Toru, Head Concierge - Belmond Cadogan Hotel

We are back in the US, and yes, we had a FABULOUS time! All of our drivers and guides were friendly and prompt. Our guides were very knowledgeable, very personable, and just terrific (we especially enjoyed our Windsor guide). Even our two teenagers didn’t get bored! I think we picked all of the right sites to see, and for the right lengths of time. We had perfect weather every day as well. All in all, everything was wonderful, and we appreciate all of your help in designing the tours and time frames. Overall, the dining was fabulous as well. So again, thank you for all of your help…I think it was our favourite family trip that we’ve taken, and we made some fabulous memories!

P Santucci

Thank you for setting up the palace tour and helping out with the information and guides. The tour went above and beyond our expectations. We enjoyed it immensely. Wow. What a place.

S Rucker

The Windsor Castle experience was an unforgettable one for my daughter and I. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with the extremely knowledgable Amanda who seemed to know every intricate detail about the castle. Seemingly tailored specifically to ourselves, the tour was enlightening and very professional. Humphrey’s ensured every aspect of our trip was well organised. Wouldn’t hesitate to use for further trips in the area.
