Windsor CastleWindsor has everything one wants to see in a typical English village: from old haunted houses, to the ancient parish church surrounded by a churchyard and all the surrounding is blending remarkably in theme with the castle.

This tour offers both a good drive through historic areas of London and a view of the pretty English countryside.

Admire the imposing aristocratic Windsor Castle which is the most historic castle in Britain.

State Apartments of Windsor Castle Not only it boasts a majestic external appearance, the interior contains priceless and unique collections of dolls, paintings, furniture, porcelain, arms, armours and tapestries handed down from many generations of monarchs who lived there to the present Queen: HM Elizabeth the II.

Treasures and works of Art are not the only interest in the visitor's mind.

The historic part of the town of Windsor is beautifully preserved, very pleasant and enjoyable for a stroll to Eton College, the ancient school with entitled priviledges and the record of the highest number of students who later became Prime Minister. Traditional Tea-Break, time permitting.
