We had a great local guide - Cliff! He took great care of us from the moment we boarded our coach for Windsor. We left around 8 am for the drive, and returned to London in the early afternoon where we skipped the lines and toured Buckingham Palace. Highly recommend you use a guided tour - it's worth the fast entry, especially during the busy tourist season in London.

The guide was sooo funny. We had time to see both places, though when you put these two big attractions together, you may not do either one of the full justice, but it worked out ok with the time, just enough..

Loved the tour, I didn’t realise the amount of people who would be at Windsor and out guide and driver got us there nice and early so we could take full advantage of the morning. I’m glad we only booked the Windsor and buckingham palace, anything else would have been too much for 1 day.

Our Guide Dereck was very good at giving us the details of the day as far as timing. He was very knowledgeable as well.

With my love of all things Royal imagine my delight when I discovered that Buckingham Palace was to be open whilst we were in the UK and that it was doubled up with Windsor was just the icing on the cake. Nothing I can say will convey the absolute brilliance of walking through the oldest inhabited Royal Palace in the world or the main London residence of Her Majesty. Windsor was incredible and to try and describe it would be pointless but I will say that the ice cream there was the best I have ever had. Similarly Buckingham Palace is simply breathtaking my only disappointment was that you couldn't take photos inside, which is understandable, but even that couldn't dampen the absolute thrill I got from being there. If you get the chance to see both then don't miss it. Bath in the glory of two of the most beautiful palaces/castles in the world.

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!

Beautiful without a doubt. I was VERY DISAPPOINTED in the journey. We were supposed to have a private coach/van accommodating about pick us up at our hotel. I received an email before we left Canada that the pick up point had been changed to Victoria Coach Station, which was fine as we were right there, but it wasn't a private van it was a full size. That really annoyed me. That's not what I paid for. But in the mean time, Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace are incredible to see. Just a note, there is full on airport type security at the entrances of both sites. So there is a slow line up to get in, but that's to be expected these days I guess.

The palace tour was excellent It was great to see all the palace from the inside We were a bit disappointed with the wait in line at Windsor castle it took nearly an hour to get in and then we didn't have enough time inside We were under the impression that it was a skip the line tour But once we were in it was great
