Windsor Day Tours offers you personalised private tours to and from the Windsor area to popular tourist destinations in the South of England combined with charming, ‘undiscovered gems’ that would otherwise not be possible to visit with large coaches.
Windsor Day Tours specialises in tours out of Heathrow and to/from the Southampton cruise ships and so is the ideal way to transport you and your luggage to or from your hotel, airport or cruise whilst offering you a great day of sight-seeing as well. I also offer day tours out of the Windsor and Farnborough airport areas.
I am licensed to carry between 1 and 6 guests, so you can be assured of my personal attention and desire to provide you with a quality day out and wonderful memories of your time in England, and with Windsor Day Tours.
I want this website to reflect my approach to tours - friendly, fun and informal, but at the same time professional. I hope you enjoy looking through its pages and find a tour of interest to you.
On these pages I have devised tours and itineraries which I’m sure you will like. But don’t forget - this is YOUR tour, so if you wish to customise them, change the timings or whatever, please do ask. I will do my best to accommodate your wishes to make sure you have a wonderful day.

Spring is here!
Allegedly. Whilst it may still be rather cold, grey and damp, at least there are signs of Spring in the blooming of the snowdrops and daffodils. So come on - throw on a coat; bring an umbrella and maybe the sun will shine as we explore the beautiful English countryside. The Cotswolds may seem an obvious choice, but I have a secret weapon in the small villages and towns of Surrey and Hampshire which will surely surprise and delight you. Ask me about these lesser-known gems.
Bicentenary of the death of Jane Austen
18th July is the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death. This is a good year to have a look at my tour which visits her home at Chawton, and her resting place inside Winchester Cathedral. Click on the ‘Jane Austen Country link’ below. I’ll be looking at organising some special tours to commemorate this year, and will include afternoon tea in Hampshire. Ask me for more information.
Coming Soon! New website and a new name!
This website is getting a little old, even though it was a labour of love by my husband. I had hoped to get a new one up and ready for the beginning of the year, but I decided it wasn’t the right look. So we’re in the processing of creating a fab new website which I hope will be finished in the near future. I’ve also decided to change the name to reflect what I do a little better. (I always think ‘Windsor Day Tours’ sounds like I just do tours OF Windsor). So look out for “West of Windsor Private Tours” (or Wow Tours ;-) ). Same great service; great tours, but just a new name and website. Why ‘West of Windsor’? Well, I wanted to keep Windsor in the title as it’s served me well, but I tend to spend most of my time west of the place at Stonehenge, Avebury, Bath etc! Simple really! Ps if you do google, at the moment you’ll just see the old, new version which will be replaced with a new, new version.
