What people are saying about Berkshire

Great trip! New, clean buses with A/C. Left on time. Driver and guide were both very professional. Guide shared lots of knowledge. Passed up the very, very long line to get on to the grounds. Windsor Castle is absolutely stunning. Have to see it to believe it!

The tour itself was great but the booking ticket and app told us to be at the check in point 2 hours earlier than necessary. This was very disappointing and definitely ruined the first half of our day as our hotel was not near the departure point

Booked online and noticed that we needed to take our own headphones. Glad we did as it does make a difference. Pleasant way to spend an hour and nice to sit down after visiting the castle.

We ran out of time so didnt get on the bus until last ride at 4pm. Grateful it was true to schedule or we would have missed out! The drivers were wonderful, friendly, and helpful!
