Private Tour At Windsor

Private tours: driver/guide on Eton Bridge, Windsor


Whether you are a couple, a family group or a larger group we can offer a professional guided tour to your specifications in a vehicle consistent with your group size.

 

Tours both within London and to places like Windsor, Stonehenge and Shakespeare's Stratford Upon Avon are catered for.

 

Each private guided tour is designed to offer clients the most interesting and full day out, at their own pace and stopping for as little or as long as they wish.

 

Driver/guides are mature individuals who care for their clients needs and offer the best and friendliest service.


Note: The quality driver/guides that we use are normally booked up solid several weeks ahead during the peak season of June to September. If you require a custom tour within this period please contact us well in advance to avoid disappointment otherwise you might be dependent on late cancellations for an offer.

 

Where do you go on private tours?

The choice is yours!

 

All tours are customised around your individual needs. We have outlined some of our most popular tours and their relative distances to central London and each other in the graphic below.


But if you have been researching your vacation and have a precise idea of where you want to go, just say what you want to do. Unless there are real logistical problems that make your requirements unrealistic, chances are we can meet your needs exactly - perhaps even help refining them for you.

 

Transfer tours, particularly meeting off a cruise at Southampton, Harwich or Dover are a speciality.

 

How long are the tours?

Again it is up to you, but most are 7-9 hours in duration. No need to get up at a very early hour like the scheduled big coach tours, time to have breakfast in your hotel and be off at a civilised hour.


Most attractions people want to see are open during daylight hours so a departure around 8.30, returning around 5.30pm seems to be most people's preferred choice. But at the end of the day, you are the customer, you decide.

 

Tour planning

Some people have a tight specification of exactly what they want, others just have a broad idea of what they like and want to see and let us plan something that meets that need. We are comfortable with either type of request.


Below is a crude map of travel times between the some of the main places of interest outside London. You may want to put your own itinerary together and run it past us for comment.

 

A common request consists of a long list of places pulled out of a guide book that would need 3 or 4 days to cover, we would suggest the most satisfied customers are those who limit themselves two two major attractions in a day, three at most.

Large 50 Seat Tour Bus

We use a variety of cars and small vans suited to touring from small MPV style cars to 7 seat Volkswagen minivans like that pictured right.

 

The largest vehicles can carry approximately 8 large cases between 10-23 kg plus hand luggage.

 

The cars and Volkswagen minivans are able to enter the car parks next to the passenger terminals at Heathrow so you have a short walk when you exit the customs and baggage halls and a fast getaway.

 

Small groups of 8 to 16

For groups of 7 to 16 people the standard vehicle is our 16 seat air conditioned Mercedes mini-coaches, the same vehicles that perform our public small group day tours from London.

 

These small coaches can drive down the country lanes and visit villages the large tour buses cannot, so they come into their own when visiting places like the Cotswolds.

 

Large groups of more than 16

Once you go above 16 seats you will need a full size touring coach with anything from 24 seats to 60 seats. For these you will have a dedicated driver and a separate guide.

 

Prices of the largest coaches are not that much more than the smaller capacity coaches so price per person can dramatically fall the larger your group is.
