Two royal residences in one day! Both Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle have ornately furnished rooms and priceless artifacts. The visit to Buckingham Palace is a special treat, as it's only open certain times of the year and you get to explore it on your own.
Wonderful Day - Kind of confusing getting started!
Tour was excellent but wished there more time allowed to spend in the rooms.
This is a really great trip to both castles. I would just warn people who are unable to walk far distances that this may not be a great selection. There is a 15 minute walk uphill just to get to Windsor castle from the bus lot and a 10 minute walk after Buckingham palace just to get off the palace grounds. For a tour that is already heavy on the walking, the extra miles add up quickly.
We had an excellent guide for Windsor Castle. She gave us a lot of background information on the way there and was very friendly and helpful. We had a different guide at Buckingham Palace. We had to wait 15 or 20 minutes before we were allowed to enter the palace. Other than that, we enjoyed the Buckingham Palace tour.
The trip is amazing! Very interesting. The guides are not allowed in either of the residences, only audio guides provided. Definitely recommend!
Convenient pick up at hotel took us to the coach station were we boarded a bus to Windsor Castle. Windsor Castle, the grounds, St. Georges chapel, the quaint surrounding town are not to be missed. Then we headed to Buckingham Palace where we had time to grab lunch before entry and spend as much time there as we wanted. Our guide on the bus was very informative and amusing, making it quite a pleasant ride.
Great tour, and great guide! Everything about this tour was great, with the exception of the weather. We had requested a sunny day, but I guess that part of our request was denied!
I totally recommend this tour.
