Great facts about London on the drive to Windsor. Very interesting tour of the chapel. Guidance of what to look for on the audio tour of the state rooms. And a recommendation to see the Dolls House that had just reopened. Very cool. Sheila and Alex made the day seamless and easy. Very enjoyable!

Hampton Court is easy to navigate with headset tour. Very worthwhile place to visit. Stunning surroundings. Great Tudor history. Our driver arrived a bit late to pick us up but it was rail strike day, so traffic was heavier than usual. Very clean and safe Mercedes van for transport.
