Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Windsor Castle, Castle Hill, Windsor SL4 1PD England

Our first stop is Windsor Castle, the ancestral home of the British Royal family for more than 900 years and the largest, continuously occupied castle in Europe. Marvel at the splendour of the State Apartments, the grandest apartments in England, where paintings by Van Dyck and Rubens hang from the walls and the ceilings are painted with elaborate, magnificent murals.

Step inside St George’s Chapel, where HRH Prince Harry married Ms Meghan Markle and the tombs of prominent previous monarchs are located, including Henry VIII and Charles I. Don’t miss a colourful display of typical British pageantry that takes place every morning at the Changing the Guard ceremony, where the handover of duties between guards to the Queen takes place. If Her Majesty is in Windsor during your visit, you may be lucky enough to see the Royal Standard flying on the flagpole of the Round Tower.

Our guide Manon and bus driver Steve were amazing. Manon really knew her English history and made the trip extremely enjoyable. We visited Windsor castle, Stonehenge (phenomenal) and the city of Oxford. Oxford is chock full of history and shouldn’t be missed. Long day, but worth it. I give it 6 ?’s. Tony V

Rowan and James were a fantastic team. If you ever have Rowan as your tour guide you will be in for a fun day. She is very charismatic. She was funny, witty and extremely knowledgeable. I’ve gone on many tours and never had a guide as good as her.
Highly recommend the tour as well as the guide.
