Windsor Day Tours offers small, personalised private day tours for up to 6 people from Windsor, Heathrow, Southampton and surrounding areas. Whether it's a day's sightseeing, or a Heathrow Layover, or transfer to your hotel, make the most of your day with a guided visit to the Cotswolds, Stonehenge, Hampton Court Palace, Jane Austen country or similar. Travel in comfort in my top-of-the-range Seat Alhambra and enjoy a day created with your wishes in mind, as well as the ability to get off the beaten track and visit the countryside the big coaches can't reach. Heathrow layovers and Southampton Cruises a speciality.

We booked a tour on our last day in England before an early flight at Heathrow the next morning. We were picked up at a hotel near Heathrow and ended up having a wonderful experience. Jill scheduled everything so we would have enough time to see Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, and an afternoon tea. We were able to spend our last... More

After a tumultuous start to our journey (my family and I are NOT used to places like Heathrow!), Jill Pretorius was the perfect person to greet us and introduce us to the United Kingdom beyond the airport. She instantly set us at ease, expertly worked around any challenges presented by my mother's mobility issues, and helped us make memories for... More

Jill's meticulous attention to detail made our 1st day of vacation so easy and enjoyable. She made reliable arrangements for our transportation to and from our meeting spot and was patient and kind with 6 of us pouring in and out of her car all day, asking questions, snoring in the back seat, etc. She is not only knowedgable but...

We hire Jill for a tour to Windsor castle during our 11 hour layover in England. She met us at the airport and drove us to Windsor. Great conversation in the car and she was a wealth of information.

In Stonehenge you are allowed to walk amidst the stones on the day of the spring equinox ( and at least 3 other days of the year, I am told). You can also partake in the rituals of the Druids as they usher in spring. Signing up with Jill from Windsor day tours was a good decision. She organized the... More

Thank you for your kind review. It was certainly a special event being at Stonehenge for the spring equinox, wasn't it?! Yes, only Windsor Castle-authorised Blue Badge Guides are permitted to guide within the Precincts of Windsor Castle, and even they can't give tours inside the State Apartments. I sometimes do show people around Salisbury Cathedral - depends on a... More

We had one day in Windsor and after touring the castle on our own, Jill picked us up right on time at our hotel. She then took us to Stonehenge stopping at her favorite village along the way so we could see some thatched roof huts. The trip was comfortable and pleasant and Jill made it informative. She pointed out... More
