What You Can Expect

Windsor Independent Day Trip from London with Private Driver

Changing of the Guard at Windsor Castle

Depart from your centrally located London hotel in a private, luxury vehicle and get acquainted with your personal driver on the scenic drive to Windsor. Customize your itinerary during a discussion with your driver and then set out to discover the sights you wish to see. 

Perhaps, visit the town’s most prominent attraction, Windsor Castle, an official residence of Her Majesty the Queen cradled by rolling green hills. Venture within the opulent chambers of the castle and see the decadent State Chambers and St George’s Chapel. Amble around the 13-acre grounds and then return to your vehicle to see a special ceremony. 

Head into the town center to see the daily Changing of the Guard ceremony, a colorful performance in which vibrantly dressed soldiers march to the rhythm of military drums. Watch the traditional show in awe and then head to Windsor Great Park to admire the symmetrical rows of trees and bright flowerbeds on a leisurely stroll of the Long Walk. 

Opt to travel to Eton, a historical town home to the prestigious Eton College, and browse the artisan boutiques of the area. Alternatively, choose to see the proximate town of Runnymede to visit the site upon which King John sealed the Magna Carta in 1215. 

Relax during the journey back to London and enjoy the convenience of drop-off at your hotel.

A wonderful tour. Ahmed, our guide, was prompt, knowledgeable, and very patient. Because of the large crowds we were delayed but he behaved as if we had all day. His grasp of the history of all UK was very impressive and he took the time to take us around Windsor to see what is not normal fare for tourists. We loved him and would recommend Viatour to all.

Our trip to Windsor Castle was great! Our driver Dusko Vujnovic was very professional. He drove us around the Castle area as well the Eton College area and was very informative about these places. Loved seeing the Castle, St George's Chapel, the grave of Henry VIII as well as all the places going out to and returning from the castle. Would recommend this trip to others!.Definitely a must see!

Der gesamte Ausflug dauert ca. 4- 5 Stunden. Der sehr freundliche und hilfreiche Fahrer hat uns auf Hin- und Rückfahrt wissenswerte Hinweise und viele Tipps für London und Windsor gegeben. Mit einem vorausgebuchten Ticket, z.B. im London-Pass enthalten, bleibt Wartezeit an der Kasse erspart, somit hat man viel Gelegenheit das Schloss und seine Umgebung mit dieser privaten und bequemen Tour zu genießen.

We had a wonderful day with a great driver. He was on time, and very knowledgeable. He didn't rush us, and he gave us the opportunity to see places we would have never seen if not for him. I'd recommend this trip to everyone!

Our driver, Ahmed, did a good job of getting us up to the door of the castle in a driving rainstorm, and later taking us through Eton.
