"I wanted to say thank you so very much for all your help in making the carriage ride so memorable for Ryan and his mom.  He has nothing but good things to say about the carriage ride around the estate.  It sounded amazing."

Peggy, Executive Assistant, Canada. Family visit to Windsor. Private drive from The Fairmont Windsor Park around the estate, May 2024, 2 Guests, Queen Victoria Carriage.

"We had a wonderful time in Windsor and London. You might have guessed: The carriage ride was of course a highlight. We felt very comfortable with you and enjoyed the historic informations and stories. We started watching The Gentleman, eagerly awaiting Joey‘s appearance.  He is such a sweetheart! Not sure if we can cross it of the bucket list, though. We‘d like to do it again some other time. We hope that you will continue offering this extraordinary experience."

"Just wanted to say what an absolutely lovely memory you helped create for us on our Anniversary!  We both enjoyed the carriage drive around The Great Park.  Joey is such a good boy and Samuel and Jonathan looked after us both so well.  The weather was perfect too! Thank you so much."

"Thank you so much for Saturday, we had a great time and your knowledge of the park was amazing. Joey is fabulous and for someone not used to horses and ponies it was great to be able to get that close and feel comfortable. Thanks for John for his excellent driving. A lovely day, thank you all Best Christine."

"Dear Rebecca, We had the most marvellous morning with you. It was such a special day, and truly made all the more memorable for your unique insight into the Windsor Great Park community and history. We loved it. How lovely also to discover a common connection with Oundle School! Please pass on our thanks to John also, and to the fabulous Hendricks and Jacob who did a fantastic job. We will remember the experience forever. Fondest thanks."

Rebecca, USA, Visiting Windsor, Estate to Windsor Castle on The Long Walk, October 2023, Queen Victoria Carriage.

"I had the privilege of doing the Crown Experience this morning. I almost cancelled due to bad weather but was assured that I would have an enjoyable experience - and I did. Rebecca (guide) and John (driver) and of course, Joe, our magnificent horse made the morning an amazing experience. Both were very personable, and knowledgeable - I thoroughly enjoyed the history as well as the local stories - providing a real insight in to the Great Park and the families who care for it. Highly recommend!"

Railene, Australia, Visiting Windsor, July 2023, King John Carriage.

"We felt like royalty on our Crown Tour on a beautiful summer evening. Rebecca was a pleasure and she even arranged our hotel pick up and drop off. Our carriage was exquisite. We enjoyed conversation with our groom and coachman and we were honored to have Prince and Captain as our horses. The views were stunning and the champagne made it perfect. Truly a memorable experience!"

Caron, Private drive, Florida, USA, Visiting Windsor, July 2023, Queen Victoria Carriage.

"Thank you for an amazing experience. We all had a wonderful time and especially loved Joey (he was such a good boy). Also a shout out for Rebecca and Jonathan for sharing their knowledge and stories of the park.  A very special day for everyone and we really appreciated the bottle of sparkling wine. 

Also thank you for organising lunch at the guards polo club. It made the day even more magical. The food and drink was excellent and we could even see some polo practice going on in the distance. 

The girls had such a wonderful time that they are keen to make it a yearly or every two year experience. 

I’ll have to get in touch again about future dates for 2024."

Emma, UK, Private drive,40th Birthday Celebration for 7 guests, Sept 2023, King George Carriage.

"An absolutely wonderful experience. The groom and driver were great fun, very knowledgeable and looked after us royally. The 2 seater Queen Victoria Carriage is definitely the way to see Windsor Park with classic lines and a very comfortable ride. Stopping for champagne at great view points, seeing so many deer with their young and of course, the star of the entire ride, Joey, a magnificent horse with lots of character and a very real sense of humour. We now have lovely memories of our 45th wedding anniversary. Many thanks to Windsor Carriages."

Keith, UK, Private drive, June 2023, 45th Wedding Anniversary, Queen Victoria Carriage.

"Booked for my inlaws who have just come back from Vietnam; they said today was one of the best days of their lives! They literally couldn't believe what they were doing. Just Brilliant! - thank you."

Mark, UK, Heritage Scheduled Ride, April 2023.

"Thank you so much for a wonderful time today.  We all fell in love with Joey - an absolute superstar!  John and his lovely groom couldn’t have looked after us any better. Just magical!"

Katie, France, Heritage Scheduled Ride, April 2023.

"The carriage ride on Sunday was perfect - wonderful mothers day present. Beautiful route through the park, stopped off at some ancient trees, excellent commentary and handsome horses - we were well looked after - thank you."

Sonia, UK, Legacy Tour, March 2023, Mothers Day Celebration. 

"My parents John & Yvonne owen had the most amazing time, this was a Christmas gift for them, throughout the entire experience from booking to rescheduling due to poor health the office team were extremely professional and friendly on every occasion contact was made. Upon arrival yesterday from watching the changing of the guards to meeting Joey 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 ."

Jen, UK, Legacy Tour, March 2023, Christmas celebration. 

"From the moment we contacted Windsor Carriages about an event group booking, Rebecca was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Her and the team's pride in offering carriage rides in Windsor Great Park shines through and Rebecca's knowledge and advice on the best experience to offer our 30 guests was spot on, ensuring that every one of them felt like they were receiving a truly bespoke service. The horses and the carriage are beautiful and the setting is second to none. All in all, a faultless service and one-of-a-kind experience that our guests will no doubt talk about for years to come."
