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

No trip to Windsor could possibly be complete without a visit to amazing Windsor Castle, the family home to British kings and queens for over 1,000 years.
Tour includes
Eton College, home of one of England's famous public schools; President John F Kennedy Memorial site Windsor Great Park and Runnymede Birth place of freedom, where King John sealed the Magna carta (The Magna Carta, also known as the Great Charter to the Liberties of England, is a document originally issued in Latin in the year 1215. The Great Charter is truly great, because it was the first legal document to establish that leaders did not have arbitrary power, granted under Divine Authority, but instead were subject to the law of the land. The feudal barons forced King John of England to sign the Magna Carta in an attempt to limit his powers by law and protect their rights. In a way, it was the world's very first written Constitution. The charter was a major part of the process that led to the rule of constitutional law in the English speaking world, an ideal which was eventually transported to the New World. It would inspire the Founding Fathers to draft a new document, the United States Constitution. As a tribute to its influence, a copy of the Magna Carter is housed in the Temple of Founding History, the National Archive, in Washington D.C.)

Stop At: Hampton Court Palace, A308, East Molesey KT8 9AU England

Hampton Court Palace. Hampton Court was built by Cardinal Wolsey. There will be time to visit the lovely gardens, maze and State rooms.
500 years of garden history
These gardens, now visited by thousands of people every year, were once the exclusive playground of kings and queens. New ideas and designs arrived with each new era, from the Tudors through to the Victorians.
Today the Gardens and Estate team continue the work of past royal gardeners.
Monarchs and their gardeners have all influenced the gardens in different ways. In the early 1500s Cardinal Wolsey laid out the first small knot gardens, before Henry VIII took over the palace, strutting through his heraldic Privy Garden.
From Charles II’s elegant Long Water, to William III & Mary II’s fine baroque gardens, including the Maze, to dazzling displays of Victorian mass bedding, Hampton Court Gardens have always been at the cutting edge of design.

I have a mixed review for this. First I feel it was false advertising as this was NOT A TOUR. It was a PRIVATE DRIVER. All the other private tours I booked or tours for that matter were just that a person that guided us and gave information of the site we were seeing. Although the DRIVER was pleasant and the car was nice this is not what I thought I paid for. Once we arrived at Windsor castle we struggled getting tickets and the data signal was poor. This delayed us at least an hour. (I had to pay extra for going over the 6 hours which the driver did inform us ahead of time) However Windsor Castle and Hampton court were one of our favorites places this whole trip and are a must see. If you book understand this is essentially an expensive ride to and from and that’s it!
