Jill is friendly and knows so much about the Cotswolds and lovely sights. She also provides context through history and current goings-on. We enjoyed a wonderful day at the end of the season, and Jill was able to adapt to our logistics needs and preferences through the day.

What to do with a 9 hour layover?? Book a day trip with Windsor Day Tours. I was met at the airport by Jill and privately escorted to Stonehenge, Windsor Castle and for English Fish and Chips for lunch. It was so nice and relaxing. It was a little chiller than I had expected and Jill had a coat and... More

We customized a special day trip with Jill via email prior to flying from Los Angeles to Healthrow in early November 2016. Jill provided and we discussed several options based on our time and interests. She arranged a custom tour to visit Hampton Court Palace and my husband and I loved our personalized driving tour of the Sussex countryside. We... More

Thank you for your lovely review - I'm glad you enjoyed HCP, even though it was a cold day. And Shere is very special, isn't it? Although I should just point out it's Surrey, not Sussex ;-) But if ever you're over again, maybe I can show you some of the picturesque delights of that county too! More

Highly recommend the Surrey Secrets day tour! It was a fantastic day taking in the beautiful and varied Royal Horticultural Society Wisley Gardens set on 240 acres, the quaint medieval village of Shere and the magical Elizabethan Loseley House, which has remained in the same family and has an enormous collection of historical artefacts from across the centuries.

Jill is personable, pleasant and very knowledgeable. She customized our tour for us and provided great information along the way. She was on time picking us up and spent as much time at each location as we wanted. I would heartily recommend her services and us her again!

My husband, two teenagers and myself had a stopover in London for one night and a day. As I tried scheduling what we could do, I kept getting sidetracked with how to get there, where to store the luggage, then pick it up and how to return to the airport. I was so grateful when I found Windsor Day Tours.... More

On our way from Hawaii to Athens, we had a very long layover at Heathrow. My wife had read about layover tours, and since Stonehenge had a prominent place on our bucket list, we decided to see if we could arrange it. We emailed Jill Pretorius of Windsor Day Tours and had a response the very next day. We set... More
