Jill planned and hosted a marvelous one day trip for my granddaughter, my wife and me of Stratford Upon Avon and the Cotswolds on June 28, 2014. Though my wife and I had lived in the UK and previously traveled to these places, our granddaughter, on her 16 year old trip with us, wanted to experience them as well. In... More

Thank you for your lovely review. I am delighted when I can show my visitors the best parts of the English countryside, way of life and culture. But I have to agree - that cream tea was an excellent find! Bay Tree Hotel, Burford, in case anyone else would like to sample it. More

I just spent two wonderful days with Jill guiding me through Winchester, New Forest with cream tea in a wonderful old thatched cottage, Avebury and West Kennet Long Barrow. Just some highlights, as we saw many other beautiful little spots Jill is so much fun to be with, and while never rushing has great timing. In my second day she... More

Jill of Windsor Day Tours will help you plan your own personal tour. My daughter and I are huge Jane Austen fans, Sarah was on the Titanic in her previous life and we all wanted to see Stonehenge. I started to plan the trip in August 2013 and of course, over-estimated what we would be able to accomplish. Jill was... More

Thank you for your review which is much appreciated. I'm glad you enjoyed your tour, and not having to battle the London traffic! It's a good way of providing you with a longer tour (ie actually seeing places) too as I don't have to include the time driving in and out of London within my driving hours. I should perhaps... More

Jill met wife and I at Heathrow after our plane was late and hurried us off to Windsor Castle in time to see St George Church and parts of the castle before closing. We then proceeded to Stonehenge for a special evening session that was hard to describe. Then off to the Lions pub for kidney pot pie and "... More

Thank you for your kind review. I'm glad you had a good afternoon and evening with me. Stonehenge special access is ... well... 'special', isn't it! I hope I have the pleasure of showing you more of our lovely country some other time too. More

We booked a tour of Stonehenge for the early morning hours in December 2013, so we could go inside the circle. Jill picked us up at our central London hotel at 6:00 AM on time, and drove us out to Stonehenge. From previous emails in setting up the private tour, she paid very close attention to what our interests were... More

Jill developed a tour itinerary specifically to meet the needs of my party of three, which included one person with significant mobility issues. My mother had only spent time in central London and wanted to see some of the countryside during our transit day on our way to Southampton for a cruise. Jill took us to a quaint village, giving...

We had only limited time at the very end of a long trip but Jill's tour was fantastic!! We only had an afternoon to visit Stonehenge and environs so our time was quite compressed. On top of this there was a major traffic snafu which required a detour. Jill managed to find an alternate route and we made it to... More

We would highly recommend Jill for any type of tour but we chose the half day mystery tour. We were looking for something different and not your typical sightseeing tour. Jill came through and provided us with a fantastic afternoon of unique out of the way spots that we would have never seen if it wasn't for Windsor Day Tours.... More

Absolutely loved Windsor Day Tours. Jill was right at the port to meet us after we disembarked a P&O Cruise. She was so friendly and hospitable! Our first stop after seeing freely roaming animals (donkeys, cows, horses, pigs, etc) as we drove through New Forest was Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's grave (author of Sherlock Holmes) and Jill provided interesting and...

We had a day to spend in the Southampton area and booked a tour with Jill. Prior to meeting her, she was a great communicator, always answer my questions promptly. She was waiting with a sign at our arrival and off we went. We had arranged with he to pre-purchase the tickets for Windsor Castle so we got there as... More
