What people are saying about Windsor

David was great - got me there in good time and was lovely to chat to. At Hampton Court, Jacqui was wonderful - she really knows her stuff! Highly recommend if you are looking to go to both and don’t want to manage that on your own.

Excellent attention from the guide and they give you enough time to tour the palace and the chapel, the audio guide that you can ask for at the entrance is very explanatory
