Visit Windsor and see the breathtaking sights and attractions on board one of our open top double decker buses. Windsor is packed with plenty of things to see, tickets are valid for 24 hours allowing visitors to get on and off the bus at the 11 hop-on-hop-off stops that are of interest along the route.

The circular route takes 60 minutes and the commentary is available in 10 languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Polish, Mandarin, Japanese and Cantonese.

Tours begin opposite the Theatre Royal, Thames Street but you can join the bus on its first stop just up the hill outside the Castle, by Queen Victoria Statue. Buying tickets is easy, either purchase in advance online or from any tour bus driver.

    This has to be one of the best of these type of bus deals. Good commentary. I also found it gave me a sense of geography of the area. And of course you can get on and off at will. Read full review
