Experience Windsor Town

Legacy Tour

Windsor Carriages

''Upon arrival yesterday from watching the changing of the guards to meeting Joey <the horse> and the carriage drivers, the service was five star start to finish when dropping them off at the Windsor Hotel for afternoon Tea. My parents said that the information and general conversation was educational along with both being extremely friendly and welcoming. We own horses ourselves so this was such a treat for them both, we would definitely return and highly recommend to all for the overall experience."
