What people are saying about Windsor
What a wonderful tour to get outside the city of London. We had a lovely gentleman and about 6 other people in the group to take the train from London to Windsor. I truly believe the guide makes or breaks an activity and our guide was very knowledgeable. As far as his task, he met us at the train station, talked to us on the train, and walked around Windsor briefly before sending us on our merry way inside the Windsor Castle. From there, you have an audio guide of the castle and estate. Very nice! Took about 2 hours and then we had time to explore the surrounding area. We had an open ending train ticket back to London which was nice to know that there was time to spare in order to enjoy the quaint area. Plenty of shops and restaurants to enjoy. Had such a lovely time there that I would even consider staying in that area if traveling to London again!
This trip was run with high energy, which was what was needed to see all 3 sites. Although it was an 11-hour day, there was a great mix of down time on the bus and activity at the locations. The guide Tom was super-knowledgeable and very likeable, and the driver (Andy?) was great. The technology provided (radio and audio guide) worked flawlessly and enabled perfect communication. Tom did a bi-lingual tour and he was very comfortable in both languages. I would highly recommend this tour and this team.
Our guide, Rowen, was amazing. She had a unique sense of humor which overrode the gloomy weather. We learned a lot during the tour. She was very friendly and interesting. The children (age 13+) also enjoyed. The driver, Jane, drove very carefully so we felt safe. It was just not clear at the beginning where the exact meeting point was, so we had to phone a representative, which was a bit stressful although we arrived half an hour before time.
It was easy to meet our guide and board the train to Windsor. The castle was very interesting and many parts were beautiful. I liked the fact we could go back in our own time. We walked around the town and ate in a delightful restaurant on the river. We walked to Eaton College and enjoyed the whole day.
So impressive to be allowed so much access to this unique castle, it's full of so many interesting items and comprehensive details of history, felt so privileged to have been able to spend as much time absorbing the feel and surroundings on offer. The changing of the guard was very impressive.
