Description
After our central London pickups we will begin our journey to Windsor. Upon arrival you will be given access to Windsor Castle (entrance included) where you will have plenty of time to learn all about the history of this great site. The original castle was built in the 11th century after the Norman invasion by William the Conqueror and has since been used by monarchs making it the longest-occupied palace in Europe. Today the castle is the Official Residence of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth.

The remainder of the morning/early afternoon can be spent exploring the town of Windsor. You may want to continue with the Royal theme and visit St George's Chapel which is the place of worship at Windsor Castle or perhaps pick up some delicious fudge at The Fudge Kitchen which is a shop full of quirky fudge charm. You can even watch it being made!

We will then begin our journey back to central London (your driver/guide will give you a time and pickup point to meet at). We should arrive back in central London at around 1:30pm.

Pickup and drop off were seamless. The driver was great with lots of information to offer on the drive to the castle. He gave us an extra 1/2 hour too!

Tour guide was great perfect amount of time to see the Castle and town of Windsor glad it didn't take up my whole day.

This tour was the best. We did walk a lot so best be up to it but its worth it. You won't see the Castel any other way unless you know the folks who live there.

We really enjoyed this tour and the driver was very willing to point out interesting places on the way out and back which was helpful as this was our first day in London

Great tour. We had plenty of time to explore on our own and our driver was very informative.

This tour was not long enough for us but despite this we were well looked after.

Such a great tour! Pick up is in London, make sure you exit the Tube on the correct side. We were 10 minutes late to our meeting point because we left the Tube on the wrong side, oops!! Driver/ Guide was super nice and very knowledgeable! We went during Christmas, so there was a Christmas Market right outside the Windsor Castle. There is so much to see here! We were able to see the changing of the Guards. Also, fair warning, you are not allowed to take pictures inside the church or the castle itself, slight bummer. But the castle was amazing! Half day is slightly cutting it though. There is so much to see in the castle and town itself, that we didn't have enough time to do both.

Windsor Castle is amazing. Tour guide is just a driver on this one, so no narrative or background at all during the trip.
Tour is entirely self guided so it is what you make it.
Note that you can get here by rail as well, so this 'tour' is just for a bus and admission. Stars for destination.

Pickup location very hard to find.

The driver was 30 mins late. You only get 2 hours in Windsor. You really need a minimum of 3 hours in order to see everything in the castle and have a little time left for some shopping. You can spend an entire day here so consider taking a train.
