What people are saying about Berkshire

I was picked up at the right time and our narrator for my tour Trish was nice and she gave us the full history of Windsor & Eton Riverside. She even got us ready to take pictures before approaching some buildings like the Windsor Castle, the Cathedral & riverside. She spared her time to take my picture too and everyone likes the picture. She got to know where we came from and showed us where to take the boat if we had paid for it and where to eat. I had a fabulous time on the Hop-on Hop-off open Top Bus Tour and I hope to go back soon. It’s worth more than the price.

The bus tour was very good. It took us around the castle, through Eton and into Windsor Castle Farm Shop. We were told many interesting facts about the Castle and Eton. I would definitely recommend this bus tour.

Booked online and noticed that we needed to take our own headphones. Glad we did as it does make a difference. Pleasant way to spend an hour and nice to sit down after visiting the castle.

We ran out of time so didnt get on the bus until last ride at 4pm. Grateful it was true to schedule or we would have missed out! The drivers were wonderful, friendly, and helpful!

We were really lucky to have a live guide who gave us some very interesting facts about Windsor on our tour. Lovely, friendly staff.
