks for a great trip.
