A Windsor based walking tour has been rated best in the UK for the fourth year running.

The survey was conducted by Irish coach tour operator CIE Tours International, which recognises the quality of the UK’s hotels and visitor attractions by giving an Award of Excellence to those who have received a greater than 90 per cent customer satisfaction rating.

The company gives special recognition to the best performing tourism provider in nine categories and the walk offered by Windsor Tourist Guides Ltd was rated highest in their category, meaning that they were judged best in the UK by more than 15,000 visitors who CIE brought to the UK in 2018.

Elizabeth Crabill, chief executive CIE Tours International said: “Our awards are well recognised and hugely respected in Ireland and it is great to see that the awards have been embraced so quickly in the UK.

“Travellers from North America are accustomed to very high levels of service, so we run the awards to encourage our partners to focus on continuously increasing the quality of our visitors’ experience. To achieve a rating above 90% from these travellers is very meaningful and the fact that the number of our suppliers in the UK achieving this is rapidly increasing year on year, is a great sign for UK tourism.”

CIE Tours International is Ireland’s leading inbound tour operator, having brought more than four million visitors from North America to tour Ireland over the course of its 87-year history.
