A trip not to be missed. As with all interesting locations you could always do with more time.
Windsor Castle is amazing and Buckingham Palace is something else again.
A good tour leader and coach driver added to the enjoyment of the day
Interesting and informative. It was really good to have background information on Kate's dress! Great guide.
the tour was great. no waiting in line. Paul was a fantastic guide. lots of time in buckingham palace, could have used a bit more time in windsor castle though.
Bus picked us up at the appointed time and guide quite pleasant and knowledgeable. All went well until we attempted to locate our guide and bus to return us to our hotel at the end of the tour; neither could be located and we found it necessary to get back on our own. Even though we should have known from the description stating "hotel pickup" with no mention of return, it would have been helpful if the guide had stated this fact.
This would have been a five start reviewe except that the local vendor did not communicate to his tour guide well. The guide who took us to Windsor and back was excellant. However, he did not know the name of the guide who was to provide our afternoon tickets to Buckingham She had no idea where to meet us, was 15 minutes late and did not know exactly what tour we were taking. So, skip the loine a wait on a totally incompetent who got us entry but never tickets, knew nothing about the tour or where we would end up. and then took off without so much as a "cheerio"!
This tour, Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace is well worth doing. Both sites were amazing in their own right. By doing the tour it was great to skip the lines at the gates. It would have been good to have had an audio guide for Windsor Castle. I thought our guide was taking us through however we were sent off alone once inside and no guide. Still worth attendance.
We loved London. It was a city rich in history and very interesting.
Good trip! More time at Windsor would have been nice. Getting to go inside Buckingham Palace was nice.
Very interesting! Pay attention when booking tours tho'. Got two trips to Windsor Castle (my own fault) and probably would have booked differently if I had been paying more attention!
The trip to Windsor Castle was great. We arrived early and avoided the queues. However, we were dropped off two hours early at Buckingham Palace and were told to wait for our guide. He was late and simply walked us to the entrance. It would have been quicker to have gone on our own.
