This tour was fantastic! The meeting place was easy to find and very organized inside the office. The coach to Windsor was delightful and the driver was friendly, knowledgeable, and downright fun. The tour was extremely organized with even some free time to explore the rest of the town before meeting back at the shuttle. Windsor is beautiful and full of history. The queue for the dollhouse was long but it was such a beautiful day that nobody cared. Everything is clearly marked with full descriptions for the history buffs. St. Georges was closed because our tour was on Sunday and the church is closed to tourists in exchange for Sunday services for parishoners. Its so beautiful that its worth a second trip to see. Im so glad to have been a part of this tour and the drive back into London was equally as fun thanks to the driver!!!!!

Very nice amount of leisure time to explore along with the informative guide along the way. This was a nice self paced walk through-out the grounds and in the castle. I was able to explore and see every nook and corner I wanted to see in and out of the castle. It offers the right amount of time fora visit. Highly recommend it when visiting the area.

We went to the tour company site at Victoria Station and got on a very nice bus which drove us directly to Windsor Castle. The bus driver guided us to the entrance of the castle which made our access very easy. It is a self-guided tour and they gave us approximately 2 to 3 hours in the castle before departure.

We had wanted to do Windsor Castle, but to book it through our bus tour company, it was going to be about 70 GB Pounds pp. This trip was considerably less through Viator. The tour company was easy to find, everything was just as advertised and it was a great trip. I highly recommend a trip to Windsor Castle if you are ever in London, and I would not hesitate to book through Viator again!
