Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Windsor Castle, Castle Hill, Windsor SL4 1PD England

The town of Windsor is best known for its historical links to the British royal family, and it is suitably steeped in pageantry and history.
Towering over the rest of the town is Windsor Castle, the ancestral home of the English and later British monarchy, and largest inhabited castle in the world.
It has been the family home of British kings and queens for almost 1,000 years and is today one of the official residences of His Majesty The King.
Occupying over 10.5 hectares, the Castle offers a varied day out for visitors, including a visit to the magnificent State Apartments and St George's Chapel. The Castle's State Apartments are furnished with some of the finest works from the Royal Collection, reflecting the changing tastes of the Castle's royal occupants, particularly those of Charles II and George IV.

If you decide not to include admission to Windsor Castle, you will have free time in Windsor town.

We were so disappointed on this tour. Yesterday’s La Vacanza Travel trip was great. Today’s tour was a waste of money. Stonehenge was the saving grace and wonderful. Walking Tour of Oxford, so disappointing. The walk around Oxford consisted of quite a distance from where bus parked, up one sidewalk and into an enclosed courtyard. There, we stood in one spot and heard more history of Oxford and the Tour Director read the names of the studies provided on classroom doors. It was NOT a tour of Oxford.. It was a walk to one part of Oxford. Then on to Windsor Castle. When I began to book my tours, I saw that Windsor Castle was closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Before I booked a Tuesday tour, I contacted La Vacanza Travel customer service via email. I have it in writing that the closures only apply to on-site purchases, not prepaid tours, and yes, you will be going inside Windsor Castle. Guess what? We walked the perimeter of the grounds and viewed the front of Windsor through an iron gate far, far, away. I would not tour with Saul again as he just talked nonsense constantly to try to entertain us. I did rate this as I would recommend. If it were done properly, it would be a great tour.

We set out on this day for an adventure and we had a wonderful one - we started at Oxford with a great introduction to the area from Mel - later we visited Stonehenge and that was just perfect - lastly an interesting overview of Windsor from Mel and then time to visit the town - all in all an amazing experience - thanks to Mel and Evan Evans Tours!!

Very interesting place. Guides are very helpful. Highly recommended. You can walk to the site but definitely best to use the shuttle system.

A great overview of sites but very, very quick. If you're pressed for time then I would highly suggest it but I found myself wanting more time everywhere! The coach was clean, and timely, and the guide + driver were professional and courteous.
