A great tour, value for money and a real eye opener, especially being able to actually enter Buckingham palace. I would recommend it to anyone!
Very educational and entertaining. Gives you an insight into the history of the Royal Family.
Absolutely stunning! Beautiful places and buildings. Ample time was alloted for each attraction. The tours were conducted very professionally. Pick-ups were convinient and punctual. Tour guide was knowledgable, helpful and informative.
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.
Highlight was being able to enter Buckingham Palace which can only be done during certain months.
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.
