Important Information

If travelling outside London I can arrange a car or a minibus with a chauffeur for your comfort. Extra fee would be applied. Please let me know in advance. If using public transport to travel outside London, I would expect you to cover my travel expenses.

Meeting time and point is calculated presuming that you are staying in central London, travelling to Windsor by car and I am collecting you from your hotel. Otherwise I would meet you at Paddington Station in London or at railway station in Windsor if you are travelling from elsewhere. This tour can be customised in various ways and there are many possible versions of it. While the castle is closed during the pandemic, we can have a shorter walking tour around Windsor and Eton towns. The price would be adjusted accordingly. The Windsor Great Park is worth exploring: it is possible to do it by car stopping for short walks, or a hiking type long walk.
