Before we start our Windsor Castle Tour, you have a truly spectacular view.  Marvel at the medieval castle, nestled right in the heart of a modern town centre. 

Once we clear security, we are inside the Royal residence with a vast area to explore. Let’s start by taking a short stroll to see if Her Majesty is in today? Moving on we pass the original parts of the castle, dating from the 11th Century.  Before moving inside, there’s also time here to admire the perfectly manicured gardens.

Visiting Windsor Castle 

Your private guide can explain why the castle was built here, then you can enjoy the views from the North terrace 30m (100ft) above the River Thames. When entering the State Apartments prepare to be dazzled by the decorative gold, rooms truly fit for a King or Queen. There is so much to see on a Windsor Castle tour, where else can you find pieces by Titian and Rembrandt hanging next to each other? All the artefacts are part of the Royal collection, they are moved around the castle and sometimes loaned to other exhibits.  Don’t worry though, your Blue Badge Guide will make sure you see the best of what’s on display during your private tour of Windsor Castle. 

Leaving the State Apartments we have time to visit the gift shop, maybe you’d like your own gold ornament to dazzle your guests at home! 

Royal Weddings & Burials

Now is our chance to visit somewhere famous from more recent history, St Georges chapel. Venue for the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, but also many more weddings over the years. We are aware of its recent use as a working church, but your private guide can tell you much more about this beautiful gothic structure. Final resting place for several British Monarchs, mind your step, don’t tread on the tomb of Henry VIII as we make our way around!

Before our tour leaves the Windsor Castle grounds, you have a chance to take picture of the Queen’s guards.  These soldiers in their beautiful uniforms, make sure all is safe within the walls of the Royal residence. 

Exploring Windsor and Eton

Back in the town centre, we start our stroll. Let’s explore the shortest street in England, it will take only seconds. Walking towards the Long Walk we’re treated again to spectacular views of Windsor Castle. This 2.64-mile walk is lined mostly with oak trees and still used today by the Royal Family, as they make their way to annual horse racing events at nearby Ascot.

Walking across a Windsor Bridge over the River Thames we arrive in Eton.  Your guide will explain all about the education pupils receive here at Eton College and tell you about the Old Etonians, many of whom you will recognise, such as:

  • Boris Johnson
  • Prince William
  • George Orwell
  • Bear Grylls
  • Ian Flemming

We then have time to browse Eton High Street admiring the local architecture and the exterior of this famous college.

Your guide will escort you back to Windsor town and happily help with directions or suggestions for the rest of your stay.  If you enjoyed your Tour of Windsor Castle, we’re sure you’d also enjoy a Tower of London Tour.

Fantastic! Marina was superb. I took this tour with my husband and three sons (20,18.17). Loved that we had a small group and could ask questions. Note this tours doesn't include skip the line tickets. We ended up seeing the crown jewels at the end of the day to avoid the ridiculously long line.

Best Tour of London Tower Denisa gave us an amazing tour of London Tower. She was knowledgeable and provided a wonderfully historical tour, holding the attention of a 14 and 15 year old. Denisa is top notch. Try and secure her when you book any tour! Loved hearing about the history of the ravens and, of course, the palace intrigue.

Great Tour! Sarah was amazing and gave us a great introduction to York! We only had a few days to spend there and this was a wonderful way to make a list of the places we wanted to visit. Highly recommend!

Wonderful Tour! Kids learned so much! I have never had a tour in a museum before, but wow. I will definitely do it again! Our guide explained the history and folklore behind the paintings. It was like a friend taking you to her favorite places. Our children age 9 and 11 were able to remember what paintings we saw and why they were important. 10/10 would definitely recommend!

LOVE Denisa! We had a group with 6 kids and she was absolutely incredible! Very informative and extremely engaging with the children! We did a trip to Paris with a “children specialist” tour and she was just as good if not better!! It felt like we were hanging out with a local friend from the first minute we met her. We recommend her highly and we hope to book again with her in the future!

Private walking tour of London and private tour of Tower of London Our family of four took two tours on two different days with Denisa. We took a walking tour of London as well as a tour of the Tower of London. We found her to be extremely friendly and knowledgeable. She had a wealth of information about everything that she showed us. She even knew smal details like the names of the ravens at the Tower! We would highly recommend any tour with Denisa!

Wonderful walk around... We had a great day with Denisa - we are a family with two relatively small children and we saw a lot of this wonderful city (Westminster, St. Pauls, Tower etc.). Everything was well prepared and with all this specific knowledge it is much easier to get around - very quick and to the point. Denisa knows a lot of the background and she made it very targeted to the kids. She gave us a few great tips on restaurants and other things to see by ourselves. Very recommendable !

Brilliant London Visit Living at the other end of the country we don't visit too often, or know London very well, but Denisa made lots of very useful and practical suggestions and made sure that we fitted in everything that we were looking for. Her knowledge of the City is excellent, whether it is of the tourist haunts, the historical areas or shopping and eating. She even helped direct us to a great area to stay when visiting the City, which was handy for everything we wanted to do. On top of all that the 2 hour tour we did with her showed us St Paul's and beyond, including the Tower, an area we hadn't really seen before. Lots of information and a good pace with a friendly and very flexible approach. We would not hesitate in recommending her for anyone else visiting London, whether they think they know where they would like to go, or have no idea and we will be booking Denisa again for future visits. First class.

Tour of London I booked a tour with Denisa for my partner and I on a short trip to London. It is clear that she really knows a lot about many different historical and cultural aspects of the city. We spent 2 hours in the National Gallery looking at a number of paintings and were given a comprehensive tour of the highlights. Denisa also gave us a walking tour round some of the sights of the city. She was more than happy to adapt her tour to our interests and the small amount of time we had. Would highly recommend her for your trip to London.
