Full description

Start your journey with a ride on a luxury air conditioned bus from Central London to Windsor Castle. Travel to Windsor Castle and visit the stunning state apartments, admire the gigantic, incredibly detailed Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House.

Next, move on to see St George’s Chapel which is the resting place of Henry VIII and other monarchs. Nestled atop a hill in a charming market town, Windsor Castle was founded by William the Conqueror in the 11th century. Then, make your way over to the magnificent Hampton Court Palace by bus. Be dazzled by the spectacular Chapel Royal, the grandeur of the Great Hall, and Henry VIII’s kitchens. Wander through the palace’s beautiful gardens and try not to get lost in the world’s oldest puzzle maze. Dating back to the 16th century, the palace is most famously linked to the dramatic lives and loves of Henry VIII and his wives. Hampton Court Palace is a visual treat for visitors and this royal venue promises to be an unforgettable experience. Upon entry to Hampton Court, receive a warm welcome and introduction from a guide in periodic costume. You will then be taken back to the original meeting point in Central London where the tour will end.

Very nice tour. The guide was good, the bus comfortable, the time given at each stop was good. They could increase efficiency by having the entry tickets with the guide and handed out on the bus. We lost time at each stop because the guide had to go and fetch the tickets.

Eileen our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about history, royal family, among other topics. Hampton Court was fantastic and we had plenty of time to explore. Windsor Castle was quite crowded but enjoyed St George Chapel. The driver Amresh was quite expert at guiding us safely on the journey.

Fabulous tour…,lovely clean bus with plenty of room & air conditioning…our tour guide Tish was very accommodating and our driver Saab was so nice. We were able to board the coach and not worry about traffic or timing of arrival. We had plenty of time at both Hampton Court & Windsor Castle. Great combination.
