Full description
Take a fascinating trip through centuries of royal history on a half-day afternoon tour of Windsor Castle, with round-trip transfers from central London.

It is quite difficult to locate the exit of the tour. Although it is offered as a tour is Spanish, it is not. However, the good work of the driver and guide to the castle makes it possible to follow the explanations. The treatment of the driver is exceptional. Highly recommended excursion.
