I love discussing England past & present with my guests while we journey to Windsor in my Mercedes. We can talk about the castle itself, or any other aspect of our long history that may interest you, from the Norman Conquest to the Battle of Britain.
As well as showing the treasures on view, I like to illustrate further aspects of the history of this ancient place by sharing materials I have prepared via my tablet, staying close to my guests and talking them through the history personally, although audio guides are also available.
Accompanying my guests through St Georges Chapel we can share the wonder of England's gothic masterpiece, soak up the indefinable atmosphere that a space with so much history creates, and stand on the tombs of some of the mightiest Kings of England. After catching the changing of the guard we can wander along the north terrace, gaze across the Thames to Eton before taking in the splendours of the state rooms and St Georges Hall.

My 2 grandsons, aged 11 and 2, and myself spent the day touring Windsor Castle today. Mark, our guide is extremely personable and knowledgeable. He tailored this tour to keep it interesting for both my grandsons and myself. His knowledge of the castle and history make for a fascinating day. From the marching guards to St. George’s hall Mark kept our interest. We all learned from out tour. At the end of our tour we also fed the swans which my grandsons really enjoyed. If i could give this tour 10 stars I would. If you are looking for a tour of Windsor Castle this is the one to do!

My mother, daughter and I enjoyed our time with Mark immensely! He was personable, knowlegeable and had wonderful information and stores to tell! He found a shady spot for my mom to watch the changing of the guard, which pleased her greatly! We invited Mark to join us for a delicious meal at one of the local pubs, which gave us more time to absorb Mark's knowledge. Plenty of time to explore Windsor Castle and town, with a nice walk to the river. We will definitely call on Mark the next time we are in London!

It was an incredible experience to witness the history of Windsor Castle through a private guide and tour. Mark was the most professional expert and quite full of helpful information. He is affable and kind. He made the experience incredibly special and my mother and I will never forget it. I’ll definitely be back to take more of his tours! Windsor Castle is something not to be missed! But don’t go with a whole crowd of tourists where you won’t get great information. Going with the private guide is definitely the way to go!
