He was very pleasant and gave a good background briefing about Windsor Castle.

Danielle was the perfect tour guide. Because the tour is only new, we had a very small group which meant Danielle had more time to share her knowledge of a few more sights of Windsor. She was very personable and extremely likable. Thank you Miss Dani for making our trip to Windsor extra special.
