A royal visit with your own private guide to two famous Royal Palaces


One of the jewels in the crown of London, Hampton Court Palace has been a magnet for centuries, since the times of the Knights Hospitalliers.

It used to be a dwelling for kings and still is incredibly impressive, attracting thousands of visitors. There is so much to do in every season of the year!

Frequently it is the place where period films are produced; it hosts various national shows, and in winter it even has an ice rink!

Now, you have a chance to experience it, too, in all its glory, - well preserved for more than 500 years!

I will show you the magnificent palace where one of the most famous English kings lived with most of his 6 wives, beautiful gardens and we would marvel to the grandeur of Henry's massive kitchens!

The second part of the day is dedicated to the favourite home of Her Majesty - Windsor castle. We are only allowed to visit the State Apartments, but this is something not to be missed!

After this - St George's Chapel, if open.

On the way back we drive through the Royal Park.

Itinerary

Hampton Court: Palace itself, with numerous halls, Royal Chapel and quite a few exhibitions. Adjourned park with beautiful miniature gardens. Royal Kitchens of Henry VIII.

Windsor castle boasts 1000 years of history and is not only an official residence of Her Majesty the Queen, but this iconic national treasure allows you to visit its lavishly decorated State Apartments.
We also can pay a short visit to St George's Chapel (subject to availability).

On the way back we usually drive through the Royal Windsor Park and famous Runnymede, where in 1215 Magna Carta was sealed by King John (Lackland).

What’s Included

Other: My aim is to provide the high quality tours. Therefore, safety of my clients is paramount. With this in mind, my tours combine both a professional tour guide and an experienced chauffeur.

The tours offered in the latest model Mercedes saloon with leather seats with the chauffeur fully concentrated on your safety and comfort, where as I take care of the content and delivery of the tour, itself.

My tour commentary and dialogue is delivered both at our destinations and on our way to them. In order to maximise your enjoyment and knowledge, I usually show various materials, maps, photographs about the destination - all of this while we are travelling in the car. This means you will have my undivided attention as I do not need to be distracted by looking on the road and map navigation devices, nor searching for directions. All of that would be performed by our experienced chauffeur.

I feel that, in this way, I can provide a safe and enjoyable tour that you rightly deserve.

A Recent Review of this tour

This was our second day with Marina. And once again she did not disappoint... WOW... There probably is not enough time in the day for her to get all of the knowledge she possesses about the people and places she brings a client to. There really are not enough words to describe her passion and professionalism she exudes naturally. We will truly miss her as we feel we are now leaving a close friend. We have never had a more rewarding experience and we have many.... she is a credit to her craft!
