Oh how I loved this tour. We had a great tour guide, Jose. We were able to see two great castles/palaces and experience history. While Windsor castle is beautiful and full of friendly guides, the true winner for me was Hampton Court. The experience was beyond fantastic. There were actors who guided us through the history and experiences of the Palace. The actors were excellent and interacted brilliantly with the group. If there is one must see while in London, I'd recommend Hampton Court.
Very fun tour. Both are very different. Drink wine from fountain at Hampton court and get lost in its hedge maze.
This was a great day - the ladies were informative, friendly and the tour was comprehensive. The timing was good too-we had plenty of time at each of the stops. And you get a little tour around London as well, which was a good introduction to London.
Jose was an excellent guide with lots of added information and never made you feel hurried.
Wanted to see Windsor for a long time and enjoyed. Didn't make a wise decision for lunch in the pub right across from castle, however.
Hampton Court was a good tour but harder to fit the pieces together between the two dynasties that built there. Wish there had been a castle plan with an overlay in red of the reconstructed/renovated areas. But loved seeing it.
Brilliant tour and tour guide Debbie. Highly recommend this company for London. Plenty of time to really explore each place. 10/10!!!!!
A lovely tour packed with lots of things to entertain you for the entire day.
Pretty relaxing tour, many information from very knowlegable guide and enough time in both places!
A great day tour to do. Well balanced with time allocated to each good. Could possibly have done without the 45 minute London Highlights part first and added that time onto Windsor to allow for seeing the village and shops there. Claudia our guide was great.
Very nice trip, experienced guide and plenty of time to explore the objectives. I am very happy with the service, will recommend this trip anytime!
Very enjoyable and our guide Sheila was just terrific. Everything worked out well and she and Mark did a great job of maneuvering through heavy traffic, and also letting us off near our hotel and at a spot where we could immediately get a cab. I'd give it 5 stars.
Windsor Castle was fantastic. Hampton Court was also interesting!
Great way to see both places in one day and everything taken care of.
I had a wonderful day out with Cosette (tour guide) and the tour operators. I can highly recommend this tour. Cosette also used our time on the bus to provide everyone with extra information about these historic sites and other places as we passed by. Not all tour guides use this time so effectively and her efforts were greatly appreciated.
Had a wonderful time. Everyone was really helpful and friendly. Staff is quite knowledgeable. Thanks for a great trip.
excellent tour very good guide with lots of knowledge and would recommend to friends
Sheila was our guide and she was the best we had on all the day trips we did. If you are a fan of Henry VIII this is the trip for you as he is buried at Windsor Castle and Hampton Court was his favorite palace. Sheila told us so much about the history on the entire trip to and from the castle and palace and gave a wonderful tour of Hampton Court with plenty of free time at both places to enjoy some dining in the cafes by Windsor and the cafe in Hampton Court.
I purchased this tour to see Hampton Court Palace and I was not disappointed! This castle is incredible, huge and impressive. I especially loved the kitchen tour and the folks dressed in Tudor style costumes wandering around. Lunch at the cafe was delicious. While the tour was self-guided, I could have used more time simply to soak up the ambiance. Maybe a longer tour of just Hampton Court.
Kensington Palace was also delightful. More of a modern palace but knowing Princess Diana lived here and William and Kate would soon live here gave it a different feel for me. Our tour guide Sheila was delightful - not too corny, very funny. Good tour!
