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

This was a great tour and wonderful way to spend an 11 hour layover. Jill was so kind, accommodating and knowledgeable. We enjoyed spending the day with her and highly recommend this tour.

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

We booked a Stonehenge and Windsory Castle tour with Jill last January 1, 2015. She was very kind to give us a tour at a very reasonable price considering it was a hoilday. We enjoyed our tour very much because she did more that what was included in our tour. We appreciate how she gave a traditional welcoming gift, side... More

Thank you for your very kind review. It was well worth getting up early to spend the 1st day of January 2016 showing you and your family around as you were a great family to be with. Sorry about the cold weather though ;-) Glad you enjoyed the traditional New Year's customs as well. More

I tried to book a Stonehenge day tour from Heathrow with Jill at the last minute but she was already booked for that day. After I asked, she was gracious enough to offer a variety of other options, which I though was both professional and classy. We weren't able to hire her on this occasion, but I respect her integrity... More

Thank you! I'm sorry I wasn't able to help you on this occasion. But knowing how much I love holidays, I just want others to be able to enjoy theirs too. And it doesn't cost anything to be helpful. I hope I have the pleasure of being able to take you on a tour some other time. More

In July of 2014 my friends and I met Jill for a day tour and we had a blast! We did The Cotswolds tour and Jill was very accommodating, suggesting impromptu changes to see a few sites that were not planned for the trip. She introduced us to Pimm's, a very good refreshing drink for the summer - I bought... More

Thank you for your review. You were such a great group to show around, and up for one of my detours (The Rollright Stones). One of the joys of offering private tours is that I can flex the itinerary even on the day to incorporate something I find out might be of interest. If ever you're back over here, I... More

Went with Jill and a group of friends July 2014 and very slow writing a review. Jill was knowledgeable and took the time to customize the tour based on what we wanted to do. Highly recommend her! Well worth the money!

Our family of 4 had an amazing day through the Cotswolds with Jill. We had looked into other alternatives ways of traveling to the Cotswolds, and we found Jill to be the best price.

Thank you for your lovely review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your day. I think the Rollright Stones don't quite compare with Stonehenge, but I like to think they're quirky and add something a little different to a day in the Cotswolds! But then again, there is so much to see, I don't think I ever do a tour completely... More
