Beautiful without a doubt. I was VERY DISAPPOINTED in the journey. We were supposed to have a private coach/van accommodating about pick us up at our hotel. I received an email before we left Canada that the pick up point had been changed to Victoria Coach Station, which was fine as we were right there, but it wasn't a private van it was a full size. That really annoyed me. That's not what I paid for. But in the mean time, Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace are incredible to see. Just a note, there is full on airport type security at the entrances of both sites. So there is a slow line up to get in, but that's to be expected these days I guess.

The palace tour was excellent
It was great to see all the palace from the inside
We were a bit disappointed with the wait in line at Windsor castle it took nearly an hour to get in and then we didn't have enough time inside
We were under the impression that it was a skip the line tour
But once we were in it was great

Wonderful tour of Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace. Both of them are beautiful and rich in history, I would highly recommend the tour to anyone interested in English history or would like to take a sticky beak into the homes of the royals.

One of my "top 3" highlights of our 5 weeks away from home through Europe, UK and Dubai. The palaces were incredible, and visited in the correct order - Windsor then Buckingham. Guide, Paul, was truly excellent, as was the coach driver, Terry - on Sat 28 Sept 2013. Both were genuinely humourous and most informative.

Short Day trip outside of London to see Windsor Castle. Than back to London for Buckingham Palace. The guide was friendly and nice. Well worth it!

Well organised. Pickup at our hotel was exactly on time. The tour guide on the way to Windsor Castle was very knowledgable and very witty. The time allocated at Windsor was adequate to cover all aspects of the tour. Buckingham Palace, as expected, was very crowded, although, with individual tour guide headsets, we were able to tour at our own pace. It made sense to not have a return transfer to our hotel, as everyone would have been finishing the tour at different times. It was a most enjoyable and informative day.

Our guide's name on this tour was Alan. Information and jokes to and from both places. When we arrived to Windsor Castle, he made sure that we were the first group to go first.(we hurried, but we were first.)

By far the highlight of our trip! If you like history, this is the tour to take. So much history contained within the walls of these two venues and we made the most of it. Both have audio tours which give so much information on the history and back story of these two institutions. Both are so impressive in their own ways. Be prepared, big crowds should be expected at both places but should not deter visitors from enjoying these two British must sees.

This was a very interesting and wonderful tour. Not only did we see the beautiful Windsor Castle but also the changing of the guards. Being able to visit inside Buckingham Palace was was fantastic. It was everything you would expect the Palace to be. I would highly recommend this tour.
