Our drive out to Windsor Castle was very nice and not very long from London. The castle grounds were lovely as well as the surrounding village. Unfortunately St. George's Chapel was closed on the day of our visit as well as Queen Mary's Doll house. Our audio guide inside the state "apartments" was very informative. These rooms were not apartments as Americans would call them but rather formal state rooms for entertaining. I am glad I did visit overall.

It was a nice trip to Windsor Castle from London on Sunday, November 11. The weather was nice. Arrived at Windsor Castle in approximately one hour. The coach driver was friendly and helpful, he helped us obtain the admission passes into Windsor Castle, and told us to return to the coach park at 4:30 in the afternoon to return to London. I just did not know his name, I am sure he introduced to everyone on the coach. He pointed out some places of interests along the way to Windsor Castle and return to Victoria Coach Station. I spent several hours exploring Windsor castle and photographing, it is a beautiful castle. The day trip was pleasant and relaxing. I would book the same day trip to Winsor Castle with transport next year, thank you so much !!!

All went well and had a great time at Windsor. The only thing I would like to see changed is the time of departure. We felt rushed as some buildings closed at earlier times so instead of a 12:30 departure from London an 11:30 or so would have made things a lot better. But very glad we made this trip with Golden Tours via Viator

Windsor Castle itself is well worth the effort and a must do if you have never been. However, the Golden Tours trip we booked through Viator left a lot to be desired. First, the departure point is hard to find as opposed to other tours we have taken that left from Victoria Coach Station. More importantly the tour left 20 minutes late which cut into our time at the Castle. There was no explanation from Golden. There was no communication from our driver, and no guide so it is just a bus ride out to the Castle.

This tour was great, we really enjoyed the tour, we did have 1 hiccup with getting into Windsor Castle, but i didn't think it was the driver/guild faulty i think it was the staff at the castle. This tour is well worth doing.

It was a good trip and the local tour company (Golden Tours) provided reliable instructions on how and where to meet for the tour. The driver was helpful and guided the group up to the entry point. Saved waiting in a long line.

We were a little disappointed. This tour arrives at Windsor Castle too late in the afternoon. Even though the tour guide/bus driver lets you know some parts of the castle close early, and promises you a map with details and closing time, NO MAP was ever given to us, and there is simply not enough time to get to see the early closing parts based on the arrival time. All this tour needs to do to be a great tour, is arrive one hour earlier in the afternoon, and give you more time to enjoy the castle. Its current timing is slightly foolish, and this pretty much ruined the entire idea of going there.

Great trip, but be prepared to walk a bit before you get to the castle. We were able to view almost all of the castle as well as have a pint at a local pub before making our way back to the bus. Definitely felt it was worth the price.
