What people are saying about Windsor

I was picked up at the right time and our narrator for my tour Trish was nice and she gave us the full history of Windsor & Eton Riverside. She even got us ready to take pictures before approaching some buildings like the Windsor Castle, the Cathedral & riverside. She spared her time to take my picture too and everyone likes the picture. She got to know where we came from and showed us where to take the boat if we had paid for it and where to eat. I had a fabulous time on the Hop-on Hop-off open Top Bus Tour and I hope to go back soon. It’s worth more than the price.

Great easy way to see the town ,castle ,Eaton collage and the beautiful surroundings. I cannot praise your staff on the bus enough, I was travelling alone and have mobility concerns, without me asking your guys were considerate and so kind carrying my bags and stick to the top of the bus one even offered to carry me up the stairs. It was all done smoothly without making me feel embarrassed or hurried I really appreciated their lovely attitude. Excellent driver too around those tight bends he always slowed for a bump in the road. Thank you for a fun trip.

The staff were very friendly, it didn’t take long (which was good as we had a day of activities planned), was fun to do and our chocolates were delicious.

Great beautiful and wonderful place for fun. I enjoyed the pleasures that were made for the guests.

A magical experience. Very nice and fun place for fun.
